The Ecoboost is a strong little engine. My dad has the 3.5L in his 2012 F150 Platinum and he uses it to tow around his 8' lawn trailer as well as his 5,000 lb travel trailer. It has some difficulty on lots of hills with the TT but mostly with figuring out the right RPM/shift point, not with power to accelerate.

Edit: Looks like the 2.7L is only an option on Lariat and lower packages
