It will never be the same
im here looking for my love
Maybe the smaller ones.
No because it's a ford
It can & Then some! Unless you've owned an ecoboost you can't understand how powerful they really are!! Those Toyota lovers are only fooling themselves, Toyota is about ready to get out of the truck business.
How about an Ecoboost 5.0 or 6.2 V8.I hate the "buzzy" exhaust sound of 6 cylinders. And check out the 3.5 Ecoboost vs 5.0 V8 cold start on youtube.
I've a Colorado 2.9 l4, but really I think it spend a lot of gas! Like 6km/lt. I live in Chile. Here the gas it's rounding about 890 pesos the liter( like 1.80 dollars just the liter!!). So it could be a very helpful idea to bring that truck here and really prove how much it spend.
No no no no
At the service department where I used to work cars/trucks with the 3.5L were very rarely in for engine problems. Also, Fords willing to bet a 30-something year long best selling title on this engine... clearly they know something GM and Dodge don't.
No replacement for displacement
There's no replacement for displacement.
Nothing Will ever replace displacement never ,,,, when working with it not playing around kids
It only has a steeper torque curve and the torque comes in sooner than the non turbo v8s and not only does it have v8 power but it also has worse gas mileage than a v8.
Nope they cannot. No matter what they (ford) does they cant ever seem to get reliability figured out. To them it seems like as long as the person can drive it off the lot, their reliability is ok. Straight garbage.
Pssh dodge lol
Doesn;t outperform or beat the fuel mileage of the Chevy V8 and DOES NOT outperform the Hemi. But keep on believing Ford propaganda but I'll rely on experience with the engines.
Spent a lot time driving an ecoboost for work and it's a nice engine but when i get a new truck next year it will be a V8.
Forced induction can never be reliable
It's a simple concept....take a big block and a small block build them to the same power numbers the big block will out tow the small block and it will last longer....same with v6 and v8. I had a 4 cylinder car pushing 300+ hp on 20lbs of boost more power than my truck but put it in my truck and it wouldn't preform like my 50 less hp v8 would.
Americans need to finally learn how to downsize. You can't keep V8's vorever. I think its a step in the right direction.
Oi TB RENATO E Retifica JA DO MOTORES FOTO NOVO,,,
V10 Fords are a tritons, pos garbage 3v crap...How ever I do like the new 50 engines.
Tritons are phased out of the F150, but in use in the Expedition..
Toyotas I force v8 would eat this alive. Also notice ford still has the tritonv8 as an option still becaust the ecoboost is just crap.....
Its laughable to compare any engine to the piss poor tritons.
Technology can make power from smaller displacement, and credit to Ford for putting the fat basterd F150 on a diet.
But eco fryers are not for me, all the wizardry is dead when truck owners are tricked into accepting they need two less cylinders powering a two ton truck. .
5.0 will last indefinitely and I suspect weighs less than the v6.
no, they just require you warm up and cool properly, change the oil.
the 2.3L SVO turbo motor in one of my Jeeps has been through absolute hell, its seen 30psi when it was in the Thunderbird (killed mustangs btw), its been in lots of low oil pressure situations, high boost, stalling with a spooled hot turbo, and just generally beating the crap out of it.
ok, it leaks like a siv, smoke a little on startup, but it still runs like a champ at 15psi. Ford knows how to build a turbocharged gasser and theyve been doing it since 1979.
Lol replacement for displacement.. Yea right #fordjunk
Drew Carey that's why it is twin turbocharged with smaller turbos. Less turbo lag and a longer torque band
Umm, they require no maintenance Stephen, and if you drive it normally, the mpg is fine. If you keep it in the boost, you are going to drink more.
My supercrew Eco, 4x4 with 3.73 gears consistently got 21-22 mpg, oh and it would a run a 6 second boosted launch to 60, oh and it would legally tow over 11,000lbs easily. I would say that performance is exemplary.
I only got rid of it to move to a Super Duty Diesel.
The turbos are very unreliable and require a LOT of maintenance.
These tiny turbo v6s get worse fuel economy tan the V8s. The turbos are very unreliable and require a LOT of maintenance.
Torque at low rpm is what the ecoboost engines give you, pulling power. The newer v-8's torque is getting higher and higher in the rpm range. That's why ecoboost pulls better than the high strung v8's from fiat and government motors.
They are the most reliable, V8 or EcoBoost!!
That is the most stupid comment I have read in a very long time "boosted".
My 2014 direct injection V8 High Country Silverado does all i want it to.
So much ignorance in this thread. The turbos on these trucks have been a non-issue. They're not just going to blow up like everyone is saying they will. 90% of pick up trucks do fine day to day with 4 and 6 cylinders. 3.5 ecoboost>any other 1/2 V-8. Except the Blown lightning 5.4
It actually does out perform the Hemi.
Doesn't out perform the Hemi.
I'm with the majority V8 all day.
Not fully convinced on the turbo 6. Still prefer a V8.
Recently, i talk with my Ford saleman and he said the Tremor couldn't compete with the former SVT Lightning, even if they have close of the same hp and tq
Really????????????????????????? 90% of medium and heavy diesel engines use force induction (turbocharges) many go well beyond 1 millions without a turbo repair. The average turbocharger life with today technology is 300,000 miles to 400,000 miles when use with a gasoline engine.
The triton v-8 is only current use in the ford e series vans, expeditions, and navigators. The triton engines are about to be phased out, the expedition and navigator are switching to the 3.5L ecoboost v-6. The e-series are going to be replace by the new ford transit, show me proof of ecoboost engine failures and I mean pistons, rings, camshafts, VVT components, turbos, direction injection system, timing chain, etc. The systems that have had problems are the intercoolers and so transmission issues, of which are support systems not the engine itself.
Really???????????????????????????????they are manufactured by Honeywell, who also makes turbos for class A trucks engines manufacturers such as, cummins, hino, Detroit diesel, international, and many automotives manufactures. Name one insistence of a modern turbocharger failure, caused by poor design. Most class A trucks designed turbos go will over 1 million miles without repairs, and autos are designed to last on average 300,000 miles are more. When turbos are put in custom design applications, there life can be dramatically shorten, large engine manufactures design there engines with the turbo as a designed in part, which greatly increase the reliability of the unit. Ford has done its homework.
