      Good point Sam! I thought there was also going to be a bigger touch screen. Other than that pretty good truck.

      I'm no fuel economy expert but I've heard that twin turbo V6 only gets three miles better gas mileage than the V8

      Call me an idiot but that doesn't seem like a big difference

      But what do I know I'm just an idiot sharing a gas guzzling raptor with my dad

      a really good question: How would you compare Ford FX4 vs Ram Rebel????
      THanks.
      This Q is in lots of people's mind, specially the suburbia family.

      The Rebel is a bit more off-road equipped than the FX4. Our review on the Rebel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Sgobb0n414

      The only thing that I wish SHOULD BE STANDARD on the King Ranch as well as on the Platinum (the two highest trim) trim is the bedliner - drop-in or spray-on.

      do you think that this truck with a truck camper at 1600 pound in the box, would be working it hard ? or do you think it'll change fuel economy a lot ?

      TFLTruck is a joke. I appreciate your review that seems fair and informative.

      +steedsful As much as we hate to send viewers to a competitor, TFLTruck has done a number of mpg towing reviews on pickups. They might have covered this one.

      +steedsful That's a good question. One of the things with the turbocharged engines is that under load like accelerating a lot they tend to lose their mpg advantage. We have not had the opportunity to test one with a payload.

      Between 8:45 and 9:06 minute, he says that it rattles a little bit if you look at the center console it looks like it does or shakes.  I checked this truck  and the bigger 3.5 Eco boost and they look nice.  I just wasn't  comfortable with the way the engines looked kind of small for a big truck.   Just concerned about towing  in the long run with that small engine it might get overworked sooner.  Considering the price range and reliability ,  I ended up buying a 2016 Tundra TRD extended cab and my wife is happy.

      the xlt has a lot on incentives. here in San Diego I've seen them with up $13k of discount. I just wish it had no chrome and the culum shifter to be in the console and push start ignition with black interior and I'll take it.

      suicide doors for a truck? Not good. We like to get out of the back row seating without help. the man step? Well could be a few inches lower for us height challenged folks.

      Jesse Reyna Trucks should ONLY be regular cab or extended cab with suicide doors. If it has 4 full size doors then it is not a true truck, it is just a minivan with a truck bed.

      Just an observation... why was there so much rust underneath the chassis? This is a desert environment, and I caught a glimpse of rust on the tie rods and rear differential. Hmm..

      +madmanhiker probably surface rust from condensation. These trucks are built in Kentucky and Dearborn Mi . lots of humidity there . My brand new 2016 f150 was delivered to my dealer in Toronto , it was shipped by rail then truck to the dealer in the rain , there was surface rust underneath , totally normal .

      +madmanhiker These are un-finished raw cast-iron pieces. Most often they get a patina of surface rust from moisture in the air before they ever finish their train ride from the factory to the dealerships.

      Nice review Sam...looks like a great truck except for the price...nearly 45K for a mid range truck? Uhm no..I will wait for one of these babies to come off lease and pick it up used..although the long term life of the Ecoboost remains to be seen.

      I still think my 2014 fx4 is better looking and much nicer then this 2015. I paid $45,000 and the 2014 fx4 is fully loaded without those silly air vents.

      With the great deal I just got on my Lariat (paid invoice and received $2250 in rebates) I paid $48,000 for my truck that had an $54,000 MSRP. It's a Super Crew 3.5L ecoboost.

      I agree with you about the trim level that you reviewed. MOST reviews that I've watched have all been Lariat, King Ranch and the Platinum...basically just to show off all the features. I bought the XLT with the 301A because the higher trim levels are WAY too much money, and the extra features seems useless to me for the money. Heated and cooled seats? HA HA. XLT seems to be the sweet spot with affordability. I did add a couple of extra features like a tow package and the payload package though.

      +Adrokk hey so how is your truck ?
      I'm looking at that exact one that you have.
      i've heard there is lots of problems and the milage sucks...but the reviews online are all amazing apparently.

      +Adrokk Yep the XLT is the sweet spot; not to much money but has all the key features.
