Same as I was thinking. We have both 5.0s and 3.5 EBs, and if any of my guys gotta pull a heavier trailer or haul a heavy load…….. they want the EB. It is far and away the better choice for a truck that does towing duty/work.

Interested to see how Aric likes his power boost after a while…. Likely go with one of those on the next replacement.

I have 6300 miles on it now, roughly 1500+ of those miles are towing my camper (~8k) and the XT22. Absolutely my favorite vehicle to date.

That’s some high praise

Does anyone have any experience with the Nissan Titan with the Cummins diesel? My neighbor is looking at one.

I do not want to start anything but just wanted to clarify a few things. I fully understand that the 3.5 will run circles around the 5.0. I do not question the fact that the ecoboost has power. I was backing up the fact of toyota ditching the old v8 and throwing in a twin turbo v6 is not that bad of an idea as the market has seemed to like the idea in general.

I think Toyota is making a proper step in the right direction here. I think it’s ugly but that’s subjective.
With your statement of turbos being a replacement for displacement I agree with you in terms of power, but that is not why I was making the comment. Toyota leaving the v8 now leaves the tundra with a much more high stress engine. Something that is running high compression and is forcing more air (which mean more fuel) into a smaller space to create the same power is not going to last as long as something that is just chugging along. With the comment on the f150 being an around the town truck I was not referring to power at all. I personally think the new fords with the ecoboost drive much more like cars in a good way. I think the power delivery is much smoother than the v8s from chevy which is why I think many people seem to like them.

Enter me aboard the 3.5 eco fan bus.

Coming from numerous previous 5.4's and 5.0's in several F150's, I was gun shy to try the eco and give up my V8... but I test drove the 2.7 and 3.5 ecos in '16 and was sold. Never looked back. Has towed both of my boats (admittedly lighter than many) and several skid steers (etc) amazingly well.... all the while being far more spirited to drive during the everyday commute.

Don't mistake it as a replacement for a diesel in a 3/4 or larger.... not what I'm comparing... but as an everyday driver that's more than capable of serving the majority of boat owners... I'm in. And I suspect Toyota owners will be, too.

What about the 4.7? Just as bad?

Nissan stopped making them. After 2 years. That should tell you something.
