Default My new 2011 FX4

I have had my 2011 Sport FX4 "Off Road" for a week now and I have put my typical 500 km (300 mi) on it and I have noticed something very unusual. It doesn't "ride" or "sound" like a truck. I have had a new '84 XL single cab, '97 XLT supercab and '03 XLT FX4 supercab in the past and they all had little their squeeks and rattles in them, but this '11 is soooo tight, it doesn't make a sound. The fit and finish is really remarkable. Even my wife said the same thing last night.

Damn you Canadians still being able to get FX4s!! Welcome to the FRF from the Travelin' PNW Crewman. Ford's fit and finish is tenfold this year compared to even five years ago.

they are not true "FX4s". Its just a Sport Package with the FX4 sticker. it would be the same as sticking an FX4 sticker on your truck Richard

they aren't just a sticker...its a FX4 package

----------

I was kinda wrong....the only difference between the Sport I have and one with FX4 option is the 4.10 LS axle, 16" 5 Y spoke cast aluminum wheels, FX4 decal, Black side step bars, and rear slider. $2500 more wasn't worth it for me.

Bucket seats and all power options too.

2011 FX4 have LS; 2010 FX4 don't.

kind of odd knowing the FX4 ranger is being built right here in Minnesota, but is only sold in Canada.

All options in the FX4 package are available as add ons to the Sport 4x4, including limited slip and 4.10 axle, power options, sliding rear window, bucket seats, Y spoke wheels, etc. Only true difference is the decal.

Didn't know that, I don't pay that much attention to trucks you can get outside the states, cuz frankly, I'm in the States. Thanks for the tidbit

Nice! One of the first things I noticed about my '11 is dash noise on the driver's side. My '07 was totally tight. Oh well... it's not too bad, but I was a bit surprised. Didn't even realise the '07 was tight until I got this one. Maybe by summer all the parts will settle (or get worse lol)

Nice looking truck!

A year ago, my first choice was a 2010 FX4 (Vista Blue)....but didn't find one. Instead, I bought one in a dark grey. Similarly loaded. Currently, have a set of black steelies with studded General Altimax Arctic winter tires.

Thanks funny, I was looking for your Charcoal Grey , but had to settle on "Vista Blue". My second choice was Silver, but they couldn't find that one either. I am liking the Blue now.

Guys at work say I should put a Toronto Maple Leaf sticker in the rear window. That would ruin the truck, don't you think. Maybe I could get that little guy pissing on the Maple Leaf. Hehe.
