Ouch! I was hoping to put an Ecoboost in the driveway in a year or two, but if that's the going rate here in the YYC, I think I'll look around first!

Tell me that's the sticker price on a fully loaded Platinum F150 EB! Surely with the discounts Ford has had lately a guy could do a lot better than that around here after hagglin. (I hope...)

We just got 2012 dodge 1500 hemi with tow package. Express package. 10,000 lb tow. MSRP 37000 we got it for 28000. Pulls a lot better than our 07 ford f150. Ford had 70000 on it and the cam sensor went bad and need a new motor. Just out of warranty ford knows this is a problem and won't fix it. No longer a ford fan.

Actually, if you're getting 12.5L/100km, that works out to almost 23 MPG. The 18.7 MPG that truck calculates would be miles per US gallon.

I got 20+ (U.S.) all summer with mine. You will love this truck. Mileage does suffer in the winter though. Engine needs to heat up. Tranny torque converter will not lock until it hits 105 degrees. Colder lubricants.

But it's an awesome combination of economy and torque when you need it.

Most of these guys sticker in the upper 30's to mid 40. Like anything, it depends on how you equip them.

Enjoy your new truck man!

I just traded my 2012 Ecoboost Screw at CMP in Calgary for a 2012 GMC Duramax if your looking for a good used truck. I haven't taken it in yet as they are going through it [GMC] as it was just brought in. The Ecoboost wouldn't be able to pull the 5th wheel we are looking at [ Columbus 320 RS] so the reason for the trade. The F150 should be there tomorrow though. It is a Lariat with pretty much a full load including nav and leather
