Overview
2005 Ford F-150

Between 2004 and 2005, there were only a few minor changes in the F-150. The first one of note is the addition of an option package called the Work Truck Group. A new trim package, the uber-luxurious and tough King Ranch Edition is another change from 2004. Lastly, to help improve the line's fuel economy numbers, a 4.2-liter V6 was added. To improve the transfer of low-end torque, Ford engineers gave the 2005 F-150 a five-speed manual transmission option.
