Well, the wife fell in love with the new EcoBoost F150, so who am I to hold her back from buying a Ford?

Brought it home last night, and I cant stop looking at it. It is a SuperCrew FX2 EcoBoost F150. Equipped with Navi, Sync and the sony system. Black leather all the way around, with a moonroof and a power slider in the rear. Hope to see some decent fuel mileage, and no more speeding tickets. I drove it home lst night, and had to set the cruise. It kept wanting to roll to 90 MPH. :evil

Future should hold a 3/5 drop with 22's or 24's, and a tonneu cover to start. Dont think I should have to do to much more to it. All I can say is, it makes me smile to see to blue ovals in the driveway! :ford:

PICS!!!

Smokes it. Test drove both, and the ecoboost is way more impressive!

i hope that is a plate holder on the front and that plate is not just screwed to the bumper. Sweet ride though, i test drove a 2012 f150 with a 5.0, it had some power

The front plate is muonted to the little cap on that side. Crappy part about it is, I cant just pull it off like I do on every other vehicle. So I have to order a 5.0 front valance for it. Reason the plate is not in the middle like the 5.0, is because of the intercooler on the ecoboost is right in the middle gap.

As far as the power went, it was a different feel. The 5.0 had good pull at 3500 RPM, and sounded good doing it; obviously. But this EcoBoost pulls hard from the start and all the way through. At 365 HP and 420 ft. lb of torque, its a runner.

At a 14.9 quarter @ 92 mph, I think its a keeper. BTW, 5.0 runs a 15.5 quarter.

Very cool! Do they offer the EcoBoost in a Reg Cab Short Box? Would be the closest thing to a modern day Lightning.

Yes, been toying with the idea of trading my 250 in for an ecoboost. I want to see what the aftermarket has to offer though. Everything I'm hearing/reading says they will respond to tuners like the 6.4's did... and the bottom ends are built VERY strong.

I tried like hell to get her to buy the 5.0, but after driving the ecoboost, shooooot. No comparison! Im doing some research on f150forum. Fuel mileage is averaging around 18 in town, with half highway.

I have considered more than twice about trading the sixoh for an fx4 ecoboost. I am thouroughly impressed. Has also made me consider a 6.7.
