Pros

Very comfortable, quiet ride. Plenty of power. Drives like a dream! The competition doesn't even come close to the off-road capabilities of this truck. Can handle anything you throw at it. This truck was built with you in mind. It's got something for everyone!!

Cons

MPG, price.

Luxurious Work-horse — Competitors? This truck has none!! The Ford F-150 is the definition of "Work Hard, Play Hard". Under the hood you will find 300 Horses just waiting to be released, and you feel it when you put your foot on the gas, yet when you close the doors and windows, turn up the radio, and take full advantage of the heated front seats, you forget all about your tough day at work, and remember that if your truck wasn't Built Ford Tough, then your day could have been a whole lot tougher. With this truck sitting in your driveway, it doesn't matter what you have to do that day, your F-150 will help you conquer it all. You can go to the construction site, pull big rigs out of the mud, haul stone the bed, tow a load of hay rated to be towed only by a rig all the way across town, then just run it through a car wash, and your have the perfect date night ride for a special someone.

Reliable Strong Work Truck — I love the rubber coated floor and leather interior. The power is perfect for hauling just about anything. The 8 foot long bed is awesome. Would definitely buy another ford truck in the future. Would recommend this vehicle to anybody.

My Second Truck Of This Gen. — It has a 5.4 FFV, Leather, Sunroof, 4x4, PW, PL, PS, 10' Subs 20' rims. This has been a good truck, I'm not to fond of the rims but all in all I love this truck. The only work I had done is a rear-end job.

Great lookin truck. Good power. Good bang for the buck.

Got the infamous death rattle at 146000km. Blew a seal in the hydraulic cam chain tensioner. Costly repair long story.

Still Love My Truck. — Love the interior setup. Exterior looks like a truck unlike some in those years. Great power. Awesome for towing our 25' camper. But in the end all makes are great til the breakdown then they are all in the same class. Would buy another any day.

Ford F150 Fx4 Supercrew — Amazing truck! Has great power, a back seat that is the size of a lazy boy couch and front captain chairs that you are liable to fall asleep in they are so comfortable. Great buy would recommend to anyone looking!

Great Work Vehicle With Plenty Of Power And Stylish Look. — Smooth and quiet ride, responsive handling, attractive and functional cabin, multiple cab and bed configurations.Thanks to its stiff frame, double-wishbone front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, the 2008 Ford F-150 delivers impressive ride and handling dynamics for a full-size truck. The brakes feel solid, with a firm pedal, but stopping distances are still longer than most of the F-150's competition.
