Ford F-150 2010 crew cab
Trim Shown: Regular
Freshened in 2009, the F-150 gained standard ESC and a six-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration from the 5.4-liter V8 improved but the engine still sounds coarse. Otherwise, the cabin is very quiet. The revised interior has more comfortable front seats and a very roomy rear seat. Handling is secure and braking performance is vastly improved. The ride remains stiff and jumpy. Built-in controls for trailer braking are handy. There are some neat options, including extendable side steps, a tailgate ladder to ease accessing the bed, and a tailgate assist. Crash-test results are impressive.
