Model Overview:

The Ford F-150 is the star of the long-running F-Series line, which stretches back to the post-World War II era, and millions of F-150s have been sold in that time. Originally conceived as a rugged, no-frills workhorse, the Ford F-150 has since morphed into a well-appointed, versatile rig with numerous trim levels that serve a wide range of shoppers, including weekend warriors who need room for the family and the occasional trip to the hardware store.

The full-size pickup segment is so competitive these days that it's hard to pick a clear favorite. But new or used, the F-150 is a great choice, with recent models offering cutting-edge features like turbocharged engines and the MyFord Touch electronics interface. Thanks to the Ford F-150's countless configurations and incredible popularity, you're almost guaranteed to find one that meets your needs.

  • Still Going after all these miles.. - 2009 Ford F-150
    By -

    I bought my 2009 F150 XLT JAN.2011. 57000 MILES..UNTOUCHED..!!! I happen to be on the lot,when the older man brought it in to sale.. I had been waiting on the dealership to find me a particular dodge truck I thought I wanted.. After driving the dodge overbite I returned it.too claustrophobic.. No leg room. There it was coming out of their carwash..I ask how about that one.. But thats a Ford..??? Salesman replied.. Dodge is out I replied no leg room.. We just got it in... Dont care,is it for sale or not..??? He would check.. Came Back not yet.. Ok..Im headed couple blocks down to Ford dealership. Thanks.. As I pulled into ford the owner of preffered auto called me back to his dealership.He said 23. I said 16.5 He said 19.2 I replied 17 We landed on 17.5.. 290000 miles later.. Normal fluid change intervals by the book and tune ups 3sets of brake pads and tires.. Still has original battery in it.. Dont use any oil shifts smoother than a new one.. 4.6 V8 6 speed auto O/D.. Towed a 8500 lb. Boat to Orlando after I drove to Milwaukee and picked it up.. Only thing tired on this truck is me..

  • F150 XLT 4x4 Extended cab - 1999 Ford F-150

    Bought this as a one owner back in 2010, has been and still is a great truck in mechanical excellent condition, have replaced several parts as it is 20 years old, 175,000 miles. I do have it for sale as had a good deal come up on a 2008 F150. Only thing with it now is that heater core went out 1 week after purchase of new one! And the typical snowbelt rust, I added remote start and it starts right off at -40 temps. Very reliable vehicle, want intending to even sell til a relative offered me his 2O08 for upgrade.

  • 2004 F150 4x4 with the 5.4 - 2004 Ford F-150

    I bought this truck in 2010 and it had 39000 miles on it. Since that time I have kept oil chgd with 5w20. Installed Kn cold air intake, Superchip, and the Rancho quickly lift Rs9000 on all 4 corners. Does quite well. Yes it has the noise from canphassers but it dont bother me. Currently has 120000 miles and still going strong. Just cut the alternator a month ago and replaced the driver rear oil seal on axle. Did myself and out the Ford gunk back in the pumpkin and no issues. It has been awsome truck. I pulled a loaded comptroller 70 miles with no issues. Best truck in road. Oh at 65000 i had the spark plugs Chad only cost 75.00 as I bought plugs for 14.00 a piece. Went with champion one piece plugs and have good power with them.

  • In the shop - 2013 Ford F-150

    My F150 ecoboost has been nothing but a mechanical debacle. Ive had it in the shop more times than I can count with very costly repairs. I dont go off roading it doesnt pull anything and imbolder and pretty mild on the pedal. I also do regular tuneup oil changes with synthetic etc. Although it performs well (when it runs ) ill never buy an ecoboost again...Ford had really disappointed me with there reliability.....

  • love my f-150 - 2015 Ford F-150
    By -

    well like many conscientious shoppers that do their research before they buy something that costs a lot of money. I have approximately 10k miles on it and so far not one problem! the 5.0 is very responsive and I am averaging 19mpg in mixed driving. on a long 600 mile trip I averaged 21mpg @70mph.i pull a 21ft camper that weighs about 5000 lbs. loaded and it pulls it with no problem averaging about 15mpg doing 65mph. the transmission shifts very smoothly a lot smoother than my previous Toyota Tacoma did. I recently had a test of the brakes when it was raining and a dog ran out in front of me and I slammed on the brakes. the abs worked wonderfully and I am happy to say that the dog will live to see another day because of that wonderful safety feature! the ride is pretty good for a truck maybe not lexus like but very good on a long trip. I love the backup camera and the parking sensors they have saved me a couple of times already. and hitching up my camper is nice once you get the hang of it. the a/c will run you out of it even when its 100 degrees outside. I love the oil monitoring system and even though the dealer wants me to come in every 5000 miles for an oil change I find that I can comfortably go 7500 miles using full synthetic oil. all in all I like my f-150 and plan on keeping it for many years. we will see about the long term reliability and hopefully this truck will last 200 or maybe even 300k miles? I have been noticing that I see far more older ford trucks on the road than I do of chevy or dodge. I recently saw an old guy driving what must have been a 1969 ford f-100 ranger it was a little rusty but it was still running great. says a lot about ford products. just my ho of course!

  • Pig with Lip Stick! - 2015 Ford F-150

    I bought a Lariat almost fully loaded FX4 package, 4x4, LED headlights, Heavy Tow Package, deployable running boards (love that feature), box side steps (handy), tail gate step, and all the LED lights around the perimeter of the truck (have helped me a great deal when working at night.) I came from a BMW 530i Sport, so I actually enjoy the stiffer suspension. The only reason I would say its a little too stiff is the rear end can jump over large bumps. If you tow or load the bed then the suspension works perfect. I have towed 5500 lbs and the truck can pull like a train you wont even know you have a load being towed. I bought the truck because I am starting a new business and cant afford the time to go to a repair shop even if its warrantied. In the first 2000 miles: the 1. Driver side mirror shakes above 45 MPH, the glass jiggles in the wind while the passenger side is firm. 2. Started hearing a bearing noise from the front end and getting vibrations. 3. Transmission slams into 1st gear, almost feels like the car behind bumped you. 4. Passenger side deployable running board makes a whining noise, driver side does not make the same noise. Took to the dealer. Dealer replaced driver hub bearing, and 4x4 actuator. LESS THAN 5000 miles. Re-program transmission computer, transmission shifts better, but still bumps intermittent. All other complaints were said to be normal, LOL, even when one side does not have a shaky mirror and one side the deployable running board is smooth quiet. This is what you will be dealing with if you buy one of these seducing trucks. Fuel mileage is poor, 16.3MPG driving like a gentle giant. Highway mileage is 25MPG cruising steady below 60MPH, if you drive above 65MPH you will average 16-18 MPG, at least I do in my truck. I do not have confidence in reliability long term. I am also tired of lazy warranty techs saying everything is OK, when it is not OK. If you love pigs with lipstick then this is the truck for you!

  • Perfection for Ford - 2011 Ford F-150

    I just pray my next truck is as good as this one has been for the past 5 years. I never had a vehicle that did not need constant maintenance trips to the dealership. I hate to trade it in but....
