Looking to buy a new truck?

Check out Silver Creek -- a pretty cool video of the Michigan Proving Grounds and the new F150.

That was pretty good though as far as the fuel mileage, the Ford is running a 4.6 litre V8 compared to the larger engines in the rest of the line up.

Looks like a nice truck!

I noticed that ommission also! That usually means that they didn't find enough negatives with it to list it in the tests. May have even outperformed the F-150. That being said, I am also a big Ford fan also. My '97 F-150 is still going strong at 190,000 miles and has never let me down.

Me too 02 w/65k miles and I think it's the best riding truck out there and I'm sure the new ones are even better.

My daily driver is a 2007 Silverado that I am very happy with and I've been getting about 16 to 18mpg average but, in those handling tests.... The Ford bested it.
