If you're that impressed with the 5.0 pulling a 4X4 screw, I can't wait to see how it tosses around a Reg Cab Short Bed!I love my 5.0! It feels quick and nimble, and sounds awesome! I dont like the way the tranny shifts in stop and go traffic but it has the manual button for that. I drive through a large city with heavy traffic daily so I probably dont get a lot of cylinder deactivation. Back in high school if you could get 1hp per Cubic Inch you were doing good. Now I have a 302 with 400hp and i love it!
looking at some videos of the older trucks, there is a lot of stuff in there.Woah, what! First I hear of this. What other options are available in this mode?
I want you to be prepared for a very very modest V8 sound. From the factory, the truck is relatively quiet. Although, it doesn't take much money to release the rumble you are looking for.I ordered back in February and all I have so far is a VIN. I went with a KR 5.0 3.73 after having 3 F150's with the 3.5 ECO. I am struggling with the long wait as I can't wait to get back to a V/8. No issues with the 3.5 but can't wait to step on it and hear actual old school engine rumble. My ears can't wait...
Pretty much my experience. I have 3.73 and am getting about 1 mpg less all around. 502A PB would be my preference too, but I didn't want to spend the extra $15-20K over 5.0 302A.Very happy with my 5.0 so far. I’m getting 23.5 in the highway and over 19mpg in the city. Guess I’m getting old, more than enough power and I have the 3.31 gears. I was concerned I should have held out for the EB. 10 spd really helps and mine has been butter Smooth after the first week of learning. I don’t notice CD at all. I’ve owned multiple Hondas/GM and could always tell when CD kicked in. The Ford has been seamless and I’ve been impressed that I can’t notice it kick in.
Again, very impressed. Sound is a bonus. Jury is our for long term reliability, but I’m optimistic.
I bought this truck as a holdover while waiting for my 502a PB order, but I may revaluate that decision now. I’m seeing more problems crop up with the power boost. It’s a great system, but complex.
I can confirm sport mode turns off CD. I have a Corsa dB exhaust (taken off previous 2019 3.5) and it sounds AMAZING - until CD kicks in. Sounds just wrong then lol. Now it's sport mode as soon as the truck is on.I have heard that driving in Sport or Tow Haul modes will turn it off.
Good news! Thanks for confirming. Not sure how much this will affect gas mileage but oh well!I can confirm sport mode turns off CD.
