She's got the massive 4.2 V6 and a 4 speed auto.
Traded my 97 for her 4 years ago today. Needed a bigger truck to cart the grandkids to camp with us.
Although it is a little underpowered with the V6, It has enough power to pull a 6x12 utility trailer with a golf cart on it and a fully loaded bed and 4 people in it and get 16 mpg doing it. Waiting for Ford to come out with a F150 diesel in 2010.

Nice golf cart, but you'll have to change the number from 8 to 99, 17, 16, 26, 6, 21, 38, or 28. :D

I love that color of your Escape and that's a sharp looking truck as well. Planning on doing any extra mods to the F150? Escape?

No Mods, Just keep them running well so they can make it to old age. They will both be paid off within 6 months of each other, so we shall see who gets a new one first. I am holding out till Ford puts a diesel in the F150.

I'd give that new diesel a year or so to mature and get the initial bugs out. But then someone has to be the early adaptor....

I'm on my third first-year Ford.

My 2002 Explorer (all-new that year) was one of the first 10,000 built. My only problem in three years was a DPFE valve that only caused a little engine "misfire" at part-throttle. My dealer fixed it in ten minutes, since they have drive-up service with no appointments.

My 2005 Escape (entirely new electrical system and front-end structure that year) was built on the first day of '05 production. I owned it for three years with no problems.

My 2007 Edge has been totally problem-free so far as well. And although the Fusion is in the third year of production, ours is also problem-free so far.

:D

Sounds good JP, I have yet to buy or own a Ford that proves to be a lemon, but Ford's track record with diesels preceeds the new engine. And yes I know they came from Navistar, but it was a Ford design and spec engine that was provided.
