Max tow package will be more, the differential will be a 9.75" unit instead of the lighter/smaller 9" units, the bushings/mounts between the diff and frame and leaf springs to frame are larger (similar to the max payload/GVWR upgrade packages) LT tires, stiffer shocks on all 4 corners, slightly heavier springs on the front end. Will come with integrated brake controller and tow mirrors as well, possible rear view camera standard on the new max tows?

TheStuff, did you use the US Ford site?
Ford.ca doesn't offer the EcoBoost in a cheap truck like you have there.

i used .ca

its a regular cab, 4x2, 8' box, XL (cant warrant the 10k of accessories for the XLT) then pick the max tow package and it automatically puts it to the EB engine. I also picked speed control, mid box prep and rubber floor mats which puts it at 23,610 now

4:10 s and max tow sound nice. I was on the Ford site and did the "build". I did not see an option to do the Max Tow on the FX4. Does anyone know if the Max Tow is limited to certain models?

Looks like they are testing thoroughly as well. This is in regard to the engine used in the 2010 Baja 1000 race EcoBoost truck. If you have ever seen a Baja you know how they run those trucks.

To test its durability, it was put through the equivalent of 10 years – 150,000 miles – of harsh usage on the dynamometer. Then, it was installed in a 2011 F-150 to work as a log skidder in Oregon. If that wasn’t enough, it was used to tow a 11,300 pound trailer at high-speed NASCAR track and then to compete in a steep-grade towing competition, where it took place.

Only then was it installed, without modification, into the F-150 EcoBoost race truck for the grueling run. The truck crossed the finish line of the 1,061 mile desert race in just 38 hours and 20 minutes. Last yea, less than half of the competition, many with modified engines, finished the race.

here is a link
