The new ecoboost puts out more hp, more torque, torqe come on lower in the RPM range, and gets 50%+ better mpg doing it, but a truck needs to have a V8, its gotta have that sound!!

Disagree on low range torque. Ecoboost has like 150 ft/lbs at 1000 RPM. It has more MID range torque, though. After the lag and once the turbos spool, that is.

I should have said peak torque is at a lower rpm
