Used Car: 2010 Ford F-150 Review
With one of the highest towing capacities in the class and a high-quality interior, the 2010 Ford F-150 is a great choice for anyone shopping for a 2010 full-size pickup.
The 2010 Ford F-150 is ranked:
Reviewers said the 2010 Ford F-150 had a smooth ride that is comfortable over bumps and generally feels solidly-constructed. They reported that it handles well and is easy to drive. An off-road performance variant, the SVT Raptor, debuted in 2010. The F-150 was offered with two V8 engines, and most reviewers said that either engine provides sufficient power. However, some mentioned that the F-150, even with the most powerful 5.4-liter V8, isn’t as fast or powerful as rivals like the 2010 Toyota Tundra. Still, the F-150 has one of the highest towing capacities in the class, at 11,300 pounds, and reviewers said that heavy trailers don’t make the F-150 feel overly strained. Two- or four-wheel drive were offered on the 2010 F-150. A two-wheel drive F-150 with the smaller V8 and six-speed automatic achieve 15/21 mpg city/highway, which is average for the class.
Reviewers praised the F-150 for its upscale cabin, and said that everything is solidly built with materials that some likened to what you'd see in a luxury car. The regular cab F-150 has seats for up to three people, while Super Cab (extended) and SuperCrew cabs can seat up to six people. Reviewers reported that the front seats are comfortable and supportive. Few reviewers commented on the Super Cab’s back seats, but most said those in the SuperCrew offer ample comfort and space. Like most full-size trucks, the base XL trim comes with few notable standard features. Features that were optional or offered on upper trims when it was new included power windows, locks and mirrors, satellite radio, a 10-speaker Sony stereo, Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, leather seats, heated and power-adjustable front bucket seats, satellite radio, navigation and a backup camera. Ford also offered unique features for businesses like Tool Link, Cable Lock and Crew Chief.
The 2010 F-150 has one of the highest safety scores in the class.
Other Trucks to Consider
The 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 was well-liked by reviewers for its comfortable ride and potent engines. Although it can’t tow as much as the F-150, most reviewers said the Sierra and the similar Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are worthy of consideration by any full-size pickup buyer.
Reviewers liked the 2010 Dodge Ram 1500’s refined, comfortable ride, which some said is one of the best in the class. They also liked its opulent interior and powerful available Hemi V8.
