After long deliberation, a way to long deliberation we have chosen a new 2014 Ford F150 with an Ecoboost engine. Thanks to fellow Woody Boaters Shawn Brozovich and Seth Katz for clinching the deal. For the record I test drove everything, Twice, I drove dealers crazy and waited. The new 2015 F150 is coming out soon and they are deal’n on 2014’s This is a Platinum edition with a twist. The ecoboost engine already is delivering around 19 miles per gallon and best thing. The Boatress approves.. She hated the Silverado, I think more because it was a base model.
Shawn works for Ford Motor Company and made the process fun and well… we have a Woody Boater at Ford! Seth owns several Ford trucks for the Marina and I fell in love with them this summer. I rode the F450, F350 and F250, the F150 Ecoboost was the best fit for me since I drive a ton without a boat, so gas mileage is somewhat important.
The color is a cool Woody Boater brown, Almost a metalic Walnut color, with a Root Beer look. Officially called Kodiak Brown. We used a copper color vinyl lettering that sets it all off.
We de badged the truck, and added a color matched grill like the Limited edition to clean up the look. Why? Because the Limited edition doesn’t come in brown and has a strange blue interior.
