    Diesel vs eco boost vs 5.0L. MPG mainly. Never considered the smaller of the two. I did not want to put this answer out in public as I didn't want to get into a long debate over gas vs. diesel price. And some long drawn out formula about it will take you x number of years to get that back. I happen to be in a situation where the big picture budget is watched but the small stuff I can afford.

    Hey, been seeing your posts about trading your 2016 F150 for a '17 F250 and just wanted you to know I feel your pain! I bought a '16 F150 King Ranch that listed for $66,XXX, paid $57,000 for it, and now 9 months later and 24,000 miles the best trade-in offer I've had is $44,000. Seems absolutely crazy to me! I have a buddy that traded his '16 Platinum that listed for $64,XXX and 44,000 miles and they gave him $44,000 as well. I love the King Ranch, but thinking my next one will be a Platinum just from a resale perspective. This is my first Ford and I'm pretty frustrated about the resale value! I traded Denali Duramax HD's for years for $10 to 12k per year with 40,000 miles. I like the Ford better tho, so I won't go back! Anyways, just wanted to share in your frustration!
