    The mechanical is better and so is the comfort and tow pkg.
    Handling Ranked 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 worse.
    "yes, firmer on the road"
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 worse.
    "I had gone threw four very expensive transmissions in my old Silverado plus the engine overheating for years. So far three years with this FORD and (knock on wood) nothing but good reliability."

    F-150 is one of the highest rated Trucks year after year. Available in eco-boost, the Ford F-150 offers the perfect combination of Power, Luxury and Utility.
    Power Ranked 2012 Nissan Titan worse.
    "The F-150 seemed to have better pickup and overall power."
    Front Seats Ranked 2012 Nissan Titan worse.
    "Seats allow for a more comfortable ride overall. Although the Titan has more headroom, the F-150 allows for more than enough room without the bulk of the Titan."

    Awesome — 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 end makes it difficult to cruise on the highway over 70 without running in boost all the time. Ford should have allowed the driver to select a different mode that would have opened a waste gate to reduce boost pressure. Other than that great truck, 46k miles and no issues.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great all around truck, very smooth on highway, handles well, loves to run, looks great.

    Cons: Microsoft

    Good Allround Pickup — Good looking vechicle with plenty power and torgue. It has the 3.5l eco-boost and outshines my old 5.4L in both power and economy. The only thing I don't like is how low it is in the front end. I plan to put a 2" lift kit in this spring. The ride is like a luxury car, compared to my 2001 F-150.

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

    Pros: econ., power and looks

    Cons: sync is confusing

    2012 Ford F-150 Ecoboost — I have had many vehicles and this one is a keeper. You have style, power, durability. With gas at a record low we can really enjoy long travels and knowing we will be safe. I hope this is our last truck as it is a keeper.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More power than we ever needed.

    Cons: None

    Would Buy Another Anytime! — Cannot say enough about my experience with FORD. The F150 is super dependable. had it 2 years from the showroom and only 1 small warranty issue. Looks like new. The sunroof venting also cools off things fast. Had no idea it had a power inverter to run a laptop or small electric appliance. A factory option!!!

    Pros: LOVE this truck.  The AC in the seats is AWESOME in south Florida.  Great styling and the SYNC system is wonderful.  Dependable and fun to drive.

    Cons: Wish it had better gas mileage.

    Awesome Truck — We love to take the truck on vacations. Tons of room for the people in side & cargo in back. Great for towing my old car to car shows. The big gas tank is great for vacations we can go about 700 miles between fill-ups.

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

    Pros: This truck drives & rides nicer than most cars.  has plenty of room on the inside for those long road trips.  Great for towing & hauling.

    Cons: Cost a lot to purchase.  Gas mileage is a little low for a daily driver.

    It Works Well For Family And Recreation. — I liked the remote start and the key pad entry. That is the BOMB! It handles very well in all kinds of weather and types of roads. I felt very secure in this truck in all conditions. It also looks handsome. The fact that the tallest person I know, at 6'9", is comfortable in the back seat is a bonus.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Zippy!  

    Cons: Light Duty

    Good Truck If They Can Fix The Throttle Issues. — Comfortable, quiet ride for a truck. Great suspension, great handling make this truck a nice ride. The only thing I have as a con is the throttle. I dislike the throttle response. In my opinion the throttle actuator HAS TO GO AWAY! There was nothing wrong with a direct connection to the throttle body with a cable. Please go back to a throttle cable. The throttle response hurts this truck so much. This is a work truck issued by the company that I work for. If I test drove this truck, I would not buy it just for the throttle issue. Other than that, that braking system is a little weak for the truck. Everything else excellent! thanks.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Plenty of HP for the truck

    Cons: Typical Ford poor throttle response. Could use a stronger braking package.
