I've seen the videos already. Keep in mind the first 150k was on a dyno. I still would like to hear from users in real life conditions first. Early reports on gas mileage have been very mixed with most not doing as well as Ford is claiming. All do agree it will get up and scoot. So will the 6.2. One user reported the 6.2 gets better gas mileage in his F150 than he got with the 5.4 in his '08 and it had more seat of the pants power then the Eco. That I find impresive, especially the improved mileage. I'm getting 18.5 to 19.4 highway and around 14 city with my '08 5.4 with 3.73 gears (the secret is eggs).
What I'm really concerned with is how it holds up over time. The torture test Ford did was mostly on a dyno which is not the same as real life no matter how they load it. Also, if the Eco is so great, why isn't it part of the SD lineup? Also, if something does go wrong with the Eco (and it has more to go wrong) once it goes out of warranty, it's going to cost an arm and a couple of legs to fix.If I had to buy right now, I would get the 6.2. However, I would rather wait a while to see how the Eco does. Of course, if I have to get an F250, the point is moot.
For those concerned about me using an F150 to pull my 330RLTS, I'm considering either getting the dealer to deliver it to a lot for me or renting a truck to haul it "home" so I can wait until the Eco has had a chance to prove itself (or not). It's still going to be as much as a year from now before I pull the trigger on buying the trailer. Another reason for waiting is to see what my tongue weight will be once I finish with it which will determine if I can get away with an F150 or if I will have to get an F250. Tongue scales only run around $200 or so.
