Ford 2008 F150
Pros: The GPS navagation system
Cons: On the old F150 model you could rest your arm on the window. You can't on the new model.Nice truck. Really great interior on the F150 Limited edition. Not very quick off the line but a nice truck. Never had any problems and that's the best thing.
Pros: The FX4 package includes the utimate truck options. Its not a 'one tire wonder' the rear end limited slip is great, it eliminates having to use 4x4 alot.
Cons: In the winter months I have gotten as low as 10mpg (however, this is city and off-road use)
Advice: Buy only the FX4 off road package. Mechanically your talking a totally different vehicle than the regular F150.It's a REAL truck.Interior has tons of room. Truck has a great smooth ride, close to that of a car. Plenty of power. A great feature that I have never seen before is that the back windows go completely down. They don't pop out a few inches or are child proof. My dogs love it. Lots of box space for a supercab. With the quadcab you lose most all of the box. Handling of this truck is superb. The brake and gas pedals are adjustable with the touch of a button. Very good factory stereo. However, it loves gas. I gotton up to 18 but also as low as 10mpg. Overall I love this truck.
