Intersesting F150 engine comparison...

Found this article and thought some might find it interesting...

Bruce, thanks for the article. It mirrors my experiences with my '10 F150 w 5.4L and my '15 w 3.5 Ecoboost.

I found it interesting that a V8 sound is piped through the economist stereo.

The fake engine sound thing is unfortunately popular these days, and (IMHO) a terrible idea. There's a hack for disabling it in the F150.

Hi from AZ. . . my '11 Ecoboost F150 has 90k on the clock, including the 14k to AK & back last year pulling my FC28, & I still like it ! ! The 'issues' have had nothing to do with the motor (steering box, front shock/struts) When the time comes I'll buy another !..........regards, Craig
