2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab STX 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I've been a Mercedes-Benz and Honda guy for more than 10 years, but I was in the market for a low budget full-size pickup truck. The leasing incentives offered by Ford drew me into the dealership, but in the end I'm also thrilled with the product. It's incredibly comfortable, quiet and easy to drive. What's more, I was surprised with the fuel economy, as I logged 17.2 mpg on only the second tank of driving. I wouldn't put much faith in other Ford products, but it's pretty obvious the F-150 is the company's crown jewel, and I will consider another when this lease ends.
I love the vehicle's design inside and out. Moreover, I can't get over how quiet the cabin is; much quieter than my Mercedes ML350. The ride is also softer and more forgiving.
I wish the STX had power windows, but I realized the potential grief of that shortcoming before making the purchase, so I was prepared for any aggravation I might encounter.
