Absolutely solid build quality. Very
smooth ride for a truck; by my
experience it rides better than a
Maxima but not as smooth as a Deville,
with much better handling than a 2002
Expedition. The V-8 is powerful and
amazingly quiet until you punch the
pedal, then it lets loose a smooth
growl and pours power to the pavement.
Haven't towed anything with it yet,
but believe it should handle most
boats fine. Seating is comfortable,
leather feels smooth yet tough enough
to hold up well - heated seats have 2
power levels. If you give this truck a
good, detailed visual inspection and
compare build quality to any domestic,
you will see that it rocks.
Embarrassing, but true.
Smooth, quiet ride in a capable truck -
best blend of comfort and utility on
the market today. Bed sides are higher
than past models - better capacity.
Sound system is clear with good
frequency response from bass to
treble. Sunroof and rolldown rear
window will give a near-convertible
Door handle impedes access to power
window controls. Air conditioning
controls feel imprecise - why not
electronic/auto control? Pay extra for
the TRD offroad upgrade to get
smaller, less attractive 16" wheels -
Ford's 18" wheels look better on a
4X4. Should have gone with stability
package over TRD
