The 4.7 is a modern engine, so it should easily last at least 150k miles. But that should hold true for any modern engine. I wouldn't let anyone fool you into thinking the 4.7 is as reliable as the 4.0. I've seen plenty of people on here w/ head issues on their 4.7. The 4.0 is simply a tried and true engine that is about as reliable as you can get.
I would say that the 4.7 is as reliable as any other modern engine. If you buy one that has about 70k-80k miles and only plan on keeping it for 2 years, it shouldn't matter what engine you get b/c they will both last.
