Marisol Mac ford, 2017-08-13 01:52:33. First, what made Ford call these pickups F-150? The earliest use of the F-series name dates back to the 1948 Ford truck, with the half ton model named the F-1. Ford renamed that to F-100 in 1953, but the F-150 classification did not come about until 1976, why? This was a model that debuted to evade emissions requirements, as it was essentially a heavy half pickup rated at just over 6,000 pounds gross weight, which was the specification by the EPA at the time. This model required catalytic converters and subsequently unleaded gasoline. International Harvester also did this for 1975 in its final year of pickup production, making all half-ton 100 models 150s, to avoid installing catalytic converters. The final year of the F-100 was 1983, by which time leaded vs. unleaded was a moot point. The 100 or 150 indicated the nominal axle loading 100 = 1000 lbs, 1/2 ton, 150 = 1500 lbs 3/4 Ton. It had nothing to do with environmental requirements. It may be that the gross weight of the truck was increased in response to the 6000 lb marker, but the F-150s had been made for some time.

Originally dubbed the Hurricane, the name was changed to the Boss after Hurricane Katrina devastated much of the Louisiana and Mississippi coast line in August 2005.

Today, only two plants build all F-150s globally the Kansas City Assembly Plant in suburban Claycomo, Missouri, and the Dearborn Truck Plant near Dearborn, Michigan. Ford went from 16 production plants nationwide and now there are only two. I personally visited the Detroit truck plant, which my wife arranged for me as a birthday gift one year. I was in awe and I highly recommend you go there if you are a Ford truck lover like me, or just to experience the start-to-finish production of a pickup truck.

The space problem isn't quite as prominent if you have a Ford Expedition or Ford Ranger, however it's still a good idea to blend the subwoofer enclosures in with the SUV. Not only does it look nice and thwart the potential theft of your system, but it keeps your amp and subwoofer safe and sounding their best.

Fans of the modular V8 will recognize the deep skirt block with cross bolted main caps, overhead camshaft arrangement and crankshaft driven oil pump. The bore centerline is the single biggest difference between the Boss and the modular V8. The Boss bore center line will be 4.53 in (115 mm) wider the older V8. In order to attain the 379 cubic inches of displacement, the 6.2 Liter Boss utilizes a 4.015 inch (102 mm) bore diameter and a 3.74 (95 mm) stroke. The intake valve is reportedly 2.10 inches and puts the exhaust valve at 1.65 inches. The Boss will also have single overhead camshafts, two valves per cylinder, and two spark plugs per cylinder. The fuel economy will be increased and emissions reduced utilizing cylinder deactivation.
