2010 Ford F-150 Platinum 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Couldn't pass up the deal on the platinum. The Dodge sport had the ride and motor that Ford could only dream of, the Chevy had. Old design on everything and the Ford. Truly has every creature comfort known. Everyone tells me this is the most luxurious vehicle they have ever been in and I have to agree. Needs a real motor though, we use our f150's as trucks and actually pull things. The anemic little 5.4 has to hit 4000 rpm constantly to even keep the speed limit when towing (and can't keep up). Don't try passing, don't expect anything more than an overgrown 6 cylinder Motor brings down the whole reason for buying a truck (no, we don't need a f250).

Best Features

Air/Heat blowing through seats! Nav works awesome, sync sorta works with IPhone, back seats are so comfortable with leg room, rear seats fold up for flat cargo area, tailgate step rocks, auto wipers are amazing, love almost everything except motor and outdated interface for sync/nav

Worst Features

Sync/Nav system is outdated tech from years gone by and needs to be current technology (useless HD needs CD's, USB format is Fat32, etc). 5.4L drops mileage in half when towing, no power, worst motor of all 8 cylinder (need to bring back a 5.7L style torque motor).
