2013 STX 4x4 5.0 decor - the search ends!
Just picked up a brand new 2013 STX 4x4 in flame blue (pics pending)
Here are my impressions so far:
Power- 5.0 is amazing. Coming from a 2004 4.6 2v f-150 sts and a 97 5.4 expedition with 200k, it was a huge improvement. The thing sounds like sex too.
Features - I realize i only got an STX, but it is still rather nicely equipped. My 04 STX had manual mirrors for gods sake. This has power everything and the sync is very fun. The decor package is a great value
Quality of build - Truck handles amazing, braking feels great, all in all rather solid.
Rear seat- again my own fault for going supercab, and maybe my immagination, but my rear seat of my '04 stx felt a bit bigger. I couldn't budget the crewcab, and even if i could I am not a fan of 5.5 beds OR long trucks.
Open diff - yep this one sucks. I asked about it and almost walked away when i found out it was open diff. My 04 limited slip was great for snow. A locking diff would have been great too, but open diff makes me worried. We will see next winter in Wisconsin.
Paid 27,900 before TTL and after trade in of expy with 200k. They were gonna only give me 500, but had to fight tooth and nail to get $1500 for it. The truck was falling apart so no big loss. How did I do compared to other STX owners?
Thanks for reading!
