I had a 17 Lariat supercrew 4x4 for a work truck and loved it so much I purchased a new 18 for my wife and one for myself.

Both are 2.7L, FX4's and we love them. My mother retired from GM, so I have been a huge fan of them until I drove the ford company truck. I added a level on mine and put 18 raptor wheels and tires on it and it knocked it down about 1.5 mpg or so average but still am fine with it. The pulling power is impressive as well with my 21' center console cat.

So we went with the 3.5 EB and have been very pleased. We also considered resale and felt the 3.5 EB would have an edge.

However, if I was looking for a daily driver to role up miles on and wasn't worried about towing and resale.. that 2.7 sure was nice.

I did recall some conversation about the older years having issues with the way the injection was configured. Can't remember... just remember enough to ask the question.

The older EB's were Direct Injected only so no fuel ever hit the back of the intake valves which caused them to have build up.

The newer ones have Port/Direct Injected (according to rpm's) so they will keep them cleaner.
