The Truck has every single bell and whistle on it. Its a very nice truck. Pros - Crew cab is roomy and spacious. King Ranch edition, Con's - Navigation, Gas milage, and Seats Explanations of Con's Navigation is a big one - ( unable to program on the fly regardless if your passenger is doing it while your driving ( Vehicle must be stopped), Navigation CD is from 07 and is $200 for an update CD ( Tom Tom is still a cheaper route ). The voice constantly talks... and tells you to turn right when the screen says left.... or vise versa... Gas Mileage - I traded in an Extended cab 4x4 GMC for the room of a Crew Cab....It was 4x4 and had the 5.3l engine. It got better performance on gas mileage in the city than the Ford dose on the highway. Remember the Ford is 2wd and the GMC was 4x4. The acceleration for lane changes and get up and go is also less as well with the Ford. Seats- The leather is so nice and pretty but the slightest thing will scratch it...Rivets on your jeans, the Wrangler tag on the back pocket etc.....its not deep just shows up quickly..
I've had a lot of problems and looking online, so have others. problems with the brakes, upper control arms (having to be replaced again), front hubs had to be replaced, leaking power steering hose, and now exhaust manifold has to be removed/repaired. I only drive 5k miles a year, except for one year when I drove it for about 20k. For a 4x4 truck "Ford" tough, this thing is anything but tough. And I rarely go off road. This truck has been babied for the most part with no rough treatment. Seriously considering getting rid of it for another brand. I used to be a Ford man, but after this truck, I'd have to think long and hard before I buy another Ford product. Very disappointed.
This is the third pickup truck I've owned and my fourth vehicle over the course of my driving life. My prior two trucks were 4x4 Dodge Rams. And, while I got good service out of my Ram trucks (12+ years on each), I was dead set that I was going to buy a Ford this time on matter of principle, if for no other reason that Ford refused to take the government bailout. I like my 2007 Ford F150 XLT SuperCrew 4x4. The handling is much improved over my 1998 Dodge. Driving the F150 is reminiscent of the handling of a Crown Victoria, smooth and easy. I don't get that feeling of the vehicle being top-heavy and awkward, compared with the stiffer suspension and ride of my other trucks. While I still feel like I have ample off-road clearance under the truck and chassis, I don't feel like I sit so high as to make my handling cumbersom. The cabin is spacious in both the front and back seats. I specifically bought a SuperCrew so my son would have plenty of leg room, as he starts into middle and high school, especially since there was no appreciable difference in price between it and a club cab model. My horsepower seems to be consistent all the way through the ranges when I need to move, unlike the common lags of past vehicles I've driven. While I found a few things that needed to be fixed, when I first bought my F150 from CarMax, I am still happy with it. CarMax provides a 30 day guarantee to replace or repair anything wrong with the vehicle. I am pleased to say that they honored that agreement with me. This truck was my fourth vehicle purchase from CarMax and my wife and I are preparing to buy our fifth from them that is already being shipped in from another state.
