Reason I am not a high compression caliber fan.
Diesel guys would disagree
True....and I nearly opted for a F240 diesel, but i didn't have enough knowledge regarding diesels to pull the trigger comfortably.
when i was in the process of purchasing a new f150 two years ago, i purposefully sought out the 5 liter v8. i test drove two models and yes the ecoboost had a bit more “get up and go.” however i think with either engine, putting the truck in “sport” mode to delay up shifts will make more difference in acceleration up to 60mph than the negligible horse power difference.
i don’t know what the verdict is on long term durability of the ecoboost but i didn’t feel like paying 50k to be ford’s guinea pig.
Any increase in fuel economy and savings will immediately be wiped out when you have to replace those turbos. I still drive Ford's but only the naturally aspirated engine models.
Only time will tell. I will maintain it at the recommended intervals. However, this is the only available engine option for a 2015-2018 Expedition EL 4WD.
