I've got the 1st generation of this engine in my 2015 F150, and I agree with the refinement aspect, but I'd also caution that this super smooth and super refined and super quick free-revving character has one downside; especially in a pickup. I do zero towing and only light hauling, but if you tow or haul heavy, you should know that no matter how much you downshift this engine I. Tow haul or manually lockout higher gears, it will mot engine brake hardly at all. The small displacement; the free revving character combine to provide little control downhill except for brakes, and so I'd say this engine truck combination definitely needs an exhaust brake add on in the higher towing and hauling trims. However, that's a minor complaint. I'm loving getting up to 26 mpg on highway trips with a big V8 engine character. That is, except for the sound, which this engine has none once under way. And the sound it has at idle, well that's pretty bad; just like most DI engines, but the new version might be better since it uses PFI at idle.
