Classic F150 Experience — Enjoyable to drive to work, on the farm and on the highway. Extended cab provides good carbo capacity, along with 6.5 foot truck bed/liner. 4WD and Grappler tires won't disappoint. Rugged truck design with comfortable cabin seating and entertainment system. The best of both worlds.

Americas Best Selling Truck For A Reason — if youre looking to get a truck, you cant go wrong with a ford f150. i use it for work(plumber for 8 yrs) i load and beat it and keeps on going. i drive it roughly 1200 miles monthly. road bumps and dips? what bumps and dips??? easily pulls a small trailer with all my rooter machines...at the end of the day, it still serves as my going out truck and looks good enough to roll up at the club in. strong acceleration, good transmission, i have a bed cover on mine keeps all my tools safe. ive owned it for 2 yrs, got it with 140xxx. nearing the 200000 havent had any problems yet. i got lucky

My Love — I love my truck. Great towing capabilities and handles wonderfully. The V8 engine has plenty of get up and go. the gas mileage is 16-19 mpg. Wish it was a little better with the MPGs. Hope to sell my baby and get a more fuel efficient vehicle.

Fleetside F150 4wd Fx4 With Towing Package — Split duty daily driver with my Miata. 15 MPG vs 24 MPG - I drive 100 miles per day. I love the truck because it's a truck and has everything i need. I occasionally pull a boat which is the main reason I've held on to it for 11 years. That and the fact that it always runs. Amazing reliability! I have 180,000 miles on this truck and am the original owner.

Pros

I love my truck , I moved to cape cod and do not drive it much, but when I have to go to boston to see my children the fuel is to much for me because I am not working anymore.

Cons

Fuel economy is not what this truck is about, but if you need a dependable truck it would be great For me I am retired and can not afford to do the traveling I would like to do in retirement.

Big Blue Orca — I just loved my truck, but I am retired and would like to take some long road trips. I bought this truck three years ago from a friend who owns a repair shop and sells a good car or truck on occasion .

Pros

I love the jet black color. It drives smooth and it has the little rim on the windows that keeps the rain out.

Cons

Hitch is rusted a bit and the check engine light is on. I had it checked but they can't find anything wrong.

It's A Great Little Truck — I didn't have this truck long. It was for my son but he lost his job. It hasn't been driven much since we bought it in January. Overall I'd say it's a great little truck with new brakes and new tires.

Ford Tough — This has been a great vehicle. Over 200k to date and no mechanical break downs other than changing an alternator, because someone crossed the jumper cables while jumping another vehicle. We have had great luck with all of our Ford trucks, we have another one with right at 400k on it and my son still drives it everyday.
