This is my second F150 and Ford has hit a home run. The look & ride is fantastic. I have the 2.7 v6 ecoboost & it feels like more power than my 97 v8 plus great gas mileage. The fit & finish is top notch. I know they have had some problems with Sync, but has worked great so far. I have never owned a GM or Dodge pickup to compare to so I don't know about them. But the gains in horsepower, towing, capacity, and MPG from the aluminum body are amazing.
Solid truck with inexpensive gas option
