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

Year-to-year changesEdit

1991Edit

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.

1992Edit

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

1995Edit

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.

1997Edit

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.
