      This is the first vehicle I’ve owned where sport mode actually makes a very noticeable difference.

      If your 2.7L does not have the trailer brake you can install it yourself. The factory install is just over a $120 and it just plugs in. Its the exact same one.

      Great little review Tony. Thanks!
      Looking forward to some updates on towing and if anything has changed for you since posting this video. I'm in the market for a new F150 and I've been eyeing the 2.7L. Cheers!

      I went to the Ford Dealer and looked at two new 2018 F150 trucks. One had 2.7 and the 5.0. Test drive each one and hands done 5.0. The sales manager sat across from me and was doing his best to sell the 2.7. I told him only interested in the 5.0 he then keeps selling the 2.7. I told him he wasting my time and made a deal on the 5.0. I found it really strange they were trying so hard to sell the 2.7. Well Good Luck but a little google search on the Ecoboost engines and nothing but extreme oil leaks, turbo issues, engine issues.

      Oh boy, I hate to say it but the 2018 5.0, 3rd gen 5.0, was probably the worst decision.
      He may have been pushing the 2.7 because he knew that.
      There was also a TSB just released the other day for oil consumption which basically a new long block resolves. With this new 5.0 engine the whole 5.0 is more reliable than the EcoBoost has totally gone out the window.

      Hopefully Ford will get it figured out within a year or so.
      -Make sure to check your oil often!!
      Two of my friends are going through the shit right now with theirs, one is waiting for a long block which is on backorder.

      the 2.7l are just as reliable as the 5.0. you get more low/mid end torque (about 80lbft over the 5.0 at 3200rpm).. maybe he was just really wanting to get you in the motor that he thought was better? the 2.7 and 5.0 are both equally complicated and prone to the same types of issues. the borg warner turbos on the 2.7 are extremely reliable and used in many industrial applications. I did a google search on "2.7l ecoboost engine" and only got back positive reviews with the nano based 2.7l ecoboost getting more praise than even the 3.5l and 5.0l engines. and its cheaper than both.

      5:33 Im talking about the shifter next to the cup holders. Once you set it to drive do you find that its simply in the way. Ive been trying to decide if I should just buy the trim with the old steering shifter being more practical. Would like your opinion. Thanks mate.

      Great truck! I've had my 2018 stx 4x4 for only a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. I'm really impressed by the little 2.7 liter. The Sport mode is similar to the ECT power button that the Tacoma's have. Sport mode is a blast in the F150.

      I was about to trade my 2016 2.7 f-150 for a 5.0 for the simplicity until I drove it. The 5.0 is sluggish compared to the boosted 2.7. Sport mode really wakes it up and these trucks move!

      Thanks for the review Tony. I've spent my day looking at GM, Dodge and Ford. 90% of my time I'm not towing and hauling and the economy for the price point of the Ford 2.7 is very appealing. I figure i can use the 2.7 to haul and tow what I need, including a camping trailer.

      I tow occasionally a utility trailer for yard cleanup and tow a 26 foot camper trailer about 6-7 times a year for camping. Why do you recommend entertaining the idea of a 5.0?

      You basically two as much as I do.
      Stick with the 2.7.
      I feel the 5.0 is better for towing if you tow all the time .
      Turbo is great but if your in the boost all the time it uses more fuel towing. Vs a 5l.
      Just my experiences

      I bought a 2018 2.7L w/payload package & 3.73 gears. I pulled my 21' trailer with the dealer demo that had 3.55 gears. It had lots of power and the average fuel economy was 21.8L/100km [4 hr return trip with hills and head/cross winds]. Power was never an issue. Fuel economy was about 2L/100km better than my '04 Yukon but instant economy was much better climbing hills and bucking the wind and of course at a much lower RPM than Yukon. I found the handling pulling the trailer with the F150 was a lot of work compared to the Yukon. It seemed to react to every little bit of crosswind and whipped over every bump; Yukon handled much better. In the end, if you are concerned about fuel economy "pulling a piece of plywood" against the wind, buy a diesel. If you are an occasional trailer puller, this engine will do just fine for a daily driver. Mine gets the same or just a bit better economy than my minivan.

      I am really surprised at this as well. I tow 6000lb camper with my 2009 Ridgeline that has a 2 inch lift and 32 inch tires and it still gets 25L/100km when towing.

      I was actually going to buy a brand new 2.7L 4x4 supercrew xlt xtr today for $30 000 until I saw these comments. Thank you for the review.

      The 2.7 has plenty of power. I've started using premium full all the time.
      Runs way better . And a big difference towing.
      Mileage got alot better using premium fuel for towing and reg driving.
      But sucks the additional cost of fuel to get better mileage

      I just bought a 2.7 but I got the 3.73 rear axle and the payload package, so apparently it'll tow 9000 pounds with those. But I've got a 5500 lb dry travel trailer so probably won't be doing 9000.. But kinda nice to have the wiggle room just in case
