December 23, 2012Looking at trading in my old truck and getting a new 2013 F-150. Wondering if it would be better to get the Ecoboost 3.5l or the 6.2l with 3.73 with locking rear diff. Both show to be rated for 11,000lbs towing with the max payload package. This would be a Supercrew with the long bed and a fifth wheel hitch in back. My RV weighs 9000lb fully loaded with all tanks full but I hardly ever tow it with the tanks holding water so it weighs roughly 7400lb empty. Pin weight is 1400lb. Only tow it twice a year and never more than a 1000 miles one way. Will the Ecoboost hold up to this much towing?

December 24, 2012well my 2004f150 4x2 hauls my dad`s 39 Pontiac which should be pretty heavy with all the metal
Ive gotten 1st place trophies for offroad performance (like in mud)Ive also gotten 1st place trophies at regular shows when I had to clean off all the mud.. hahaha... and then I totaled my 4x4..
December 26, 2012Ive owned both now with a 2011 ecoboost f150 and my new 2012 f250 gasser. IMO i would go with the ecoboost for better MPG while not towing. The F150 will handle it fine. Ensure you get the max towing package (notable by the towing mirrors). hope this helps.
