My 2017 F150 FX4 Lariat is due the week of June 5th. After a lot of research and countless YouTube videos I went with the 3.5 Ecoboost with the 10 speed transmission. Test drive one you will be amazed at the power and towing capacity.

I would have bought the King Ranch but it only comes in a Super Crew with a 5 1/2' box. I wanted a 6 1/2 box so I ordered a Super Cab with all of the King Ranch options for about 5500 less.

I would recommend not buying any. Ford service is the worst I've ever seen,
Had multiple issue issue on mine and some have reoccurred ( I.e rear window defroster). Like I had to pull teeth to get warranty work.

I bought a 2015 Super Crew F150 4x4 with a 3.5L Ecoboost. I've only owned it for about a year and a half, and have 36+ thousand miles on it so far. It's been good so far. The only complaint I have is the front rotors are warping and that the 110V outlets won't charge my portable power tool batteries. That being said, I had the same brake problem with my Tundra. As for customer service, I've not really needed it. I think that's sometimes more of a reflection of the dealer rather than the brand.

2015 Supercrew with the 2.7L and 3.55 EL rear. great drivetrain for a DD/weekend warrior truck. 44K+ miles and no mechanical issues. I did have the TSB for the harsh downshift done, but I dont think that pertains to the new trucks. The truck has otherwise been great so far.

2016 Supercab with the 2.7L ecoboost with 15000 miles. I had 2, 5.0L (2011 and 2013) and prefer the little 2.7. I haven't had any problems with any of them though. The fuel milage is pretty good too for a full size pickup, 20 around town and 22-24 highway. The only complaint I have with my ford is I wish they would use a tailgate that drops slowly on its own like most of the others do.

Im a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

For $40 you can have the easy lower tailgate, I added it to mine. It's the lower 2 part numbers, you end up replacing a tailgate hinge and adding a strut behind the passenger side tail light.

Iv'e had my 2016 F150 , 3.5 eco boost ,extended cab, 8' bed for a little over a year now. Consistent 17mpg around town, 21 on hiway( usually loaded or small trailer)
I'm very happy with this truck. Iv'e owned 4 Ford pickups, and a '78 Bronco since 1975 and this is the best one to date. I agree with Wexford that service issues are a dealers problem.

I have a 2016 Regular Cab 4X4, 8' bed, with the 2.7 eco-boost and 3.55 rear. Only 10 months old, no problems so far. I've hauled bricks, rocks, lumber, landscaping blocks, compost, mulch, dead deer, and turkey.
