Not bad for a work truck, difficult to maneuver.
2013 Ford F150Jim McLeod - Alexandria, VA03/30/2016
Mixed feelings, really. Good service so far, maneuverability is slightly better than a deuce-and-a-half (which is terrible). Traction is much worse than my last Ford truck (2WD Ranger). You should be over 5'10" to be able to climb into this vehicle (without running boards) or have decent visibility from it.
Returned due to Engine Timing Cover Oil Leak.
2013 Ford F150T K - Fredericksburg, VA04/20/2017
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.
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.)!
