    Full sliding rear window

    Yes, I love that in the Toyota. Would like to see it in the Ford. If you had that with the sunroof you could almost feel like you were in a convertible or a jeep on summer drives - but yet have a much more practical vehicle for driving!

    What the F150 Needs in the next Generation - Towing

    I second this as a like-to-have feature. A lot of folks are buying Ecoboosts to tow campers!
  3. I am curious about this too. I am hoping to buy a New-to-me, used Ecoboost. I am wondering if I need to stretch my budget to try to get a newer generation Ecoboost. Most of the trucks in my budget are in the 2012-15 model years. Having just sold a truck that I had to replace the engine in due to Cam Phaser issues, I don't want to make that mistake again. It has been hard to determine if I should wait to buy the newer gen or not. I tend to find mostly positive comments about the Ecoboost engines, but I don't want to fall into "confirmation bias" and miss something.

    20" or 18" factory wheels. Pros and Cons.

    Does anyone know if the wheel size changes the tow capacity ratings on the newer F-150s? In our previous 06 Ford, we had a lower towing capacity due to the larger wheel size that came stock with the truck. I am looking to upgrade to a 2013 or newer and want to keep a higher tow capacity for hauling our camper. Thanks.

    I have used Weather Tech in the past but I appreciate hearing about other options!

    5.4 triton

    I just know that I wish I had read more about the Triton engine before buying a 06 F150. We bought a used one with 120K, and had it inspected at a Ford Dealer before purchase. They gave it a clean bill of health, but we didn't drive it 2 months before the Cam Phaser Issue became apparent. We had to drop over $6K to get the engine replaced. =( Wish I had done more homework. That said, I am looking at replacing the truck with an Ecoboost.

    Don’t buy a Ford

    As with every manufacturer, there are some good ones and some bad ones. I swore I would never buy another Ford after having problems with a 5.4 Triton and having to replace the engine prematurely. But, you can't judge a giant company by one bad egg - here I am back to Ford to buy an Ecoboost F-150. I have just heard too many good things about them to ignore them.
