F-150?????

k guys ford is giving some crazy rebates on F150's so i had to go look at one to see how much a base model crew cab would cost....

driving my truck now (10mpg hopefully) to and from my job sites is fun but is costing me a lot of money.. it cost me 120 bucks to fill up 3/4 of a tank today

the one i went to go look at was a 2008 F150 crew cab. It is the work edition one but had power windows, grey cloth int. cd player, 6.5 foot beed and the tow pacakge.. it did only have the smaller V-8 in it but the MPG is better on those than the larger 5.4L

price out the door was barely over 18k on a 30k truck

tell me what you guys think? what do you think of the smaller v-8 engine... i need something smaller than my SD to drive to and from job sites and occasionally bring some material to the sites like wood or cement.....

if you have any experience with this truck let me know.. i need to make a change and i with these big rebates this is looking pretty tempting

Yeah but you gotta look at the fact that you are gonna have a payment now, plus you still gotta put fuel in it, and you got one more vehicle that you have to pay insurance on.

Doesnt' seem like youd be saving any money to me.

well its not only for MPG... i need another truck because i cant really put crap in mine now with the stacks in the back.. and its way too tall too really do any construction with it anymore.... basically its not practical for that line of work....

right now i spend anywhere from 600-800 in fuel a month

yah ill be adding another payment and insurance but the payment with ) down is under 400 bucks a month.. add insurrance $100 (guessing here) thats only 500... if i can drop my gase by at least 1/3 the new truck wont pay for itself but it will bring it down some...

supposedly it gets 17 city and 19 highway... i know these are not accurate so im looking to see if anyone else drives one to let me know what the actual MPG are..

if i can get 7mpg more than my truck now and pay less money to fill it up its a win situation

yah im keeping it.... its prob gonna sit 6 days a week lol... it is a lil PITA to drive that big *** truck around all the time... it doesnt fit anywhere.... so more than likely ill end up driving the F-150 more than the SD

I used to have a 2006 F-150 Reg Cab, 4x4 with the 4.6 V8 in it....I got about 22 on the highway, and about 16 or 17 around town. Loved the truck actually, but I traded mine in for my PSD. The only thing that takes some getting used to is they feel underpowered.....Especially the longer wheelbase models....They are heavy trucks.
