2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew King Ranch 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This truck is great looking, nice leather and the older the leather gets the better looking. Truck handles well, however is a little on the heavy side.


Best Features

King Ranch Castano Leather, Dark Stone Metallic Paint Looks Great.


Worst Features

On the radio controls need to be able to use button to go backwards on song selection. Needs a storage compartment in dash like the older model to place a wallet. Would love to have satellite radio to play through existing radio instead of aftermarket, Delphi actually makes Ford radios?

2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Great truck, so far only 3,000 miles on it and no complaints. Gas mileage not great but it's a truck. The interior is like a sedan with no engine noise and very little road noise. A/C is not cold; on 100 degree days it can still be warm in the cab. The sound system is lacking power unless you add a amp. or aftermarket speakers. The power of the truck is adequate for the truck size. C'mon your pushing 5500 lbs. of steel. When you step on the gas it will go, it just takes a little bit longer. The new tires that Ford has contracted with is okay, why didn't they make a more common size; it's pretty hard to find a replacement tire. Overall great truck.


Best Features

The design is great, it looks like a truck not a bug. The interior is straight forward and controls are simple to use.


Worst Features

Let's have cold A/C and a stereo system that has power.

2005 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XLT Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

When I first got this truck it pulled hard to the left during braking. it took 3 months for them to fix the problem. It has 3 vibrations, 1 in the motor they say it is normal per Ford. They replaced the driveline, they rebuilt the rear end replaced the rotors, the calipers, brakes, and changed something in the fuel economy system. It now gets 16 mpg, through all this I still have two vibrations and a wobble at 35 mph. I now have a different mechanic looking at it. He says it looks like a driveline problem and motor vibration, and something to do with the transmission, due to the 45 to 55 mph vibration.


Best Features

Exterior and interior is great.


Worst Features

Fix the vibration from v6 motor, driveline, recheck the calipers.

2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew Lariat 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

DVD/CD player is much to be desired, cannot hookup iPod or Palm, DVD does not support dual play. Blind spots like crazy, mirrors not heated, engine sits too far back in chassis, thermostat does not work correctly, how can it be 66 all the time? Dealer does not have a clue, typically Ford Junk Found On Road Dead.


Best Features

Tires, Goodyears are great.


Worst Features

Train mechanics to fix problems, FREE DVD/CD since they work half the time anyway. Tell dealer to give me my money back.

Review

I bought this truck last Monday and I have to say I am well impressed. The truck is very well laid out with features. The 300 hp 5.4 runs great with lots of power. Transmission shifts smooth.


Best Features

6 disk CD, heated mirrors, running boards, towing package, locking tailgate and spare tire, keypad entry, auto dim mirror, turn signals in the mirrors.


Worst Features

XM Radio.
