1990 Ford F-150 Overview

The 1990 Ford F-150 continued to dominate the U.S. truck market. Reliability and versatility were the key selling points for this powerhouse pickup; the variety of trims and configurations available to buyers also made it a popular choice for farm, ranch, and job-site duty. Available trims included the XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat, and cab configurations included standard 2-door and 4-door options, as well as the extended-cab "supercab."

The 1990 Ford F-150 came off the line with a choice of engines, including a 4.9-liter straight-six, a 5.0-liter Windsor V8, and a 180-horsepower, 7.3-liter International Harvester diesel, all with fuel injection. Four-wheel drive options made this model a favorite of the off-road set. The '90 Ford F-150 also caught on in a big way with tuners and project lovers looking for a rugged muscle truck with a long lifespan. You'll see plenty of these solid pickups on and off the road today.
