This is a curiosity questions as I swear the 2015 and newer F150's have a more aggressive exhaust note to them vs my 2012 F150. Does anyone know if there is a different muffler in use or resonator, etc?

All in my head or something different? Could be cam timing in the tunes as well I suspect.

Could be the “v8” exhaust note that is pumped into the speakers in the 2015+ F150. It makes you think you are hearing a louder exhaust than the previous year that did not add this augmented sound.

What trim level truck is this in? They don't all have the fake engine noise, my xlt does not.

I get the feeling that he's talking about the actual exhaust note from outside the truck though, since he has a 2012.

I believe it is the lariat and higher have the fake engine noise. I will admit my 2017 2.7 xlt came with a louder exhaust from the factory then I was expecting. Not complaining either lol

Yes I should have said from the outside. I swear they have a better exhaust note. Wondering if they received a different resonator or muffler.

I think when my brother had his 2014 FX4 it even had a better sounding exhaust. It for sure had the fake V8 noise from the inside lol.

If there is something different it might be a cheap catback/muffler to pick up for a little more sound on the older Ecoboost trucks. I have CRP manifolds and a livernois catted DP so I don't need an aggressive muffler.
