Hi All, I have been off the board for awhile (some family issues), and wanted to share a new to me 16 F150 Super Crew. Bought this in November, just shy of 21K on the clock.
5.0 V8, XLT (Base 300 package). I don't need all the tech stuff, just cruise, bluetooth, and satellite radio.

After 2500 miles, I am happy with my purchase. The Coyote is delivering 19mpg average (computer lies by 2 mpg) and has adequate power for my needs. The 6R80 transmission was a little sluggish in shifting when cold, but a firmware update seems to have solved that. The aluminum body is pretty tight, no squeaks and the doors shut with a nice thump. The back end is a little light, and traction control kicks in when the roads are wet. The Michelin LTX (stock) 17s are not very sticky. The ride is good for a pickup truck and is happy putting along at 75 on the interstate or around town.

I managed to get the service records from Ford's OASIS system and it had a solenoid replaced in the transmission at 15K and a wheel bearing replaced at 19K. Not major issues. Was serviced about every 7500 at the dealer for OCI and rotations.

I plan on changing the bulk oil at 25K mark, and putting in a synthetic oil and Fram XG and run until IOLM tells me to change. Has an 7.7qt sump and I drive 75% highway miles.

I miss my Sonata's 31 mpg, but got tired of borrowing a truck or paying for delivery on household stuff.

Last picture is after I added step rails/nerf bars.

The wheels are the stock painted aluminum 17 inch, but it has a chrome cover (has Ford oval) not sure if they were an option or a dealer add on. This was a Hertz fleet (corporate muckety muck) vehicle, according to Hertz, when I bought it. Was not in rental service.

Nice truck-- and welcome back --

There has been some debate here about using 20 or 30 grade oil in the Coyote...curious what you are planning?

Congrats on the truck. I'm old school, but if I were doing an F-150 I'd opt for the 5.0 Coyote as well. Hope she does well for you.

Sharp truck - I had 16 F150 5.0 Supercrew as a rental once and I loved it. Took it on a few 2.5 hour trips, the comfort was amazing and the engine is powerful and makes a glorious sound. Literally had no complaints or anything I didn't like about it.

Be prepared for single digit MPGs when towing even a modest load. Sharp truck, I like the red too.

Shame the turbos and the direct injection will blow up right after the warranty ends. /sarcasm

It's a 5.0, not an EcoBoost.

Yup, seen plenty of posts where guys got 13-ish towing 7000 lbs with the 5.0.

Sharp truck, Dave.

Personally I would commend your choice of 5.0 NA over boosted lil V6. I have driven a 17 2.7 truck and the power of those engines is incredible, but they are in boost almost all the time and have yet to convince me.

Enjoy...
