Twelfth Generation Ford F-150 Pickup Trucks

Ford revealed the next generation 2009 F-150 design at the North American International Auto Show in January, 2008. Production of the series began in October 2008 at Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant.[16] The truck features a larger and more flexible interior, an updated three-bar grille, and additional choices of cab styles and trim levels. The chassis includes a lighter-weight, high strength steel for better fuel economy and safety and improved payload and towing capacity. Three engines are initially offered with the 2009 redesign: a revised 5.4 L 3-valve Triton V8 that is E85 capable with a new output rating of 320 hp (240 kW) and 395 lbft (536 Nm) of torque, a 292 hp (218 kW) 4.6 L 3-valve V8, and a 248 hp (185 kW) 4.6 L 2-valve V8. The 3-valve 5.4 and 4.6 liter V8s are mated to Ford's new 6R80E 6-speed automatic transmission while the 4R75E 4-speed automatic transmission used previously is carried over for the 2-valve 4.6 L V8. The 4.2 L OHV V6 engine, which was previously available, has been dropped due to the closure of the Essex engine plant where it was produced. Additional engine offerings under development include a new 4.4 L diesel V8 with a projected 330 hp (250 kW) and 400 lbft (540 Nm) of torque and an Ecoboost gas turbocharged direct injection 3.5 L DOHC V6.[17] The 4.4L diesel has been put on hold.

A top-of-the-line Platinum edition F-150 replaced the Lincoln Mark LT truck.[18] However, this trim line is still sold as the Lincoln Mark LT in Mexico. 2009 Ford F-150 XLT extended cab

The 2009 Ford F150 features front-seat side impact airbags and Ford's Safety Canopy System for the first and second rows as Head protection in the event of a side impact. It will also feature Ford's exclusive ADVANCETRAC RSC (Roll Stability Control)--an Electronic Stability control and anti-rollover safety feature also available in other Ford vehicles, from the Fusion to the Expedition.

Worsening economic situation in US and the declining sales of F-150s prompted Ford to delay the introduction of the new F-150 by two months.[19]

Beginning in 2009, manual transmissions will no longer be available in the F-150 and will only be equipped with automatics. Manual transmissions will continue to be available in the F-250/F-350 Super duty pickups.
