2006 Ford F-150 SuperCab XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Well, I bought this truck replacing my 2003 Silverado which gave me more problems than the 89 Silverado I sold. I bought my Ford used as a certified used truck and as of now I have no complaints. It's been on the road longer than the Silverado I bought brand new. I Like it a lot better than my Chevy, and it would have smoked my Chevy in a quarter mile with ease. It is true blue mettalic with the bottom quarter silver mettalic. It has everything I want in a full size truck and then some. The storage room could be better, but you could always get the Super Crew!


Favorite Features

The power and torque, most of the locations for all the drivers controls. I like the sound system as well. The little shocks for the hood to stay up. Back-up sensors, when its not winter out!


Suggested Improvements

More areo dynamic design for tailgate area. Standard daytime running lights, or eaiser to add on. Change the tilt steering lever to just a button to push or pull, not the weird one that's in there now. When truck is shut off, all doors unlock! Change lock out switch for back windows only!

Review

This is my second f-150 and what a blast to drive, it handles amazing! With more power than you need in the 5.4. I have pulled loads over 11000 pound and can still easily pass on the freeway almost like there’s nothing behind the truck. For work its tough as nails can handle any thing you need to do I put this truck through a lot and it never missed a tick! Extremely reliable.


Favorite Features

Handling, comfort, and I absolutely love all the torque the mighty 5.4 pushes out can tow almost anything you hook to.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy but Ford is taking care of that for the 09 model and will have the new direct inject for 2010 which get better emissions than the hybrids. I get 15 mpg in town and 21 on the highway. Not too bad for a big 4x4.

Review

Even though I had an idea that the MPG would be far less than I would like, it was like going from the ridiculous to the sublime. Around town I average 12/14MPG, Highway, 15/16MPG no load. I pulled a 23' Travel trailer for 6000 Mi. and averaged 9MPG! That little trip coast us $2,000.00! Power from the 5.4L, V-8 is not that good at all on the climbs with trailer...the flat is fine. While I might consider the F- Series truck again, it would be Diesel powered. This truck has been very reliable. Ride quality is much better than a GM product. GM has the power and now MPG edge. JCH


Favorite Features

Reliability, ride quality, looks, driver visability. Fit & finish is good.


Suggested Improvements

Increased gas, V-8 HP, torque and MPG, diesel engine option

Review

Bought this vehicle to replace my old work truck, a 2000 f-150 XLT SuperCab with 400,000 km. So Far, this vehicle has considerably more power, tighter ride, though the visibility is somewhat less. the deeper box is handy, but do miss the 8ft box. Handles back roads and work trails better than most of the competition. Overall, a comfortable, tough work truck.


Favorite Features

Tougher, less flexible frame, multiple power points. Better electrical system.


Suggested Improvements

The more open engine compartment tends to accumulate road salt mist, which may cause corrosion problems down the road.

Review

Solid truck. Surprised by price vs quality. Went to get a Dodge Ram. Upset at first. Fuel economy is great. Plenty of get up. Would not put a plow on it.


Favorite Features

Power of the 4.6 much better than a '98. Fuel economy. Had a GM 6.0 Litre. Faster than the Ford. Loose bottom end


Suggested Improvements

Dont change a thing,

Review

The only thing that the truck needs is stronger rear suspension and a little more low end power. Easily fixed by airbag suspension and a few performance upgrades.


Favorite Features

Rear power windows, fits 33x12.50 mud tires without lift, countless amount of available performance and exterior accessories.


Suggested Improvements

Stronger rear suspension.

Review

When they say "Built Ford Tough" they're right 100%! I bought the truck new as a left over 2006 model, and so far, nothing has been a problem. I love this truck. It tops all of the other six trucks I've ever owned. It has a rugged, tough truck look, and a car-like plushy interior. I went looking for a truck, expecting to find one that i liked, but when i drove the F-150 out on a test drive, i loved every inch of it!


Favorite Features

The power roll down rear door windows (instead of the useless pop out ones!). Endless list of standard features, and the wider opening rear doors.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing at all.

Review

I have had many F150's when I was younger but stopped buying them when my need for more pulling power grew (more toys to haul). After a couple of V10 Super Duty's, I decided on the new 3 valve 5.4L. It doesn't have the sheer torque of the V10 but seems to have enough to haul my toys around. It has greater style and comfort than my V10 F350.


Favorite Features

Interior is very sharp and reminds me of my Audi TT interior...really like the all leather bucket seats and the steering wheels thumb switches .


Suggested Improvements

Less plastic! More chrome.

Review

The truck is enjoyable to drive, however every moderate bump in the road sends a chilling vibration through both inner doors and (yes) they do rattle loudly! I do have the towing pkg, but I feel the ride should be much softer, smoother, and quieter. The looks and style of the truck inside and out are great. Fuel economy is ok, however I can't help wondering what kind of a rattletrap this truck will be in 5 years. One final word, the first cold weather start (17 degrees) the 5.4 engine whistled loudly for several minutes before finally settling down.


Favorite Features

The looks inside and out, the 6 CD player, the big mirrors, dash setup and handling are all nice.


Suggested Improvements

Fire the cup holder designer and come up with one that's practical and doesn't require 2 hands to use, and a small light for location would help too. Most of all investigate why the inner workings of the doors shake and rattle when going over moderate bumps in the road.

Review

This is my 8th new Ford truck in the past 12 years. I have put approximately 650,000 miles on these trucks in the 12 years since my first. I am convinced that no other truck could or would have given me the service I got from these vehicles. Other than some initial adjustments under warranty I have not spent $1 in vehicle repairs (break downs, part failures). Shocks, tires and normal maintenance is all I have ever needed to do!
