I have owned this truck a little while now and it has been nothing but a blessing! The overall quality vs. the money paid in incomparable. Out does Chevy and Dodge on base model pickups. Highly recommend.

This F-150 has been a very solid
vehicle for me. After the disaster that
was my 1999 Olds Bravada the simplicity
was a welcome change. Though I have
only put about 10000 miles on it, I
have not had even a minor mechanical
glitch at this point. With current
incentives, it cost less than my old
SUV did USED. I think this will be a
reliable truck for years to come. The
Super Cab is not very roomy but can
hold an average sized adult male on
shorter trips (under a couple of
hours). The back "doors" help with
getting passengers into and out of the
back. The ride is fairly smooth for a
truck and it gets better milage than

Got the truck at a great deal, about
$9000 off MSRP. Traded a sluggish
2002 4 cyl GMC Sonoma for it. Great
acceleration, solid build & frame.
The ride is smooth and the clutch is
firm. It handles really well over the
road and around corners. From a 26
year old's perspective, it has a great
look for the money->sturdy rear leaf
springs give it an aggressive look
(doesn't look like the typical low end
work truck). I get about 17-18 mpg
but I am going to see how that
improves with future improvements of
toneau cover/exhaust system->that
isn't too bad since "I drive it!!!"
Overall, I'd pick this Ford over the
comparable Chevy, Dodge, and Toyota!
The F-150 Heritage is a carryover of last year's model and therefore presents no new changes. Intended primarily as an affordable work truck, the F-150 Heritage is offered as a standard or extended cab in XL and XLT trim with limited features lists. Notably, the Heritage models are the only F-150s that can still be equipped with a V6 engine and a manual transmission.
