i own a 2006 lariat supercrew 4x4 and i have to say i am in love. i drove 1500 chevy's my whole life and 3 years ago i bought a superduty 250 lariet 4x4 which was nice, but a little more truck then i needed. i then bought my current truck, 06 supercrew lariat 4x4 and what an awesome vehicle. i have a 6 acre property which i have cut down 100' trees and drug them whole to the rear of my property with this truck. i pull a trailer with over 2 tons of stone no problem, i have a light duty boss snow plow to keep the driveway clear. an 18 wheeler delivered it by hand truck and when it went to leave it went off my driveway and into the grass and got stuck. i pulled out a chain, put the truck in 4 wheel low and slowly creeped and yanked it out. a duelly with a tree chipper also got stuck on my property and i pulled out the truck and chipper with ease. this truck does it all and with great style and grace. i drive this truck 50 highway miles a day to work. its great on the highway, and ready for any project you can dish out. buy this truck with confidence!!!! you cant stop it!

I know I bought more truck than was needed, but being a single parent I needed unquestioned dependability. I purchased the vehicle brand new with 4 miles on it back in 2006. Snow, Rain, Tornados, my truck has never let me down. I highly recommend it for dependability. I know the exterior is a little on the square side, but that is ok. The bed of the truck has really come in handy. So far anything I have needed to move I have been able to do it in my trusty F150.

FX4 - Luxury Truck at its BEST!

Bought 2006 FX4 new and drove it for over 5 years. Changed the oil when due, new wipers, and had Ford check it out once a year. The only thing I ever had to have done was a new battery (which was still working fine when I changed it after 5 years -- but being a woman I didn't want to ever worry about it just going so changed it early.) After driving all different makes - no other comes close to the Ford F150 - FX4 - it had the best pick-up, best comfort, best AC hands down!!! (Living in South Florida I put that to the test!)

best truck by far

by from Orange Co, Va on December 10, 2008

i can go anywhere-tow anything-carry everyone, what else is necessary? if someone is looking for a good reliable vehicle that plays hard and looks great, the F150 FX4 supercrew is the truck.

ok this is my second f150 i have owned a 2006 with the 5.4. first off i am a mechanic by trade the spark plug problem they do have is a easy fix if a shop tells you 1000 dollars to do a tune up keep on driving to a new shop. very powerful and very reliable dont let the spark plug problem scare you from this truck some people just dont know about vehicles and get taken for a loop.

I am thoroughly impressed with this truck. My last Tundra was totalled in an accident a couple of weeks ago. I decided to buy my current '06 F-150 because of the low miles (62k), the lift kit that was already installed, and the tow pack. This truck is extemely stout and solid. I have put 2,000 miles on it in a little over a week alone and I am blown away at the way this truck drives and tows. I believe that I can count on this truck to take care of me and my needs for many years and miles to come.

I have owned 2 F-150's - a 2000 and the 2006 I have right now. I absolutely love this truck - it's reliable, decent on gas (mine is a V6 and has excellent highway mileage for a truck), offers a super-smooth ride, and is stylish. It's also just small enough to be convenient and just large enough to not have to worry about obstacles on the road. It handles in most conditions, and is just a great vehicle. I will drive this pickup until it retires! I'm so happy with it.

Purchased this truck in Dec '05 w/ Family Plan incentive and gave $6K off sticker. Came fully equipped and comparable to same year Lincoln Mark LT. I'd have to say that I've lost nothing in going with the Ford version. Fit/finish and quality mirror the Mark LT and for thousands less. Handling is fantastic for a half ton, due in part to outboard mounted rear shocks. Corners like a sedan and the cabin is equally as quiet. At times, I have to convince myself I'm still in a pickup. 5.4L V8 w/ 3.73 rear end is rated 300hp but feels more like 250...acceleration is pretty timid from a stop and only modest at highway speeds. On the flip side, once you get a load in the bed or on the hitch everything settles in and the truck seems to perform much better. Bottom line, engineered to work, not to be a grocery getter. My observed fuel econmy is 12/16 and averages out around mid 13s. Interior layout is intuitive and roomy, leather seats are comfortable, gauges easy to see. Power roof/rear window are nice additions, esp for supercrew. Lots of cheap plastic on dash, but little elsewhere. Wood trim is fairly realistic looking. Go with premium sound if you can...subwoofer and satellite radio help pass the time on long drives. Reliability has been good. Taken in for one factory recall, and for rubber trim around window breaking loose. Gaps in seams along panels and bumpers are not entirely even and are easily noted with the naked eye. Have observed this on several local models as well, so could be engineered. Overall, this is an above average truck with all the benefits of a half ton and few of the drawbacks. Arguably the best F150 to date, and should remain America's best selling vehicle through the next major redesign.

I purchased an '06 F-150 FX4 in the spring of '08! It was the first truck I have ever purchased. It's loaded w/captain seats, leather, moonroof, 6 disc. What an amazing truck!!! Style and looks alone beat Silverado hands down. Performance is outstanding. I would recommend to all!

Excellent for hauling large loads

by from Sanford NC on June 14, 2006

pulls a 7,400 lb 25 ft. boat without a hickup. Great hauler without the need to move up to a F-250. 5.4L motor with 3.73 rear gears and sturdy frame platform definately "git R done"
