Don't get the echo boost
By donewithf150 on
2012 Ford F-150 Platinum 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.0L 8cyl 6A)
I have owned every model half ton truck there is from ford to Toyota. I was excited to read the reviews and read all the info I could about the latest and greatest f150 with the Eco boost engine. Ordered one just the way I wanted it.
Don't believe the hype. The engine is a dog. Yes it will pass everything out there, except a gas station. I know several owners of this hyped engine and no one gets anything close to the promised gas mileage. We all get about 14 to 15 combined average with 16 to 18 on the road.
Love my 2013 new dodge 2500 and get 18.9 with it.
It rides smooth
Don't hype the gas mileage. If you would have said it would get ten and I got fifteen I would have been happy. Sell reality not fantasy.
