    Ed753's New 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew!

    Eight days; One-Fifty, as in 2015 F-150; how it started, progressed and ended in just over a week.

    It all started two weeks ago, I had to run to the post-office at lunch, and since my boss was on the road, and the Ford Dealer was “almost” in the path of my return route, I figured I’d stop by, kick a few tires, and maybe harass a salesman or two.

    As most of you know, I’ve been leaning towards the new F150 for several years; really dig some of the simple, yet unique features. In my mind the 5.0L was my first engine choice, but intrigued by the 2.7L, since my last F150 had a 5.4L – double the size, 12 years prior.

    Once I found out the 2.7L was only available with the shorter 5 ½’ bed, that all but sealed my decision on the 5.0L, since the dealer had a 5.0L Lariat SuperCrew handy I took that for a spin, noticeably “lighter” feeling than my 2013 GMT900 Silverado which is also a Crew-Cab 4x4, not saying it was all mass related, I think it was a combination of the more powerful engine and lighter chassis. (However the difference was more noticeable when I got back into my Silverado to head back to the office, it literally felt like I was dragging something.)

    In my conversation with the salesmen, I found out Ford just expanded pull-ahead from 3-months to 6-months; anything between now and March 31st is eligible, the wheels in my head start to turn……..

    I loved our Fusion, but after leasing my toy (The Volt) and buying the MKX for my wife’s winter-time security blanket, it was an EXTRA-extra car. Anyway the Dealer I was at had a very light selection of Lariat SuperCrew, and none with the 6 ½’ bed, which is what I was looking for.

    Anyway, I didn’t solve much in my visit, but I did learn of the expanded pull-ahead, confirmed my satisfaction with the 5.0L engine and nothing glaringly problematic in my review of the truck overall, so whenever, wherever a F150 Lariat was still the goal.

    Then Friday morning, I get a targeted offer e-mail from Ford; $1,000 Bonus Cash, X-Plan compatible (I no longer get A-Plan, since my MIL passed). So now not only do I have loyalty money for the Fusion, I’ve also got the pull-ahead (5 months); and bonus-cash, just like that, stars are aligning………. Game-On, full speed ahead, now all I need is a truck that fits the bill.

    Saturday morning I started spot-checking other Ford Dealers between our house and the cabin, where we were headed Saturday afternoon. One had several Lariat’s and a couple of them with the 5.0L and 6 ½’ beds.

    I Stopped by on the way to the cabin and had them run the numbers; with all of my incentives; loyalty, bonus cash (targeted offer) base rebate, and another $750 if I finance with Ford Credit, a grand total of $4,000 in rebates, along with X-Plan, roughly another $3,500, about $7,500 total off MSRP, but only the base $500 rebate and my $1,000 bonus offer could be applied to a lease; so the end result was 3 year 10,500/year lease was a painful $577/month with $720 DOD, that is a hard pill to swallow, since the Silverado lease was only $249/month.

    Monday I had the salesmen give me a buy price; $48,454.49 (which included tax) but didn’t include $350 for a bed-liner or $95 for All-Weather Mats, the MSRP was $53,435. After a couple days of back-and-forth, I sealed-the deal, I got them to throw in the bed liner and floor mats, as well as knock another $850 bucks off, for a final “OTD” price of $47,600 including the bed liner and floor mats.

    This one had all of my must haves; here is the link to the window sticker: http://www.inventory.ford.com/servic...FW1EF5FFC05895

    Then just today I finished the rest of my plan; a few weeks ago I bought out the lease on the Silverado from Ally for $27,800 and sold it today for $31,500.

    Nice truck! Are you sure that wasn't the 1 I took out of our showroom today?

    Blue Jean LB 5.0L with the 501A chrome pkg.

    Had to make room for the Drive 1 4 your community on tomorrow.

    You will love the 5.0L, smooth. The only quirk I have found is the down shift coasting down grade in cruise. I just think it could coast longer.

    Any chance you could post a pic of your payload and axle rating stickers?

    Re: Ed753's New 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew!

    I will say that the F150 is growing on me in certain trims that tame down the grill. The lighting looks fantastic at night.

    Congrats on going with the 5.0. I drove a 3.5EB and it felt great but was just "different". I liked the torque delivery but the actual feel of it was off.

    I think some of the lightness has to do with the electric power steering and the way that Ford has it tuned. Its the same way in our Flex. It makes it feel way lighter than it is and after driving my in-laws SRX, it amazed me at how light the steering in our Flex is. The SRX felt insanely heavy and like it was driving in 4 feet of mud. Flex feels like a dang compact car. For a non-sporting vehicle, I like the lighter weighting much more.

    Used truck prices are insane. It's almost silly not to buy new.

    Congrats on the new truckski.
