DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 2, 2006 – The Ford F-150 – the flagship American pickup truck – will
enter the 2007 model year with two new body styles, 600 pounds greater towing capability, the best warranty and
roadside assistance package of any full-size pickup truck and suggested retail prices that will be up to $1,400 lower, including destination charges.
By cab style, the average price reductions are $720 for Regular Cab models, $830 for SuperCabs and $949 for
SuperCrews. Prices including destination will now begin at $19,120 for the F-150 XL Regular Cab 4×2 and
range up to $39,565 for the F-150 Lariat King Ranch SuperCrew 4×4.
New models for 2007 include the Ford F-150 FX2 Sport, unveiled in April, which will begin at $29,470, and
the Harley-Davidson SuperCrew, which will be unveiled at the 66 th annual Sturgis Rally in Sturgis, SD – the
largest gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts in the world – which begins Aug. 7.
The F-150 FX2 Sport features a dark billet grille, clear headlamps with platinum bezels and a sporty, deep
front valance. The monochromatic paint scheme adds body color to exterior components such as the bumper fascias,
side mirror caps and door handles. Unique 18-inch wheels and a chrome exhaust tip complete the exterior package.
The interior features black captain’s chairs in cloth or leather, and a flow-through center console with a floor shifter.
“The Ford F-Series has been gaining market share this year and we are well on our way to our 30 th consecutive
year as the full-size truck leader, thanks to a philosophy of putting the customer’s needs first,” said John
Felice, Ford Brand Group Marketing Manager. “It’s a philosophy that has helped shape the Way Forward plan and
our drive to systematically improve the value and appeal of all Ford products through bold design, more
standard features, greater capability, straightforward pricing and superior warranty and roadside assistance coverage.”
Last week, Ford announced that the redesigned 2007 Ford Expedition would launch in September with suggested retail
prices an average of $4,300 lower than 2006 models, and a starting price of only $29,995, including destination.
On July 14, the company announced that it would offer the best warranty and roadside assistance package of any
full-line automaker by increasing its powertrain limited warranty and complimentary roadside assistance package on
all Ford and Mercury vehicles to 5 years or 60,000 miles – 66 percent longer than the powertrain warranties offered
on most General Motors and Chrysler Group products. On Lincoln products, the powertrain warranty and roadside
assistance package is even longer – up to 6 years or 70,000 miles.
In addition, the company has made side curtain air bags standard equipment on 14 additional Ford and Mercury nameplates for the 2007 model year.
