2009 Ford F-150

The 2009 Ford F-150 became available in the fall of 2008, and is the 2009 North American Truck of the Year and the 2009 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.

The 2009 F-150 features a stronger frame, three V8 engine choices (a 4.6L 2-valve V8, a new 4.6L 3-valve V8 and a 5.4L 3-valve V8 that can run on E85) and an available 6-speed automatic transmission with a Tow/Haul Mode that comes standard with both 3-valve engines.

The F-150 features a flat loadfloor without the "hump" behind the seats, fuel economy of up to 21 miles per gallon, 4x2 or 4x4 drivelines, 3 cab styles, 3 box lengths and 2 box styles, and 7 trim levels (XL, XLT, STX, FX4, Lariat, King Ranch & Platinum).

Standard features include AdvanceTrac electronic stability control with Roll Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control, side-curtain airbags and a Standard Personal Safety System that controls the deployment force of the airbags based on the severity of the crash and other factors.

Options include a voice-activated navigation radio with Sony premium audio and Sirius satellite radio and TravelLink, an enhanced reverse camera system, a tailgate step, box side steps, bed extender and cargo management system, telescoping/folding trailer tow mirrors, integrated trailer brake controller, and heated and cooled 10-way power leather-trimmed front seats.

At the 2009 Portland International Auto Show, Ford displayed a cutaway version of the 2009 F-150 that displayed many of the truck's features.

This view shows the inside of the SuperCrew cab, with the flat loadfloor behind the front seats.

At the front the cutaway allowed a view of the front suspension.

The cutaway box allowed for a view of the frame and rear suspension, and a closer look at the optional box-side steps.

This rear view of the cutaway F-150 shows the optional tailgate step and bed extender.
