An Ok First Car — Ford seems to know how to make a fairly good truck, they could stand to do a little better on the build quality (interior). This one has over 750,000 miles on it (still mostly original 302). Everything still works on it as well (A/C, radio, etc.). The acceleration is amazing (but is helped with some engine mods). The handling is not bad (lots of play in the steering). It rolls around a bunch, but always grips. The brakes do an ok job stopping it (it does weigh almost 4 tons), but lock up easily. The three speed transmission is a dumb idea but it works just fine around town. When you put your foot hard down on the highway(above 65mph), since it only has three gears you get lots of noise but not a ton of acceleration. I feel safe driving it, but worry if I hit anyone I might end up killing them since modern cars are all plastic and this is iron and steel.

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

Pros: Lots of torque, comfortable seats, cheap to repair, lots of mods avalible

Cons: 2-10 MPG,  no back seats, brakes lock up easily, poor acceleration over 70-75 mph,

Overall The Best Truck I Have Owned And Driven. By SJ6863

If you are looking for a truck that feels like a truck and not an SUV I would choose the F-150. I have driven the Ram 1500 and Nissan Titan, and both feel like an SUV. What I mean by having an SUV fee... Read More

Great Truck By Keith

I like the looks, room, power, towing capabilities and it fits in my garage where a F250 will not. Truck gets horrible gas mileage, enough so that I purchased a Subaru to drive on a daily basis, this... Read More

Awesome By XEODGuy

The ecoboost engine is fantastic, lots of low end grunt, very smooth and effortless but, they should have come with a manual mode selection (different mapping) for better fuel economy. The 3.73 rear e... Read More

Good Allround Pickup By golfnut_bill
