My neighbor and best friend have one, and I have to say I was impressed. Driving a diesel for the last ten years I really didn't like the torque curve of the gassers, But like I say nice..... BTW my neighbbor went from driving a Volvo to the truck and it took him a while to learn how to bring his mileage up haha.

I have a 2012 Ford F-150 Lariat, 3.5L Ecoboost, 3.73 (I don't have the max towing package). Ford says it will pull 9600 lbs. Can I pull a White hawk 28DSBH or 29SQB comforably? Just trying to get opinions.

Gary

Based on my experience last weekend, the ecoboost would have absolutely zero problems pulling any of the whitehawk trailers. This engine has more grunt down low than any gasser I have ever driven. All you got to do is wind it up between 2 and 3 grand and you will have all the torque on demand. Gone are the days having to wind a v8 up to 5 grand to get up a hill. Very, VERY impressive engine. I do believe Ford hit a homerun with this one.

KATGAR05--Do you have any kind of tow package? A 3.73 rear gear should get you something other than a standard truck . Larry

Larry,

I have the standard Ford towing package, receiver, 7 way pin and 4 way pin. I have a tow package, just not the MAX towing package.

Gary,
If you have a 4x2, the Tech Specs in the 2012 brochure say the Ecoboost, super crew with a 3.73 axle ratio can tow up to 9600 with the 4x4 and 11,300 with a 4x2 and max tow package. It does not specify what it can tow 4x2 without the max tow package. However the trailer life 2012 towing guide says 9700 pounds with 3.73, 4x2 and no max tow package. So what Ford says sounds correct. Either way, you should have plenty of towing ability with the White Hawks. A fully loaded 26 DSBH will be 7,500 lbs. The differences without the max tow is a beefier bumper, an upgraded radiator, auxiliary transmission cooler and enormous mirrors. In my opinion the transmission and truck may run hotter, but the pulling power should be the same. Transmission and engine experts may want to verify or dispute those comments.

Thanks Bill, I should have specified I have a 4x4. Think I'm going to go with the 29sqb since it's GVWR is also 7500 lbs. My truck does have a transmission cooler, but, probably not as big or another cooler you would get with the max towing package. This forum is awesome for info.

Gary,
For not much money, you can easily add an aftermarket auxiliary cooler if you think you need it.
