2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab FX4 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Although I average 1,500 miles per month, I have put 4,000 miles on this one in the first month because it is fun to drive. Quiet interior and excellent handling have been pleasant surprises - I have never before driven trucks that came close. My other vehicle is a BMW 3 Series so my fun to drive comparison is not against something shabby. The only real reason I now find for using the Bimmer is fuel economy. Sure the F-150 cannot compare with the BMW on acceleration, but I can't say the truck is a real dog, something I had expected from reading reviews. Instead my problem is trying to keep it reined in. High speeds come quickly and unexpectedly due to the quiet and the ride.

Best Features

Quiet, handling, ride, adjustable pedals, large console, console mounted shift lever.

Worst Features

Fuel economy, dual visors like on low cost Ford fleet rentals, cruise control similar to European cars I have rented (top speed limiter), available side air bags, available electric trailer brakes (like the Super Dutys).
