Since the early '90s, the best-selling vehicle in the United States remained the Ford F-Series full-size pickup.

Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]

1991[edit | edit source]

An earlier eighth-generation Ford F-Series was available as either an F150 or F250. The F150 had base Styleside, S Styleside and Super Cab trim levels, each as Short or Long Bed pickup trucks, while the F250 only had base Styleside and Super Cab Long Bed pickup trucks.

1992[edit | edit source]

The Ford F-Series was redesigned for its ninth generation.

1995[edit | edit source]

The vehicle was essentially carried over for 1995, though it did receive a number of small but important improvements that ran the gamut from an expanded model range to powertrain enhancements.

New this year was a 7.3-liter direct injection turbocharged diesel engine option, which replaced the normally aspirated version. In addition, a luxurious Eddie Bauer top-of-the-line trim level came on board.

The Ford F-Series continued its role as the dominant player in the full-size pickup truck market, appealing to buyers who demanded functionality and durability. Key competitors were the Chevrolet C/K pickup, GMC Sierra and Dodge Ram.

The F-Series was available in three cabs (Regular, Supercab and Crew Cab) and five load-carrying series (F-150, 250, 250 HD, 350 and F-Super Duty). The cargo bed was available in a narrow style (Flareside) as well as a wide version (Styleside) and in two lengths. There were now four trim levels: Special, XL, XLT and the new upscale Eddie Bauer.

The base-level engine remained the 4.9-liter inline 6-cylinder. Optional engines were a 5.0-liter ohv V8, a 5.8-liter ohv V8, a 7.5-liter ohv V8 and the new 7.3-liter turbo-diesel V8. A 5-speed manual transmission was standard. There were two optional automatics: a 3-speed and a 4-speed. Four-wheel-drive versions of F150 models had shift-on-the-fly capability. The Lightning high-performance model received a new split bench seat.

1997[edit | edit source]

The tenth generation Ford F-Series was introduced for this model year. Unfortunately, trucks during this generation were ranked the 2nd Worst Performing Vehicle ever.

Pricing was announced on November 30, 1995, and the first F-150 trucks went on sale on January 25, 1996.
