    Question, currently tow with a Ram 2500 Diesel. It's too much truck. Looking to downsize to either the GMC/Chevy 1500 or the F150. What would you recommend and why?
    Thanks in advance.

    I had 2012 f150 ecoboost. Towed great but was never pleased with mileage
    I now have 2014 gmc Sierra 1500 crew with 5.3. Haven't towed much as boat is in a lift but the mileage is superior.
    I have 2011 supra 21v. What are you towing?

    i think due to altitude and hills the ecoboost may be your best bet in a half ton towing

    I used to tow with a 1 Ton F350 all the time.

    Now I tow with a F150 Eco.
    Mileage towing Sucks in Oregon, lots of hills. On the highway I see typically 10-10.5. Hills I see 8-9
    When not towing though I see 18.5 so that's nice. Drove from OR to El Paso Texas and back was at 70-80mph all the time averaged 18 entire time.

    Yes there is a new Eco Diesel in Ram 1500s with comparable power to the EcoBoost. Better mileage unhooked - mid 20s.
    I personally don't know anyone with one to give a report on towing performance and mileage.


    Back to the Ecoboost, it seriously tows like a Beast for a v6 gas. I went to Prineville, and Lake Billy a few times this year, bed of the truck loaded, boat loaded, 5 adults. Had to be pushing 8K with gear, people, boat over the trucks normal weight and it pulled all mountains at 60+ no problem, with Cruise on, without, my foot was never more then 1/2 way into it.

    When it comes to towing power the EcoBoost gets my vote for serious muscle. I would stack it to any 1/2 Ton Gas engine out there for Towing.
