M3 gets a BIG brother

I've been looking for a big car as my second vehicle for a while now. Test drove the 6.2 SVT Raptor but realized that it was quite "slow" on paved street which is where I would be most of the time. This 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost can really move and the interior is way, way better than I ever thought a truck could be. The inside is as nice as my friend's new Navigator !!!
Looking forward to the snow this winter

looks good though i'm not loving the wood in the interior, at all.

what tuning has been released for the ecoboost engines?

nice! I had my eye on the ecoboost for a while to trade my 2010 tundra in, but I decided I didn't need a truck anymore...The new f150 and their powertrains are the best that are out IMO....

I know the taurus sho and the ecoboost are different engines, but a quick glance at the tuning progress on the SHO's show a bright future for this truck.


What are your plans with it? lifting?

Great looking truck man. I test drove one with my parents since my dad was looking to upgrade his '04 F150. We test drove an '11 Limited with Ecoboost and it was optioned out. The engine feels amazing and I love how you can hear the turbos spool up from inside the truck. Interior was top notch, Ford has reeeeeally stepped it up lately. My friend has an '11 GT and just got a '11 Explorer and both of them are amazing inside. Congrats!

You've lost your damn mind. You really have to sit in one to realize how nice they are.

Nice interior; all except the bar-code label. Seems to me the dealer prep would have caught that one!

Nice truck. Is it really that much faster than the 6.2L Raptor? Gotta love the month of May and bugs in our fine Commonwealth...

It's a bit quicker on the street due to less weight and smaller tires/wheels, but what really sold it for me was the interior. The Raptor's interior did not felt like it belongs in a 40k~ car.

The fact that ALL that wood is fake is a real deal killer for me...

Love the truck though.

Yeah, back in 2006 before I got my E90 (to replace my 18-year old E30) I almost bought the 2nd Gen Lincoln Mk LT. That truck had a really nice interior.
