US:Ford's base F-150 to get V6, stick options in November

Ford's base F-150 to get V6, stick options in November

AMY WILSON | Automotive News

DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co. is adding a V6 and a manual transmission to its redesigned F-150 line for the 2005 model year.

The new base model is aimed primarily at corporate fleets and buyers who want an inexpensive work truck.

During the past year Ford sold only V8 versions of its redesigned pickup. But for 2005, redesigned F-150 models range from the V6 at the low end to a new King Ranch model at the top end.

When 2005 models go on sale in September, base prices, including destination, so far range from $20,550 for a V-6 automatic to $39,780 for a four-wheel-drive King Ranch. The V6 with manual transmission has not been priced.

"Now we've got the full lineup in the new sheet metal," said Doug Scott, Ford Division truck marketing manager. "That will be a significant add."

Ford never dropped the V6 entirely from its full-sized pickup line. It sold an old body style - the F-150 Heritage model - with a V6 during the 2004 model year. Ford stopped making the Heritage model for U.S. sale this summer.

The 4.2-liter, 202-hp V6 in the 2005 F-150 is carried over from the previous-generation model. In the 2003 model year, when Ford last had a full line of F-150s in a uniform body style, 25 percent sold with V6 engines. Ford expects that to drop to 10 percent for the 2005 model, Scott said.

Ford will offer the V6 only in a rear-drive, regular cab configuration.

Production of 2005 F-150s with manual transmissions begins in November. Ford will announce the price of that model close to its sale date.
