FWIW I know numerous people with them who love them and have had no issues. Lets be real, if Toyota did the same thing and had some new engine that they claimed was best everyone here would be swooning over it lol. Besides, the Ecoboost isn't really "new" the 3.5L Ecoboost itself has been around for 7 years. It's not like all the other engines in the segment have been around forever. Toyota's 5.7L is only a year older, the engines in the new GM trucks while sharing the same displacement are new this year. The 5.6 in the Titan has been around the longest with no changes. The Ram Hemi has been around nearly a decade with a few tweaks.
