Default 2019 3.5L Ecoboost Towing MPG expected with 7,500 pound TT

I am considering purchasing a 2019 3.5L Ecoboost with the 3.55 rear gear.

Can anyone provide feedback on the towing mileage that I might expect when towing a 7,500 pound TT.

Travel speed would be 62 - 65 miles per hour.

You can assume flat terrain with minimal wind speed and regular gas.

Thank You

Figure 9-10. If you get 12, figure you are lucky.

Make sure to read the PAYLOAD sticker on the door jamb, then calculate whether the truck can handle the loaded weight of your TT. Lots of posts go over the math.

I think I got 11 on my 18, but it was only 220 miles RT. I'll know more come August when I take a two week jaunt through the Midwest.

I'd like to know the conditions under which someone is towing a TT and getting 16MPG! I can get over 20MPG at 30 MPH on the flat towing my Travel trailer. But how often does that happen! On my last 3,000 mile trip I averaged 11.1 with cruise set at 67MPH where possible and lots of wind and hills.
