Good 2wd pickup
By tpiatt150 on
2005 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)
I purchased this truck new and have been very impressed.Its no speed machine nor a powerhouse but does very well for being a 1/2 ton truck. This truck with the 5 speed is very peppy for having a 4.2 liter engine. It has also performed just fine while towing other cars and pulling loaded trailers. On average I get about 22 MPG on the interstate and could not be any happier with it.
The little doors to let you behind the seats are great. The 5 speed transmission is nice and fun to drive.
It would be nice to have more cup holders.Also to shorten hieght of the bedsides would be nice as it makes it a pain to get items out of the bed. The F 150 emblems are not very good as the color washes out of the lettering. Also fog lights as an option on the 5 speed models would be nice.
