We just bought a Eddie Bauer V6. Traded up from an 02 Sport Trac. It rides so much better than the Sport Trac. We did not get all the goodies but what we got for our money was a very good value. Looking forward in 3 years to getting a 2010 model. It will be here soon.
Seats are very comfortable for long distance. It is very much like a car. It is not noisy. The controls are laid out very well. My wife loves the pedals that adjust to any height. Ford has another winner.
I would have gotten one loaded if there was one available that day. There seems to be a scarcity of V8s also. The dealers need more selection.
