Does it have the ecoboost? A guy at work has one and loves it.

Nope, the 2.5 liter. Used, you take what is available. All the ecoboost ones were over $1k more at least. I drove it to work on Wednesday. While it's no dragster, it gets up and moves when it needs to. After the Tracker, it's more than enough acceleration for the wife.

Feels like a much larger car. Rides smooth, is incredibly quiet inside, and pretty comfortable. All in all, it was a pleasant surprise driving the newer offerings from the big three. They have all come a long way in the past decade.
