I have owned mainly imports and was hesitant. I was leaning towards the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander and stopped at Ford dealer at whims notice. The test drive sold me and I bought it that day. First thing I noticed is the styling is beautiful and not overly generic & boring as the Pilot and Highlander. The interior was the same and exuded the same luxury as the RX330 I previously owned. The acceleration was amazing and ride felt confident and supple. There is something about this car that I love over every car I have owned. Hard to explain...it has soul and does not feel like an appliance. I get compliments everywhere I go. I see more and more of them in Atlanta.
SYNC entertainment system, 2nd row fold flat seat w/ a button that utomatically releases them, voice activated navigation system, V6 engine...lots of power, 20" wheels look great, center console storage, comfortable seats, interior lighting (gauges), overall layout of interior
Although it accelerates fast it seems a bit heavy, painted rear bumper seems to go too far in the vehicle and may be prone to scratching when loading, fuel economy improvements (although the utility makes up for it), great windshield view but side visibility a bit hampered due to rake of window
