2011 F-150 Is Awesome
2011 Ford F250Tim - Sacramento, CA09/16/2012
I recently purchased the 2 door cab, extended bed, Ford F-150. I must say, it is a wonderful truck. The 5L v8 is powerful, and easy to work on. The interior is comfortable even for me standing at 6'6". The brakes are really crazy responsive, it took some getting use to. The exterior looks really cool, it's a nice blend of style and utility. I've been avg. between 16 and 17 mpg, which isn't too bad for a truck. If you need a truck, you wont go wrong with this one.
Love my F250!
2011 Ford F250Deer Hunter - Tulsa, OK10/01/2012
I was looking for a Ford crew cab (4 door) with an 8 foot box with plenty of room for my ATV and gear. I also tow a boat in the summer and a large box trailer to summer camp for my sons Boy Scouts troop.
There are NOT a lot of used trucks with a crew cab AND the 8' bed. They mainly are available in the F250 which is a little overkill for my needs but I was game. I found my F250 out of state on Carmax.com and had it delivered to my local dealer. I was hooked. My XLT model also has 4X4 so that was an added bonus. The 6.2L gas motor gets 12-14 MPG with 100% real gas, which is almost as good as the 5.4 Triton that was in my old F150. The 6 speed transmission also contributes to the better gas mileage. I personally chose gas over diesel just for the cheaper repair costs. I have already used the 4X4 to get my tractor unstuck in a mud hole. It has great torque! The ride is a little on the stiff side for just normal street driving but the interior is comfortable. The AC works great especially since we just had a HOT summer here in Oklahoma. It has a long wheelbase whch can be a bit tricky to park in a small lot but that is a minor inconvience.
The F250 is not just a work truck, it makes a great private vehicle.
A truck can offer the perfect blend of utility and power. The sturdy truck bed carries all the tools needed to get a tough job done, and the engine and its torque can help tow all the equipment. With that in mind, different trucks have different towing options. Whether it’s towing for work or the family vacation, here are seven used trucks that excel at pulling their weight.
