The 2016 sales literature says payload is 2030 & towing is 15,540. Of course could vary with added options. Looks like a nicely optioned truck.

Very nice upgrade. You will never tow with a gasser again. The eco boost is nice for what it is but no one ever complains for having too much truck.

So is this an actual honest Eco boost review? They really do suck? They can't out pull a diesel?

Ecoboosts are ok. I had one and it did just find towing in Colorado. However, fuel economy sucks, cargo carrying capacity for a nicely optioned one sucks, and the engine does have some known issues with it that scared me to a diesel.

Well you just jumped up to a whole other price range. It better be an improvement. Looks like a great truck and I hope to step up someday as well for the payload. That said I don't like the notion that an ecoboost isn't a good tow vehicle. They can pull anything...pure awesome if you ask me...but they suffer the same payload restrictions all half-tons deal with.
