If you’re going to lease it for a few years and give it back, get the EcoBoost. If you’re going to keep it for the long haul, get the Coyote. Those EcoBoost engines will get expensive when they blow headgaskets or the turbos fail.

Why can't they get 3 trucks that are EXACTLY the same except the engine choice?

The 5.0 with a turbo is the fastest

I had the 3.5 EcoBoost and it was a torque monster, but the first time I jumped on it and hit 100 mph and it shut down on me I was done. Also hated having a truck that didn't sound like a truck. I have the 5.0 now!

Why not put a better turbo and some aftermarket parts before we do the test. Not a fair test.

You gotta compare crew cab to crew cab, 2.7L was only an ext cab and the 5L was crew

Why not make them reliable??????

If that 5.0 L V8 came with turbo charging from the factory those other trucks wouldn't stand a chance!!💥🇺🇸

Those ecoboost engines maybe faster than the 5.0 V8, but are they more reliable, especially overtime?

Favorite part of that video was at the very end where you see the 2.7 with a trailer at the drag strip take off and the driveshaft breaks. Numbers look good but reliability feels better.

All three motors are fleas claiming greatness and in the real world underpowered if asked to work. On paper anyone of these motors have 2 or 3 times the power of push rod v8 of old. But head to head the old 300 inline 6 would drag every one of them backwards. Get a real motor like a 351 or 400 and see these truck crap themselves. I have hook that ecoboost on 12k load and it could not get out of its own way. Hooked a 78 with 400 and it pulled it like it was not even there.

Turbo charge the V8 Baby Einstein
It would be safe to say that the 5.0 power comes in at a higher rpm, so lower gears like a 3.73 or 4.10 would probably do it justice over the 3.22 or 3.08 gears it is probably running to let it higher rpm power band come in sooner.

My 2.7 didn’t come with an engine cover

Did they all share the same rear end ratios ?

These trucks aren't designed to be a race car.
5.0 best soundtrack.

Pentastar V6 Engine Factory (2017) Can a V8 Still Compete in a Turbocharged World? 2 days ago   09:03

Manufacturing of the 3.0, 3.2 and 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engines at Mack Avenue Engine Plant in Detroit.

The Chrysler Pentastar engine family is a series of aluminium dual overhead cam 24-valve V-6 gasoline engines.

For 2016, FCA released an updated version of the 3.6 L engine for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This engine now featured two-stage variable valve lift (VVL), a cooled EGR, a new intake manifold, new fuel injectors, and new coil packs. It also features upgrades to the variable valve timing (VVT) system, an increased compression ratio (11.3:1), lower internal friction and lower weight. The new engine also has MDS like the Hemi and will shut off two of its cylinders while driving and make it a v4 while cruising the freeway. These improvements help to increase power as well as efficiency.
