His is the first or 2nd year iirc. Yes they have made improvements. They've probably made 100 billion of them since then

We bought my wife a 15 2.7 a year ago. It had 25k and now has almost 55k. It gets pretty respectable mpgs for a full size that can still tow ~8k. Lie o meter usually says around 18 mpg with mostly town driving. Last highway trip it said over 20. We really like it so far.

Insurance said it's a total loss

There's a discrepancy between the truck being a long bed and a short bed. It's a long bed but state farm has it as a SHORT

I have to prove its a long bed before they discussed payout

I've never driven a 3.5, but the power delivery on our 2.7 is impressive. I also have a 6.2 powered 2017 F250 company truck. It's got plenty of power, but the little 2.7 pulls from a lower RPM.

It would be cool if they made a 3.5 ecoboost super duty, or heck even a 5.0 ecoboost

They do it's just a 6.7 EcoBoost

The new 7.3 should shake things up.

The 7.3 sounds like it's going to be bad ass. I still think a 3.5 F250 would be sweet for those who are just pushing the limits of a half ton, but would like to get better than 12 mpg.

I also have weather tech front floor liners, rear Ford super crew floor mat, thick bed mat, Pedal Commander, and the Hypertech programmer
