Great, Solid Truck

ReviewI sold an anemic Land Rover as I was tired of the poor mileage and awful reliability and the Ford has been fantastic so far. I have the 5.4 engine for towing and the power is great but even better is that I'm getting 15 city and 18 highway, which, while not amazing in itself is far better than the Rover (13 highway) or the Dodge's (12 highway). That 6 mpg is a 50% increase. The crew cab is fantastic and offers way more back seat room than the Rover and now I can carry dirt bikes in the back which obviously wasn't an option before. The truck can cruise easily at 80-90 and the cabin is extremely quiet.
Best FeaturesThe electronic 4x4 is great. I find my self turning it on while in a snowy town and then off on the wet pavement. The Lariat package with sunroof and power rear window makes for a very cushy truck.
Worst FeaturesBetter stereo options. More sophisticated/ updated dash. Diesel, and not a small one. I'd also like the option of the Lightning engine in this truck.
