Realistically, I'm not sure I would recommend it. It's neither great nor totally subpar. Just meh.
After 6 months of ownership it feels like my previous two trucks (Toyota Tundra and Chevy Avalanche) were a better built vehicles. There is a brake recall regarding the master cylinder that is nearly a year old that Ford does not have a fix for yet.
It is easy to tell that Ford is only concerned with getting these trucks manufactured as fast as they can to maintain market share without a huge concern for quality.
2013 Ford F150Donald - Manvel, TX04/22/2015
I have loved this truck since the day I bought it. The ride is incredibly smooth. Shifts smooth, soft suspension, perfect handling. Lots of power in the V8 5.0 model. Very quick for a truck and I haven't found anything it won't tow. Most comfortable ride I've ever had towing or not. Great job Ford.
Versatile, comfortable and reliable truck
2012 Ford F150Glenn Carvin - Capistrano Beach, CA08/31/2015
I bought this truck because I needed the power to pull an 8500 pound trailer. The Ecoboost turbo handles it with ease. Decent everyday mileage for a pickup, 17.5 (with stringent Calif smog equipment). Smooth and quiet ride. Even smoother when towing. Nice features. Only drawback seems to be an occasional hard downshift at very low speeds, like going over speed bumps in parking lots. But it has over 100k miles, so stuff happens. Overall, very happy with it.
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
