Gonna trade in my 2010 F-150 Supercrew for the Aluminum Body F-15 2015 with the 2.7 Ecoboost 1st of the year.

The 2015 Ford F-150's little 2.7 EcoBoost V6 will be able to tow 8,500 pounds with 325 horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque. Official curb weight a 2015 F-150 SuperCrew Lariat, one of the larger models, is a slim 4,942 lbs. The current 3.7 base V6 is dropped for a 3.5, but the 3.5 EcoBoost and V8 from 2014 will remain.

It's Rumered to get 28-29 mpg in the 2WD up

Anyone else waiting to get it ?

I'm digging the looks. But will have to drive one before I commit to purchase. But I'm too close to have my 2012 paid off to think about buying a new one anyways

No way. As bad as performance as the bigger ecoboost got, no telling what the little one will get. Been very happy with my 5.0

Going to a special Ford test drive event next month. Looking forward to seeing it. Initial impressions on the F150 forums are promising. 4x4 going from city to city are getting in the upper 20's, some as high as 28, in the 2.7

I don't think I'd ever be happy with a 2.7. I have the 3.5 now and it's a beast! The only performance issue any of them had was not getting the 21-2 advertised without babying the truck. I don't buy a truck for fuel mileage anyway, if I was worried about that I'd buy a little Focus.

I had decided I was going to get a 2015 when I saw it but I'm thinking now waiting 1 more year to see if Ford will actually pull the trigger on the Bronco resurection?

I don't get these comments. Ive driven an ecoboost and a 5.0. The ecoboost will walk all over a 5.0 and do it twice as bad with a load.

The 2.7 ecoboost has more HP and torque(which is also available for a huge range from low to hi on the power curve) than the GM 5.3 up to the 2014 year model. People hear 2.7 or 3.5 liter for a truck motor and automatically think no way, but a twin turbos changes all that.

I don't believe there is a truck on the market that gets the fuel economy that is advertised on the sticker.

That said, let's just say you keep the truck 10 years and put 200k on it. If they 2.7 got 20, and the 3.5 got 16, the difference in cost of gas over 10 years at $3/gallon is $7500, or about $2 a day. If the 2.7 got 24 and the 3.5 got 18, the difference is still only ~$8400 for 10 years, or 833.33 a year.

That twin turbo gasoline 2.7 better be serously de-tuned if you plan on owning it 10 years. Gasoline motors are not designed to handle turbo chargers. The new light duty diesel would be the way to go for mileage power and longevity.

Maybe ford will change my mind this go-round but it'll take at least 10 years.

Maybe... I think its not fair to say the ecoboost motors were not designed to have turbos. I highly doubt all the internals of the ecoboost motors are the same as fords other naturally aspirated motors.

Are diesel motors stronger because they run on diesel fuel? No, they are designed stronger because they are intended to have more air/fuel crammed into the combustion chamber by a turbo. Same concept applies to a gas motor, its just that gas motors are not "typically" turbo charged here.

There are enough eco's out there if they were junk it would be all over everywhere. It isn't like these things are just in the trucks, they are putting them in everything.

I had a turbo car years ago and after a couple turbo replacements I sold it...these aren't the turbo motors of the past. These things are the real deal....yes, I'm impressed with mine. I love my past diesels but this is as close as you can get power/behavior wise without having all the maintenance costs that are associated with the new diesel trucks.

I'd REALLY question how well a 2.7L would hold up towing 8500 lbs.

All that is comparing engine displacement to max tow rating. Using the same ratio would generate...

5.9 (as in the cummins) with a tow rating of 18,500 lbs... seems reasonable.
6.0 (ford diesel) with a rating of 18,800... seems reasonable.
6.7 (ford or dodge diesel) with a rating of 21,000 lbs. which also seems reasonable.

The 2.7 lieter isn't comparable to the naturally aspirated 4 banger in my car, its a built twin turbo motor putting out more horsepower and toque than motors twice its size.

I have had my eye on the 15's for some time. I was told that it might be a good idea to wait a little while after they are introduced to purchase one in the event that there some minor problems that might have to be addressed once they get a few on the road.
It is a good looking pickup and I have heard really good things about the aluminum body.
Adios,
Gary
