Well with more options than the base model that I currently have, you get a great truck overall out of the F150. I would say when it comes to the upkeep of the vehicle, the Ford cost more and the task are much more difficult for the owner to maintain when dealing with tune ups and other routine maintenance!

F150 Pickup — It's a great car, nothing to complain about! I like the build quality, it is also simple and cheap to exchange parts if necessary. The performance is awesome. Braking and handling is good for a truck. Always felt save in it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Very good truck. Rides very smooth and has plenty of power for a 1/4 ton truck

Cons

I would have kept it if it got better gas mileage.

This Was The Best Truck I've Ever Owned. — I didn't like that three of the windows quit working. I replaced the drivers side but I just secured the two back windows and never got them fixed. I loved the factory sub woofer and the Audiophile stereo system sounded great.

Great American Built Vehicle — Great American built vehicle, plenty of cargo space in the bed, and rides comfortably from home to work every day. The only con is the average MPG at 20 HWY. This was my first Ford and first truck and it was a WIN-WIN on both counts!

Outstanding — Great Family tow vehicle. Great for long trips with the family cross country. My kids and dog love it for our annual long distance travels out of state. Never any issues with maintenance except for oil changes, brakes, and tire replacement when worn. Great towing capacity, and I read the newer models have even a great capacity! Love the 30 gallon gas capacity.

Great Truck. — This is a good running truck and can do what I need it to do. Great truck for family of 4 to pull camper and be comfortable on long trips. Maintenance is not to expensive either if well maintained and taken care of.

F150 — The truck is a great truck when you need to pull or workig in an area where you need to use your 4 wheel drive. But when it comes to driving it on the highway or to use as a DD it will drink your money on gas. Other than gas mileage the truck overall is great.

Great truck, LOVE it!

Cons

Gas mileage for this 4X4 is about 14.5 to 15 mpg, which I guess isnt too bad for a 4 wheel drive.

Great Supercrew — This truck is the best looking truck on the road, I don't like the boxed Chevy's or Dodges...... This Ford pulls my pontoon boat better than any other truck Ive ever had, when I sell this one I will be buying another F150 Supercrew!

Pros

I traded a 2003  F-150 for one of the first new body F-150's to hit So Fla.. I put a flush cap on it as soon as they became available.  My "Black Beauty" gove raves an comments for the next 8 years.  I never regretted the purchase for one second.  My wife referred to it as our LEXIS RV tow vehicle.

Cons

The brakes went ot at 38K, I thought that a bit early.  The passenger window motor had to be replaced three times, twice under warrant.

Ford Hit A Home Run — I was an RV rental dealer at the time. I towed up to 12,500 without a wimper from this great truck.Ford builds great trucks. Buy the best, buy a FORD!

Ford Tough — I love this truck Ford really did a great job building this truck. You can't tell your hauling anything when you are. Tough reliable and comfy when not on crappy roadways and great off road also driving on ice from ice storm.
