Pros: looks, engine, interior room Cons: third door on one side only, transmission questionable for towing, rough ride
I purchased a new ford F150 extended cab with the 4.8L triton V8. I use it to tow a ski boat on the weekends and I have had problems with the automatic transmission. I spoke with another Ford owner who had the same problems. he purchased an F350 with the triton V10 and has not had any problems with the transmission since. Beyond that, the truck has performed great. The ride can be bumpy at times but I will buy another ford when it comes time to purchase a new truck.
