Love The Truck-but it needs a 'Nose Job'
By dvickers on
2009 Ford F-150 Platinum 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Haven't purchased one yet, but soon will-looked at everything else- really liked the dodge, but safety rating on Dodge(side crash) unnaceptable. Superior ride, billet solid, no squeaks. Seats MUCH more supportive than last model, last one hurt my back after only 10 minutes. Ford did their homework-anti-trailer sway control might save your life-only thing I disliked is the gawdawful grill-I'm from TX, where everything is big, but they went overboard! Last model's grill much more attractive. Will purchase Platinum vs King Ranch- price it out, there's less than $1,000 difference, and you get the automatic running boards that are actually in the right place to use as a step when deployed.
Solid, quiet ride, limo like backseat, beautiful interior, orthopedically designed, fully articulating front seats, safety features superior to anything out there; innovative features like tailgate step (great for people with bad backs),power side steps (Platinum only)
Needs more power. Telescopic wheel, and how bout a dead pedal? Oh, and do a little rhinoplasty on that grill! Reclining rear seats would be nice, there's plenty of room. OTher than that, perfect truck- will replace my SUV and tow tons more!
