This is the main point that is pulling me for the Ecoboost, gas mileage when not towing. I also have to admit, I was very skeptical of a 6 cylinder 3.5 pulling 9-10,000 lbs. I realize now that technology is way ahead of my older ways of thinking. If there were serious problems with this engine we'd be hearing about them. The engine is clearly proving itself.
