You can get a loaded XLT for $35k. Trust me, I shopped all over and those are the best numbers you'll find. I ended up finding a used one with the max tow and saved myself some coin.
I love it for an everyday driver, coming from my old f250 its like a Cadillac and race car all in one! Great truck, and I don't regret going to the half ton (yet). I only trailer 11k lbs around 15-20 times a year so I justified the f150 to myself. I only pull more than that 3-5 times a year. Not sure what I'm going to do for those times yet, ha!
i was looking at an fx4 with the 402a option group. i want the air cooled seats, navigation, sunroof, im not even concerned with towing mileage, because im keeping my old 96 f350 to do the towing, the f150 will be a daily driver, not really towing much at all. i thought the same things when i drove, it feels like a cadillac and race car all in one!.
