Comments on the redesigned 2004 Ford F-150 from the Kelley Blue Book editorial team:

"Ford took America's best selling vehicle and made it even better."

"The arrival of the new F-150 may be the most important new vehicle launch in the history of Ford Motor Company; and it looks as though the F-150 team has hit a home run."

"A truck with a brushed aluminum dash, leather seats and a center-console-mounted shifter has no place being called a pickup; this is luxury."

"With new competition from Dodge, Nissan, Toyota and Chevrolet, the F-150's dominance of the full-sized truck market is under full assault. After spending time behind the wheel of the new F-150, we're sure that this newest version has everything it needs to remain King of the Hill."
