The 1993 F-150 Flareside was a full-size pickup truck produced by the Ford Motor Company. Flareside trucks have smooth sides, rather than the bulging wheel wells found on step-side trucks.
Flareside F-150s were available with a "Standard" three-passenger body, an "Extended" style with small back seat and a "Crew Cab" style with a full back seat. Both short-bed and long-bed versions of the flareside model were available. A performance "Lightning" edition was also available as a flareside. The "Lightning" model was tuned to be more of a racing truck and less of a cargo hauler.
Two engines were offered in the 1993 F-150 Flaresides: a 4.9-liter, six-cylinder engine that produced 140 horsepower and a high-performance 5.8-liter, eight-cylinder engine that output 240 horsepower.
Flareside trucks were available as two- or four-wheel-drive vehicles. Three transmission options were available: a four-speed automatic, four-speed manual or a five-speed manual transmission.
Gas mileage for the F-150 Flareside varied because of the additional weight that had to be carried by larger versions of the truck. Typically, a Flareside F-150 got between 14 and 15 miles per gallon in the city and 18 to 20 mpg on the highway.
