Honest Thoughts on the 3.5 Ecoboost....need help deciding

Since i had to sell my F250 to buy wifey a minivan (boooo), I am now in the market for a new F150. Not sure about the 3.5 liter....that is all that seem to be on the lots right now.

Any thoughts? Reliability? I have read through this board and others, just looking for some opintions.

Thanks! (sorry been gone so long.....life gets in the way of play sometimes!)

Have you drove one?
I haven't,but I here good things from everyone I talked to that has one.
Anything with boost is a good thing.
I was talking to a guy just the other day and he loves his. Says it has more then enough power!

Everything I have read says it has more than enough power. I am just a little leary of buying something brand new like that. Years ago, my brother in law was looking at the Dodge Intrepid.....the first year they came out. He bought a Sable instead....thank goodness.!

I just don't want to get stuck holding the old maid!

Thanks for your input!

You can't go wrong with a new Ford. The new EB is a absolute beast. I live by a big Ford dealership and NEVER see a EB out in the lot.. they never have them in stock.. must be a good thing lol
