Review of the 2004 Ford F-150

  • A class leader when it comes to ride, handling and hauling capability, but a little extra poundage and its lack of side airbags keep it from completely rolling over the competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Exceptional ride and handling characteristics, attractive and functional interior designs, multiple cab and bed configurations, most payload and towing capacity in the half-ton class.

  • Cons

    Feels sluggish even with larger V8, no available side airbags, not much interior storage space.

  • What's New for 2004

    The F-150 is fully redesigned for 2004. It's bigger, more powerful and offers a greater variety of features and body styles than ever before.

I have been driving a Toyota Tacoma and it was fine but I wanted a larger full size truck. I gave the Toyota to my daughter and went truck shopping. I test drove a reg. cab Tundra but every thing on a Toyota is now an option-I am surprised they come painted. I found the F150 with the eight foot bed to be what I wanted. As soon as I saw it I knew I would be buying that truck. The one I bought had the trailer towing package installed-I didn't have to spend a weekend putting a hitch on it. It also came with limited slip axle, may never need it but its there if I do. I took it back to have the dealer install the factory type cruise control.




I love this truck

For the most part the new f150 is a fine truck. My main complaint is that they droped the ball matching this motor with this truck.I find it very slugish on the lower end of the power band. The truck i traded in had a 4.2 6 cylinder with 110000 miles and it still had more bottom end tourque. They need to put more horsepower under the hood!!!!!
