I have two 3.5L EBs and my company-owned work truck is a 2015 2.7L EB. It's been flawless and has 136K still going great (and we abuse it!) Only failure was a crank case pressure sensor.

Did you have any issues prior to needing a replacement motor. Has the new one shown any signs of anything negative. Some may get 300k some may get 60k there are a lot of other factors to consider. I do see a valid point in figuring a baseline, but everyone’s mileage will vary. I have a 99f250 7.3 in my driveway that is all factory minus water pump and alternator that’s got 525,000 on it and it’s still running good. Most won’t see anywhere close to that. So consider any other mileage, but at the end of the day it’s what you are comfortable doing. I know a few Ford techs personally and they strongly recommend the 5.0 is the motor to get. They simply see far less of them coming in for service.

I have a 2012 5.0 L and it has 403,000k on it, just do oil changes, and I replaced the spark plugs for the first time a week ago. I have a business so I drive it everyday, and i bought a 2019 a year ago it's a 2.7 L but only hase 20,000 k on it. Havnt had a problem with that but think I might trade it in because I'm concerned about high mielege reliability. I love the truck tho!

I don't think any 2.7EB have been around long enough to achieve high miler status barring very specific circumstances.

All the 3.5EB with 400,000 mi + that I know of are pre-'15.

The 60,000 mi a year guys will need 7 years to obtain 420,000 mi.

83000 km on 2018 2.7 supercrew xlt. Just had my radiator replaced due to slow leak. So far, that has been my only issue. Love the truck.

I had a 2015 2.7 EB. No problems except for a aux transmission pump replaced under warranty. Just traded it in on a 2020 2.7 EB. The 2020 is Quieter, faster and has a tighter turning radius.

My 2015 Ecoboost 2.7 started smoking at start up and it felt like the engine was missing. Took it to the dealer and they diagnosed the problem as a tube/seal in the left side turbocharger and either a bad spark plug or coil pack. The truck has been trouble free for 5 years but this latest issue made me think about future problems that might arise.
While I was at the dealership, I test drove and bought a 2020 F-150 with a 5.0 V-8- back to the tired and true

I don't know about tired.

First, a 2020 is a gorgeous truck. No?

And it's not like the coyote doesn't have great peak numbers. It's just that you have to ring its neck to get them. Fortunately, it kinda likes having its neck rung. Enjoy!

The 2018+ 5.0's have not exactly been trouble free. Quite a few people have had them replaced due to oil consumption issues.

As a 2014 owner, looking from the outside in at all the motors in the 2015+ trucks,it's pretty hard to argue that the 2.7 isn't at least as good, if not better, than the 5.0 in terms of reliability.

I'm curious if there is anyone on here that has over 100K miles on their 2.7 EB?
If so, what if any issues have you experienced with this engine?
I have 120K on my 2018 2.7 that I bought last month
Not had it long, so far I'm very happy with this truck.
All the sites I checked with using my VIN#, shows 1 owner, private use, no accidents or mechanical problems.
Maybe I got a good one!!

Someone has to be “that guy” so I’ll be him today. Just rolled 60k in 17 2.7. Drivers side turbo replaced at 40k. Was in shop 6 weeks for that. Beginning to show signs of another leak now. Small amount of smoke on startup again. Oil changed per monitor with Motorcraft oil and filter. Used as commuter truck for work. Been a great ride other than failing turbos.

18 2.7 29000 miles and in the shop for turbo or turbos replacement. Second guessing my purchase of this Ford. 6 weeks for a turbo replacement? Mines been in for a week so far. I keep reading so many issues with the eco motors. Wondering if i should have gotten a v-8.

Very very low percentage off these trucks see any problems at all. Millions are sold every year. Internet (social media and forums like these) seem to make it seem like alot more.

The new 5.0’s are having oil consumption issues. Hemis love to eat cams and self destruct. GM V8’s have issues with their displacement on demand. so dont jump ship just yet. The only one that might be very relible is the Toyota tundra, but youll be averaging 14 mpg to the 2.7’s 18-20.

You got unlucky. The 2.7’s seem to be the most reliable F150 engine out there. I hear very few issues with them.
