Been MIA for some time. I racked up about 150K miles on my 2014 3.5 and ordered a 2021 2.7 XLT in space white. Picked it up and made the swap this past weekend. So far I love it, and slowly the mods will begin. Happy to be back!

Nice!
May I ask, why did you not buy another 3.5?

That’s pretty awesome. I’d like to do the same but my 13 only has 62k on it and has been almost perfect. A/C blend door is the only thing that broke so far. I even still have the factory battery still. It’s hard for me to get back into payments again. Congrats on the new truck.

It seems everyone has been so happy with the power output from their custom tuned 2.7s, which is what I care about most since its my daily driver! :cool: Also, I really don't need the tow capacity and I know they are slightly better on fuel. I loved my 3.5 though.

If I didnt tow here in utah, a 2.7 would most likely be my first choice. They have a much better track record for reliability, they are cheap, and they get better MPG for sure.

Great looking truck.

Was there any problems with your truck at 150? What stuff did you have to replace in that time?

My 14 only has 60 on it lol

We think alike. I don’t tow and I want that more reliable feeling. Better gas mileage is a plus. And at my age the next truck may be my last one.

No issues to be honest. Lost my horn at 145 that was it! Haha. Up until then, I did oil, plugs, brakes, and tires. Took good care of the truck and ran the right custom tunes, mainly my unleashed and 5 star tunes.

So....long story longer....I actually ordered in November of 2020 in lead foot. The lead foot was delivered in March. I went to check it out and next to it was a space white that had just came off the truck as well. I fell in love with the space white and re-ordered the identical truck in space white :LOL:. So after re-ordering in March it took about 2 months. The chip shortage held the truck up for about 1 week at the factory, so I wouldn't be too worried about it.

THANK YOU for the response! My Sales Rep said orders have been taking about 8 weeks, which reflects what happened with yours. He also said that it "appears" that customer orders are getting a bit of a priority over regular dealer stock builds. Ha, I think he may know something he can't pass along............

What brand tires did it come with? They look like Goodyear as best I can determine.
My '17 came with Hankooks. They were crap, two leaked air and the traction was not great. I finally got Ford involved and they split the cost of Michelins, which are terrific!
