Nice truck! I'd be curious to hear what the highway mpg is after she breaks it in. I've heard it's anywhere from 22-25 mpg!

Hopefully Ford will put that engine in an Expedition soon.

When buying mine last week, the dealer said Ford is trying to get that motor as an option in a few of their other vehicles by as early as 2013. They're having a hard time keeping up with these in the trucks. Did not mention Expedition but if they're that popular, I'm sure someone is working on it.

I've heard rumors that the Expedtion is going to get killed off totally. I sure hope not, my family is going to need a larger SUV in a couple years and I would really like to see an updated Expedtion. I hope they don't follow the same path they took with the Explorer either. That is one ugly *** SUV now. If you can even call it a SUV, its more like a damn Taurus than anything else.

She chose on her own.

The Ford F-150 Platinum with the new EcoBoost over the Tahoe and Expedition.
No picture of Wifey with the truck though

A woman driving a pickup with a ball cap on and pony tail out the back of the cap does something for me

You are going to love it. I just passed 1,000 miles on mine and mileage is getting better and better. So far I have pulled a few x-45's, X-Stars, X-25's, and X-2's. You guys are going to be impressed.

Everything, it is their top of the line. I can't begin to list all the options.

Nice truck!
It's a 4x4 we'll pick the front end up with some wheels and tires!
