Per the video on Ford's website, interesting that the 2.7L fell behind the 5.3L Chevy by a few seconds when the temperature started dropping. Good for hot climate people but what if you live in a cold climate area for most of the year? But most people will not floor it all the way when towing. Still impressive on how it smokes the Ecodiesel Ram, but I saw a 0-60 video somewhere online and it wasn't too impressive for the Ram.
I really thought that the max tow ratings would go up to around 12K with the truck weighing so much less. I guess with the same frame, or close to the same frame for 2015, Ford is not willing to stress it any more that the current tow rating.
In changing times, one must live by unchanging principles.
If you ask me they did the same thing with the 5.0L, I think it's underrated/weak tune so it doesn't outshine the Eco.
I completely agree with you, in the mustang its rated at 435 and it was 420 in the 2014 'stang, this proves the 5.0's are capable of so much more but ford chooses to neuter them so they can make the ecoboost engines look like the go to engine for performance, towing, hauling, economy. Nothing against the ecoboost but if they already chopped the 6.2 off the line up, how much more time can we give the 5.0?
