Coming out of a '99 Explorer XLT and going into a '06 Explorer XLT I was worried. I was unhappy with my older one and the ride stunk. The is one amazing truck though I feel like I am driving a car. You can not tell how fast you are going. You can catch yourself doing 80 quickly. The interior has everything right in reach and the material is high end. The door handles are a really big thing when someone gets into it. It took me about a day to get used to it and now I love them. Also, the stick shift on the floor is so much better you have something to rest your hand on!
Stereo, stick shift, grille, third row, heated seats.
Option for automatic climate control and the navigation on the XLT. A lil' more horsepower would be nice for the V6 but it still does move!
