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.
Great truck! Ford hit a home run
2016 Ford F150Phillip Green - Greenbrier, TN08/08/2016
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.
F150 Raptor; Beautiful and tough rolled into one!
2014 Ford F150Jake Froehle - Dupont, WA01/16/2017
All the capabilities of a standard f150 with additional perks that other trucks do not have. Wider wheel base provides stability off road during aggressive turns. The 6.2L engine is plenty of power to get you up to 60...or 80... as quickly as you need to enter the freeway. Interior is unmatched with the two tone leather, hands free functionality, sun roof, sliding rear glass, and more amenities than I need but love having. Very capable off road and an absolute blast to drive. Most miles are highway but the vehicle is very smooth on pavement and surprisingly quiet despite the 35 inch all terrain tire. Very consistent gas mileage averaging about 13+ combined since I bought 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.)!
