Gross Vehicle Weight is 7,700; 500 pounds more than normal because of the Max Tow. Payload goes up about 350 pounds. So, there must be about 150 pounds of additional weight in the vehicle.

Yes, Race Red. I ordered a 2012 because I wanted the 36 gallon tank.

Just arrived at the Chula Vista after a 120 mile trip in the Ecoboost pulling our ~8700 lb 5er up and down the steep hills of southern CA. It down shifted a number of times going up the hills (and down some too) to get to the peak torque at 2500 RPM, but never lost speed due to lack of power. Thumbs up to Ford.

Ego Boost

Here is a better shot; looks better in the sunshine though. The rear step is by Amp Research; it obviously folds up tight against the truck but thought you might like to see what it looks like deployed. I like this solution vs the Ford tailgate step because I can use it with the tailgate shut; like when we are towing.

If you are on the fence about Max Tow, here is something to consider. I've discovered that the wide mirrors are a pain in the butt getting in the garage and also in parking lots getting between the cars . . .
