Very impressed by my first truck.
By timhood on
2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew FX4 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I'm a first-time truck owner. To be honest, no other truck has ever been compelling enough to get me to consider buying. Until now. I first saw this truck at the auto show and was shocked by the luxury of the interior. The FX4 interior is by far the best of any brand/model out there.
Exterior and interior styling; butter-smooth engine (at idle you wonder if it's even running); quality (no problems thus far); build choices (something like 47 different body/bed/trim combinations plus tons of options; towing (pulled a friend's 24' cabin boat with no issues); fits in my garage.
I would have picked the standard suspension (like the FX4 too much); gas mileage can be better (like all full-size trucks).
