2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This truck rides and drives like a luxury car. One of the smoothest rides in this market range.
Go to the showroom and look at the head-to-head comparisons between the F-150, Silverado, Tundra, and Dodge. They show pieces of the frame, suspension, bed mounting bolts, type of steel, and safety features. The F-150 wins in all the areas listed above.
The 4.6 liter is a bit small. Chevy has a 4.8 with more horsepower and better fuel economy that meets minimum standards needed to tow a boat or trailer. The radio has the cheesiest sound quality I have heard in a new vehicle.
