Yeah! And the ecoboost has a higher tow load than the v8!

It'll be tough to ignore the upgrade bug if Ford keeps stepping up its game with the Mustang!

Brother-in-law just bought a 2011 F-150 a week ago, but he got the 3.7, no Eco boost.

I believe the F-150 has a few tweaks to increase longevity due to the increased load of pick-up duties. This probably includes more heat dispersing and a tweaked valve timing. In the past, the use of car motors in full size trucks did not go so well.

Well technically the 3.7 is a car motor because it started in the mazda 6 but also in the cx-9 sooo its more of a hybrid motor i guess... but as far as longevity theres no way Ford would emphasize it more on the F-150. The mustang is Fords second best selling car so they need it to be durable and long lasting. The dif manifolds are probably just to emphasize low end torque needed in a truck hence the 3hp difference.

To try to get more torque. But I think you can find more torque in better ways
