Our flagship Web site,, took a look at the 2010 Ford F-150 recently, and here's what our expert reviewers had to say about the truck.

Overall, our experts rate the truck as an eight out of 10. We like the F-150's quiet cabin and interior refinement, along with the truck's towing and handling capability. Dislikes? Boring styling, flabby ride quality, and poor fuel economy.

"From the outside, the 2010 Ford F-150 looks big, strong, and macho from just about any angle. Along the sides, a classy looking undercut defines the wheel wells, while in back the tailgate has been made a little more aerodynamic, with an integrated spoiler and character lines," writes our colleague Bengt Halvorson.

No V-6 engines are available on the current F-150, but there are three available V-8s: a 4.6-liter two-valve V-8 that makes that 248 horsepower, a three-valve 4.6-liter V-8 that makes 292 horsepower, or a three-valve 5.4-liter V-8. The two-valve V-8 is matched to a four-speed automatic, while the others are matched to a six-speed automatic.

There is also the high-performance SVT Raptor, which was initially offered with the 5.4-liter V-8 before being replaced with a 6.2-liter V-8.

When it comes to on road dynamics, Halvorson writes, "On the road, there’s no way you’re going to confuse the ride and handling of the 2010 Ford F-150 with that of a sports coupe—or even that of a sedan—but the F-150 handles relatively well for a pickup. Steering has been improved over previous versions, and the seats afford a good forward view along with good long-distance comfort."

The bottom line, according to Halvorson?

"The 2010 Ford F-150 leads the light-duty full-size pickup class for serious truck buyers, though ride and handling are still not strengths," he says.
