The Lariat trim is really sharp. The woodgrain trim, leather captains chairs, and the console shifter really set this truck apart from the lower trim lines. Love the tan leather/dash with silver, black, and woodgrain accents. XLTs are too plain IMO.
We had a 1993 Ford F-150 in the family for 15 years. It was a rolling legend. It became a part of the family, and we had many more good experiences with it then bad. Hopefully the 2010 will live up to the legacy of the 1993.
Ive driven Silverados and recently a 2011 Ram and the Ford's driving position is much better in my opinion. In the Ford you seem to sit up higher and you have a more commanding feel while driving. Visability is awesome with the optional back-up camer
This truck handles extremely well for a pickup of its size. It really feels tight and its fairly nimble as well. Its really enjoyable to drive, much improved over the 93 F-150. Feels like a big car around town and holds its line very well on highways.
I know this isnt anything impressive compared to some vehicles these days, but I am overall impressed with the fuel economy Im getting from the 5.4L V8. I usually average about 17.5 MPG, not bad at all for a big V8. I personally expected much worse MPG.
