    Looks Good. EcoBoost is Awesome!

  • Johnny Tightlips

    Pretty bold move by Ford to make the regular F-150 look like the super-duty… It seems more brands are looking to unify their looks…

  • Bubba

    Only a wuss would drive  a 6 cyl. EcoBoost.  Get a real truck.

  • Joe

    I will take my EcoBoost against anything you have, any day of the week!  420lbs of torque … 0-60 in 6 sec. pulls 11,900 lbs.. nice comment :)

  • Jaredhhhh

    A wuss that could beat you in a drag race while towing a 6,000 pound boat.

    Leave the v6 for the Ford Exploder. Real trucks run V8’s!
