Turbo's starting to fail now and are not available for replacement and very pricey to replace.  Recent info I read stated the life of the Turbos is expected to be 150,000 miles.  Second hand owners might want to consider this.

My input. Had a 2011 v6 no turbo for almost 5yrs. Traded it in for 2015 2.0 ecoboost. Miss the deeper sound of the v6.[:(]. But like the slight wistle turbo sound when you drive by a wall that sound reflects off. Now.. my observations. V6 is VERY responsive on the throttle, but always found it not so impressive over passing cars at 65mph and above. Seems like not a 285hp engine, im guessing its the weight? 2.0 ecoboost is opposite. Not responssive at take off, very sluggish for my taste but once its going, its very peppy. And feels a bit stronger at over passing. Thats my observations.

My observation is the exact opposite. The 2.0LEB is quick off the line but runs out of steam around 6K rpm. The 3.7NA is a dog off the line but comes alive around 4K rpm.

Leaving it in Drive kills the responsiveness of the 2.0. If i need to get some pep off the line or pass someone, I'll throw it into Sport Mode. Once i get up to speed, I'll put it back into Drive. Leaving it in Drive is supposed to optimize fuel economy, so some performance is lost because of this.

The turbo in the 2.0 is quick spooling & comes alive around 2K (i believe it reaches full boost around 2K), but it's gasping for air around 5.5-6K. Gives you the grunt you need to get going, but it's not a high revving performance engine. As long as you know this, passing/every day driving is pretty simple. Know your vehicles strengths weaknesses ;)

Paddles work both in Drive & in Sport Mode

I have 3.5 EB, 2.0 EB and 3.5 N/A.. I agree the EB's are quick and powerful up to around 80 mph..Passing cars is a breeze. The 3.5 N/A just gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. It's not slow, it runs strong and runs well. My opinion that's the engine that's going to last the longest.

My experience is the same as AK's.  My 3.5 is a bit slow off the line but I have no problems accelerating from higher RPMs.  As long as you stay in front of the power curve, the 3.5 is very responsive in all rpm bands except lower rpms.  I have never tried the manual shift mode off the line so maybe that might help.

Geez.. wondering if I got spoiled with tue regular 3.5 v6 no ecoboost. Seems like if i stop on the gas from stand still, theres like almost half a aecond delay before it moves. Anyone else noticed this? I will try putting it on S just out of curiosity.

Using S won't get it off the line any faster or make it any faster on a WOT 0-60 run.  It does help while moving in that it holds a lower gear in some cases keeping rpm higher.    As lidisco points out you can use the paddles to downshift in preparation for passing even in D mode.   It downshifts temporarily then returns to full automatic mode.    Once you're in S mode it will shift automatically until you use the paddles, then it's manual shifts until you go back to D.   I use S a lot when driving in hilly terrain at lower speeds.

That delay is usually the electronic throttle control.  They program it that way for smoother response for all the non-hooligan drivers like my wife.   For us hooligans it can be frustrating.   I believe there are tunes that can eliminate or shorten it as well as add-on devices.
