Ford Lightning 1996 differs much more soft and expressive forms. The appearance of the car is unique. It combines almost Spartan simplicity, hidden power and heavy elegance. Particularly impressive is the huge size of the front of the pickup truck. From a technical point of view, everything is very simple, durable and reliable.
The basis of the design is a powerful steel frame. To her are attached a body and, on rubber cushions, a cabin. The leading rear axle is a continuous beam on springs, to which there is a long pipe of a cardan shaft with a diameter of one hundred millimeters. Interesting front suspension – on single prefabricated diagonal levers. And cast cross-section, with the size and shape of the section resembling a railway rail, are of different lengths and are crossed among themselves. This design, for all simplicity, allows you to place long enough levers. They ensure that when the suspension is operating, the minimum deviation of the wheels from the vertical, and hence from the rated track and, as a result, better stability.
Cabin of Ford Lightning 1996 is very spacious. A wide three-seater sofa can be moved back and forth. However, this is the only “fit” for the driver – there are no other adjustments. Landing behind the wheel is almost vertical. On the right is an impressive lever of a five-speed manual gearbox. There are models equipped with a four-speed automatic. Brakes: with the amplifier, front – disk ventilated, rear – drum.
On the instrument panel – speedometer, voltmeter and oil pressure indicators, coolant temperature and fuel level. The latter can be switched to either of the two fuel tanks. At the same time, the gasoline is also switched to the engine. In the hub of the steering wheel, an airbag is hidden, the stalk switch is one to the left. On it the management of a distant light, indexes of turn, the cleaner and a washer of a windscreen is taken out.
In a word, it is not a passenger car, but passengers are not denied in comfort and safety.
We are really happy to present you Ford Lightning 1996.
