I 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
The 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.
Better 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.
