2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
After considering the imposts, I found the Ford to have a nicer interior, exterior, and solid build quality. The main reason to purchase at the time was a very nice short lease deal in case I found the truck unacceptable.
Interior build quality. Safety features.
Gas mileage - when the lease is up I will look for a SUV with better gas mileage. I just hope Ford realizes they need to compete.
