    Re: F250 6.2 V8 vs F150 Ecoboost

    That does seem unusual based on what I have seen on the lots. Of course, I guess you could order whatever you wanted if didn't mind the wait.

    This is what I am torn between 18" wheels with cloth 40/20/40 or 20" wheels with leather buckets.

    I have an FX4 with leather now, but they are running around $9500 off on the 302A packages for some reason.

    Here is one found this morning. I don't see any mention of what tires/wheels are on it. What does your 2011 have?

    We haven't gotten to a bottom dollar price, but one salesman told me they were going $9500 off the sticker. This is the sticker on the one with pictures I attached earlier. You mean all F150 drivers...

    Re: F250 6.2 V8 vs F150 Ecoboost

    I got to looking at this one time, in particular the F250 due to a friend having one with a 5.4 V8 that he was considering trading, and read where it was "rated" to tow less than my F150. I "know"...

    Re: F250 6.2 V8 vs F150 Ecoboost

    The only structural difference is, as I mentioned, the hitch. It is rated for 1000 more lbs. My GVWR is 7350 and I am not sure if that is due to my max tow package or not.[/QUOTE]

    Re: F250 6.2 V8 vs F150 Ecoboost

    I guess my "common sense" approach to this would be that a Ecoboost with 3.73's can tow 11,300 lbs with Max Tow couldn't the same without the Max Tow technically tow 11,300 lbs? Is this a...

    I believe all of the 2014's I have looked at stated 36 gallon tanks. The 2015's have a smaller tank.

    Re: F250 6.2 V8 vs F150 Ecoboost

    From what you can tell, is the mirror change the only/major difference with the Max Tow? I have a window sticker from a Max Tow and it seems to have an increased GVWR too.

    Two questions:
    #1) How...

    I tend to agree...but...why is Ford showing a 1600 lb. increase with the 3.73 over 3.55? I don't tow daily and could very easily get by with either. I will likely keep a truck ten years or so and...

    I hear the same comments from others, but get a little hung up on the numbers on the tow chart. Looks like a significant increase by moving from 3.55 to 3.73. This will very likely be a truck I would...
