2.7 ecoboost 4x4

having a look at the ford website and a brochure, it seems that you cannot get the 2.7 ecoboost with 4x4 in most of the trim levels. and the 2.7 is not even available in lariat, etc.?
thought it was touted as the little engine that could?
I was pondering giving it a shot if I bought a new one, now its looking like I cant?!?

I just built a XLT Crew with 4x4 and 2.7 and a Lariat Crew with 4x4 and 2.7. You have to change the options like a 5.5' box etc. if you play around with it long enough you can get what you want. If you really can't get it to where you want on the site call your dealer and ask if they can configure it that way IRL.

thanks.
yes you're right. I went back and tried again. cant get it with the 6.5' box and screw and 4x4. but can get it with 5.5' box and screw and 4x4....
or any of the above combos with 4x2...
seems weird to me.
screw with 6.5' box is not that common but it is the ideal combo in my mind.
not at the point of wasting dealers time yet, so I didn't bother calling/talking with them.

My 2013 FX4 4x4 was a Supercrew with a 6.5 ft box, ordered no problem, but it had the 5.0L. Things may have changed though, but that was a good configuration, depends on your needs I suppose.

Love the 6.5ft box. Much more functional the 5.5ft on most SCREWS.

I always feel a bit sad when I remember that the 2.7, exactly half of my 5.4 has more power.

yes but you cannot get that combo with the 2.7 which I find odd

to be fair though the 5.4 should get a couple of turbos before compareing them

turbos ARE the replacement for displacement .. big time

In response to the actual topic it appears you cannot get a Supercrew 4x4 w/6.5ft box and a 2.7L. It defaults to a 5.0L.

5.5ft box or get a Supercab and you can get a 2.7

It's a sign, get a V8.

You'll get better gas mileage too, and it'll last longer.
