Your Ford F150 With A Magellan GPS Navigation System

The 2006 Ford F-150 is a straight-shooting pickup that’s as versatile as it is attractive-and the reasons why the F-Series has been the best-selling pickup in America for an amazing 28 years.

Curb appeal has taken a step up thanks to available 20-inch wheels and a new Chrome Package with available five-inch chromed tubular running boards and 18-inch chromed aluminum wheels. Inside, Sirius Satellite Radio is available and includes a six-month trial subscription, and safety is also enhanced with available Traction Assist on 4×2 V-8 models. Plus, the F-150 is the only pickup in its class to earn a NHTSA 5-star driver and right-front-passenger frontal crash rating, as well as a “Best Pick” recommendation from the IIHS for its frontal offset crash performance.

The F-150 XLT Super Crew is available with a choice of 4.6-liter or 5.4-liter V-8 engines. We’ll put our money on the cowboy-tough 5.4-liter V-8. Start up this unit and you’ll find out real fast what makes it a favorite of folks with a variety of things to do. First, the thing hauls. It’s a SOHC V-8 with electronic fuel injection feeding power to a four-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission, with available electronic shift-on-the-fly part-time four-wheel drive, and limited-slip rear differential.

One unexpectedly nice thing about the F-150 pickup is how well it rides. Granted, the terms “truck” and “comfort” are not exactly kissing cousins, but the fact is that the Super Crew’s advanced suspension with cast-aluminum control arms in front and outboard mounted rear shocks, both class-exclusives, deliver great ride and handling. No wonder the F-150 won just about every magazine award since it was introduced.

The F-150 interior is built to suit, with two rows of seating for six passengers (five passengers if you order front captain’s chairs). The Super Crew has Big Sky-like spaciousness, including 40.1 inches of front headroom, 41.3 inches of front legroom, and a whopping 65.8 inches of front shoulder room (with similar rear dimensions). This is one cab that will never be found lacking in comfort. Especially when you consider that the XLT trim level has such standard features as breathable premium cloth upholstery and fold-down center armrests. A six-way power driver’s seat is also available for added comfort.

Standard XLT convenience features include remote keyless entry system, power windows, mirrors and door locks, front and rear 12-volt power points, a compass and exterior temperature display, and even delayed accessory power. Some surprising options are also available, making the F-150 XLT Super Crew suitable for a far greater range of people-and yes, even city dwellers. These include power adjustable foot pedals (a plus for smaller drivers). There’s even a reverse sensing system, which is especially useful when backing up slowly if you choose to mount a camper shell on the truck. So is a very worthwhile deluxe mirror package that contains power heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, plus a neat electro chromic (auto-dimming) interior rearview mirror.

What is quite interesting is an easy install GPS navigation system for the Ford F150 by Magellan®, one of the world’s leading innovators of navigation and positioning solutions with operations worldwide. Magellan was the brand that introduced the first consumer handheld GPS solution in 1989, and it has maintained its place as a leading global GPS brand for consumers.
