Amazing Truck. Best You Can Have! by Alisha
 — I love my truck. The person before us put a cattle guard on it, tail light covers, and a glass pack. It's a small 4.6L V8 but it works I guess. :P The gas mileage REALLY sucks. I have to put gas in it... Read More

1997 Ford F-150

"Motor Trend" magazine's "Truck of the Year" pick, the 1997 Ford F-150 topped the US market in sales for the second straight year.  The "Eddie Bauer" trimline was dropped, with the Lariat trim coming back to join the Standard, XL, and XLT.  

The 97 Ford F150 had a sleek new look to go with its laurels.  Curvy, aerodynamic design and newly plush styling for the interiors made the popular pickup attractive to buyers.  A look under the hood, though, showed that the 1997 Ford F150 was still pushing plenty of power; Ford introduced the modular single overhead cam in this model year, and the choice of engines was between a 4.2 liter Essex V-6, 4.6 liter Triton V8, and a 5.4 liter Triton V8 putting out a hefty 235 horsepower.

The 97 Ford F-150 also offered a range of configurations: long-bed and short-bed models were on offer, as well as a selection of cab setups including extended-cab supercab, standard 2-door and 4-door.  Four-wheel drive made this powerhouse pickup a favorite with the off-road set, as well as a rugged workhorse with the durability to handle duty on jobsite, farm, and ranch.
