Good question. The motor has been used in Europe for quite a while. Do some searches on VM Motoi to get information about the company and the motor, you won't find long term reviews from North America for another 6 or 8 months.It is good information, but, I know there are some people cross shopping the eco boost, you have to admit that Ford's "testing" of the eco boost engine was impressive. I would also like to see some testimonials. I am interested in buying this truck, but I want to know it is a 250K mile motor and preferably more. I think that is a reasonable expectation.
