Finally traded in my 04 F-150 5.4 for the EcoBoost, all I can is WOW!! Night and Day difference in towing. I'll get a couple pics up soon.

I want one and looked into it, but for the price of new trucks I'll keep my 2001. I like not having a car payment. Maybe next year

Very nice! I like the new Eco-boost. They run good!

Do you tow up any big hills? Towing 6k up the pass with a v6 seems impossible somehow.

They have a higher towing capacity than any of the other gassers. 11,500 in most configurations.

I am also considering a tradeup..

I havnt towed any super long grades yet like the grapevine but ive towed a boat with my 04 5.4 for the past 6 yrs and i can tell you this ecoboost kills that engine. This engine is 365hp and 420tq. The tourqe curve is like a diesel so your making 90% of your tourqe at 1700 rpm and holds strong through 5000 prm. 6 speed transmission and a legit tow mode with a manuel shift option makes towing really nice.

What's the hiway mileage like

just upgrade from an '05 5.4 to an ecoboost here myself as well... Haven't had a chance to tow with the ecoboost yet, as they say to put 1,000 miles on the truck before towing. Only have ~300mi so far :/

Awesome little motor though.

I havnt done it the "right" way yet but my on board mpg says I get 20-22 with cruise set at 70. My commute to work is all freeway. I actually drive a Mazda 3 since my commute is 80 miles round trip.

Nice - I bought a 2011 F150 Platinum and absolutely love it. I have never been a truck guy, but I still enjoy it like the first day I got it.

I got passed by one on the way to work today. He had a 19 foot boat in tow. Turbos sounded effing awesome. Like a new diesel, all turbo no combustion noise. Good looking and sounding truck. I should be able to afford a 2011 in 2020, but I cant wait!

All 6 of the Ecco Boost challenge videos are on Fords website if you want to see more, they're pretty damn cool.

I noticed your truck doesn't have the front license plate mount off to the side. You guys must not have to have front license plates where you live.

Ya Hate, there's not a front license plate law over here in AZ. If you go to your local ford dealership theres a DVD they will give you that talks about the ecoboost and the new 6.7L powerstroke...very cool information.
