You will love your truck!!!
We had our 2012 ordered directly from the factory because the dealer could not locate the truck we wanted/needed in a 3 state area. So we ordered it from the factory (received it in less than 3 weeks - LUCKY).
There are a few things to check when you get a chance. If you happen to know the original
dealer that sold/serviced the truck head over there and ask the service manager to pull the service log, as services (other than warranty work) do not appear in the Ford database. You will get an idea as to how it was serviced (if they used Ford). Ask them to pull a warranty work log, to see what warranty work was performed on your truck, do not go by word of mouth.
Depending on when your manufacture date was (ours was Jun 15, 2012) and if it was manufactured before, I believe it was Nov 1, 2012, you may encounter a problem with the Turbo-Intercooler/CAC when driving in very humid weather. It is a know issue by Ford and they have taken action on this issue. You may want to read this post on the Truckinginfo.com site.
Ford: Moisture in Cooler Causing Loss of Power in F-150 EcoBoost Engines - News - TruckingInfo.com
It goes into detail. Being in Florida, we took our truck on its 1st 500 mile shake down between Clearwater and Maimi in June of 2012 and yes it happened to us 2x. We (DW actually) were instrumental in forcing Ford to acknowledge this issue, through her constant harassment.
They replaced our InterCooler/CAC with re-engineered/modified units, now standard on all installs, since Nov 2012, and have not had any additional issues.
It is a helpless feeling when going to pass a truck and the RPM's wind up to 3000 and flatten out (no acceleration or power). Oh and it was a tropical storm that we ended up driving through the entire way to Miami. The engine service light came on and the service-department printout showed that cylinders 4 and 6 were miss-firing.
If you do not drive in humid weather (like most of the southern states) you may not encounter it, BUT I would take the necessary actions to ensure that the updates were completed and get it in writing from the dealer. If you plan on driving in the southern states make sure everything has been done.
Since then NO ISSUES, performed GREAT in the Colorado mountains, and down to the KEY's in December of last year.
