Default Would You Buy a 5cyl in the New F150?

So I have heard a couple rumors that Ford might stick a 5cyl motor in their next gen F150. Possibly discontinuing the 3.7L. I have no idea if this is true or not but I thought this could be an interesting thing to discuss. Apparently this engine would be Ford's 3.2L Duratorq I5 turbo diesel. This engine is rated at around 200hp and 350 ft-lbs and is used in the new Ranger over seas.

I know personally that I would have a hard time getting an I5 in a full-size. I would need some serious convincing of its performance potential. Maybe a smaller ecoboost V6 would be an interesting choice, like a 3.0 tt with 380 ft-lbs or something.

If you think a four cylinder or a V6 sounds bad, you ought to hear a FIVE cylinder accelerating.......really a different, and rather unpleasant sound!

I was looking at videos of the 3.2 I5 ranger and it looks pretty neat. I would buy one in a 700 lb lighter F150. Cdc5.0 you say one thing and then contradict yourself. You say you would have a hard time getting a 3.2 I5 but could see getting a 3.0 v6. I think the I5 with some tuning would make for a fun truck. Stock it wouldnt be thrilling getting to 60 but mpg would bw great. I doubt it will happen except if Ford wants to beat everyone to the 1/2 ton diesel market.

How something sounds differs to each person. A gasoline I5 has a distinct sound. A gasoline I5 turbo has a distinct sound. This I5 turbo diesel doesn't have a bad sound at all and sounds completely different than gasoline I5s. Hypothetically. An EFIlive tuned 3.2 I5 would see something like 300whp/575wtq.

I guess I did contradict myself there haha. What I meant was, displacement aside, I might be more inclined to consider a smaller V6 over an I5

The US is slow to accept the Inline engines. The I6 and I5 that Chevy used were nice engines but didn't take off. If there were a way to dpf delete this I5, do injectors, big turbo and tune and it would blow an EB off the road. Yeah it might sound different but all you'd really hear would be a jet engine turbo shooting by.

I'm going to have to disagree. The i-5 in the Acura Vigor and the VW 2.5 in the Rabbit/Jetta sound really good with an exhaust.

But no, I wouldn't buy a 5 cylinder f-150. V8 or bust

I voted no way....but outside the vote, I'm not saying it's impossible....but I would need to see a LOT of proof behind it, before even considering. but I do really doubt if I could bring myself to do it....
