I did the research and decided to buy the 5.0 over the Echo Boost. I have 4500 miles on the truck now and it has been flawless. The 5.0 is a very nice engine with a lot of gas saving technology. I have been logging every tank of gas and can say being truthful that my average gas mileage is 18.5mpg. My truck is a 2013 F150 supercab 2wd XLT with the towing package 3.55 gears and 7100lb GVW. I got about $12,000 off sticker when I bought it a few months ago. I know other trucks like the Tundra hold value a lot better than the F150 but I also think they pay closer to sticker when buying. If anyone is considering the GM trucks with AFM you had better check out their forum because it looks a lot worse than the Eco Boost forum. Honda tried variable cylinder management for years and never perfected it so I am not sure why GM would even try.
I started this thread over 3 years ago. I just looked at the first post (mine) and remembered the Ford salesman telling me about getting 29MPG in the ecoboost. Now that is funny right there. Maybe the New F150 will get 29MPG.
