1985 Ford F-150

The 1985 Ford F-150 was the first model in this line  to offer fuel-injection technology. The 85 Ford F150 came off the line with a choice between a fuel-injected 5.0 liter Windsor V8 engine and the carburetor version of the Windsor V-8, as well as the diesel and straight-six choices.

"Have it your way" was the name of the game for the 85 Ford F-150.  Buyers could choose their engines, their cab configurations (extended cab supercab was the roomiest of the 4-door setups, with 2-door cabs continuing in popularity), and their options packages.  XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat were the trims available.

The 1985 Ford F150 is a powerhouse pickup with the ruggedness and durability valued on farm, ranch, and worksite.  You'll find plenty of these seemingly-immortal workhorses out there today, going off-road or all dolled up by the tuner set.
