2005 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)
The 2005 Ford XL V6 is now our Friday night date vehicle. It rides better than the Toyota or Honda cars we have. I love the design and the color. The truck is getting 21 MPG on 2 lane highways at 55 MPH. The gas mileage on the interstate at 70 mph is about 18.5. I am pleased with the truck and I rate it higher than the GMC I traded in.
The big comfortable seats are just great. I have the work truck version and the rubber floor mats make this vehicle very easy to clean after my muddy feet have dirtied it. One of the several reasons I bought this vehicle was to to pull my boat and it does an excellent job.
The bed is 5.5 feet high and so am I. I wish there was a version made so the bed is lower to the ground. Window crank is low and takes what seems like 25 cranks to get it up or down.
