I picked up a 2015 with the 5.0 I was kinda torn between the ecoboost and the 5.0 but decided to go with the tried and true 5.0. Not saying either is a bad choice though, to each their own. I love this new 5.0, tons of power always when you need it, and with the truck much lighter ( well, a little lighter) than they used to be this f'n thing performs like a sports car. I did have an 09 with the 5.4 and this 5.0 Is in a whole different class than that. I just Put a custom stainless exhaust on and it sounds amazing. The power really kicks in after 3k rpm and in sport mode this thing is crazy for a pick-up truck!! .I am getting between 11 and 12l /100 on the highway. Strange thing is at 100 to 110 the fuel milage is great, from 110-125 is goes down and from 125+ it gets better? ( according to the DIC anyway) I should mention mimes a s/c 4x4 sport as well. Good luck with your purchase and keep us updated to what you go with.
