I took a chance on this truck knowing Ford has had reliability issues in the past. My brief experience with this truck, before I returned for a refund only, reinforced this concern. The truck, an EcoBoost 3.5L V6 version, was experiencing significant Engine Timing Cover Oil Leak at only around 40k miles. Online searches turned up many others complaining of the same problem. Also, take this for what it's worth but online searches of the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 F150 turned up a lot of complaints of sudden loss of power on highway under acceleration as well which I found to be pretty alarming. I will admit I was impressed with the acceleration but I never did get close to the advertised MPG stated by Ford even when I was driving conservatively.
I have loved this truck since the day I bought it. The ride is incredibly smooth. Shifts smooth, soft suspension, perfect handling. Lots of power in the V8 5.0 model. Very quick for a truck and I haven't found anything it won't tow. Most comfortable ride I've ever had towing or not. Great job Ford.
this truck is a solid build. with the 3.5L twin turbo V6 ecoboost engine, it has ample amounts of power and unbelievable torque. when driven responsibly, the gas mileage is outstanding for a full size truck. throttle response is a bit slow (my previous truck was a V8 and was much more responsive) but once moving the horsepower makes up for it. It has great visibility and the cabin room is amazing. my 6'5" father-in-law fits comfortably in the back seat!
