Good — I like how the car is big and how it is a V8. also love the 4x4 in the snow. no issues with handling. also was great pulling people out of the ditches. it is a great family truck because of it's size

Awesome Truck — I liked that it could pull both my enclosed or flatbed trailers with no problem. Very durable and dependable vehicle. Could get better gas mileage, but not as bad as others I have driven. Would like if it had a quieter ride.

Best Truck On The Road — I bought this truck new and have only had a couple minor issues, front calipers needed to be replaced at 6 years, pinion seal, and that's about it. Everyone's front ford emblem deteriorates which I would like to see fixed. OEM floor mats are ridiculous for a truck so will need upgrading. Not much torque and towing a boat she can struggle at times but does OK.

No Better Truck On The Market. This Is My 5 F150! — One Awesome Truck! 5.4 Liter with 3:73 gears. 90K and tows my boat with easy! Fit and finish outstanding. very comfortable to drive long distances. Power is right there! Towing is a breeze and it handles excellent. I often look in the rear view mirrors to see if my boat is still back there.

Test Drive A Few Times Before Committing To It, Enjoy It Before You Buy It — Performance is above average, great acceleration, great for those who want to lead. Its a tightly built vehicle, not a whole lot of squeaks or other noises. The style is better than that of its predecessors, Its fairly decent for fuel economy, with regular warranty maintainence, this vehicle shouldnt cost you much in repairs. Its fun for me to drive, because its new to me. I dont follow well, so say hi to my tailgate as i pass you on the highway.

Pros

Plenty of room inside and out.

Cons

Heavy on the fuel which is always a concern for a family and has a ticking in motor that is common for the 5.4L which annoys me.....

Not 100% Happy With Ford Vehicles..... — We liked the space inside and out, plenty area in the back for the beach kids stuff,work equipment and pretty much handles like any 4wd should. But Ford being Ford, have some design problems mixed in with some great tech. 5.4L motor has a ticking noise which they say is the timing phases which if repaired, the sound will come back....annoying! Secondly, they used 2 different types of metals in the construction of the engine with makes a big problem with a simple spark plug change, which costs the owner of the vehicle $400.....the OEM plugs can strip out and makes the change out expensive. Ford new about the problem in late 2006 but did nothing until the2010 models trucks came out. Plus high MGP sucks....... I think Ford need to lift their game if they want to stay competive around the world with there range of vehicles, they may have the market sown up here in the US but they are loosing in the rest of the world badly. Believe me.......i have lived in a few different countries over the past 20 years.

Best Full-size Pickup You Can Buy.period. — The Fuel economy is not very great, great handing and braking, little to no blind spots and very, very reliable. Looks absolutely beautiful with saddle leather seats and can really enjoy the outdoors with the sunroof, only downside is the gas mileage.

Who Needs A Car When You Have This? — The F-150 has one of the most well-laid out interiors of any truck. Fit and finish is excellent, controls are well placed and have good tactile feel. The crew cab offers generous room and comfortable amenities for all passengers. While the engine is certainly less capable than its competitors, this is only noticed when towing heavy loads. Every day driving produces more than acceptable performance.
