This truck is awesome. It is everything Ford advertises it as and nothing more. Power from the v-10 is very comparable to my previous 460 big block. This is the best gasoline engine ever to come in a truck. The 6 speed manual works great and has probably the lightest smoothest clutch I have ever felt, while still handling the big power. The solid 1 ton axles can handle anything and the suspension rides firm and stable, just like a truck should. The gas mileage may only be 11-13 but that is the trade off you get with 355 horsepower and a heavy duty truck.
Big power, stout drivetrain, firm ride, lots of looks and compliments from people when you drive by.
Electronic throttle is slow to respond, doesn't do burnouts quite the same as the big block with the mechanical throttle.
