I did but my old 07 FX2 died a few days before my move from VA to TN and I have no choice but to get the 2020. I do love it my new truck.
Ahhhh, that makes perfect sense. Not a Ford guy, but love this F150. I plan to get another one in a few years to replace this one. Don't plan to own an ecoboost outside of warranty.

Why? Have you had problems? We have a '19 Expedition and the only motor available is the 3.5 Eco. We usually keep our vehicles a long time and we intend on keeping this one the same way. I've heard and read that you really need to DRIVE these engines and work them to keep them running good. What I'm saying is don't just putter around town in them. Am I wrong?

I haven't had any issues, but these motors aren't exactly the most reliable. Figure I can get the most resale if I sell it still with some powertrain warranty left.
