You can check the forum of each brand. Usually they have a thread on how many miles do you have on a particular engine.

104k miles on my lowly 5.4L F250. First truck I’ve owned in a long time that I’m not itching to trade off.

Ford diesel has 175 k miles. It is more dependable than most new gas trucks with half the mileage.

i worked for a bottled water delivery company for over 20 years. the e350 5.4 liter gas cargo vans we used always got 200 to 300k miles without major engine expenses or transmission. they didn't tow but they carried a lot of weight. the bodies would wear out from use long before the engines and tranny. we had a 7.3 liter diesel mixed in that went 300k till it became a money problem. 3 6.0 ford diesels that were money pits after 100k miles

About 1900,000 on my Suburban before the transmission started whining and shifting funny. It's currently parked, though I'll probably just put a reman in it and keep going.

I have had three 5.4l's . One 2 valve and 2 3 valve engines. Combined 500,000 on the three trucks and very few problems with them. A much better engine than the internet scholars would have you believe....

My understanding is the 3 valve with the cam phaser requires clean oil for longevity. I have a 06 Ford 5.4 with the cam phasers. The other thing is keeping the coolant changed so the dissimilar metals don't start eating away.

On FTE there are quite a few people with a lot of miles on the 5.4 engine.

185,000 on the F 150 HD in my sig picture. I have had to put some money in it that should not be necessary in my opinion, but it has been a great truck for me other than the repairs. Prolly have to run it for another few years to well over 200K.

My 2005 Silverado 2500HD has 108,000 miles. I replaced a number of components by myself and plan on keeping the truck for a long time due to the cost of new trucks.
