    Second Generation Ecoboost 3.5L

    Hi, I am new to the forum and getting ready to buy my first F150. I will be trading in my 2010 Nissan Titan. Got tired of waiting for the new gasoline Titan. To be honest though I will miss some of the features like the utilitrack tie down system in the bed. Many of the other features are now available on Ford like the 180 degree opening rear door, dampened/powered tailgate, spray in bed liner, etc.

    My question is when to buy. I think I remember reading that the new generation Ecoboost 3.5 that is going into the Raptor with the 10 speed transmission may be available in the 2017 F150. Does anyone have any information on this? Seems that may be a worthwhile option to wait for?

    A lot of things I miss about my Titan too but in all fairness it was the top trim level and my F150 is a basic XLT
    As far as the 2nd gen F150 I've heard it is happening although I'd give them a year or so to work out the kinks as I do with all vehicles, that's just me though, someone's got to buy the first years.

    My Titan has the NISMO dual exhuast and honestly I think I may miss the V8 rumble. I will not miss the 13mpg though. Thanks for the info on the engine!

    How long are you willing to wait? I've seen the same rumors about the Raptor transmission getting into the 17 F150's. But, just rumors.

    My last vehicle was a 2014 Cherokee trailhawk. That was the first year for the 9-speed in that and I can say two big things about transmissions with that many gears: 1) they're annoying as **** on the highway because even the slightest grade change forces multiple gear changes and 2) there were a lot of complaints about transmission issues from 2014s. I was lucky and never had problems but quite a few people I talked to had transmissions reflashed or even replaced. The ZF 8-speed is perfect in the ram and the grand Cherokee, but the ZF 9-speed was crap in my trailhawk. I'd wait until 2018 if you really want that 10-speed.
