2008 Ford F-150 Limited 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The Limited Edition F-150 is my first truck and I am absolutely amazed with it. It has no upgrades except the BF Goodrich All Terrain Tires. In my opinion it is very tough. I have used it to climb very steep mud and dirt hills with no problems at all, and almost completely submerged my engine in muddy water and it continues to preform. I have pulled other trucks out of deep that I was able to get through with ease. I would not trade this truck for anything... well maybe the 2009 Edition but that is it. I love my Ford.


Best Features

Pretty much everything. Especially the abundance of cup holders which is nice. I love the extra 12V ower outlets also very handy.


Worst Features

Since I am 6'5 and so is my father and my brother, I would like to see the cab bigger. We are able to fit in the truck comfortably, however an extra inch or two would be nice.

2008 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 8 ft. LB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have the XL with the XL decor group and auto transmission, limited slip rear end and sliding rear glass. This is the perfect base truck. It is well built and designed, and rides like a cadillac. Gas mileage in town has been as high as 19 which is as good as the Hyundai Accent I replaced was getting. The 10% ethanol blends have not negatively affected mileage like it seems to do with other engines. (straight gas is not available in my state) Plenty of power for a V6. Visibilty is great. The standard features and built in quality are well thought out for a truck


Best Features

Overall quality, gas mileage, I love roll down windows and no power this that and the other to break . Vinyl floor is easy to keep clean. V6 engine is tried and true technology that has a long history and leaves plenty of room under the hood. Ride quality is one of the best I have had in any vehicle


Worst Features

Nothing really. Keep quality up and no frills base models available. Sad to see there will be no V6 available in 2009, but the 4.6 is and strong and tested powerplant too

2008 Ford F-150 STX 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is a good truck. I purchased the 4.6L V8 and it is underpowered. I suggest that you purchase the larger V8. The electronics should be laid out better. I often take my eyes off the road to change the radio. However, this truck is fun to drive and has a tall stature on the road. Handles well and drive more like a car than a truck. I have the split bench front seat and it is a little uncomfortable on long trips.


Best Features

Cruise control is easy to use. Steering is tight and braking is good. Lights provide good view inside and out.


Worst Features

Redesign the dash to make more user friendly. Improve comfoft in the front seat.

2008 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The King Ranch surpassed my expectations with its option packages, more than my 04 Lariat. Ride is comfortable and fun to drive, power is responsive even with a half ton in the bed. Quiet interior when traveling on a variety of road surfaces


Best Features

Best features are navagation system; satelite radio; rear camera; power folding side mirrors


Worst Features

A symbol of the King Ranch is the saddle bag flap behind both driver and passenger seats; omitted on my King Ranch; put them back where the belong
