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.

Thanks BigDozer66

That is what I recall now. Do you remember if the 2.7 was direct injection only or both?

I think all of the F-150 engines are (except the 5.0L Coyote) and it might be by now.

I'm a Chevy guy. But I might have to look at the Ford now. They are putting the Raptor EB with 450hp in the top end F150.

I'd recommend it, even the 3.5 ecoboost they put in the 2011 model F150's will spank the pants off of GM's current 5.3 v-8.

I currently drive a 17 Chevy with the 6.2 and LOVE it.

It's going to be in the 2019 Limited which cost just about as much as a Raptor.

I've driven both and I'd take the 3.5 eb over the 6.2 any day and LOVE it.

But currently I'm still loving my 30 mpg ecodiesel too much to consider anything else.

I bought a 2018 F-150 with a 5.0 and a 10 speed auto. I think it's 395 HP. It's fast. Like driving a race truck. Took it to northern Arkansas last week. I got 22 mpg even driving in the hills. Could have got the V-6 for the same price but decided to go with the motor that's been around for a while. Love my new truck.

If you tow or drive at elevation, those turbo engines just flat out spank their competition.

I'm still getting used to hitting 4k rpms in the new truck while towing the TT. Never happened in the ecoboost...at least in Texas.

Big difference from the 13 mpg in the F250.
