176" Wheel Base
60" cab to axle
9.5ft frame length
Power windows, locks, mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, tilt steering
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.

Autonomous cars may still be in their infancy, but more and more big names in the auto industry are diving in head first. Nissan is already making strides with a semi-autonomous Leaf EV and General Motors is planning to offer semi-autonomous tech by 2020. And then there's Google, doing its thing with a fleet of Toyota Prius. Now, Ford is showing off its latest automated effort, a driverless Fusion Hybrid.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 19:00:00 EST
Partnering with the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and State Farm Insurance, the project is part of Ford's Blueprint for Mobility, the company's plan for transportation beyond 2025. "The Ford Fusion Hybrid automated vehicle represents a vital step toward our vision for the future of mobility," Chairman Bill Ford said. "We see a future of connected cars that communicate with each other and the world around them to make driving safer, ease traffic congestion and sustain the environment."
The automated Fusion features four LiDAR infrared sensors that scan the road 2.5 million times every second, using a principle similar to the echolocation used by dolphins or bats. Using the infrared light emitted by the LiDAR, the car can draw a picture of everything within 200 feet to create a map of its surroundings. According to Ford, the sensors are able to tell the difference between a paper bag and a small animal from a football field away.
Ford can't seem to build F-150 SVT Raptors fast enough. The off-road-ready trucks have been one of the Blue Oval's most reliable sellers, with record sales in eight of the last 10 months and a 14-percent jump in 2013. That's impressive enough, considering that the least expensive Raptor starts at $44,000. Factor in the modded F-150's fuel economy (it's rated at 11 miles per gallon in the city and 16 on the highway) and a national average gas price, as of this writing, of $3.55 per gallon, and its success is as unlikely as Ford's home team, the Detroit Lions, winning the Super Bowl this year (sorry, Lions fans, we're just quoting the experts in Vegas...).

Yet for some reason, Raptors spend an average of just 15 days on dealer lots before being snapped up, which is a quarter of the 60-day industry average. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Doug Scott, it's capability that keeps the Raptor selling strong. "What's helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers. Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers' evolving needs."
To address the strong demand for Raptors, Ford will bump production from three trucks per hour to five. Not much, we agree. But building an extra 48 trucks per day, at most, seems like a prudent way of addressing demand without oversaturating what is ultimately a niche market. Check out the press release below for more.
The attractive new 2013 Ford Fusion has done wonders for the brand in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment - the vehicle is up nearly 22 percent compared to last year. But that sales momentum may soon hold steady due to low inventory levels of the new Fusion across the United States.
According to a report in The Detroit News, citing automotive data and Ward's Auto, Ford currently has a 39-day supply of the Fusion. That might sound fine, but a normally healthy average is about a 60-day supply. If Ford were to stop production on the Fusion today, there would only be enough vehicles available to get through another five weeks of sales, according to the News.
Currently, Ford produces the Fusion at its three-shift assembly plant in Hermosillo, Mexico, and will add production at its facility in Flat Rock, MI later this year. A Ford spokesperson told The Detroit News that when Flat Rock production comes online, the automaker will need to rush new stock out to the regions with the most demand for the Fusion. Ford has doubled its coastal retail market share, with huge amounts of growth in areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, the News reports.
