This truck is very impressive. The ride is surprisingly smooth and the 5.0L engine has plenty of power to pull through traffic with ease even fully loaded. Braking is just as quick slowing the truck down to a halt without hesitation. The regular cab has more room behind the seats than it appears allowing me to keep a few tool bags back there with room to spare. The long bed gives you as much room as you'll ever need with an extra deep bed. This is by far the best truck for the money period.
I took a chance on this truck knowing Ford has had reliability issues in the past. My brief experience with this truck, before I returned for a refund only, reinforced this concern. The truck, an EcoBoost 3.5L V6 version, was experiencing significant Engine Timing Cover Oil Leak at only around 40k miles. Online searches turned up many others complaining of the same problem. Also, take this for what it's worth but online searches of the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 F150 turned up a lot of complaints of sudden loss of power on highway under acceleration as well which I found to be pretty alarming. I will admit I was impressed with the acceleration but I never did get close to the advertised MPG stated by Ford even when I was driving conservatively.
This was a pre-owned company truck with 48,000 miles. As expected it showed some normal signs of wear but also signs of good maintenance. Put fresh tires and shocks, wash and polished - good to go! I use it to pull my small travel trailer and have put about 15,000 miles on it with out a problem. Gas mileage when towing is 13-15 (@65-75mph more often 13), solo 18-20 (not often 20 though). Happy with this truck.
