- Very comfortable, nice performance and ride. I Love it!
- Should have rear sensors as standard equipment.
After about a month of ownership, this truck has impressed me. Very comfortable to drive, strong performance and lots of room. It really is nicer than a pickup but still has a nice size bed for things. Took it camping with the family and dog and we had plenty of room for everything, which we did not have in our Ford Explorer. I have the LT model and I am quite happy I got that - with the power leather seats, DVD player and other niceties make this a pleasure to drive. I got the front windows tinted and sitting in traffic in 100 degree heat is quite confortable while listening to my XM radio (and I'm definitely keeping that too). The gas mileage isn't good, but certainly not as bad as I had feared. On the highway I actually got over 20, and 15-16 around town (so far at least). At first I thought the steering was a little loose compared to other vehicles, but after driving it awhile it actually handles well, and it has that stability control too.
The cons - because of the high bed size, it should include rear sensors as standard equipment. Something that I will add aftermarket though. The parking break is annoyingly in the way it seems. The brakes take some getting used to but they do work well.
