      3.5 eco boosts not gonna last like the v8. Turbos forcing power put of a v6 to perform like the natural v8.just cant see long term reliability

      The 4X4 is going to weigh at least 500lbs more.

      With the price difference between the two trucks you can easily install a twin turbo kit on that 5 liter and have 10k to spare.

      PLEASE TEST THE 5.0L with 3.73 axle ratio vs the Ecoboost I think the results would be more interesting and more viewers would appreciate it love the videos keep up the good work

      V8 for the pickup. Also bring back the Ford Excursion back in production with the V10 keep it big like it is. Who cares about the gas.

      Why where they idling so high we have took a 2011 3.5 ecoboost and went up to Colorado pulling a 10,000 pound camper and it idled at 1500 and did 8 mpg ?

      I came through your test miles twice this year,,heading for Utah and then the return. 4.2 liter NA 6 , F-150, Full bax about 1,000 pounds, large canoe on the roof. It did fine,, and my mileage from Grand Junction to Julesburg was 17 mpg. A little higher than I expected,, but likely the high altitude valve was leaning it out a bit.

      Towing capacity should be measured on longevity on towing not by which does it best. I never understood these videos really when they always test brand new and fairly new trucks this is not just based on ford trucks btw this is for all of them. Why not have someone really stress test all trucks on towing for over a year and see which one holds up best at max capacity towing in there relevant class.

      technically, and ford guys correct me if i'm wrong but the coyote is a true 5liter so it's a 305 and change cubic inch, they called the 302 a 5.0 but it was a smidge under

      Jacob M 2018+ the EcoBoost will do better, Ford messed up the 5.0 by giving direct injection so now it’s having the same issues the EcoBoost had for its first 3 years, hopefully that’s not the case in a couple more years

      Mr Kent always said he would buy the 5.0. Then he buys EcoBoost does this review and says go with the 5.0. Strange

      The V8 didn’t need to brake as much and got better fuel economy because of the weight difference. Not a real comparison

      The axle ratio difference is insignificant in this test. With the 10-speed transmission the gears are so close together so 4th gear with the 3.15 axle is very close in torque multiplication to 5th gear with 3.55s, less than 3% difference when you do the math. One lower gear in the 10-speed trans and the numerically higher axle ratio advantage disappears. The altitude and forced induction are far greater factors in this test than the axle ratio.

      Slap a supercharger or turbo on that coyote and the ecoboost wont have a chance.

      about 1 month ago

      GL replacing a water pump driven by a timing chain. Huge $$$. Any turbo motor will have a shorter life. V8 all day.

      To hell with that eco boost motor.

      I have a V8 coyote in my F-150 I run it hard if pulls hard it's strong it's quiet and we'll still be running when that V6 is worn out and dead. Those turbos don't last forever especially in a o consumers version

      Every time I watch comparisons like this I’m reminded of the bad decision I go with the 5.0 litre.
      I haven’t had any problems with it other than acceleration. It doesn’t do that well at all, unless you really rev it. Not even much torque down low. The 6-speed transmission shift points absolutely blow ars, which further exacerbates the sorry performance of the Coyote.
