This is a great truck, we like it better all the time and would recommend it to anyone needing a truck for work and family. Acceleration and ride are very good. The 2010 model brakes have a linear response, gear changing and engine stopping/restarting are smooth and quick, and there are more cup holders and storage compartments. After 6400 miles we had 20-22 mpg hwy (at pump), 20 mpg mixed local driving, and 19 mpg city. Gas savings estimated to be $600/yr at $3/gal and 10K mi/yr. Subtracting out $2200 hybrid tax credit, savings would pay for the difference in price in 3 years. Only one minor problem, a tire pressure sensor went out. Has an 8 year warranty on hybrid components.
Truck is solid, handles well, tows more than old F150. 4WD works well on farm, traction and braking on ice and snow are good. Roomy front and back seats, fold down storage console and lockable storage, 2 glove boxes, airbags (front, canopy, and seat side), antilock brakes, stability control.
Backup system so can see better behind when backing up because rear is high, small wide-angle mirror inserts, integrated trailer brake (a $90 add-on but should be included), ceiling storage for glasses, bed extender to 8', and wing vents (like on our old F150). Had dealer add running boards.
