There are a few threads around here on that. Seems the F150 Eco Boost actually outperforms the most common V8. I think it's a 5.4 liter????? Especially in the mountains. I was impressed to see that. My buddy has one, but he doesn't tow anything with it. But it does get with the program.

There are two ecoboost options this year, 2.7 and 3.5. You're thinking of the 3.5. But the 2.7 looks to be no slouch either. Also, in 2017 the 3.5 is up to 480 ft lbs of torque IIRC.

Edit: 470 torque (375 horsepower) in 2017, not 480. Source: http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2017...nd-torque.html

Looks like the 2.7 isn't available with Max Tow, which is the only way the 3.5/5.0 can get that really high payload rating.

The 2.7 has 1000 more pounds of payload than my current TV.

Thanks for the replies.

I recently upgraded to a 2016 F150 4x4 Screw Sport with the 2.7L EcoBoost. I have to say the 2.7L has been by far the best little engine I have ever had the pleasure of driving. I even thought the 2.7 out performed the 3.5 in my test drives. My max payload is 1481.

Let me tell you when I stomp on the pedal, this pickup gets up and goes like no tomorrow. I am only towing a small x17z, but there has never been a shortage of power even hitting some pretty steep grades going over the cascades.

I am average around 19 mpg in city and 22 on highway. Towing mpg is around 14 to 15 on average.
