Ecoboost

Picked up our camper yesterday for first tow with my new Ecoboost. Was very pleased with power of the truck. Came up Linville mountain in 4th gear. Holds back great on descent. Couldn't be more pleased.

Engine and Trans gauge didn't move at all. Now I feel much more confident towing.

Did you engage the tow mode? I love that option towing the 5ver. The tow mode walks you through the hookup to checking lights etc. Lovely tool ford made.

Over 10 K miles towing with my 2012 Ecobeast. The truck still blows me away in terms of how capable of a towing platform it is.

Turbs I have driven all 3 Detroit players in both gasser and oil burner. I'd LOVE a dually oil burner but I have zero need for it right now. When I do, I'll happily buy one and then drop into threads like just to stir the pot... (well it would NEVER be a duramax since I'd not take one if it was given to me, it'll be a Ford). How's that for more pot stirring.
