Cons

Milage

Reliable Truck — Good value truck for work or home. Rides high so you get a good view of things around you. Mileage is what you would expect from a full size truck. Only problem i have had with the truck is that the both power window motors went out and had to be replaced

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Strong troublefree engine, cold start up, comfortable, heat/ac awesome, quiet interior, lotsa leg room for leggy family, looks sharp, handles very easily on turns, higher speeds and stop and go traffic, mpg costs better than fair for a truck & beats our Marquis,

Cons

Left view for passing clearance blind spot (cab frame), step side steps small, caution on outside body trim (noted trouble areas by dealer on warranty maintenance appts) easy fix tho, minor to even note but that's all I got for cons!

Cons

Sometimes parking sucks

Awesome! — Performance wise the truck is got good power and can peel out no problem. The one problem that it does have is that common noise in the engine that everyone talks about. The exterior has a minor dent on the back but it looks really good. The interior is complete. It has 19mpg hwy and around 14 to 16 on the city. Maintenance-wise its cheap for me since I do most of the job. The truck is really fun to drive and it makes other people scared of you, they move out the way since they see a big truck.

Great For Doing Stuff. — The truck drives great, looks good, and great for weekend project. The truck gas mileage is not so good about 16 city and 21 on highway. It maybe a little less. Even with gas mileage I still love driving it.

The all around capability

Get the bigger v8(5.4L)

Sucks On Gas But Still Worth It! — I bought this truck used, it has the smaller v8 so it doesnt take off very fast but I have never had an issue with towing the families fishing boat and travel trailer. It is very fun too drive especially with a lift kit and exhaust, you feel very safe inside of it. It is expensive to own due to the gas mileage, but it is worth it when you want the power and the four wheel drive. It looks awesome, ford did a great job with this model.

Pros

Good utility truck(towing, pulling, cargo, etc.)  Reliable in the Winter for sure; Pretty comfy and roomy especially with two little girls, my wife and I.  Decent mileage for a truck.

Cons

Maintenance costs/repairs.  Misfires apparently happen quite a bit due to the poor design of the spark plugs in this model.

Decent Truck..... — Well, this will be the second time bringing this truck into a Ford Dealership, due to engine misfires/plug issues. This is a very common problem that Ford Canada doesn't really seem to give two craps about. I will not waste my money ever again on a Ford Truck, unless its a late 80's one for the farm. We've had this truck for a year and the maintenance aspect, cost and the utter disregard for customer safety and relations is disgusting in my opinion. Hopefully all of the models of this year are'nt like mine.... Quality engineers and design officers at Ford should have been fired for this one. Shoulda bought a Chevy...?
