6.8 Liter Triton V10 Gasoline with Automatic transmission
**132k actual miles shown but unable to guarantee**
This vehicle was purchased from corporate fleet group. A very solid truck. Cab is very tight - shows no sign of off-road abuse. Engine starts easy - runs smooth - no smoke. Transmission shifts out smoothly - powertrain throughout is quiet & well meshed. Steering is tight - truck drives true down the road. Would be a great candidate for natural gas or propane conversion. This truck is capable of being fitted with a standard size 9.5 ft cab and chassis flat bed. If you are interested in one we can give you a price on one of ours and have it installed prior to shipment.
This truck's actual mileage is 132,526 but it will have to be sold as true mileage unknown.
When it was brought in to auction, it had a fuse blown that prevented mileage odometer from displaying in dash and so it was represented as TMU. The vehicle history report will reflect that.
We replaced the fuse and everything shows as should.
Even though the truck's mileage has continued to be logged by vehicle's ECM module, and the vehicle would have to have the computer replaced in order to tamper with actual mileage shown; we will have to represent this vehicle as being sold with actual mileage as unknown. Check out the vehicle history report on this vehicle - it will solidify mileage accuracy.
All in all this is a great truck. Please call 479.267.1860 or email me with any questions you may have. This truck is for sale locally, therefore I reserve the right to end auction early due to an on the spot purchase. Thank you.

Last month Ford's Jim Farley made waves at the CES when it was reported he told show attendees, "We have GPS in your car, so we know what you're doing. By the way, we don't supply that data to anyone." Farley and Ford later partially retracted and clarified that statement.

Spurred by a desire for further transparency on data collection policies, Ford representatives answered questions from Congress, specifically Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), about driver privacy.
The Detroit News reports that Ford told Congress it does collect some vehicle location data in an effort to "troubleshoot and improve our products" on behalf of the driver. Ford went on to say that it only collects limited data after receiving permission from owners.
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
The Ford Mustang that we all know and love made major waves in the auto industry way back in 1964 by offering style and reasonable pricing with optional V8 power. Its long hood and short rear deck, combined with a low-slung and sporty cockpit, made a lasting impression in the minds of consumers and car designers alike, and its basic shape has so endured the test of time that it's still in use today.
This being the case, you may be interested to know that the first Mustang of 1964.5 wasn't actually the first Mustang at all, being preceded by a concept car that made its public debut in 1962. This concept was nothing like the car that would eventually make it into production, with a radical wedge shape and a small V4 engine sitting behind the car's two occupants, driving the rear wheels. In other words, the conceptual Mustang was pretty much the complete opposite of the production Mustang besides the name.
Ford has kindly decided go through its massive archive to bring the original Mustang concept back into the public eye. The company goes so far as to pose this question to fans of the pony car: "Should we borrow a few of these style elements for the next iteration of the Mustang?"
