You will need to keep a eye on the speedometer. Very easy to hit 75 with the Ecoboost and not even trying. Keeps up with the diesels on the grades. You will enjoy it.

Made it out this weekend for a trial run on the ecoboost pulling the tt. Measurements looked good and it pulled the tt with ease. Interstate and back roads both passed the test.

Congrats on the new purchase. I have 2010 with the 5.4L and it pulls great. Im sure you'll love the new Ecoboost. I hear it is getting mixed reviews though. Let us know after you tow a few times how it goes. I thought about trading in for one but im now thinking F250 or DRW as I am positive I can talk the wife into upgrading to a 5ver

Had the 5.4 in my 07 F150. Was skeptical about even looking at the ecoboost but finally gave in and took a test ride. That sold me and after the trial tow I'm convinced. Of course the tt wasn't fully loaded so I'll see how it does this weekend on our camping trip.

WV Campers.
What size is your trailer and what is the GVWR of the trailer. I pull our 24' Wildwood with a GVRW of 5500lbs with our 2011 F super crew Eco Boost with 6.5" bed and it pulls great. I have the 3:55 gears. It is really hard to not do 75 mph with it. Truck just wants to go. Have towed around 1100 miles so far this year.
