About “Rado”

Started off looking for a Colorado in the city I live in, Sault ste marie ontario, but just couldnt find the right one or the right price!. So I started to browse the internet, searching through Autotrader and Kijiji. Ended up finding this beauty of a mid size truck in Timmins! not to long of a drive and I loving road trips anyway, went as soon as I could to pick it up! This truck has been amazing so far, it has been taken off roading many times and even taken out many full size trucks ;)

About “Green Monster”

This Truck was willed to me by my Father when he passed away back in April of this year. (2011) He drove it very little with very little mileage 12,300. His last 2 years he rarely got in it. It took me about 3 days to bring the luster back to what it once was, after sitting in the weather. It was my Dad's favorite Truck and I intend of keeping it for a long time and keeping it clean and shiny for him..









The F-150 is available in six distinct trim levels: XL, STX, XLT, FX2/FX4, Lariat, and King Ranch. Each boasts its own interior style, engine, suspension and cab configuration. Engines include a 4.2-liter V6, a 4.6-liter V8, and a 5.4-liter V8. The V6 offers a choice of four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. Both V8s come with four-speed automatic transmissions, although the 5.4 comes with a heavy-duty unit. The flexible fuel version of the 5.4-liter V8 can run on E85 ethanol. Rated at 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, it delivers quick acceleration. The F-150's 5.4-liter V8 is part of Ford's Triton engine series, and features a single overhead camshaft per cylinder bank, three valves per cylinder, and variable valve timing. A 5.4-liter F-150 with 2WD rated 15/19 mpg City/Highway. The high-capacity 4R75E four-speed automatic transmission that comes with the 5.4-liter is smooth and responsive, downshifting quickly and crisply when you punch it, and shifting almost seamlessly when cruising.

Ford offers a flexible-fuel package for the 5.4-liter at no extra cost to the consumer. Flex-Fuel Vehicles (FFVs) can operate on gasoline or ethanol blends up to E85; that is, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.
The Supercab offers 32.7 inches of Leg room in it's back seat. Properly equipped, a Ford F-150 can tow 10,500 pounds or haul more than 3,050 pounds in the bed.

For 2007, a tire-pressure monitoring system now comes standard, a 5.4-liter E85 flexible fuel V8 is available, and power for the 4.6-liter V8 is increased.
