It's funny you mention that, because I was so upset that they are cancelling the Fusion that I was dead set on getting a Fusion until like last week. Titanium or Sport. It was supposed to be my form of protest on their decision lol. But then I remembered my mountain trips, camping excursions, my frequent trips to home depot, and the fact that I've used my SUV as a truck for the last 3 years, and it just made sense when I saw this beautiful STX package F-150 with imho the best grille and wheels available on the F-150 (except Raptor). It complements my Mustang so well to really tick all the boxes imaginable when I consider them as a duo.

The 2.7EcoBoost has impressed me. I hit 27.3 miles per gallon in 2wd on the highway yesterday, and timed a 5.7 second 0-60 time later that evening. The 10speed is magnificent. I was turning only 1600RPM at 70 miles per hour to cruise on the highway.

Belated congratulations on a great looking truck. The 2018 refresh is the best looking iteration of Ford trucks since the 04-08 models IMO.

Thanks! I live in downtown Philly and my truck is averaging 21-23mpg! Get an easy 27mpg on the highway. Pretty amazing for a vehicle this size.

Re: My new 2018 F-150 STX!

I almost bought an 18 STX Supercab 5.0, but I just didn't need a back seat. No RCSB STX for 18, So I traded my 13 STX 5.0 for a 2018 Mustang GT 5.0 A10. What a beast.....

Gorgeous!! My one-two punch is the 18 STX and my 05 Mustang GT. Between the two vehicles I feel like I have every single niche of vehicle satisfied. All my needs or potential needs are covered in 2 vehicles, except for overwhelmingly good fuel efficiency/hybrid tech, which I don't particularly care about. Your Mustang is so beautiful though. My favorite color other than the deep reds.
