2010 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
I purchased this truck about a week ago with just under 20k miles on it after trading in an 07' Mazda CX-9 with almost 69k on it. This is only an initial review and I will post a more longterm one after some time.
The Build Quality of this truck is actually really good. All panels line up and even though there is slightly more hard plastic than I'd like on the interior it does give you the feel of luxury all around. There is LOADS of room in the back seat for lounging and the V-8 has plenty of power.
I opted to not have the EcoBoost after hearing some issues it's currently having and I can't say I regret it. Truck purrs like a kitten and has an AMAZING ride
I Like the MyKey and Sync systems in the truck... We intend to let our kids drive it in the future and these are features that will help us keep control over some aspects of driving. Some of the interface can be a little confusing but with practice its really not that bad.
Gas mileage for a full sized truck is reasonable... It is no compact car by any means but anyone purchasing a truck should already know they'll be spending more in gas.
Ride is extremely smooth and its actually one of the quietest vehicles I've ever driven. Steering is dead on the money for a truck and the 4x4 works very quickly and efficiently to help me get through the touch ND winters
I've heard rumors about a clutch in the rear diff... I feel this was a poor design for a limited slip and if I start to have problems I'll be sure to include them later.
Some of the interior pieces are very cheap feeling but from what I've seen of the new body style for 15' this is something that has been addressed very well.
Some of the Mykey and Sync interfaces are very confusing to navigate (even without a nav system) but this wasn't a deal breaker for me. Being technologically inclined after a few run-thru's of the system I had it down.
A very nice truck for the price with LOADS more room than I had before. Would highly reccommend
