Ford improved so many items on this vehicle. The ride and tighter turning radius is fabulous. The V10 is like an electric powerhouse. The 5 speed automatic seems to be improved. I wish the Ford temperature gauges actually told the consumer what the temperatures are in degrees. Reflectors on the towing mirrors are easily damaged with any encounter; need to be relocated. I tow an 8000 lb trailer and it is hard to notice its presence.
The turning radius and ride are fabulous. V10 is really quiet and powerful. The power is good but does not feel as strong as the 362 hp and 467 ft lb of torque the factory suggests.
Reflectors on the towing mirrors are too easily damaged. Need to be relocated. Gauges should be incremented with numbers. Paint scratches too easily. The off road tire option is really a road tire.
