Introduced in early 1996 as a 1997 model, the F-150 was a completely new vehicle in comparison from its predecessor. The 1997 F-150 was developed with a radically streamlined body. Dispensing Twin I-Beam suspension for fully independent front suspension, the all-new chassis shared only the transmissions with the previous generation. In a major change, the long-running 4.9L inline-6 was replaced by a V6 engine as standard. The 4.6L Modular V8 shared with the Panther cars was optional (with a 5.4L version added in mid-1997); originally developed for use in the F-Series, the Modular/Triton V8 was the first overhead-cam engine ever fitted to a full-size pickup truck.
To improve rear-seat access for SuperCab models, a rear-hinged (curb-side) door was added to all versions. Following its popularity, the SuperCab gained a fourth door for 1999. In 2001, the F-150 became the first pickup truck in its size segment to become available with four full-size doors. Sharing the length of a standard-bed SuperCab, the F-150 SuperCrew was produced with a slightly shortened bed.
First owner was David Beckham, Captain of England, Certificate of Authenticity AND his V5 present. 3 owners since.
Truck Trend tests revealed the 2002 Harley-Davidson model sprinted from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, a full 3.1 seconds faster than an F-150 FX4 four-wheel-drive model we tested that year, but also a second slower than the Lightning model. The 2002 Harley-Davidson truck completed the quarter mile in 14.6 seconds at 94.7 mph and came to a halt from 60 mph in 126 feet.
