I have the 5.4 V8, Tow, Moonroof, power
rear window, 6 disk in-dash, and
purchased for 28K. Now at 3500 miles
there are no rattles,squeaks or wind
noise. Alignment is perfect. The ride
is firm. Interior quality is excellent.
The seats have been raised 2-3 inches
from previous models. I am relatively
short (5'7") My feet just touch the
floor. The seats took some getting used
to. Low mounted door arm-rests not
practical due to tall seats. Engine
power is very adequate. I tow a 5,500lb
boat frequently. This truck accelerates
well with or without boat in tow. Truck
does not deserve "suggish" ratings.
Excellent quality and good performance
for the price.
My favorite features are the 5.4 V-8,
Sunroof, and power rear window. In the
Supercab and larger trucks, the old
style manual sliding rear windows were
hard/ dangerous to reach from the
drivers seat. Now they are practical
and safe to use.
Raise the door arm rest or
put back the older style door pull-
handle. The pillar mounted grab-
handle is intrusive. Make more like
the 2000 Expediton models. Transmission
whine very noticeable at lower highway
speeds. (45-60) mph. Ruins otherwise
