That "little motor" will out preform the 5.0, get better fuel economy, and last just as long.thing is truck has the 2.7 ecoboost, great mileage but i am worried about life span . wanted the V8 ,I do not know if i should settle for the little motor . What engine is in your truck? $15,000 off list price ,but if it cant do the job then its a big mistake for me.
I have the 2.7 in my personal truck and had the 5.0 in my previous work truck (had the 3.5 before that). The only thing the 5.0 does better is the way it sounds.
There are some good 2.7 F150 groups on Facebook with tons of people towing 30' travel trailers or running 35" tires with no issues.
