Great truck in every respect
February 27, 2018
Wonderful performance that I truly didn't expect from an F150 truck. The site won't let me say it but this is a new 2018 Ford F150 eco boost with STX trim. It not only looks wonderful, a bit of Star Wars storm trouper look, but this twin turbo V6 kicks butt. 400 lb. ft. of torque with a 10 speed transmission in an aluminum body truck is the real deal. As the ad on TV says this truck " is the bar ". The mileage is impressive and although I thought I might not like the eco stop, start feature, it really is not a problem and has a switch to deactivate it if I want to. The warranty with this truck will ease any worries that I have about my continued love of this truck.
My wife and I were using her Cadillac SRX to pull our mini SUV trailer last summer and while it could do it, it wasn't happy about it I might say. The package that this F150 has for towing includes heavier radiator, sway bars, an integrated wiring harness with brake control and a camera which functions with the dynamic backing assist which is controlled by a knob on the dash. It also includes led lighting from the tailgate which illuminates the hitch area which I'm sure is going to be useful.
I know its early into my relationship with this truck but I'm a 68 year old mechanic who has been in the trenches of the car and truck business for 50 years and I am just blown away by everything about this truck. It not only accelerates like a racecar, it gets great mileage, it is quiet, has a great ride, has a nice sound system, has great fit and finish and is well priced.
I did take advantage of Ford's ad which offered a great rebate on several of the features this truck has like the 4x4 drivetrain. That saved thousands and it made the deal work for me and my wife. Looking forward to a long healthy relationship with this truck and a great Ford dealer.
