Hey gang! I may post some more detailed thoughts about the truck, but i just got myself a new F-150. This thing drives like ****en BUTTER. I am so impressed. Android auto on SYNC3 is spectacular. I am one very happy man. Complements my red Mustang well! Got all my bases covered; Mustang, F-150, Escape, '48 F-1.

3 year lease. 2.7Ecoboost is spectacular. 10speed is smooth. I am so so so happy with this truck. Thank you to John Kennedy Ford for being great! Its incredibly obvious why these are so popular.

Was that nail polish red color choice yours......or your better half?

I kid. Congrats. Nice combo.
Ha! 100% me. I feel like everywhere I look its black, white, gray, or navy blue pickups. Wanted something a little unique, or as unique you can be with the best selling vehicle in the world lol. Not pictured is the bed liner i added to this truck for which i scheduled an installation this week. So happy, i keep finding excuses to drive.

Congrats!

Why Ford need to produce a sedan, when they can put that big beautiful smile on the face of this guy with this simple, big, red and “macho” F-150 truck?

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.

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.
