Expert Quotes:

The Raptor's 6.2-liter V8 produces a muscle-car rumble while accelerating, and it never fully quiets down on the highway.
ConsumerGuide

On the road, the 5.0 purrs along serenely and quietly...Forward progress is accompanied by a powerful V8 exhaust note that's a well-tuned blend of throaty intake honk and exhaust growl.
Edmunds' InsideLine

extremely stiff, fully-boxed frame
Autoblog

Plenty of room on comfortable, supportive seats.
ConsumerGuide


Beginning several years ago, Ford made a major investment in its interiors, and the results have been impressive. The taller, more upright instrument panel that was introduced for 2009 is at once more functional, more upscale, and more befitting of the F-150's macho exterior. Trims and materials have been upgraded significantly.

The 2011 Ford F-150 has ample room for four occupants in every cab configuration, and you could, theoretically, squeeze six in tight if you get one of the SuperCrew models. Front seats are both amply proportioned and supportive, while the back seats in the F-150 don't have the too-upright position that's common in other models.

As a pickup truck, versatility and utility is the F-150's primary reason for being, and the Ford F-150 doesn't disappoint in the cargo category. Likewise, inside some F-150 trims come with a lockable center console good for large items like laptops or small briefcases—or even file folders—while there are plenty of smaller storage cubbies, for notebooks, smartphones, sunglasses, tools, and the like.

Ford has made huge strides in terms of interior quality, and although the materials aren't free of imperfections they are well ahead of what consumers are used to from Ford. Otherwise, however, build quality is tight.

The F-150's cabin is superbly quiet and refined, although in some models—especially those with the new V-8s—engine noise can be a bit much, depending on your expectations. Ride quality, as is typical, can be quite firm and jittery in some models.

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford F-150 is exceptionally refined inside, with excellent materials and good seating comfort.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
