Nah, came out in 11. There was a change to the turbochargers in 12 or 13 I believe but otherwise pretty similar year to year.

Will be interesting to see what they do to the 3.5 to boost HP and Torque for the new Raptor rumors state like 440bhp and close to 500 pounds of torque

My guess is a tune and premium fuel.

We have a 2013 F150 super crew V8 with 30,000 miles on it and pull a 2013 Rockwood 8280WS ultra light 5th wheel (7400 lbs dry and just over 9000 loaded). On our last long drive from Florida including through the Smokies, we averaged 9.8 mpg.

Honestly I think the reason I am in the 19.5 is because I never step heavy on the pedal or then I am down to 17.5. Since coming back Sunday I have been going easy on it and avg 19.5 with a few times getting into 20-22 range but according to gauge avg is 19.4 right now doing city/hwy

I definitely noticed a big dropoff when I exceed 65mph (not towing). Seems like it really sucks down the fuel once you go over that number on 3.55 gearing.

Funny I sit in the right lane doing 65 and people all get pissed at you on a 2 lane highway when the left lane is flying? Dunno why but I plan on going easy helps save $ especially with gas going up.

Only difference between max tow is Aux cooler, 3.73 gears and 18" tires instead of 20 but I am dumping Pirelli's for BFG KO/2's for a LT instead of a P rated.

Don't know abt aux cooler. My dealer told me he's seen these pull 11k. Like I said, probably wouldn't go in yhe mountains but along gulf coast I'm fine. Happy camping
