1st Impression on New F-150

While Christmas shopping at the King Of Prussia Mall there was a new F-150 Platinum series truck on the floor. I sat it the truck and it had to be the nicest pickup I have ever been in. The running boards fold under the body when not in use and the tailgate had a step with a grab bar. I though that was pretty cool.

However, the price was 55k Ouch.

I rode in a friends new F150 during deer season. I was impressed by the room in it, and especially the back seat leg room. Nice truck.

Your never to old to learn something stupid

I too rode in my buddies during deer camp, and the room in the cab between my 06 and his 13 is very noticeable. Pretty much same truck, but his is bigger.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: 1st Impression on New F-150

$55K for a pickup truck? No thanks!

My '03 F150 has vinyl seats(bench and back), manual locks, manual windows, and had a factory AM/FM Cassette deck (I replaced with CD/USB capable radio). The only thing automatic on it is the transmission, of which I'd prefer a standard there too.
I don't really need, nor care for, all the bells and whistles that they've been putting into trucks the last 15-20 years.
My last three trucks were all base models, as will be the next one.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Re: 1st Impression on New F-150

The 150 is a pretty vehicle but I wouldn't call it a truck. FORD dumbed down the 150 years ago to appeal to the ladies and suburban cowboys.
You can't put a plow on them anymore and they won't haul their weight in reclaimed hay.

I love FORD trucks and they are all we buy for work but to use for any type work at all you need a 250 or better.
JMO, but I think the day FORD stops giving 0% financing on the 150 they will not sell nearly as many.
You can buy a lot of power for 55K, just not in the 150.
