I'm really anxious to hear how these Ecoboosts pulling near max stand up over the long run. Ford is sticking with them right now in the face of Dodge and Nissan coming out with diesels. Of course, it will also be interesting to see how their engines perform.

If I were in the market for a new truck right now, an F150 ecoboost with max payload/tow is exactly what I'd get. Mileage will be down compared to a 'regular' F150 just due to rear end gears, but I think it will pull max weight without any problem. I only pull 4-6 times a year at this point. If I were going once a month for hundreds of miles, I'd have to think about it more.

Yeah, I tow a flatbed with ATV's, but my big concern is the flying brick. At 1,250 tongue and just under 10k loaded, I'm gonna have to think REAL hard. We tow 250 miles one way average, but could go farther... I doubt. Towing the brick 10-12 times a summer, its hard to justify the smoker, but I'm not sure the 150 platform is up to it. I know the EcoBoost is.

I tow a 33 bhts with a dry weight of 8600 lbs and my 2012 ecoboost with max tow handles it great.
