With ten trim levels on tap, the 2010 Ford F-150 is bound to offer a standard features list that appeals to you. Sticker prices for some of the F-150 models may seem a bit high, but the value is undeniable thanks to Ford’s recent improvements in its features loadouts.

The 2010 Ford F-150 XL, the lowest trim level available, is designed as a fleet work vehicle, and accordingly comes equipped with little besides a radio and air-conditioning. The 2010 Ford F-150 STX is very similar, but it gets a CD player in addition to the radio tuner. Moving up to the Ford F-150 XLT, where most consumers will start shopping, brings a significant features increase, as Edmunds reports that you’ll get “cruise control and full power accessories” with this trim. Higher trims add ever-more features, including Ford’s superb SYNC system, which Cars.com describes as a “voice-activated multimedia system [that] is available with 911 Assist, a new service similar to GM’s OnStar.” Kelley Blue Book lists one of the newer standard features as the MyKey “programmable vehicle key [that] is made standard on all models except the base XL” and allows parents to set speed and volume limits on the F-150 for when their kids are behind the wheel.

Leading the way on the Ford F-150’s options list is a top-notch navigation system that gets rave reviews in articles read by TheCarConnection.com. Cars.com writes that the nav system “uses an 8-inch touch-screen that can show real-time traffic and gas prices for nearby stations when teamed with Sirius Travel Link.” Kelley Blue Book looks to the rear of the F-150, where they find an “integral tailgate step that makes clambering into the box easy” and a “stowable bed extender” that gets “high marks” from reviewers there. Ford clearly hasn’t lost sight of their commercial audience either, as Edmunds discovers the availability of “Work Solutions options [that] include an in-dash computer with Internet access, a Midbox storage system (a lockable compartment located between the cab and bed) and a ‘Tool Link’ system (which allows one to keep tabs on tools stored in the truck’s box via radio-frequency tracking.”

Conclusion

The 2010 Ford F-150 digs ever deeper into the high-tech toolbox, delivering tremendous value with its assortment of creature comforts and usable worksite features.

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.
