EcoBoost gives this truck an A in my book!


The turn signal switch went about a month after I bought the vehicle, which had me worried, but it's been smooth sailing since (now owned it for 8 months).

Gas mileage is about as bad as the 5.0L.

General Comments:

The cloth seats are comfortable, and honestly having the extra 3rd seat in the front (console folds up into seat) is convenient when required.

Like I mentioned above, the mileage is comparable to the 5L, but the acceleration from the 3.5L EcoBoost definitely blows it away thanks to the turbos.

This is my first truck and if I was to purchase another in the future, Ford is doing a good job in the quality department, so I'd get another without question.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
