Just Got Our '15 3.5 EcoBoost!

Picked up our 15' Ford 3.5l Supercrew EcoBoost, with the 6.5' box and Max-Tow on Thursday.

Dying to get the trailer hooked up to it, but still have a bunch of the 1000 mile break-in period to go! Eager to experience the difference between this and the previous TV, the 4.0 Pathfinder.

Will keep you posted on mpg.

Cheers!

Um, it will be a huge difference. We have the '14 with the 3.5l and regular toe package. We have the 3.31 rear end and it pulls like a dream. I do want to put the Air Lift airbags on it just to eliminate some of the bouncing.

My dad has a '14 Eco Boost and loves it. Been driving it almost a year and it's getting better mpg's now. Last I heard he was getting around 25mpg and all the power he wants when he needs it.

When he hooks up to his 27BH it drops to about 10mpg. 😮

Enjoy the new rig!

It's pretty awesome climbing steep hills in 6th gear at 1200 RPM. Just a quiet whisper of the turbos and that torque rolls in... With that truck pulling the trailer in your signature, you won't even know it's there.
