Short & sweet:

Feels like a slightly taller truck
Feels higher end?
Steering controls not as intuitive as 2018 model IMO.
Lake keep assist or whatever it is doesn’t keep you in your lane more so vibrates the steering
Still can’t figure out a proper spot for your mobile device LOL.
Rides much smoother - noticeably smoother!

P.S.
Is there a mute button like the 18”?
What’s the quickest way to switch between source of audio?

I’ve found pressing the physical volume knob is the mute button. There’s like 10 different ways to change the audio source but the quickest for me is pressing the little physical musical note button to the right of the volume knob.

For mute I press the play/pause button just below that musical note button. Also lane assist (XLT 302a) in settings can select "alert" (vibration) and/or "aid" (lane keeping)...works good. And yes coyote...yee ha 😎
