Interesting test. I have the 3.5 turbo with a 3.55 rear end. I am only pulling a Pop up but always full and a full bed. I love it. Shifts well up and down grades.

We have the 2015 F-150 XL Supercab 2WD with the 2.7 eco pulling a 2015 FR micro lite 21DS. Truck setup is: 2.7 eco, 3.31 axle, factory tow package, 36 gal tank, 300~350 miles per tank when towing 700~850 miles per tank truck only. Truck tow rating is 7600lbs. Andersen WD/anti sway system. Towing mpg 12~9.5, Truck only mpg 26~30 mpg. Truck tows usually in 5th gear highway speeds (55-65) plenty of power up hills and mountains trip out west to Yellowstone last year, very happy with truck and TT

No matter what Ford and the owners of these trucks claim, making power creates heat. Heat destroys engines. No way will these trucks have a service life of that with a larger engine. Towing a 5th wheel with an engine not much bigger than my Honda Accord's engine just doesn't make sense to me.

That engine is the scariest thing I have ever heard of.

Fine if you want to tug a jet ski or ski doo.

But for heavens sake.....

No one should ever tow with a 6cy motor. They just can't develop enough HP.

Sounds like an engine for my Falcon. Might get 40 to the gal!
