2007 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)
The Lariat F150 was the nicest designed truck we drove. The interior was extremely nice and beat its competitors hands down. It's very well appointed truck but we have taken it into the mountains on some very tight 4WD trails and it has been a great off-road truck. We will primarily using the truck for hauling large items and off-roading to get to quiet places in the mountains. If we were more interested in towing, the F-150 may not have been in play. From a quality/reliability perspective, we thought the Tundra had the edge but we were convinced the Ford would last for a very long time. We have had great success with Fords in the past.
Interior comfort, power fold-in side mirrors, backup sensors. All beat out the competitors and are nice to have in such a large vehicle.
I wish Ford had done some improvements on MPG like others, but I have heard that the cylinder shut-down features on the other trucks doesn't have as great an impact on MPH as one would hope (unverified). Also wish the brakes were beefier.
