    Scotty Kilmer vs. Ecoboost

    Don't know if any boosters out there watch the Scotty Kilmer channel on YouTube; apparently, we've all bought the wrong truck!



    I find a lot of his videos to be informative, but I respectfully disagree with his assessment of the Ecoboost platform.

    Over a million owners and 65%+ of new buyers disagree. Scotty is good for a laugh, but not much else.

    Watched the video. He said "It could have problems" and "They will cost you a lot of money when they break, cuz they will"
    Sounds like a poor attempt at Chevy commercial again lol.

    I saw the same video as I do regularly watch his videos. I believe he is wrong with this one. Lots of ecobosst trucks going the distance.

    He's not even good for that. His nails-on-chalkboard voice just ruins any attempt at humor for me.

    I think he is kind of right. These trucks do have a lot of stuff going on but isn’t that how technology is these days. Sometimes you got to update things. Someone has to step up to that challenge. I do agree with you that we are seeing lots more of these truck going the distance.
    You miss spelled Ecoboost and it made me think.
    EcoBoss would be a good name for the H.O. Motor.

    I didn't watch the video. (I gathered enough based on the responses)

    But I will agree 100% that as fantastic as these motors are when they are performing within design parameters, those parameters are relying on an incredibly complex number of systems to be in harmony.

    It does seem to be more frequent though that folks will report a happy long-term and relatively trouble free Ecoboost ownership. And it rarely, if ever, is attributed to pampering. In fact, often the opposite.

    Kilmer comes off like the kinda guy that always has an issue with how you do something. That his way "is always better". I can't stand people like this who are always trying to make themselves feel better by putting down the methods and choices of others.

    If he were better at his craft, he would frame the conversation about the pros and cons, rather than assume that people don't want to spend money on their cars. I have spent more on my Ford than any other car I have owned, true, but I also get a grin everytime I drive it. So the whole premise of the video is that cars you have to spend more money on should be avoided. By that logic who would ever buy a Mercedes, Maclaren, Bugatti, Ferarri, Lamborghini, etc. I can guarantee you those people enjoy their vehicle much more than those that could only buy a Corolla.

    I think the video misses the point and should be titled, "Cars you should avoid if you want a poor driving experience".
