      I bought a 2017 STX, 2.7 liter for the same reason you did. I have spent about 7 thousand in upgrades so far and probably will spend more. The STX is the best bang for the buck.

      Cory turner Because a lariat does not have the best that aftermarket upgrades offer. For example some sick looking wheels will set you back atleast 1000 bucks. Some new nittos or toyo open country aggressive tires will cost 1000. Some power running boards are nice to add thats another 1000. A sick exhaust for the 5.0 to make it sound like a monster thats another 1000. Cold air intake and tune another 1000. The lariat does not have all these things that makes a truck awesome. Some suspension and shock upgrades for a lift will also cost another grand. I would rather buy the cheaper stx and build it and customize myself than buy the lariat is 10,000 more expensive for shitty technology that i actually dont give a fk about

      yea bouy I made that mistake on my last xlt. Put so much money in upgrades I should have just bought a Loaded xlt or lariat. Lesson learned

      Why spend almost $40k and still put $7k in upgrades?

      16 mpg is pretty bad for the 2.7L. My 5.0L will get around 20mpg on all highway driving.

      Good looking truck, man! Put a black grill guard, black headache rack, and black tool box on it to contrast with the white and it'll be looking even better! (in my opinion) Edit: Are those .300 blackout?

      Good video. Like the truck and everything about it. I have one with 5.0 and really like the power. I average 18.9 mpg combined. I have a white 02 F-150 with 5.4 and 155,000 on the clock. Happy with it so far also. Why I got a new one with silver ingot this time. Live free or die!

      Gave away your Ram. Paid $4,000. To rent their truck lol. Leasing is the worst car buying decision you can make.

      wow, leasing is a terrible idea and you got hosed on the price. just goto brandonford.com and see what the same truck would have cost you. would have been worth the flight to tampa!

      Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before but the auto start only works when the wheels are straight. If the tires are straight and it’s still not working then it may be defective. I have a 2018 STX. The gas mileage would get better if you select eco option I tend to get 20.6 on mine but it’s not as light as driving it normal.

      Dude, you got fleeced. Ever wonder why they were ok giving you what you asked for on your trade? It's because a savvy buyer will get them to $35k before talking trades. Shit, 30 seconds on truecar knocks $5k off the price. Plus they got you in a lease too. You could have been in a Lariat instead of a pretty XL for $44k.

      You idiot. You paid in the 40ks to lease! You gave them your truck and had a down payment and you are renting. Misleading fucking video. It would be a great deal if someone bought one of these for $30kish

      I just test drove a 2.7 and was surprised on how bad the fuel mileage was for a small 6. It did get up and go very well though, very responsive little engine.

      I then took the 5.0 for a ride and was getting 2-3 mpg more than the 2.7. Plus the 5.0 sounds awesome and was a blast in sport mode! The STX is a sharp looking truck if you don't mind simple options. Perfect truck to work out of and get off road with!

      I think you overpaid. Doing quick math in my head, including your trade-in money, down payment, lease residual/money factor and 36 month term, you are in Lariat territory for a lease. Dealer discount was also very subpar. Just for reference, I leased a '18 $54k XLT for $360 a month, only first month at drive off. Had I found a $3k Prive Offer code that Ford was offering most of last year, would have been in the $320 range. Also, STX's are excellent value when looking straight at the sticker, but they are usually never incentivised or dealer discounted nearly as well as an XLT. The best deal in trucks the last few years, has been a XLT with the 2.7 and Navigation added (due to the way Ford offers sticker discounts with those 2 options).

      I have a 2017 STX SuperCrew with the 2.7 EcoBoost. If I had to make the engine choice again, I would definitely go with the 2.7. My mileage does drop in the winter, mainly because of the winter blend fuels and cold morning warm ups. This is an extremely fast truck, especially in sport mode. In the summer It easily gets mileage in the high teens to low 20's

      Have you driven the 5.0 yet? I just drove both trucks 2.7 and 5.0 and that 5.0 was a blast in Sport mode, plus it sounds so good. The 5.0 won me over, more HP better sound and better mpg.

      On mileage I have found all my Ford vehicles will eventually get what’s on the sticker and beyond after a 5 to 10000 mile break-in period. I’m a lifelong Ford employee and retiree. Good Luck w/ America’s favorite vehicle!

      35,000 after a 12,000.00 trade in. During the summer sales these trucks go for around 35-37000 in the summer

      I bought the exact same truck last fall. Absolutely love it. I pull my 27’ travel trailer and that 2.7 eco has no issue pulling it. It just gets it!! I got a great deal. I paid $36,000 after tax. So I was happy happy happy.

      My 2018 F-150 2.7 actually gets very good mileage you just have to know how to hit the gas coming from a stand still although I have the rwd model in California the engine is actually very good with about 19-21 city and 23-27 highway depending on variables my only complaints are the 10 speed trans can be jerky at times and all the shifting it does. I actually like the basic interior makes it easier for everyday usability along with cloth seats and cleaning. Also it was my first new vehicle purchase with decent credit $2000 down msrp was $42k got it for $33k and lease payments of $409 with taxes can't complain.

      Sell it. I have a 2017 2.7 with 26k. It has been the absolute worst truck I have ever owned. Breaks down with stalling problems every time I tow more than 100 miles with it. Ford won’t fix it. The Interior lights quit, it got stuck in 4hi,Clunking Rear end,hard shifting. It also had the Oil pressure sensor fail. Truck was recalled because the fire proof lining may light on fire. To sum it up it’s a POS! I have never got less than 20mpg city is the only positive so you are obviously idling yours.

      Those 2 USBs are your apple & google car play btw, dont expect to charge ur phone with those ports without disabling or overiding it unless using the Play feature ;) love my STX i put a TurboSmart BOV on it, not that cheap & ghetto plug cap. Love the giant WOOSH everytime it releases my boost pressure. Done a bunch of other stuff but i have to admit i still miss a V8 exhaust note with a Borla exhaust, so dont waste your money on that. Also, do not get the Oil/Seperator unless u have money to waste because only our 2018 motors are Port and Direct injected, so the valves will be washed and cleaned. I bought 1 anyway to try it out and in 10k miles its barely developed a few drops of oil lol.
      Also if you get a Rear light bar (or if u dont) plug a trailer light hitch in the back or install a bypass plug, it will disable auto start/junk on start up. (Or in tow/haul mode etc) .. but a plug in the connecter makes it think u have a trailer, but doesnt put it in tow/haul. I hated hitting that stupid button everytime i got in it lol. Take care bro enjoy. I do regret being rushed and cheap not getting the Rear locking diff.. thats about it. Dont need 4x4 in Texas but man i wa ted the Rear locker, just incase (beach, mud, etc) :(.
      I paid 32k after everything including 750$ 5 year windshield and tire/rim replacement package.
      Ive already replaced the windshield once as they are ridiculously paper thin (cheap) Fords excuse is it has to do with the sound resonance or some bs 😂 Also replaced 2 Michelin tires, over 1000$ already free of charge and im not even 1 year in. Enjoy!
