2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD Flareside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I traded in my old V-6 2WD F-150 for the large towing capacity and because 2WD on the ice around here is horrible. My first impression was same truck bigger engine, but as time passed I noticed a lot of little things Ford did to make this truck better than previous models. The mirrors are bigger it has a softer ride it rides higher than previous 4x4 models and it drives like a compact car. I can swing the truck in and park where i couldnt have before. Backing up is easier with the larger mirrors and the added horsepower without the huge loss in fuel economy are huge assets.
Larger mirrors, smooth comfortable braking, the automatic headlights, smooth transition while shifting gears, great towing capacity, interior design and ease of use, rear windows go all the way down-great for the dogs, large back seat, great in off road conditions
Obvious gas mileage, loud warning indicators, maybe an engine block warmer option, step rail needs to be further out
