A 2018 F150 with the 3.5 ecoboost can tow 13,000 lbs.
My F250 2001 diesel weighs 8500#, and I have weighed my truck with my 24' attached and my 69 mach 1 inside with a total weight of 17,500#. 

So take the former from the latter and my trailer(not aluminum) and my mach weighs 9000#. So you're telling me that an ecoboost F150 can pull 4000# more?  That's like another 69 mach 1+.

That is hard for me to believe, JMO.
The 3.5 liter is only 214 cubic inches. Max tow package (3.55 rear gear) with the 3.5 EB can pull 13k and mine right now is getting 18mpg driving around town. Max towing also includes a transmission oil cooler in addition to being a 10 speed and a engine oil cooler.

I’m glad I opened a can O worms on F150.
Worthy discussion
My buddy says it pulls like his old 2004 F250 with V10

As most know I'm a big block guy that loves torque, but that tiny twin turbo ECOBOOST is the ultimate for doing all things well! :)

Even though this info. is slightly dated, it contains a lot of useful data on various model ratings/towing, etc.

Gentleman—

Some studies show octopus to be as intelligent as human-but a mother lays her eggs and dies. Each new octopus learns as much as they can through their life. That knowledge dies with each one.

Yet here—unless the system storing this information is not backed up well—hint—the Power to make decisions to both enjoy
our fine machines—and pass them on to the next luck person—increases with each post.

Thank you-each of you—for helping empower me to greater enjoyment and preservation of MS2148.
