perfect blend of economy, reliability, and performance
2017 Ford F-150 XL
we bought our F150 thanksgiving 2017. it has the ecoboost engine with 330 HP. I'm not sure which size engine that is. for the first 1.5 years my wife drove it, putting about 10-15 miles on a day, averaging about 20 mph. we bought the bare bones trim package with the rubber floor throughout for easy cleaning. the extended cab model is perfect for us, since both car seats fit in the back snugly. for larger stature adults, I would recommend getting the 4 door model, not much leg room for the front passenger in the ext cab model. we also chose the ext cab model for the longer 6.5' bed, as we do a lot of DIY projects. this truck was an upgrade from our previous truck, a tacoma ext cab. we outgrew that truck, not enough cabin space.
right now, the truck has 12,500 miles on it and we have not had a single problem with it. the ecoboost engine has plenty of power for what we do.
