Default New DD: 2012 F150 Ecoboost!

Picked her up last night. Ford is giving away rebates like crazy on their vehicles right now for the autoshow, and I made the mistake of test driving this truck when I had the Mustang in for service earlier this week. After driving it, I completely fell in love with the darn thing and now its in my driveway!

It's got the 5.5' bed which will be getting line-x applied as well as a hard tonneau cover, probably some time next week.

I'm super excited about this purchase. It's my first 100% new car ever! The truck drives SO smooth and the interior is so damn nice that its just hard to get out of the truck. I <3 heated seats. I <3 ecoboost. I <3 the nav display & sync bluetooth integration!

Here's some pics:








Out to the driveway now to put my radar detector into this truck!

Oh and those who are wondering, yes the 'burb is still here!

As much as I hate to say it, Ford's product lines are FAR superior right now that the competing GM product. TRUST ME, I wanted to believe that a GM truck was going to make me happy... and I DID drive them. Both a 1500 5.3 and a 2500 Duramax. Neither were as nice as this F150.

Ford is doing well for itself, except that they just made the Escape ugly as hell, but that truck is NICE!. Tune that EcoBoost and get some more power out of it now!

I really love those eff one fiddies, particularly the ecoboost flavor. Very nice purchase eagle and good choice on color too. If I am ever in the market for a pickem up truck, that is definitely near the top of the list
