It seems a lot of FORD technicians are interested in part throttle performance and not simply wide open throttle power.

Crazy isn't it rated less horsepower and torque then the 5.0 and 3.5L Eco Boost but IMO the 2.7 eco feels much more responsive then the 5.0 and 3.5 eco!!! Very Happy Very Happy

And FWIW the bone stock 2015 Super Cab 4x4 with the 2.7 eco i have now was faster in the 1/4 mile by 1 to 2 tenths then the 2011 Super Cab 4x4 and 2013 Super Cab 4x4 i had both with 3.5 ecos.

I drive a 2wd x-cab 2013 F-150 at work with the 5.0.

I love that truck. 21 mp hywy, great brakes, comfortable and nice stereo.

I have never towed a load with it nor have I driven or towed with a EB so I cannot compare.

I will say these new trucks are soooo much better than the ol' 90's trucks we used to have at work

I just traded off my 2011 F150 super cab 4x4 with a 3.5EB. Only looking at power, the EB handled my 28ft enclosed trailer with my hot rod, golf cart tools, generator etc. estimated weight is 9-10k. It also pulled my 5th wheel camper. The power in the lower rpm ranges was incredible. Now the suspension was another story... I thought is was fine until I towed the same load with a 3/4t truck. That convinced me to sell the F150 and, after some therapy, I can say I bought a dodge 2500 Smile

I test drove a '15 Ford crew cab 3/4 4x4 with the 6.2 then drove a '15 Dodge 2500 crew cab 4x4 with the 6.4, and was more impressed with the 6.4. Brought the Dodge home on a Wednesday and took the race trailer over to the track and even my wife noticed the difference in how the trucks handled the load.

My work truck is a 2008 F450 with a 6.4L PSD, it's too bad they have such a bad reputation because they pull really well. My truck is 12,000lbs empty and it pulls the hills for fun. I wouldn't own one on my dime but it's a nice truck to drive when I don't pay the bill LOL...I put a high pressure fuel pump in it in February when I first got it, it's worked perfect ever since.

I put a TS 6 position chip on it, best thing I've done to the truck. I only run it on 50HP or 70HP and it will pull up the big hills as good as anything on the road and still get me 15mpg (imperial not US). Empty I have seen up to 22mpg. That new stuff is absolutely retarded in price, I don't know how people do it.

I approve that message.lol

I haven't pulled my race car in the 28' enclosed yet but I think it'll top out at around close to 10K loaded up and headed to the track. That being said that's at the near max limit for my 2013 F150/5.0. I think I see a new diesel in my future next year...

Actually, interstate running 80, it gets about 16.8 and running 70 it averaged 18.4. Haven't towed very far with it yet to get a good idea of towing mpg.

Well that's better then Truck Trend got maybe they were mostly city driving!!!Smile Smile I do agree about the 3.5L Eco Boost towing good.My brother bought and towed a 2001 Mustang Cobra home from Michigan last year with a 2014 F-150 Super Crew FX4 with the 3.5L Eco Boost.We were passing people uphill on the Ohio Turnpike with ease,but it was a open car trailer not enclosed!!!Smile Smile

I'm getting around 13 city driving with it, which isn't much worse then the 13.5-13.7mpg that I was getting with the EB.

Dodge has moved over 400,000 trucks last year mostly in part to the low lease rates that they have offered. I know both Ford and Chevy truck owners that have switched to Dodge trucks because of the low rates. They like them but would not own one off warranty. The market will be flooded with them when the trucks get off lease.
