Default looking at leasing a new f150. any pointers?

We got offered an out on the wifes 2015 ford edge lease.
Im thinking about leasing a new f150 4x4.
It will b a super cab, or maybe a crew cab, with 6.5ft box.
It wont b loaded. Probably a mid level xlt 4x4.
i was torn between a coyote 5.0L, and a 3.5L eco boost.
But im seeing tons of 2.7L ecoboosts cheaper.
I tow my travel trailer 4 miles in the spring, 4 miles in the fall.
So i think towing will b a non issue.

Any one got a 2.7L ecoboost yet?

what gearing works well in the newer f150s?

Anyone got a 10 speed trans yet?

Anyone here sell fords?

I'm partial to the coyote, mine is a 2012 tho. A buddy has a pop can with an ecoboost. He's happy with it.

If you don't plan on towing a ton the 2.7L should be ok. I'm not a fan of a turbo'd 6 moving that much truck but to each their own.

The crew cab with a 6.5 bed is long (20-22') and can be a bear to park at times. I tend to park out and away from everyone, I also put my back tires on the line between two spots so my front end stays attached and no one parks close to my bumper.

we have had a leaf sprung 02 super duty since 05.
if you can park that, u can park any thing!

we dont tow much any more.
i keep my camper about 4 miles from the campground.
might tow a couple snowmobiles a few times a year.
maybe the jeep once in awhile.
2.7L is rated to tow 8500 now.

my sister has the coyote in a 14 f150 4x4.
its pretty nice, sounds mean too.

Dana hooked me up as well. I got a 150 crew short bed with a 3.5, its sick fast! It continues to shock me how much power it has. I know a couple people with the 2.7 and they have no complaints. I have one co-worker that traded in his 3.5 for a 5.0 and he says he liked the Ecoboost way better, he hauls and tows probably more then most.

I've pulled a few thousand pounds around a few times, this week I'll.be headed to SniFari with the JKU on a trailer so I'm interested to see how it does, it's rated for 12,200lbs so I think it should handle it

I'm not all that nice on it, mostly country and highway driving, I'm getting 17.5 mpg with winter crap gas.

The 10 speeds I don't think are out yet, they are having issues with them.

@TOPTRUK has a 2016 optioned almost exactly how you describe. Crew cab, 6.5ft bed, cloth and less options, etc. Still a super nice truck. He had a 3.5 Ecoboost before that did really well and towed great, was going to try a 5.0 this time but couldn't find any optioned how he wanted so ended up with another 3.5. Based on the few times I've been with him while towing it does great. Puts my old 6.0 Chevy to shame. I'm still not sold on longevity of the ecoboost, I've seen a few too many of the older ones rolling coal already, but for a lease I'd get one in a heartbeat.

I've also got a friend with a 2.7 Ecoboost. It's downright fast for a 1/2 ton truck, I don't see any reason it would have a problem with occasional tow duty.

Very happy with my 16 XLT 3.5L ecoboost. This one would be my 3rd lease. I miss the rumble of a V8 but the ecoboost has much better towing capability (just don't look at the MPG's while towing). I get these leases because they are supper cheap with all the rebates and A plan. Need to lease at the correct times as the rebates and deals change. They recently just had great deals on leftover 2.7's but I'm pretty sure the majority of those have been taken. I have a $348 payment for 10,500 mile a year lease with a sticker of $53,600. It's ridiculous how cheap the payments are on these trucks for the sticker value. My wife's edge is more a month for a cheaper vehicle. I have a DD for my commute but wanted a dependable tow rig I don't have to ever think about hooking a trailer up to and making a long trip.

If you want cheap payment, definitely get a dodge. Have a few buddies that are only paying $250 a month for their Hemi's

Ram Nissan or gm truck are probably going to be the cheapest lease.

Ford and Toyota are probably the highest to lease. It's hard to find a 2.7l f150 with all the tow goodies and if you do it's $2 less than a 3.5L

i went in to chevy dealer and they wanted over $400 for a 1/2 ton crew cab lease. they only push the little quad cab trucks with deals. but if you have kids thats not enough room.

i got the ford for alot cheaper and its a true crew cab bad ass truck.

I really hate to admit this since I generally HATE Ford and always have but the newer F-150s, especially with the EcoBoost, are damn nice trucks and a hell of a lot of fun to drive. I was honestly shocked the first time I drove one of the EcoBoost trucks. It immediately made me think of the jaw dropping performance that they squeezed out of the Turbo V6 Grand Nationals in the 80s. Proof that you don't need a big V8 if you want power.

The interior of newer Ford vehicles left an immediate impression of quality as well. Nothing has that cheap feel to it and all the computer systems and options really work great.

When I was looking I could get them around 300/month for a 4.3L one and a little more for a 5.3. Double cabs were cheaper but yeah not much room. Toyota has the best double cab as far as useful space.
