I’m looking to buy a F150. Read a couple places the 3.3 motor is light on power. I don’t like turbo motors, at least on passenger vehicles. Has anyone ever put a chip or programmer modification on their truck?
Either one seems like a good motor for your application. Both are supposed to be extremely reliable. Go with whichever would give you more peace of mind.Which is odd given the 3.3 has more power than V-8's in trucks did 20 years ago. I go back and forth on ordering the 3.3 vs. 2.7 I want 4 x 4 extended cab and 6.5 bed. All I'll ever tow is a bass boat and mainly flat ground. I want good hwy milage and don't want to be in for repair even under warranty all the time. This will be my first and last truck and want it to last 20 years like all our family cars have.
