I have had a 2012 and a 2017 F150 ecoboost with 20,000+ miles of towing. I am curious to what you feel the short comings are. Also how long and heavy of a trailer do you tow?
My EcoBoost looks impressive on the screen until it's trailer time. Curious to see how yours does.

give me a bit to get the engine past the 1,000 mile mark before I borrow a big trailer and do some towing tests on her.

so, with less than 1000 miles on the new truck, I am getting a solid 20MPG + in MOUNTAIN driving.
That last entry was for a trip from Idaho Falls to Jackson Wyoming and back followed by another trip to Afton Wyoming and back.
Both of which had serious elevation changes and mountain driving.

Will pick up a new Hitch this week and should be ready for trailering shortly.

I would be very reluctant to trust that in winter driving conditions or while towing. Dry summer road trips might be ok. But I have trust issues with letting someone else even change my oil so...
