1994 Ford F-150 XLT (5.0 v.s. 7.3) Start up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review

  • by

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube’s largest collection of automotive variety! In today’s video, we’ll take an up close and personal, in depth look at the 1994 Ford F-150 XLT. While I wouldn’t consider the F-150 to be rare, this particular example was in one of the most unique color schemes for the time, quite retro and flavorful. This one also has just under 70,000 miles and is in as close to mint condition as you will find for one of these generations F-150s, one of my personal favorite generations. While this specific F-150 in the video comes with the 5.0L V8, I also insert clips of a 1995 F-250 with the optional 7.3L turbo diesel for comparisons since I’ve not featured a 7.3L of this gen before (to my knowledge that is). During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Hey everyone how’s it going today let’s take a detailed in-depth look at this very unique and very low my legs amputated the main philosophy of my tale is trying to find mint condition to order vehicles to give reviews of since you can’t find them pretty much anywhere on the internet and it gives you a fantastic look at a vehicle that pretty much looks as if it was

New back in 1994 plus fantastic unique color scheme you don’t hardly see anymore this is going to be a full and in-depth review of the f-150 we’ll start it up shut the engine get an exhaust clip and go over the performance data and shave bunch of the features on the interior as well as exterior and throughout the video insert a couple of comparison clips between

This 1995 model same generation except this one has the 7.3 liter turbo diesel power stroke at and what ton of people swear by the 7.3 versus the 6 liter that came out after that so failure is only suiting fit since they were of the same generation to go ahead and insert a comparison clip of them and today i’m at all city auto sales an indian trail north carolina

And so without further ado let’s go and start it up let it run definitely my favorite color scheme on these older f-150s this light teal and white combo with a plush light gray cloth interior definitely unique to say the least the burgundy interior and the diesel move a bucket seat type fashion only 69 thousand original miles beautiful exhaust note now let’s

Give a start-up of the diesel gotta love the side of that classic diesel fully leather wrap steering wheel nice and thick and extremely smooth power assisted steering also comes in with an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission with low gear selection and overdrive selected on the stalk here for these vehicles you can also get a 5-speed manual

Transmission as an option as you can see here all the way over and down for overs and we’re going to cut on the headlamps full power windows panels go check out the exterior shall we the ford f-150 has always been pretty much the number one selling truck in america for years and years this particular generation is one of my favorite i just love the blend between

The kind of old traditional istic body styling and this one where it kinda had a little bit of a refresh before the complete redesign 1997 it’s pretty much straight simple clean and straightforward just as an american pickup should be this was just an unreal clean example of an f-150 that you just cannot find anymore so i’ve jumped at the opportunity to be able

To make this video improvements over the years we’re pretty modest including the cfc-free air conditioning system increased door safety beams built into the side panels as well as the integration of like an upper third brake light in the back as well as standard driver side airbags whereas the 250 models as well as other heavy-duty trucks from chevrolet and gmc

And the like those requirements didn’t apply to those trucks back then as you can see this one does have the optional dual gas tank setup for increased range of the vehicle as well as you saw a little clip earlier there’s custom street meat body cladding going across the side full tonneau cover over the rear blends nicely with the vehicle the couple slots in the

Middle and tapers off with the bag kinda like we will integrate its spoiler overall length is 197 point one inches with the height of 70 point 8 inches and an overall width of 79 inches total curb weight was around three thousand eight hundred and ninety-six pound and we’re going to pop the hood let’s take a look generation f 150 ten with a five liter electronically

Fuel-injected pa – val four-cylinder produced around 205 horsepower at 4000 rpm and 275 foot-pounds of torque at 3000 rpm here the sixty time is around ten point five seconds for the quarter-mile time of 17.7 seconds at 76 miles now and for the 32 gallon fuel tank running on regular unleaded gas achieves an epa-estimated miles per gallon rating up around 13 city

16 highway in 1995 f250 models saw the introduction of a new 7.3 liter direct injection turbo diesel v8 built by international and produced around 235 horsepower and 425 foot-pounds of torque the 5-speed manual transmission was standard with the automatic 4-speed available it also had a factory towing specification limit of around 5,000 pounds but many people

Familiar with these trucks of the diesel equipped models know that they can usually tolerate a good bit more than just 5,000 pounds went ahead shut it off this portion is drown out the beeping the interior is quite plush for a pickup truck nice plush bench seat pad of trim going across the door panel here give your lower storage down below extra storage up top

The passenger side of the bench seat it’s a glove box all the original books that’s something i always enjoy to see when you find a vehicle has been taken care of so well like i said this is probably definitely one of my favorite generations at the f-150 it’s modern yet still retains some of that classic for traditional mystic styling the f-150 s always has just
