UPDATE: Ford has responded to our inquiries for curb weights on all models and released figures for all models. You can see a chart in the gallery and our article below has been updated accordingly. To learn more about the all-new 2015 F-150 and get an early read on its potential hero-or-zero status, we flew to the heart of full-size pickup truck country, San Antonio, TX, to spend a day driving, towing and playing in the mud with an assortment of Ford's innovative new trucks. First, a caveat – while we feel we have a reasonably good handle on the new F-150 after attending this... Read More

We're betting Ford wants to get the new 2009 F-150 to dealer lots as soon as possible. With increased competition from the new Chevy Silverado and the Toyota Tundra stealing market share, the F-150's title as the best-selling vehicle in the world, a mantle it has worn for decades, is under serious threat this year. The revised 2009 F-150, however, is meant ...
PickupTruck.com is now reporting that the two extra doors in the bed of this F-150 mule are not destined for the 2009 model, but rather will be an option available as soon as this spring to commercial customers. As a few of our commenters noted in yesterday's post, the option is called the "Tough Box" and was previewed at the Ford's Claycomo, Missouri ...
There's been some behind-the-scenes speculation as to whether or not these spy photos of a six-door Ford F-150 mule are the real thing showing a recent prototype or old shots of a truck that time forgot, but they've just been verified as the real deal, having been shot as recently as last Tuesday. The very long F-150 features two regular doors, two extended ...
The spy photogs at KGP Photography report that there are likely up to two dozen Ford F-150 development mules out on the roads around Detroit as the Blue Oval attempts to tweak its best seller to better meet the new competition from General Motors and Toyota head on. Many of the mules show little or no exterior design changes, but they did catch this mule ...
If you're taking home a camouflaged new Ford F-350, it's probably best to park it head-in if you wish to avoid prying eyes. Luckily for us, reader Adam Minter happened upon this blue example in his neighborhood. The leopard spots by Krylon aren't enough to hide the fact that the front end look is exactly the same as the the one seen in the Super Duty spy ...
Last week we saw a picture of a heavily-camouflaged 2008 Ford Super Duty; this week brings additional shots of vehicles in more revealing livery - something that looks more like Mossy Oak. The sharp eye of Chris Doane found three examples - a single-rear-wheel truck, a dually, and a medium-duty flatbed - undergoing hot-weather testing in the ...
The pending replacement of Chevrolet's full-size pickup for 2007 has been well-documented with a few million grainy spy shots, but this is the first time we can recall seeing the new-for-2008 Silverado HD out and about. And while most of the KGP Photography captured mule is done up in industry-standard Hefty Bag school of camouflage, it's possible to ...
