    2015 F150 3.5 Ecoboost Towing MPG

    Wondered if anyone who has the new F150 with the 3.5 Ecoboost has towing MPG numbers.

    I have a 30' travel trailer that weighs 5700# dry. Looks like that weight wouldn't be an issue for the truck to pull, but wondered what the MPG might be.

    I'm really hoping to get better than the 8-9 I was getting with my Tundra.

    I wouldn't expect much better mpg. Probably unnoticeable vs the tundra. Its the big box your towing that is the issue.
    Although the towing experience might be better/more enjoyable with the turbos..

    Won't do much better.. When towing with the Eco, you get into the turbos more, so that = more gas..

    I get 10-11 mpg avg towing, but if there is a head wind, forget it!

    Now, towing performance can't be beat! It tows my #5000 TT awesome so I don't fret the mpg's!

    Good luck!

    I towed a 29.5' TT (5124# dry and 7623# GVWR) for about 2 years and generally got between 9 and 11 mpg. This included two trips from Florida to Texas in wind and rain. Even though this is better mpg than most get towing, the big difference over previous tow vehicle is power. Just bought a new 35' TT and haven't taken it out yet.

    Mine is the 2.7L Eco.....I tow a 5000lb travel trailer. I get about 14mpg, little less if there is a heavy head wind or a lot of hill climbing. With my old Sierra, I was lucky if I got 6-7mpg....

    I have a 2016 SCrew with 3.55 and it pulled my 35' TT that weighted close 8,000 # loaded. Avg about 11 mpg with a mix small hills here in north GA. As far as the fuel is concerned, my bud has a 2014 Tundra with all the bells and whistles. I do better than him when it comes to towing and city driving, not so much on the highway over 65mph, but we are close!

    You guys are gluttons for punishment to your trucks with those big TT's. If I was towing something like that on a regular basis I'd have to go diesel.

    Towed all kinds of stuff for 45 years, never had issues with tow vehicles when properly equipped for towing. Always had V-8's in the past, none towed as well as this puny V6 Ecobeast. Also, towed with 7.3 diesel,it was like a slug.I like the new 6.7 PS, but can't justify getting one for tooling around town with when not towing.
    My boat weighs 8300 dry and the truck pulls it like a champ in BC's mountains with 6-7 grades.
