If you're intimidated with the complexity of 2 spark plugs, a twin turbocharged, intercooler, overhead cam engine definitely isn't for you. Promar's research and development team has been working extremely hard over the past few years to reverse engineer this complex engine and we are currently building this 5. I'm cool with basic interior package, just give me blue tooth and I'm good to go. But perhaps I'm wrong here. I will definitely test drive another one tomorrow to verify. That's why I said it was an older one, but I see your point.
There is still no replacement for displacement! Everything from the old 2v 5. I have a F250 with the 6. For a vehicle expected to last at least 250k miles, 72k miles is nothing. I will definitely test drive another one tomorrow to verify. Hello all, I just bought a 2012 f150 with the 5.
There was a signifigant difference between the 2v 260hp 5. You do realize there is a great amount of difference between the first 5. Additional major differences between the engines include unique heads that feature individual cam phasers for both intake and exhaust; the fixed-geometry turbochargers flow more and produce more boost 13 psi versus 10. Never had a lick of trouble with the '12 but it only had 84k on it when we traded it. Good choice on the 6. But since you asked, the 5.
My brother owns a fleet of newer F150's for his business, he likes the Ecoboost much more than the 5. Famously, the penny test pictured involves inserting a penny into the tread of a tire with President Lincoln's head upside down. But, no engine is good in front of a bad tranny and the 8-speed auto is simply a gem. All F-150s can now have Raptor power by checking the right option box. Probably not a bad choice among them. . Sucks about the tire, but at least you didn't wreck it.
But I will say the characteristics are obviously different between the engines. Reply Part 1: Chip, my experience with the 3. Reference: ллл -click- ------------------------------ -click- the pic' Goth 150 Thanks. But, at no point in the powerbands of both engines does the 5. Laden with a 3-ton trailer, it towed the load with ease.
Simply a wonderful duo in this truck. Because it's a smaller engine, the 3. I avergae 23mpg in city driving. I am almost at the 10,000mi mark in my 4th month of ownership. But there is really no reason to buy a 72k mile 5 year old truck for the same price as brand new just because it has an at the time upgraded interior and a couple options.
If you need to have a v8 I would get the 5l over the 6. I wouldn't think it was. So, all of this cake, but here's the real icing. Originally introduced with 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, the engine was upgraded with a more efficient cylinder head design and improved variable camshaft timing system, increasing peak engine output to 385 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque for the 2015 model year; the improved 5. The extended cab, long bed version has the same measurements, except its 235. I'm really not trying to ruin your hash, it's a nice truck and you're happy with it.
Both seem to be dependable. I haven't seen the article crop up for a long time and don't even know what searching I'd use to find it but I'm sure it's still out there. I'm cancelling my membership, been a member for 10 years and this is how you treat me? The regular cab, long bed edition is the same, but measures 213. Plenty of torque down low, but also breaths well up high. The EcoBoost wasn't completely silent, though.
Promar Engine's quality control is second to none. I drove it and it has more power and torque than mine, though I do not have the data, just from driving. Mileage and power are great on both trucks, the new one has a slight edge but the 10spd and slightly higher gears help with economy. Rex Roy Dallas—When the bottom fell out of the economy, pundits predicted the death of the full-size truck. I know the ecoboost Ford is test drove one. A pretty consistent 14-15 around town.
