The twin turbo eco-boost is in it's 3rd year now I believe. My buddy is the top tech at Ford in my area and he has not seen any major problems with these engines as of yet. I went with the extended waranty on mine mostly because of the SINC system and all the other electronics (electric power steering for example)
I think this engine will be available in the Expedition in 2014 too.
In about 2 weeks I'll be towing the star so I'll post some comments then.
