2013 Ford F150 Ecoboost or 5.0 V8?
I am in the market for a new work truck and would like the opinions of the learned members here. My '01 Dodge Ram 5.9 diesel has 303,000 miles. I rarely tow a trailer anymore and am looking at the Ford F150. My main question is should I chance the Ecoboost or stick with the more tried and true technology of the 5.0 V8. I like the idea of the twin turbos Ecoboost, especially considering that I normally drive at elevations between 5,000 and 10,000 feet.
There is no shortage of people on the internet forums having problems with the Ecoboost, but I am sure that like anything else, it is typically the people having problems that are posting. The one thing that I do find curious however is that the local (Denver) dealer's inventory is virtually void of Ecoboost equipped trucks. I don't know if this is because they can't keep them in stock or Ford is not making them. Thanks for your thoughts.
