2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Our 2005 Lariat is a well built luxury full size pick up without the Lincoln LT price. We note excellent workmanship with no rattles, loose trim, or mechanical problems after 4,000 miles. We receive lots of positive comments from friends, neighbors, and strangers. The 2005 has improved safety and structural integrity over our two previous F-150's a 1997 and a 2001. The 2005 has more power for towing than our previous 2001 5.4. The 2005 has excellent driveability and is very comfortable on long trips. You are only reminded that you are driving a full size truck when you stop to fill the gas tank (14-19mpg range), but with the need to occasionally pull a horse trailer there is no better option!
Truck like integrity with luxury car features: power rear windows, upgraded sound system with automatic volume adjustment and powered subwoofer, rear window defrost, climate control, the tailgate torsion bar (one hand operation) and the cost effective factory installed tow package. One nice package!
Add as standard equipment: locking metal gas lid, color key body side moldings, color key rear view mirrors, stool to stand on to lift items into bed! Add as options: XM radio, Onstar service, and fiberglass lid. Upgrade quality of carpet & carpeted floor mats and bumper chrome. Improve gas mileage!
