Dream Truck and starting a new chapter in our live

King Ranch 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
We bought our 2016 Ford F-250 King Ranch Diesel 4x4 last week, in 8 days we put almost 800 miles on it. We were averaging the same or more MPG as we were with my 2005 Dodge SLT 4x2 with the 4.7 engine. We were averaging 17.0 mpg driving back roads and highways in Arizona. Absolutely love the comfort of this truck. We purchased this truck to haul our trailer across country. My wife is starting as a Traveling Nurse and just retired from the Army, we are really looking forward to this truck giving us the reliability and comfort we are sure it will exceed or expectations.
This is the basic XL F250 4x4 with no automatic no fancy electric do-dads, etc... but for the price .....we were able to purchase this vehicle brand new & we preferred not to have all the fancy gadgets & do-dads as we wanted a useful work truck & that is exactly what we got & loving it.
Our 2016 is a used fully loaded 6.7 diesel Platinum Crewcab 4x4 with a 6" lift on 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers/Gear rims (bought with 4000 miles). Every bit as luxurious as a premium sedan, great ride quality/low noise for a big truck, and surprisingly good MPG thus far (15mpg city/19mpg hwy). Towing our RV or boat is effortless. The short bed allows my wife and I to camp out in the bed with an air mattress and sleeping bags--we like the outdoors. Too early to comment on long term reliability, but the 6.7 has a good reputation thus far. Love this truck. Well done Ford!
