The rule of thumb is that when a vehicle has a salvage title it's worth at least 33% less. This truck is mid to upper 30s with good title. so the salvage should bring it down to mid 20s.

really should be 3.5 eco v 6.2. If you want it to feel like a truck, then skip the mustang engine. Since you already have the f150 in the household, go super duty. The 6.2 is a great engine.

Incorrect. An ecoboost is the chuck norris of engines and therefore the horsepower curve is too fearful of the ecoboost torque curve and doesnt dare cross it.
