Hopefully this one makes a sticky and Ill start


Fuel mileage. I got the XLT with CoPilot 360. Im on the road a lot and I have come to enjoy the BLIS systems. I got the hybrid because, well on the road a lot. White because its my favorite color on a vehicle despite all of mine being black since 04, and that is more than a few vehicles. I am not worried about the 2k towing because that is more then enough to haul my Harley or golf cart and if I need to really pull something I still have the (Time to start a never ending argument) best diesel of all time, the 6.0 PS in a 350.......What is sad is that this 'base xlt' has more bells and whistles than my KR 350 ever thought of......Didnt mind the hybrid system because it has been in the Escape for awhile and is proven and my dealership does a lifetime powertrain on all new Fords........And as this is will be my DD that Ill keep forever I decided against a full loadout of other things that will break and went with what I had to have....Cruise, Keypad, rear window, tow hitch and vinyl floor mats.......
THANK YOU FORD FOR BRINGING BACK AN ACTUAL SMALL PICKUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what did you get and why?

P.S. Also Ford you can kiss it for NOT putting cruise and a keypad as an option on the XL
I ordered the 1st Edition, Spark Red, AWD 2.0 L EB w 4 K Tow... Reasoning - I am betting on future value for the 1st Edition, even though the "pundits" argue against such. My thoughts are that this FORD, a well loved Truck Mftr is re-introducing the Small Truck into the market - and it is having an impact... in a way a bit similar to the Mustang in the 60's... but that was a TOTAL start up market! I also wanted all of the Features that come with the entire build out... as this may be the last vehicle I ever purchase again... I want to be in total comfort. And the best value that is surfacing these past few days.. the mpg is much better than I had anticipated - overall 29.

I do have a question for y'all... this 8 speed does not have the +/- Triptronic shift... I love using such, for downshifting to a stop (had a 2015 BMW X3 w 120k miles and never had to change out the brakes!) ... open to opinions as to using this "dial shift" for manual adjustment to lower gears for same effect - smart or "not such a good idea?

Hybrid Lariat Luxury in Area 51, no standalone options.

Maverick, because this appears as if someone quizzed me about what I'd want in a vehicle and how much I'd be willing to pay and then designed one to match. Initially ordered an Ecoboost due to not understanding the difference between E-CVT and belt and pulley CVT. Switched as soon as I found out how the E-CVT works and that it's covered by the hybrid system warranty. Lariat Luxury because I want tech equal to my '18 Honda Fit EX--in particular the lack of adaptive cruise would be a dealbreaker. I also like push button start far more than I expected. Area 51 because I'm too cheap to pay $400 for a color and I want a color rather than a shade of gray. That left me with Velocity Blue and Area 51 as my favorite free colors. The deciding factor between them is something farther from the color of my Fit since we're keeping it.

Lariat First edition hybrid, Area 51. I am 64 and never bought a new car. I want to start driving around the country and visiting the national parks. I was looking for used hybrid highlander but they were 40k. 1 want to bring my ebike and have the utility of a pickup truck so the moment I saw this I realized this was a great deal. Decided to splurge and get a really nice truck. Will pay it off in 3 years with no interest. I have had several Toyota hybrids and have had great experiences with hybrid motors. I thought about all wheel drive but have used 4wd two or three times a year at the most. I decided to go with the mileage. Looking forward to getting it, whenever that will be.

XLT, Hybrid, Cactus Gray, Inverter, Trailer Hitch, Co-Pilot360, Spray-in liner.

Hybrid for the mileage, inverter and hitch because I need them, Co-pilot because I'm getting old, spray-in liner because I intend to keep this one for more than my usual 10 years if ... you know.

Cactus Gray? ... Well, I live in a dirt road neighborhood in a paved town. I've seen cars with similar colors that don't seem to show the dirt so much. I hope that works. Plus, my daughter likes it and she'll probably get it if I croak. (Did I mention I'm getting old?)

Hybrid Lariat, Co-Pilot 360 Assist, 18" Black Wheels, Carbonized Grey.

Too many things I absolutely needed in my next vehicle... Push Button Start, Lane Assist / Braking, Keyless Entry etc... only thing I didn't get was the sunroof because I need the extra inces of headspace.
