      These trucks with the 5.0 are getting the long blocks replaced due to excessive oil consumption. Ford is shrugging their shoulders as to why.

      Pretty sure 8’ bed is not an option on super crews...only single and extended cab variants.

      I like the XLT better than any of the other levels. I don't like the fancy stuff in a truck. I believe the XLT is the ideal set up for a pickup truck, not too fancy but still covers all the bases.

      I've always been for Toyota but the F150 just offers so much that the tundra and tacoma doesn't. The F150 just seems like such a solid truck for the price.

      There’s also a little known fact for XLT but if you want a center console although you can get it in both the chrome package and the sport appearance package you can’t get a center console shifter unless you get the sport package. You are stuck with a column shifter in the chrome package for some strange reason.

      You’re right - another viewer pointed this out too! The Ford configurator online doesn’t tell you this though until you try to build it and then it tells you the two aren’t compatible

      You can dress up an XLT nicely, add the 302a package, chrome package, 40 40 front seat, Sync 3 and now you have totally different truck from your video example. Thanks!

      That's exactly what I did. The leather turned out beautifully! Mine has the 301A package with the Synch screen. I love that 5.0L. 19 -20 city mpg and 23-24 highway. Great vehicle!

      T Sav you’re totally right! I sat in one like that at the Detroit Auto Show. The only thing you don’t get is leather which cloth can sometimes be better in a truck anyway.

      Did that V8 had engine whistle on low rpm?

      Butch Dye In reply to ustupidshit

      ustupidshit mine doesn’t and btw what is that? (Could be air intake). I don’t notice anything with windows up or down. To add a side note. I pulled into the dealer today and salesman asked if I had the 2.7l in my f150 Xlt ..told him no, the 5.0. He said the 5.0 will outlast them all.

      Jamie Ness In reply to ustupidshit

      Windows down it will a little bit and I think it has to do with air intake. I’ve heard doing the cold air intake from k&n increases engine noise but should drop whistle since it’s an open air box.

      ustupidshit maybe a little bit - not sure what would cause it since there is no turbocharger/supercharger but they really did a great job with the sound

      Solid review. A buddy of mine has one of these and I agree that it really doesn't seem like, essentially, a base model.
