No you dont. You can get a 3.5 in any trim. The only thing you cannot get the 3.5 in is an RCSB
That’s true. My boss had a 3.5L in an XL with an 8 foot bed.

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

The annoying part is the used to have an RCSB 3.5L in the form of the Tremor but then killed it off.

Having grown up in a time when only rare work gang trucks had 4 doors, I still find it difficult to consider them. KM

Understandable.
But down here an F150 is often the family's stationwagon or SUV or Minivan.

They pull up to Whataburger and a crowd climbs out. Often more than the number of seat belts onboard. :)

You live in Texas right? Down there everyone drives trucks and they’re mostly f150s and you’re right, those are peoples “family cars” haha. I’m not from Texas but that’s how me and my family are. 😂

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.

Younger days, decades ago mind you, I tortured myself with MG's lack of reliability, but loved them.
Motorcycles were my preference though.

Probably explains my affinity for lightweight 2-seaters to this day.

Want to know something even worse then my truck being the for mentioned. Not the seat belt thing but I rarely put anything in the bed of my truck. When I do it’s well padded. I might have the only 2013 truck with not even one scratch in the bed. And it’s just me and the wife with 4 doors.

It'd be different if Ford wouldn't paint the inside of the bed so beautifully. That paint is just too beautiful to wrecklessy gouge.

This is my 3rd truck in a row that I'm deciding my approach to using it as a truck bed, but protecting the surfaces from visual scars.

Have any big farmers near you? I’ve weighed three of my work trucks I’ve been in. My 18 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4 weighs less then my 08 Powerstroke 3/4 Diesel 4x4 with the same tool load lol 😂. Never care to know what my personal truck weighed though.
