2015 Ford F-150: 25,000-Mile Update
by Scott Oldham, Editor-in-Chief on October 21, 2015
Our 2015 Ford F-150 doesn't sit around much. The truck's odometer showed 21,156 miles at the end of September. Three weeks later we popped it past the 25,000-mile mark.
We've only owned the Ford for 10 months.
So far this month, the F-150 has towed a racecar, tackled the daily commute, Home Depot'd, Ikea'd and Costco'd, and hauled an engine and transmission, a stack of bikes to the beach, random boxes of random junk, and of course the kids to school. Like I said, it doesn't sit around much.
Meanwhile, we have no problems, issues or complaints. Not even a nit to pick. The Ford has been so reliable and durable we didn't even take it to the dealer for its recent oil change, choosing to do the job ourselves instead. And it's a good thing we did. If you missed it earlier this week, read about that scary discovery here.
But it's also the F-150's extreme levels of comfort and performance that have made it a staff favorite. Some even prefer it to our long-term Ram 1500, despite the Ram's undeniably smoother ride and better mileage. Editors in the Ford camp cite the lighter truck's seat comfort, quick steering, and responsive Ecoboost powertrain as the F-150's advantages.
We've got a few months to go in this 12-month test. We should have no problem getting the 4x4 Ford over the 30,000-mile mark. Stay tuned.
