I just turned 19, and my mom and dad bought me this truck 4 months ago after I flipped and totaled my '02 4-door Ranger Edge Plus. My mom has a 4.6, and I wasn't expecting my 5.4 to have that much more power. I was wrong. It is listed as having 260 HP, but I believe it has more. I have had some truck experts I know that say it pushes almost 300. The gas mileage is low, but considering the size of the engine, it is rather good. It gets much better mileage than my girlfriend's Avalanche. The body style is great, interior is also very stylish (do not get the leather, as it tears easier), no need for 4WD (I didn't need it, and I get through mud holes fine), it is a great, comfortable ride.
5.4L V8 that pushes more than said. Great towing capabilities. So powerful I haven't seen a use for 4WD. Extremely comfortable. Captain chairs. Great 6-cd changer and speakers. Tons of room. Great looking truck. (Mine's Emerald green with tan interior). Friends love it.
