    Good to know. Ford owner in the past and now.
    I was and still am sold on Toyota Tundra and Tacoma. The only reason I went back to Ford is because Toyota doesn't make a 3/4 ton or bigger.
    My 14,000 load I'm pulling currently needs more towing weight capability than Toyota offers.

    Runs great. Pulls a double axle dove tail trailer with golf cart and zero turn mower. Gets great gas mileage and yes, it tows itself as well

    LOL! This is one way to give your vehicle that hatchback look.

    I have a 2013 Gran Caravan that will haul a 4X8 sheet of plywood with the hatch closed. Would be OK for light towing. That 383HP 3.6 V6 is an animal and proving to be realiable. Put all the seats up and haul 7 people.
    When I was truck shopping only thing I could find with a full size bed was a work truck with no creature comforts. Had to settle for a 6.5 foot bed, now I really like it. Single cab with short bed easy to park and doesn't take a football field to turn around.

    I have a 2019 F150 four door I guess they call it crew cab, with the 5.0 L V-8. I tow a three horse trailer (full of horses) with all the tack that goes with them and as many as six people in the cab with no problems. I am a fan of the V-8. Unloaded at highway speeds it gets real close to 20mpg. With the loaded horse trailer it gets 10mpg.

    Also in case in comes up as a trivia question... stacked properly, you can haul 30 hay bales weighing about 65lbs each in a 6.5’ bed and still get the tailgate closed.

    I had a 94' ranger 2.3l 5sp from 94'-2003, zero breakdowns but zero power imo. Bought an 04' 4.0l auto 4x4 a few months ago and it's been great. The 4x4 diesel f350 couldn't get down the muddy roads so it sits most if the time.

    This should do what you need. If you want a manual transmission you'll have to go with a gas engine. This one is a diesel.

    Well SHE said--we go new F-150.
    SHE said it has to be able to haul the freezer and generator full of meat from HER moose down from Canada next year.

    Who am I to argue?

    What year Ecoboost? I am finding there were indeed some problems with first Generation Ecoboost and supposedly corrected in 2nd generation, post 2017 engines.

    What is the 3.3L V6 PFDI with Auto Start-Stop Technology Engine? Looking I see this more available than the 3.5 Ecoboost.

    How would this engine compare for intermittent trailer pulling compared to the Ecoboost?
