2008 Ford F-150 STX 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is a good truck. I purchased the 4.6L V8 and it is underpowered. I suggest that you purchase the larger V8. The electronics should be laid out better. I often take my eyes off the road to change the radio. However, this truck is fun to drive and has a tall stature on the road. Handles well and drive more like a car than a truck. I have the split bench front seat and it is a little uncomfortable on long trips.


Best Features

Cruise control is easy to use. Steering is tight and braking is good. Lights provide good view inside and out.


Worst Features

Redesign the dash to make more user friendly. Improve comfoft in the front seat.

2008 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The King Ranch surpassed my expectations with its option packages, more than my 04 Lariat. Ride is comfortable and fun to drive, power is responsive even with a half ton in the bed. Quiet interior when traveling on a variety of road surfaces


Best Features

Best features are navagation system; satelite radio; rear camera; power folding side mirrors


Worst Features

A symbol of the King Ranch is the saddle bag flap behind both driver and passenger seats; omitted on my King Ranch; put them back where the belong

2008 Ford F-150 XL 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I acquired a F-150 for a heavy work load. Big mistake. This vehicle would be good for occasional work and commuting, but has limited capabilities. It is underpowered, loud, poor gas mileage, and unreliable. I spent a small fortune keeping this truck running. I replaced this truck as quickly as financially possible.


Best Features

Very nice ride for commuting. Nice interior styling.


Worst Features

Poor fit and finish. This truck is not built for heavy work loads. Opt for the F-250 or F-350 if you are using this to make a living.

2008 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned this decked out King Ranch a while now and gotta say that I am extremely impressed with the build quality of Ford. I had a 2006 Dodge diesel 4x4 that had given me so many problems that I was really worried about getting into another American made truck. All I can say is wow!


Best Features

King Ranch leather trim, 20" wheels, nav, folding mirrors, sunroof, Ford motors being easy to modify too.


Worst Features

No need to fix something if it isn't broken.
