Bought a 2018 Lariat with 3.0 last Friday. Very excited!

white platinum metallic with camel/brown interior.
equipment group 502A
twin panel moonroof
3.31 axle
20" wheels

Here is a picture taken when they were on their way to deliver the truck to me.
The day after I bought it I put about 400 miles on it on a trip to watch my grandson play soccer. The trip was in a cold, drizzly rain the whole way. Total miles per gallon over the length of the trip was about 30.6 mpg. That was traveling 75-80 mph on the interstate and about 30 miles of in-town driving.
When the weather clears up and I can get it sparkly I'll send a better pic.

Couldn't be happier with the truck!

Do you have Michellins on your truck? I have seen good years on most but mine came with michellins and I have no idea which ones came with michellins

Michellins are ultimately better than Goodyear tires

I have Goodyear 275/55R20 OWL ALL-TERRAIN. I have similar ones on my 2013 F150 and usually get something over 40,000 a set but they do lack traction.

Yeah don't know why my truck came with michellins stock not sure if it is part of the tow and haul package, but I'm not complaining which is also weird cause I have the FX4 package so I would think it would have Goodyear ATs as well

Yep, at low speed anyway, I park my fx4 king ranch in a storage tent to keep it out of the snow, the snow builds up a hump in front of the entrance that takes a little 4x4 action to get over. My other make trade-in with all season summer looking tires in crawled over this but with the Goodyear all-terrain (?) in 4x4 it kind of wiggles and waggles until the diff lock kicks in. Shoving out the entrance kind of defeats the reason for having a 4x4. (actually I'm just lazy)!

Yes, the truck came with Michelins. Made me happy, as I run Michelins on everything I drive.
With those special painted.grey powder coated wheels really offsets the look for the half ton powerstroke. Imo that combination is stunning however can't say I wont replace them some bfg kos or Toyo mts at some point
