A FEW QUESTIONS ON SOME F150 OPTIONS: 2011-2015

I know this is the 09-14 section, but I am considering trucks between 2011-2015 if I might be able to find a good deal on a 2015 that I can afford. I have a few questions I hope you guys might be able to answer to help narrow down the truck I am looking for. I will be using the truck for some daily driving, camping, towing, offroading, etc purposes. I also want the ecoboost engine. So here are my questions.




Does only the fx4 come with a locking rear diff or can you get a lariat , platinum or king ranch with one also?
When did the 10 speed tranny get introduced? how does the 6 speed stack up against it?
are there any years with known issues that I want to avoid?
Which models or years have the shift **** on the center hump, I don't like the ones with the bench seat and shifter on the column?
which models have the full selection of 4x4, auto, hi, and low?


Thank you , and any other advise is welcomed. I hope to buy a truck in the next six months.

Does only the fx4 come with a locking rear diff or can you get a lariat , platinum or king ranch with one also? Locking rear axle was optional on all F-150s from XL and up 2011-2015 as far as I know


When did the 10 speed tranny get introduced? how does the 6 speed stack up against it? I've never driven the 10 speed which came out in 2017 behind the 3.5 Eco and in 2018 is behind all but the base engine. I can't comment on how it drives the but 6 speed has proven to be reliable and mostly problem free


are there any years with known issues that I want to avoid? I believe early Ecoboost trucks 2011-2012 could have a few issues that were later fixed, the vacuum pump behind one of them, otherwise '13-15 should be pretty good


Which models or years have the shift **** on the center hump, I don't like the ones with the bench seat and shifter on the column? you'll need to make sure you get a lariat or above trim and make sure it has a full length center console, that is the only way to get the floor mounted shifter, this goes for all years you are interested in


which models have the full selection of 4x4, auto, hi, and low? you will need a 2012 or newer lariat or above trim level to get the "Auto 4x4" option otherwise it will just be normal 4x4

Russ, I believe the '15 XLT with sport package came with the console mount shifter as well.

Learn something new every day, I'm not as well informed on the 15-up trucks.
