Product Reviews

Welcome to Consumer Reports.

We’re so glad to have you as a member. You now have access to benefits that can help you choose right, be safe and stay informed.
The F-150's handling is sound and the cabin is roomy, but the ride isn't that good and the noisy engine strains under acceleration. Uncomfortable seats further detract from the driving experience. Electronic stability control (ESC), full-time four-wheel drive and curtain airbags are all lacking. (Only the Harley-Davidson version has AWD.)
