    Immaculate And Spacious F150 Fx4 — I love everything about the truck except the gas mileage. The interior is very spacious, it has Sirius radio, Bluetooth, ipod sync, moonroof, back glass opens, and plenty of room in the back of the truck. Great vehicle to have

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: positives are the size inside. It is way bigger than any other truck I've been in. It rides very smooth

    Cons: gas mileage

    Room And Mileage — Got this one just for traveling accross the State of Texas to volleyball tournaments with the family. The Ecoboost has plenty of power to tow whatever I want and still gets good mileage on the road. Been averaging 19.6 in the city and 22 mpg on the highway with regular gas. Premium seems to get a little better mileage

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great gas milage and plenty of room for the kid in the back seat

    Cons: Still a little noisey inside compaired to my Chevy

    Very Nice Truck — I liked the most about the truck was it being a completely blacked out truck. Plenty of room for everyone to ride in the truck and plenty of power to get on the highway. Cooled seats is very very nice

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Completely blacked out

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Amazing First Brand New Truck — This truck is great. The power the truck has is amazing. The only problem I have had is the driver side window switch needed to be changed, but was covered under the manufactorers warranty. The truck is amazing to drive. the gas mileage is great on a long trip up to 25 mpg

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything is amazing.

    Cons: i have no problems with the truck

    Do All — The worst thing about these vehicles is the factory tires. I live about 200 yrds down a gravel road and had 5 flat tires in less than 800 miles on the truck. I put 10 ply tires on and sold the tires that it came with.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: All the power plus more torque than v8 in a v6 package.  23 hwy in a 1/2 is kind of impressive.  Rides smooth compared to most half tons.

    Cons: not quite enough room in the bed for 4 men guns and gear hunting trips but we did try to bring too many guns.   18 inch tires are kind of pricey.

    Beast — Great off road and has plenty of room in rear seat area, great for towing the camper. Folding Mirror are great and will save me from replacing it when going through the woods or narrow carport. Back up camera in mirror is great.

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

    Pros: The color, and how much leg room is in the back!

    Cons: Parking because it is such a beast

    Best All Around 6 Seater You Can Buy, Fol Up Center Console Is Great. — Have owned Fords pick ups all my life and this is by far the most advanced vehicle with no issues and best gas mileage in its class. More power than all of my V8's, have pulled a toy hauler North every year for hunting and don't even know it's there. Best all around 4x4 pickup ever made, maybe that's the reason its the number one best seller in the country over all other cars and trucks made. The 2015 is aluminum frame, check the reviews before you buy. I have a relative that works on the stamping dies, I have inside information and will not buy the aluminum frame. 2014 or older steel frame is the way to go for now until they get it right.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: V6 365 HP with twin turbo, power when you need it fuel economy when it counts.  Seats six with fold up center console with all features you need to move the family from point A - B or take it off road and survive the wild.  Interlocking rear axle selector provides posi-traction simply by pulling on selector switch.

    Cons: Nothing - Love it!

    Over 60 Thousand Km On This Truck And It Has Never Let Me Down — I read up a lot on full size trucks and took a few for drives. I settled on the 2012 F-150 with the Ecoboost motor, just because it has gobs of power and was rated with excellent fuel economy. I have not towed yet, but have hauled scrap concrete and misc renovation crap to the city dump with no issues.... truck handled well and did not sag with the added weight in the back. for passing vehicles on the highway...this turbo V-6 is wonderful !! Almost no turbo lag from low speeds and it takes off like a scared rabbit. Hwy fuel economy was 9.2 liters per 100km..or about 25mpg US I get over 18 mpg US in the city Again, I will add that I use premium fuel and have switched to using synthetic oil for lubrication.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel economy is  unreal...better than the ratings...but I do use premium fuel for the Twin Turbo Ecoboost !! Rear Camera makes parallel parking a snap
    Sync systewm takes some getting used to, but once mastered , it works wonderfully.
    Sat radio is a must....no commercials and a great variety of stations.

    Cons: Electronic power steering  is a bit heavy for my liking.  
    Any warranty work done at the dealership was like pulling teeth. Having a legitimate complaint seemed to fall on deaf ears , until they actually experienced the problem ( auxiliary air pump became noisy and was replaced, had to have the power window switch re-initialized 3 times, but still have the occasional time when pressing switch gets no response for up or down motion)
    Finally when I had them do a look over before the bumper to bumper warranty period was up ....they missed the leaking right front strut !!  I went back a week later and had it replaced by them after complaining !!

    Would Buy This Model Again — Love the automatic running boards Great ride. Wonderful space in the back seat. (almost like a limo) Low gas mileage. ecco boost V6 has averaged just under 14 mpg. But some of the poor gas mileage may be due to the driver. ;-)

    A Nice Truck — the only thing i must say that i dont like about this truck is the gas mileage, everything els about it seems to be top of the line, sync is a great feature in this truck and the sony sound system is awesome, i also added a drop in bed liner and a roll'n lock cover on the bed.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its a safe truck, its got the looks, the power, the reliability, and the comfort

    Cons: gas mileage isnt the best, but i think its great for a truck
