Slightly more if I get the Ecoboost. Not a huge cushion, but within the capabilities of the vehicle. If I was to get the Explorer Sport I would have a bigger cushion. Real world testing will tell me a lot. Especially once I get into the hills. May just keep the Flex as my people mover and get me a Ecoboost F-150....
I was towing with a Honda pilot and was finding out that I was underpowered on large hills and high altitude. With a full load (water, gene, food wood) I was tipping 3600 lbs. Pulled fine when flat just was in the way on large hills. We got into a Tundra instead. So the idea of an f-150 isn't a bad one.
