    I want an ecoboost 5.0 lol.
    I own a 2017 5.0 and have driven a 3.5 EB a lot. Both great engines. The 3.5 beats the 5.0 slightly on MPG and 0-60 times and pulls a loaded goose trailer slightly better. MPG towing was the same at 13-14 MPG.
    Sorry I have no experience with the sewing machine 2.7 ;-)

    I couldn't help but feel I was driving a ricer with the EB. Just terrible sounding.

    Perfectly trouble free truck that you love, with only 95k. Why not just keep driving the thing?

    Don't get your panties all in a twist, it was a simple, valid question.

    I just rolled 100k problem free miles on my 2011 F150 5.0..... I'll be getting a 5.0 on my next F150 as well.

    By most any reasonable person's standards yes.
