5.4 or Ecoboost?

Looking at a 2010 lariat f150, has 100k with a 5.4. They want 20k for it with all the bells and whistles. What should I get? Will the 5.4 get good mileage, be cheaper to fix?

with that many miles I have to be very weary...and now way pay that much just my oh and ask them if it's had spark plus done to it, they're a common fail point and can get stuck/stip out

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

You are way better off going with the Ecoboost. They are great engines, and will get better mileage than the 5.4.

Yeah don't let the eco-hype sway you. My wife drives a 13 FX4 eco and its a nice ride, but we both loved her 2011 5.0 FX4 more. Again they are both great, but our preference goes to the 5.0. In all honesty any of the three; 5.0 3.5TT or 5.4 will perform very similarly with the 6spd auto behind it.

I was told the turbo life isn't that great on the eco boost. Not a problem if you are going to mod it
