The F-150 was introduced in 1975 as another model in the Ford’s enormously successful line of full-size pickup trucks and its initial role was to circumvent emission restrictions. The F-150 won numerous Truck of the Year and Best Pickup Truck awards given by Motor trend and Car and Driver magazines, respectively.
It can be purchased in several different cab designs in both 2-door and 4-door configurations.
The eighth generation of Ford F-150 is by far the most popular one, especially the 2006 model year. The engine choices include the entry level 4.0-liter V6, two V8 engines and a flex-fuel version of the larger V8 engine.
Ford F-150 owners praise it for its durability, ruggedness, extraordinary towing capacities, classy interior and an immensely long list of options.
The F-150 comes in numerous trim levels and special editions such as the SVT Lightning which is more of a full-blown muscle car than a pickup truck or the Raptor which handles all off-road adventures like nobody’s business.
The most successful and sought after trim level is the XLT and owners of this highly successful pickup truck usually prefer it in white, black or red. Most pre-owned examples of the F-150 are characterized by the common price range between $2,000 and $13,000 at online auto auction.
Some may point out that it is slightly heavier than its competitors, so it is not actually the best in class in terms of fuel efficiency. The 2006 F-150 has been involved in several minor recalls concerning its lighting and communication systems. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a “good” overall rating for both frontal and side impact crash tests. The F-150 was also given the Top Safety Pick award by the IIHS.
Ford Focus is a compact car introduced in 1999 as a very strong and innovative rival to the class-topping Volkswagen Golf. It is noted for its new and radical design as a part of the Ford’s New Edge styling principles.
It was the first car in its class to feature the multi-link rear suspension, so the new trend was soon followed by its main competitors, including Mazda 3, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Nissan Versa.
The first generation of Focus included the hatchback, the sedan and the station wagon, while the second generation saw the introduction of a coupe version.
Focus has won numerous Car of the Year awards all around the world and it has been included on Car and Driver’s Top Ten List for five consecutive years. Ford Focus is considered to be the best handling car in its class, providing a delicate balance of passenger comfort and driving pleasure. It has the biggest interior in class, is an excellent value for money and is exceptionally fuel efficient in most trim levels.
The first generation of Focus included four different trim levels along with the sporty SVT line. The most popular trim level is SE. A vast array of different engines and transmissions was initially available, although the second generation saw the narrowing down of engine choices to just one 2.0 straight-four. The FCV is a hydrogen powered version and it is essentially a zero emissions vehicle.
The owners of the first generation Focus equipped with a 2.0L SPI engine commonly complained about a dropped valve seat. The interior quality on early models is often listed as an issue as well. Focus received an overall “good” rating in the frontal offset crash tests and an overall “acceptable” rating in the side impact tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It can be purchased for $2,000-$8,000 from online auto auctions and it will usually be sold much faster if it came in silver, red or black.
