The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Ford F-150 is a solid truck that is due for its 2009 model makeover, but it’s good enough that it may be all the truck you need or want. The 2008 GMC Sierra isn’t the most macho-looking of the full-size trucks, but it’s one of the easiest to live with.
