This is one of the first modern SUVs and is built like a big, tall car. F150, correct me if I am wrong, have separate chassis (like ladder chassis) underneath, in other words, they are probably built like traditional trucks. I might be wrong.

I meant more performance-wise than chassis-wise.. You're right the first AMG ML55 (or maybe even G55) probably deserves that credit instead. But also this car was a sleeper and despite not having an M badge it beat the AMG. It weighed about the same as a Lightning and I brought this up because on the Lightning page we can see that it has been compared to this car
