Weight it, surprise follows! You can bend your head around the factory ratings but a Cat scale will give you a solid result. KM

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.
Font Ticket Number Electric blue Monochrome
Rectangle Font Signage Ticket Advertising

Handwriting Font Carnivore Cat Paper

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

And 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

I keep tending to look at the RC by habit. I have been corrected, thank you! KM

Yea, that's what I love about Ford.
They'll let you have any drivetrain in any trim.

XL can even get the Hybrid 3.5
But admittedly, you have to have 4 doors
Having grown up in a time when only rare work gang trucks had 4 doors, I still find it difficult to consider them. KM

I live in a smallish city but went my oddball ways. Loved and owned small sport cars and sedans, but usually had a truck to haul bulky stuff. All the time I owned Fiats and such an old 1961 F100 unibody was also in my driveway.
