Beautiful truck, but your not going to tow 10K+. I have towed 12K+ with my Super Duty and I'm here to tell you it ain't happening safely with a 150.
That being said, this truck should kill the competition in the light to medium towing category and I bet the mileage bobtail is amazing.
Lonegvity & repair bills with that turbo setup are yet to be seen but that will take time to prove out. I hate to be a skeptic but I listened to everyone rave about the 6.0L diesel when it came out......
Anytime you take alot of power from a small engine, the sacrifices come from somewhere.
Heres hoping this thing works flawless and stays together!

I'm with you. If the engine lasts 150k-200k without imploding then it'll be a winner for sure!

Humm, reviving an old post...

You guys know that the Ecoboost has been around for a while right? In some form or the other...

So as for longevity, I'm pretty sure this will be right up there with other F150 products. And as for towing 11 000 lbs, if the engineers at Ford and the Safety reps from US DOT would not let Ford rate this truck higher than what it's supposed to trail.

Just sayin'...
