    The 4wd is out on my 05 Chevy...

    Had to rent a vehicle for a trip with three ladies and a dog. Enterprise offered an F-150four door 4wd with the Ecoboost Gas motor.

    I drove it to Miami and back with side trips to Key West etc for a few days before picking the dog and third lady up at the Miami Airport.

    Gas motor but I was shocked at how nice the truck rode, gas mileage(22.5-23.5) going 79 mph on the interstate.

    I did not tow with it, did not take it off road or have to work on it but it was very impressive just the same. I drove it in Ecco mode mostly but switched to Sport mode just before taking it back, The truck was impressively fast off the line and through the gears!!!

    It's just stupid. I just want a new XLT crew but I can't stomach the $40k price tag. The 2012 I have now was right around $34k new.

    Makes one wonder what the justification is for Ford to ask that much for a diesel engine equipped F 150, no matter how good a gas mileage it gets you'll never get your money back spending more for the diesel, unless your planning on putting 500,000 miles on the truck :doh

    That EcoBoost motor is hot, for what it is. I’ve rented several of them for work now, and a few of the v8s, and that v6 will leave the v8 in its dust. I’m not a Ford fan, but that motor will scream.
