Now that Ford has decided that Lincoln doesn't really need a truck after all, its up to the F-150 to carry the torch as both the everyman's work truck and a luxury toy hauler for the wealthy.

The company recently highlighted some of the reasons to buy a new F-150, including great residual value, powerful towing capacity, lots of award from all sorts of people and, right at the end, the detail that the whole range gets an eight percent fuel mileage increase. Models with the 5.4-liter V-8 engine get 12 percent. The new

The American buying public may have a very short attention span. Could it be that memories of the record high gas prices of a few months back have already faded away into oblivion? The answer is a definite maybe, as full-size pickups and SUV sales have rebounded a bit from their historic lows, but are still nowhere near where they were a year or two ago.
