F-150 Platinum

Just saw my first F-150 Platinum, 4 dr, 4x4, pwr leather seats, brushed aluminum dash and REALLY nice dash layout and, and everything you could think of, down to nice aluminum wheels.

No camera and I only saw it for a few minutes but WOW !

$49K new, $31K three years old, the dealer wanted to sell it, so I was told.

I really have not liked the looks of the new F-150s BUT that changed today.

I will keep my camera with me and see if it comes around again and start to save some more money for the retirement truck !

I like the limited 04-08 body style. It's like the bizzaro to the harley's. White light housings, rims, looks great.

Ecoboost FTL actually.
People who tow with their EcoBoost regularly have been reporting crappy gas mileage. turns out that they're turbo's are blowing up, they're spooling with no pressure.
