We're considering trading-in our 2011 Ram 2500 ST CC 2wd for something a little nicer with 4wd. The original plan was to get an end-of-year 2014 Ram 2500 SLT w/6.4 Hemi for less than $40K... However, my TV is my daily driver & the 2015 F150 Ecoboost would save me about $750 per year on gas...

Does anyone think it will be possible to buy a 2015 Ecoboost w/HD package & Max Tow in a trim level that keeps it under $40K? My concern is that initial demand will be high & therefor Ford will only sell the 2015 Ecoboosts with the pricier trim options...

I bought a 2013 back in April that only had 6k miles on it. Platinum package for $40k.

Don't count on the 2015 EB 150 being to cheap at first. I test drove one last weekend. National display trip to Ford Dealers. It was a loaded Lariat. 54k suggested list. Ford factory rep stated this would be close to actual price asked but has not been finalized by Ford yet. I drove the 2.7 and 3.5 EB. I'm impressed.

Not sure about the 15s and if you're including trade but when I bought my 12, I think it helped that I researched all the smaller local dealers first and then showed up at the big Ford dealer that we have here with a clean trade, title in hand and the VIN number of the Ford I picked out from a different dealer.

I gave them the number they'd have to beat (and by how much) and it was that easy. My trade was worth 7, they gave me 17 but that also included a 1 month loan through Ford Credit (which I promptly transferred to my CU). As it turned out, all the trucks that this dealer has parked on the hill, they didn't have one with the max tow package so they found one 3 states away, sent a guy out and trailered it back at no charge to me. So I think that number is doable.

If it matters any...still very happy with it. I had some bearings replaced under warranty up front and all four of the original tires have been replaced at my expense due to broken cords (at four different intervals). Discount Tire thinks I got in on a bad batch. I also live a mile down a gravel road.

Not sure what a LTZ LWB options are. Are they like a King Ranch of Ford Platinum packages?

LWB - long wheel base. LTZ - trimmed out , leather , nav , heated/cooled seats etc. The options vary.

I own 2013 EB Lariat super can. Load package, tow package. 3:55 gears. Walked off the lot around 38k. Love the truck. The 2015 I test drove has 20 hp more with equal torque gains. Being lighter gives a much quicker acceleration feel. It's quite too
