Just got this truck after spending the past 5 years driving an Explorer Sport, and I have to say, there's a world of difference. Was challenging finding the PRO-4X in 4wd, but I'm glad I held out for the PRO-4X. Not needing a full size truck, but desiring tough off-rode performance, and comfort, the PRO-4x fits my needs perfectly. The ride is much better than my Explorers, with the 8-way adjustable (and heated) seats being the most comfortable I've experienced personally. I drove 5 hours in it the day I bought it, and never got "tired of the saddle." The Rockford Fosgate sound system is top notch, and the Crew Cab gives me ample room to haul the kids around comfortably.
Utili-trac system. Entire PRO-4x off-road package Bluetooth capabilities.
Gas mileage isn't the best (but no worse than similar size trucks) Temp/Compass feature requires rearview mirror upgrade.
