2015 F-250 recent towing observation
I traded up to a F-250, 6.7L Diesel from a 2011 F-150, 3.5L echoboost. I loved the F-150 echoboost. It is a great truck and engine-lots of power. I had the 7100 GVWR and had very little left over for cargo etc. towing the 2013 26BH. I just wanted more payload capability since I was close to my max.
I looked around to upgrade to a F-150 with max payload with the GVWR to match but was not able to find one nor was the dealer in his search of the area. It apparently is a special order vehicle since it is listed as a "commercial" truck with the max payload package.
My F-150 when towing averaged approx. 8-9mpg, driving without the trailer around town I would get about 15-17 miles and 22 mpg on the hwy.
I just returned from my recent trip with the 2015, F-250 (3.31) and when towing I averaged between 13.5 and 14 mpg. Driving around town (no trailer) I averaged 15 mpg and on the highway about 21.2 mpg. I was a little surprised that the mpg I got with the F-250 were just a little shy from the F-150. I knew the diesel is much better for towing but just surprised I did as well as I did without the trailer.
