This is overall a pretty good truck, a little underpowered with the 3.0L but still pretty dependable. The only shortfall is the gas mileage. Stop and go eats gas, and if going 70 on the interstate it gets about 16.5 mpg. A little more room in the cab would help, backseat for kids only. Ride is a little stiff, but put a load on it and it rides great, of course. Just a smaller version of the F-150 with a 3.0L.
Comfortable seat. I'm 5' 9" and it's about perfect except when wearing heavy clothing, the steering wheel gets in the way.
A little more power out of the 3.0 or else make the 4.0 liter standard. Needs a softer ride. Corners nicely and easy to park in the city.
