It's not an immediately apparent problem in dry Southern California, but our long-term 2015 Ford F-150 could use grippier pedals for when the ground gets moist.

  • You wonder why many people don't buy American? Not all American cars are bad, some are great, but this is all too common in products from domestic automakers. This isn't a cheap truck either! It probably goes for over $40k!

    That's very interesting considering my Ram 1500 has a nice set of rubber pedals that so far have been grippy in the Northern BC winter.

    Damned if you do...damned if you don't. I remember reading one of the other car reviews where people were complaining about the rubber pads that were continuously popping off and wearing out. It's a trade off. Rubber pads grip better, but they eventually wear through (I know I've gone through many sets on vehicles I've owned...although more the gas pedal & clutch pedal more than the brake) and pop off. Cast Plastic lasts longer and is more durable, but may be a bit slick when wet.
  • Ford always says how their trucks are designed to work. Knobs and switches are larger so they're easier to use with gloves. The steering wheel designed to be held at the 6:00 position so you will know when the wheels are straight when backing trailers. They even said they kept the old school buttons for the keyless entry touch pad on the door because the new touch sensitive design wouldn't work when caked up with mud or while wearing work gloves. So it's strange that the pedals are slippery when wet. I would think they would've though of slick muddy boots when designing the pedals which look like a carry over part from several generations of Fords.
