2006 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Traded 01 Supercrew for 06. It meets our needs perfectly. Interior finish & passenger accommodations are excellent. The short bed holds everything 2 adults and 3 kids need to travel. Gas mileage is down from 01 but slightly exceeds predictions. The ride is quiet & a little stiff but handling is excellent. Interior storage space is minimal (rear underseat space taken up by the sub woofer). Rear seaters miss individual reading lights. Wheel wells (especially rear) are not closed off as well as the 01 & are difficult to keep clean (also impacts looks). Side impact strip would prevent "door dings". "Nit Pick": would like more substantial grill in vehicle in this price range.
Heated/memory seats. Large outside mirrors. Steering wheel climate control/audio system controls. Automatic temperature control.
More interior storage (compartments behind rear seat back a la the 01?). Message center controls are inconvenient (visibility blocked by the steering wheel). Another power outlet in rear seat. Factory supplied floor mats (particularly rear) are entirely too small (essentially useless).
