Honest review - 07 KING RANCH
By Bill on
2007 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
"Z" plan buyer (owned 15 Fords). Best luxury truck in class...but. Ford is so close to perfect but misses the mark on basic no brainer features and poor warranty. I'm convinced the engineers do not drive trucks and do models and CAD design for looks not function. Unfortunately, they could have a home run and turn around the company if they would listened to the public and get back to basics. Weak A/C and pitiful fuel economy. Front passengers have elbows in rear cupholders. Poor location. Most Ford dealerships try to scam general public and still try to con the A, X and Z plan buyers with over-inflated dealer adds further ruining Ford experience.
Pros -- overall interior design is a 10 - Ride is excellent except somewhat stiff and herky jerky in rear on bumps - Steering wheel controls - Tailgate actuators - 20" wheels - Power fold mirror - Satellite radio - Backup sensors, front needed - Upgrade the key and fob like Volkswagen.
- A/C weak - Pitiful gas mileage - Engine weak for size - Rear cupholder location - Sunglasses holder - Locking gas door - Improved floor mats & larger one in rear for 3 people - Bluetooth hands free - Standard bed liner - Standard 6 airbags curtain - Keyless start - Onstar - Improved warranty 4year/60,000 miles.
