Quiet, comfortable, & safe cruiser
By JH on
2009 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Pulls 34' trailer ok in Midwest but might be tough in mountains. Quiet over bumps. Captain chairs are very comfortable. Feels safe & smooth. Nav/Sync is great. Front doors sound a little tinny when closing. Tailgate step is useful. Can stack 5 dog crates in rear of cab on flat floor. Would prefer quicker steering ratio. Unable to get DRL's so leave headlights on all the time. No problems so far. No excessive oil consumption; mpg normally around 16-17 but only 6-8 w/ that trailer. Tow/haul feature works great. Miss having locking fuel filler. Beautiful truck. Cooled front seats are a nice extra. Might be nice to have a grab handle on driver's side A-pillar. Love our truck.
Comfortable captain's chairs; Ford's Nav/sync system w/ Sony radio; trailer brake controller & sway controller; tailgate step; roomy cabin; beautiful interior; solid body and quiet, smooth ride; prefer appearance of '08's tailgate & taillights to this '09
Add DRL option; give front doors a solid thunk sound when closing just like the rear ones have; add A-pillar grab handle for driver; design stack controls better such that driver doesn't have to study them to operate HVAC, sound, & Nav systems (I have to look away from road too long to do it.)
