1998 Ford F-150 Overview

Once again, the 1998 Ford F-150 topped the U.S. truck market in sales. The perennial favorite continued to depend on its ruggedness, reliability, and variety of choices for buyers. Trims available were the XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat; short-bed and long-bed versions, as well as stepside and styleside choices, were offered for each incarnation of the '98 Ford F-150.

Inside the 1998 Ford F-150, the watchword was "comfort." Cab choices included 2-door and 3-door standard and extended cabs, and CD systems were a popular option. Under the hood, the accent was on power; the 98 Ford F-150 offered buyers a choice among a 4.6 liter Essex V-6, a 4.6 liter Triton V8, and a 5.4 liter Triton V-8 topping out at 235 horsepower. Optional four-wheel drive with automatic locking hubs made this tough pickup a favorite with off-road adventurers.
