Doubtful they would. It will be the 3.5, and IMO they should offer a hyped up 5.0 (or the new 7.0l). As much as I do love the EcoBoosts they do have their problems, mainly the turbos. The 5.0 is a killer engine and with a few simple bolt ons produce over 500 to the wheels and still get 20mpg. That being said, I love the Raptor's. Just wish their markup's weren't insane. I feel they're almost like a diesel in the aspect of resale wise. Dealer's around here ask $42-60k for older 6.2's with 60k+ on them.

Honestly there are some pros to going to a gas engine. They usually have drastically reduced maintenance cost. If you don't tow often even though im personally not a fan of the raptor series even the f150s would be much cheaper cost of ownership.

less oil, usually cheaper tires, parts and stuff. The last 2 years I have needed a diesel less and less and have heavily considered selling my 7.3l but I just can't let go lol. I would be totally fine with a gas F150 and it would ride better, parking would be easier and cost less to drive but I just can't make the transition yet, maybe its pride, the natural fear of change who knows.

All arguments aside logically a gas powered pickup would be best for you and I it sounds. Its just gonna come down to who makes the trade first?

I am in the same boat... No real need for a diesel at the moment, just enjoy driving the super duty to much to part ways.

The Ecoboosts are very fast engines. But, if you don't plan on offroading. Couldn't really tell you to go buy the marked up offroader. Ultimately it's up to you what you do and YOU know how much to spend. I REALLY like the 5.0. My dad has one (2014 ccsb)and every year(birthday christmas) i bought him something for it. 3 years ago I got him an Mpt tune, later, intake, later exhaust, this Christmas head and tail lights. It's a super fast truck and gets 16-20mpg depending on speed and traffic. I'd want to see how the 3.0 plays out. It looks like a stout truck but the 6.4 did too. Keep us updated with what you do.

Two things kept me from jumping myself......the lack of engine availability with the only option being the EcoBoost, and the 5'2" bed. If it would have at least been able to run with a 5.0 and a 6' bed (still too short IMO but more workable for what I do) I would have looked a lot harder at them.

The ride quality is amazing though, and they hold resale value like crazy at least around here.

2017 F250 CCLB KR "Nighthawk" Edition.....goodies to come.

By reading some of the posts I see there's quite a few that have the some concepts I'm having with the idea. Not to mention the dealer made what I consider a decent offer. My 2015 @125k+ for their '19 Raptor w/all the important options MSRP $75k+ ....out the door at $73k.
