This is my first truck. Every vehicle I have ever owned was under powered and I made an agreement with myself that I would not make this mistake in a truck. I took it a little to far, because this truck has more power than I will ever need. But it is so much fun to smoke an F150 off the line when they feel the need to egg me on.
The interior is well designed and the ride is excellent for a truck. I took a 1300# load to the dump the other day and even though the rear suspension told me something was there, the engine didn't even skip a beat.
We all wish that gas mileage was better and my only complaint would be city economy at 12 MPG, but highway is a respectable 21 MPG at 70 MPH.
