    You really gonna start a pissing contest over this?

    I apparently missed the select A or B option, I thought this was more of a conversation type thing, or at least that's how most threads on here go.

    Gonna wait 1 more year to see how the 10 speed works in the 2.7 and 5.0 litre.

    The number of complaints based on how many millions of EB's sold is very small. Ford has actually increased their market share with these new trucks.

    If your that sure of them then buy one best I can tell you, I'm happy with my 6.2 L F-250 so I don't worry about Ecoboost crap

    It is amazing what they can get out of little engines these days, but I agree there's still no replacement for displacement if you want durability and reliability, especially long term. If only keeping for 100k miles though it likely won't matter.

    No experience with the 2.7 or the 5.0. I have vehicles with the 3.5 ecoboost and the 6.2. Both are 250s. The 3.5 is a little powerhouse. The torque seems like it is always there. The 6.2 has to be revved out to get into the power. Once you get it wrung out there is plenty of power. I wouldn't be afraid of an ecoboost. Only thing is they don't handle high load low speed very well. Ford says no snowplowing with an ecoboost.

    Isn't that what you'd want in a hd work truck? Interesting they'd put that in a 3/4 ton.

    I wasn't aware of the EB being offered in the super duty trucks.
