Finally upgrade my tow vehicle... no more ecoboost and struggling!

Upgraded my tow vehicle yesterday. Can't wait to go camping later this month!

But... But I thought the Eco Boost was BETTER than a full size and could pull the shuttle AND the Tacoma!!

FLAME ON!!!!!

BTW, nice truck. Only thing I never liked was the moose antler tow mirrors. Wish Ram could do something better looking.

Ecoboost is nice, I've had two of them, but not when it comes to towing a travel trailer. Empty I would say it's one the best driving trucks made. It totally drives like a car... Unfortunately it sort of towed like one! Disclaimer: I'm just speculating being I've never towed with a car before.

Thanks

You will quickly forget about the ecoboost, especially when towing.

Nice but what is it? 3/4 ton diesel? Do the mirrors retract?

Yes, 3/4 ton 4x4 mega cab with a Cummins diesel. Yes the fold in. My son unfolded them just to see how it looked.

You threw the bait out, so I'll nibble.... Ecoboost towed like a car? What was the weight on that trailer? Mine is towing 7k pounds like nobodies business.

My feathers aren't ruffled, but you've given the worst towing review of an ecoboost that I've heard, and I've read hundreds.
