Pros: Seats six and looks!
Cons: No internal storage
Advice: Get a tonneau cover and easy on the gas pedal.I bought this truck based on its complete redesign in 2004. The fully boxed frame, outrigger rear shocks, quiet steel, powerful engine, and seats six. It has so many positive features. Did I mention the looks. I am able to tweak out 18.6 MPG mixed driving this past fill-up. I check tire pressure monthly and clean the air filter monthly. Set the cruise control as often as you can. No jack-rabbit starts. Definitely slow down. It makes a huge difference. The only draw-back is the cost of fuel. It;s killing our budget. I am able to go 9 or 10 days between fill-ups. Not long enough. I would prefer to go a full 14 days in between. Oh well. I knew that going in when I bought the truck. I only wish it had more internal storage space.
Pros: Having 4 doors
Cons: no answer for this question
Advice: If intending to tow anything, I'd recommend to buy a truck with the towing packageMy name is Ron, and I'm a former Chevrolet owner. Why did I buy a Ford... It's a FINE Looking Truck!! Let me tell y'all, I've taken some ribbing about this change, but I'm not sorry in the least!! I did't like the previous, rounded over looking Ford truck models, but this new style is Fantastic!! The recent chevy's have just been plain ugly. Since I needed to get the whole family in the truck, I looked at all the 4-door trucks out there; After the dust settled, I bought the SuperCrew, and I'm very pleased with it. AND, I'd like to add, the jap-brands are over-rated and WAY OVER-PRICED!! You'd think they make them out of gold.
Pros: The look and the 6 passenger feature.
Cons: The tires( Continental Contritrac)on the truck get new one A.S.A.P.for a better look.
Advice: Pass on the 4.6 liter engine the 5.4 has alot more power and gas mileage is about the sameTraded in my 2004 Super Crew 4.6 liter for the 2006 FX4 5.4 liter. LOVE IT!! go with the 5 liter engine more power with about the same gas mileage.
Cons: I liked every thing about it.
Advice: to buy the Ford F-150 because is the best in classThe Ford F-150 is the best truck ever built, thats why it is the best selling truck for 26 years in arrow. The Chevy silverado does not even get close to beatting the F-150 in anithing. The Ford F-150 is the best truck in anything thats why they call it BUILT FORD TOUGH.
