Awesome — The ecoboost engine is fantastic, lots of low end grunt, very smooth and effortless but, they should have come with a manual mode selection (different mapping) for better fuel economy. The 3.73 rear end makes it difficult to cruise on the highway over 70 without running in boost all the time. Ford should have allowed the driver to select a different mode that would have opened a waste gate to reduce boost pressure. Other than that great truck, 46k miles and no issues.

Good Allround Pickup — Good looking vechicle with plenty power and torgue. It has the 3.5l eco-boost and outshines my old 5.4L in both power and economy. The only thing I don't like is how low it is in the front end. I plan to put a 2" lift kit in this spring. The ride is like a luxury car, compared to my 2001 F-150.

2012 Ford F-150 Ecoboost — I have had many vehicles and this one is a keeper. You have style, power, durability. With gas at a record low we can really enjoy long travels and knowing we will be safe. I hope this is our last truck as it is a keeper.

LOVE this truck.  The AC in the seats is AWESOME in south Florida.  Great styling and the SYNC system is wonderful.  Dependable and fun to drive.

Cons

Wish it had better gas mileage.

Would Buy Another Anytime! — Cannot say enough about my experience with FORD. The F150 is super dependable. had it 2 years from the showroom and only 1 small warranty issue. Looks like new. The sunroof venting also cools off things fast. Had no idea it had a power inverter to run a laptop or small electric appliance. A factory option!!!

Awesome Truck — We love to take the truck on vacations. Tons of room for the people in side & cargo in back. Great for towing my old car to car shows. The big gas tank is great for vacations we can go about 700 miles between fill-ups.

It Works Well For Family And Recreation. — I liked the remote start and the key pad entry. That is the BOMB! It handles very well in all kinds of weather and types of roads. I felt very secure in this truck in all conditions. It also looks handsome. The fact that the tallest person I know, at 6'9", is comfortable in the back seat is a bonus.

Pros

Plenty of HP for the truck

Cons

Typical Ford poor throttle response. Could use a stronger braking package.

Good Truck If They Can Fix The Throttle Issues. — Comfortable, quiet ride for a truck. Great suspension, great handling make this truck a nice ride. The only thing I have as a con is the throttle. I dislike the throttle response. In my opinion the throttle actuator HAS TO GO AWAY! There was nothing wrong with a direct connection to the throttle body with a cable. Please go back to a throttle cable. The throttle response hurts this truck so much. This is a work truck issued by the company that I work for. If I test drove this truck, I would not buy it just for the throttle issue. Other than that, that braking system is a little weak for the truck. Everything else excellent! thanks.

Immaculate And Spacious F150 Fx4 — I love everything about the truck except the gas mileage. The interior is very spacious, it has Sirius radio, Bluetooth, ipod sync, moonroof, back glass opens, and plenty of room in the back of the truck. Great vehicle to have

Room And Mileage — Got this one just for traveling accross the State of Texas to volleyball tournaments with the family. The Ecoboost has plenty of power to tow whatever I want and still gets good mileage on the road. Been averaging 19.6 in the city and 22 mpg on the highway with regular gas. Premium seems to get a little better mileage
