2016 Ford F-150 XLT 2.7L
I’m not exactly sure how to figure it out, so I the GVWR is 6500 lb, so I subtract the payload right? And that’s the weight of the truck?
My 2013 with that kind of calculation puts my 4x4 screw XLT at 5829 without me in it. I guess the 3.5 and steel body adds a lot of weight. I’m going to have to put my truck on a 91 Octane diet to get it to feel lighter.Yeah I just don’t know where to weigh it. If my calculation is correct I’m sub 5000 lbs. like 4900 without me in it.
I’m pretty sure the difference between the newer 3.5s and 2.7 is like 500lbs give or take.My 2013 with that kind of calculation puts my 4x4 screw XLT at 5829 without me in it.

No I have not driven a well tuned 3.5. I’m comparing my moms stock 3.5L to when my 2.7 was stock.Have you driven a well tuned 3.5?
Don't get me wrong. I love the 2.7 and pulled my toy hauler all over America with that drivetrain. Incredible truck. Still have 2 of them in the family fleet.
But a well tuned 3.5, at least Gen2 as far as my experience, doesn't have a perceptible lag. It's frisky and ready at an instant. Of course that's assuming you aren't cruising at lug rpms.
Attached is the scaled weight of my PB (6600#). This weight includes the added Undercover tonneau and Bed Rug bed liner, everything needed for towing, including the hitch and bars, full tank of gas, and both my wife and I. The GVWR is 7350#.Might be able to weigh at scrap yards or dumps if some are closer than a cat scale? Not as precise though I don’t think.
No idea what mine woulda weighed stock. Sticker math says 5,353.
But in daily trim, which is what is actually useful to know for the real world, I am 5,650 lbs full of gas but empty of humans.
Junk, child seats, bed mats, ties and covers seems to add up quick. Oh and the sunglasses in the overhead storage.
So I know my payload is 300 less than sticker says, but 1,300 still works for me.
I witnessed the very granular effort that you made including the multiple mental calculations going through your head before the truck was even built.Attached is the scaled weight of my PB (6600#).

This weight ticket is with trailer hitched but with the WDH bars connected.

The first weight was $12.50. The two subsequent re-weighs were $3.00 each.
Yeah so my truck is about 500lbs heavier, but I have 4x4, and supercrew.May as well add mine for comparison sake. I know it's a RCSB 2WD XL, but it does not hurt to know the extreams.

Compared to mass-hole mine is 1000 lighter on the front and 800 on the rear.
On the 2.7 compared to 3.5 remember the 2.7 is only offered on the lightest version fewer base options, 3.5 on upper gade versions adding more options and weight. KM
No you dont. You can get a 3.5 in any trim. The only thing you cannot get the 3.5 in is an RCSBAnd to get into a 3.5 you need to go up to a Lariat and more base options. Your truck will be lighter than a similarly optioned Lariat and 3.5, most of the weight is from options included. KM
