2009 Ford F-150 Platinum 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Looked at everything on market- saw the competitive videos that Ford did, that, plus the fact that it is an IIHS Safety pick made the decision-even tough I liked the looks of the Dodge better. Go for the Platinum, you get the deployable running boards, infinitely adjustable tilt wheel and much more for less than $1G more than the KRanch. Others talked about the headrests, they can be bent back out of the way w/out hurting the seat. Only have about 275 miles, all in town, getting about 12mpg, about as expected. This is one ritzy truck, rides like a Caddy, hauls like a Superduty; safe, strong, well built- can't go wrong! Will update later when I know more about MPG over long haul.

Best Features

Fully articulating 10 way seats for BOTH Driver and Pass (for those of us with bad backs, this is a must-have)- NAV, SYNC, Bluetooth, smooth ride, towing stability control. Extra sound insulation in Platinum works! Smooth 6spd, beautiful interior looks like it was designed by Audi- simply gourgeous!

Worst Features

Wood on steering wheel very slippery, make leather wheel std. Desperately needs telescopic wheel. Needs more power. And,PLEASE do something with the big square grill- it's garish- even for a Texan! And how about a DEAD pedal? Apart from that, GREAT job, Ford, never thought I would own another one!
