Of course now I'm big time I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4 that I paid a whopping $4000 for. It even has a remote key fob that actually unlocks the doors. I think it's the first vehicle I've ever owned that automatically unlocks the doors for me.

I’ve got a 16 F150 XLT with the 3.5 EB and under 75k miles. I’d take $31k for. FX4 pkg with leveling kit and a set of Cooper Discoverer AT3’s with about 15k miles on them. 295/70-18’s. Gets about 17 mpg in mixed driving and 11-12 loaded pulling a tractor. Got about 2 more mpg’s both ways with stock tires. Plenty of power. Love it for the low rpm torque. If I sell it I’ll replace it with the exact same setup except I’ll get the 302a interior package with the bigger screen in the dash.

Pulls WAY better than a 5.0 in my opinion. Doesn’t down shift all the time and run the revs way up. Just kind of meanders along. Doesn’t run away with a load but never seems to be suffering. Firm believer in a 3.5. Not sure about the new 2.7 one though.

I just bought a 2018 F150 xlt 4x4 screw with 3,100 miles with the 3.5L ecoboost way cheaper than that.
This is the second ecoboost I've owned it'll flat out pull. I've had just about every engine Ford
has put in a truck and the eco engine exceeds the power of them imo. It has no hesitation when you need
to get on it like some V8. All in all I would most definitely go with the 3.5L eco. As far as the lariats they are nice
but why does a kid need all that other than wanting to be cool. I'm way past that I've got a really nice
truck for way less.
Google and compare the 3.5L ecoboost vs 5.0 you will be surprised with the results. I've never had a moment's trouble with the ecoboost.

How many miles have you put on an ecobbost? That is my concern, longevity out of that engine.

The previous one I had 80,000 on it and I know that's not a lot of miles but didn't have any trouble at all with it.I just got the urge to get
something newer and ran across the 2018 demo with 3,100 miles. I loved the 2013 but the 2018 is a much improved truck

Listen I pull a 34ft. pull behind camper when I ask for power the 3.5 eco twin turbo gives it to me. It will reach down
and grunt and go. It's kinda like a closer he's throwing 98mph the count is 0-2 in the bottom of 9th he rears
back and throws one 101mph to end the game. Research it, ask around I'm just one person, but I believe you
won't go wrong with the 3.5L eco.

I told him last night he has got to get his credit number up. He is going to get a daily use credit card and pay it every month and I suggested finding a good, cheaper truck, maybe $20,000 or so and finance it, then after about a year his credit number should be higher and he can trade it and get the truck he wants. He doesn't want to co-sign.

Absolutely I agree with that.

I catch myself sometimes looking at newer to me Avalons but mine I still owe a remaining $7,000 on mine and it goes down the road just fine.
Glad I've got a stipend from my employer to pay for it.

My debt, but I'm not the one really servicing it is how I think of it in my head at least.

Her is my advise for people about trucks and cars especially when they are young. Buy a vehicle you can pay cash for. Every month put aside the amount you would pay in car payments. Suck it up for 4-5 years and the walk in a dealership and pay cash for your next vehicle. Repeat. That way, you are never paying interest on a vehicle. It will save you money. It takes discipline and the first few years you have to drive an older vehicle. But, it is the smart thing to do.

Best advice on this thread.

To those who say its nuts to buy a new truck, someone has to buy them so you can buy a used one in 5-10 years. 😀

If I had the discipline to do that when I was in my 20s, I could easily be a millionaire today.

Blah blah blah. I’ll keep my money in the market and make 8 percent. I financed my truck for 2.9 percent. I buy new and drive them till they die. Stupid to use hard saved dollars when intrest is cheap. Y’all pay to much attention to Dave Ramsey.🤦‍♂️

That's a good plan until the global economy crashes and you're broke. 😮

Yeah and if your makin that kind of profit then why dont you pay cash for it instead of losing on that 2.9 interest? To me its stupid to pay interest. And to pay those rates, car payments and full coverage on a vehicle that will be junk in not much time. This is a good example of why things cost so much. Cause folks just want a payment and dont have the cash to buy it and are willing to make a bad decision. They dont care about how much they are gonna spend over time. All they care about is the monthly payment. I can fix my own cars myself. If i couldnt fix my stuff myself and had to pay a shop...then i might take that road. The best decision i ever made was to learn automotive work.

I agree. The last two trucks I've bought, I've gotten 0% interest buying brand new, plus tons of rebates. I priced used before buying my current truck, and I bought brand new for $3000 more than what a 3 year old truck with 50K miles and no warranty would have cost me. I pay them off in 4 years or less, and drive them 10+ years.
