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.

Pros

All the power plus more torque than v8 in a v6 package.  23 hwy in a 1/2 is kind of impressive.  Rides smooth compared to most half tons.

Cons

not quite enough room in the bed for 4 men guns and gear hunting trips but we did try to bring too many guns.   18 inch tires are kind of pricey.

Do All — The worst thing about these vehicles is the factory tires. I live about 200 yrds down a gravel road and had 5 flat tires in less than 800 miles on the truck. I put 10 ply tires on and sold the tires that it came with.

Beast — Great off road and has plenty of room in rear seat area, great for towing the camper. Folding Mirror are great and will save me from replacing it when going through the woods or narrow carport. Back up camera in mirror is great.

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.

Pros

V6 365 HP with twin turbo, power when you need it fuel economy when it counts.  Seats six with fold up center console with all features you need to move the family from point A - B or take it off road and survive the wild.  Interlocking rear axle selector provides posi-traction simply by pulling on selector switch.

Cons

Nothing - Love it!

Best All Around 6 Seater You Can Buy, Fol Up Center Console Is Great. — Have owned Fords pick ups all my life and this is by far the most advanced vehicle with no issues and best gas mileage in its class. More power than all of my V8's, have pulled a toy hauler North every year for hunting and don't even know it's there. Best all around 4x4 pickup ever made, maybe that's the reason its the number one best seller in the country over all other cars and trucks made. The 2015 is aluminum frame, check the reviews before you buy. I have a relative that works on the stamping dies, I have inside information and will not buy the aluminum frame. 2014 or older steel frame is the way to go for now until they get it right.

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!!!

Pros

Fuel economy is  unreal...better than the ratings...but I do use premium fuel for the Twin Turbo Ecoboost !! Rear Camera makes parallel parking a snap
Sync systewm takes some getting used to, but once mastered , it works wonderfully.
Sat radio is a must....no commercials and a great variety of stations.

Cons

Electronic power steering  is a bit heavy for my liking.  
Any warranty work done at the dealership was like pulling teeth. Having a legitimate complaint seemed to fall on deaf ears , until they actually experienced the problem ( auxiliary air pump became noisy and was replaced, had to have the power window switch re-initialized 3 times, but still have the occasional time when pressing switch gets no response for up or down motion)
Finally when I had them do a look over before the bumper to bumper warranty period was up ....they missed the leaking right front strut !!  I went back a week later and had it replaced by them after complaining !!

Over 60 Thousand Km On This Truck And It Has Never Let Me Down — I read up a lot on full size trucks and took a few for drives. I settled on the 2012 F-150 with the Ecoboost motor, just because it has gobs of power and was rated with excellent fuel economy. I have not towed yet, but have hauled scrap concrete and misc renovation crap to the city dump with no issues.... truck handled well and did not sag with the added weight in the back. for passing vehicles on the highway...this turbo V-6 is wonderful !! Almost no turbo lag from low speeds and it takes off like a scared rabbit. Hwy fuel economy was 9.2 liters per 100km..or about 25mpg US I get over 18 mpg US in the city Again, I will add that I use premium fuel and have switched to using synthetic oil for lubrication.

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

Great ride.  Wonderful space in the back seat.  (almost like a limo)

Cons

Low gas mileage.  ecco boost V6 has averaged just under 14 mpg.  But some of the poor gas mileage may be due to the driver. ;-)
