yep, it’s a Canadian truck, no rust, speedo is correct, seems pretty common, I’ve found quite a few. Especially living close to the boarder. Also it has 1700 payload. Most of the short bed trucks I’ve found are 1400, i food. A HPDD but it’s in Seattle, payload is 2100

Just to note, I’m not sure if you’re in Canada or not, but that is a Canadian truck.

How did you know it was Canadian just off the picture?

XTR is the Canadian version of the FX4.

Yep XTR is chrome package XLT. Pretty much the bare bones XLT. Comes 4x4 or 4x2. No offroad package at all.

I bought a new 2012 F 150 Lariat Ecoboost. Has 137K on it. It has been the most trouble free vehicle I have owned. I was rear ended a couple of months ago and had a 4wd platinum rental that has the 10 speed. Transmission. Mine has the 6 speed. Wish I had a new one as economy is better but I still get 21 on the Hwy and have had literally no issues with mine. I normally put more miles in quicker time on a vehicle but I’m retired so I’m not putting 60 miles every day.

This is my 2012. I LOVE it!!! Although I think I want to get a diesel, like an 05 - 07, 6.0 powerstroke. I bought this truck with like 79k on it and it now has 103k on it.

Haha right! It does sound weird, but the 6.7's are expensive. Can't afford them. Don't know what I'm doing Gor sure.

I have found a 2012 SCREW 4x4 max tow. It only have 35k miles and is in really good shape. Now I’m usually not one to get anything that is first run 1-2 years. Now I know the Ecoboost came out in 2011, is there a reason to not get a 2012?
I bought my 2012 in Oct 2012 and now have 170k miles on it with the only engine problems being an issue with the turbo inter cooler in wet weather, but the dealer took care of it under warranty.
I asked the dealer service manager about the timing belt and he said some have issues early and some get 300k out of them. I’m going to keep driving it until I start to hear it.
Sounds like you got a good deal!

As Someone that had a 2011 SCREW 3.5, it had many issues. At 85k miles , blew the carrier bearing on the drive shaft, Timing chain chatter on cold startups (needed to be replaced), and the vlaves were also starting to stick because of carbon build up (when cold it would stutter at stop signs). I rarely had to tow. I ended up trading it in for a 2016 2.7 , had the issue in the heads were it blew through oil and ended up having the motor replaced (12K miles and oil changed every 3500 miles). Ended trading that it in for 2017 5.0 And have never looked back.

The EcoBoost 2nd Generation engine has evolved into an excellent machine. The first generation had some issues for sure. Recommend you look further into the changes that were made before deciding.

I have a 2012 FX4 ecoboost. Bought it new in 2012... currently have 145393.0miles. Constantly towing close to max capacity, heavy offroad use, and just recently rescued a Ram3500 with fully loaded 45ft trailer from a muddy culvert with no problem. I have no mods and couldn't be happier with its outstanding performance. Only issues I have had is a blown turbo seal, and failed fuel regulator.

Typical report. The guys that have the best luck with the Gen1's are USING the trucks.
Or put another way, their turbos and wastegates are ACTIVE much of the time. :)

Thanks guys for all the reply’s. The dealership with the 12 was firm on the price and wouldn’t budge. But I found a 14 same specs as the 12 but 64k miles for under 20k pick it up tomorrow. Needs tires and windscreen to be good to go. I also have factored in timing chain funds.
