So my daughter turned 16 and I gave her my truck. I'm not done with my new daily so I've been driving my Vette. I had to go to Home Depot today so I borrowed my bosses 2018 F-150. I gotta say, I was pretty impressed. It's fully loaded and a damn nice truck. I didnt care for the seats but I also didn't adjust it to fit me, I don't move things like that when borrowing a truck or car. It surprised me with it's acceleration. I hated the auto stop so I turned that off. Otherwise I really liked it. And the most amazing part to me was the gas mileage. 21 mpg is nice. Best I get in my GMC is 13.5.
No real point to this post other than offer my opinion on one after driving it. I never really had an opinion before this about it.

They’re damn quick, wifes car ran 14.48 at the track; buddy at work had a 16 ecoboost, i got him outta the hole, but that little lead on the hit was all the lead i had the entire time.

That being said, literally all of my buddies that bought the eco’s went with the 5.0 on their next truck.

My neighbor just got a 2019 F-150 EcoBoost Limited, very fricking nice! Only think I don't like is the 22" rims which leaves too little meat to wrap around them IMO. I can't live with a payment that'd come with a new truck so I'll keep rolling around in my 05' Supercrew that sounds like a jar of marbles every time I start it., but at least I own it.

I scored on my SD i bought new in ‘16, but with current prices, i could honestly sell this damn this with 40,000miles on the ticker for what i paid new because the new truck prices are just phucking insane!!

Ill be rocking this sumbitch till the wheels fall off!!

Trust me, that 21.5 is not 21.5, more like 18-19. Ford's auto calculators are about 15% off.
My 2013 F150 5.0 Coyote is off 1 mpg.

Dash Says 22.5 but hand calculates to 21.5

not if but when they break you are going to wish you bought the V8
V-8's Don't break I guess!!!:rolleyes:Plenty of 150-200,000 mile 3.5 Eco Boosts out there!!!Tune for Tune the Eco Boosts are going to leave the 5.0 in the dust and also tow better stock!!:)Now if you plan on a Supercharger the 5.0 makes sense IMO!!:)
