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

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.

Great Looking Truck, Drives like new, Feels like a new truck.  Ceramic brakes as well

Cons

V-8 gas mileage

Head Turner — The only thing I do not like is the gas mileage (15.3 mpg). Otherwise the truck is very comfortable, clean, reliable, and most important, sexy. It also has an awesome stero with a factory sub woofer as well under the rear seat. Thanks for looking!

Cons

Fuel economy.

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.

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

Comfortable, Powerful — Very roomy, , comfortable, soft leather. Plenty of power and towing capacity. All the controls are easy to reach and adjustable for most any size driver. Parking sensors a plus for eyes behind the vehicle. Pirelli Scorpion tires are sharp looking. Hope they hold up.

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.

Big Luxury Truck Without Luxury Price — Great truck, love the room and versatility it offers. It hauls items in the bed wonderfully. The heat and air always work the way it should. It has been a great truck for our family. Love the look inside and the comfort!
