General

Ford is well known for its light frame construction and Now as expected thye’ve released much stronger and lighter-weight frame in Ford F-150 XLT 4×4. Do I like this style? Let’s see. The front portion of the truck’s frame is a tubular design, which looks more like dakar race truck than in an everyday pickup.

Its large cubic forms looks amazingly massive reminding somethink kind of light tank. Neither the impressive appearance nor the lighter steel construction means anything, though, until you put it to the test.

The F-150’s rear has the standard leaf-spring solid axle, which gives the better ride once some weight is added to the rear. In this case, the leaf springs are over 6 inches extended forward to provide additional front-to-rear support and control they are longer also. This provides extra stability in towing situations and helped improve the truck’s handling on the route.

The Engine

All I know about the available engines is only 5.4-liter V-8. While there was adequate power from the updated three-valve 5.4-liter V-8( fuel economy) Ford seemed to suffer. Power ratings are higher than last year’s engine, which made 300 horsepower and 365 pounds-feet of torque, and it’s added two more cogs to its gearbox, but we only averaged 15 mpg in combined city and highway driving. It’s a good result for a 5.4 litre engine. Honda has got the same combustion with only 3liter engine.
