My dad picked up a 2017 F150 XLT Sport 4x4 and it’s his first new to him truck in about 20 years! Last pick up was a 98 ranger and rusted apart a couple years ago. I looked it over and it seemed like a great well taken care of truck that was in very good condition with 27,000 miles. It’s fairly well equipped with out jumping into higher trim levels and he is not a fan of leather seats.

2.7 EcoBoost
Sport 4x4 package
LED tail lights
Blind spot monitor
Heated cloth seats
Trailer back up knob on the dash
Sync 3 with navigation

My parents are out of town so I have been driving it and hauling a few things that do fit in my Honda. Also before he signed I spotted some very minor damage in the bed side that 99% of people would have never seen until after they bought the truck. He got some money knocked off for that and I took care of it at the body shop

Great color and options! I hope somebody doesn't come in here and say he should have gotten a Toyota Camry with a small trailer....

Nice, there is one in the lot at work and I like the look of them. Looks much better without the giant chrome grills the other models seem to have.

Ummm, I hope he can but I bet he won't. wink My gen II 2.7 won't get close to that with 3.55 differential ratio and the 10 speed transmission. Best I can get cruise ctrl active @ 70mph and unladen is about 23.

If it was my truck I would like to also have the 20 inch wheel and tire combo along with push to start. The other day I came out of the hardware store with my hands full and I had to fumble around for the key.

Also I have pictures of the minor bedside repair. All mouldings, taillight, bumper, gas door, and wheel opening mounding had been removed for paint. No tape lines or peeling paint down the road.
