      How about comparing an f150 with the 3.5 EcoBoost vs an f250 with the gas V8.... That's more apples to apples

      I'd like to see you put a Edge tuner on that F-150, and see what it really can do!

      You always want to buy EXACTLY what you need. Do you do that with anything else? I only need a wheelbarrow to tend my garden but I'll buy this dump truck instead. I only need a 30.06 for deer hunting but I'll get this 50 cal sniper rifle... need to make sure I have more than I need right? Do your research, stop being a lemming.

      I have a F350. I'd say if you are towing a horsetrailer or rv trailer I'd for a 3/4 or 1 ton just for stopping power, weight etc. Imo

      You feel the trailer more in the F150 because the tire pressure is lower than the F250. 35psi vs 65psi make a big difference in, side motion.

      gas vehicles are no match when it comes to real towing long distances up hills down hills wet condition would also play a big part in the truck sizes too, but for your average person a 150 is a very good choice and can do a lot

      The one important factor you missed... the price of the fuel. When it comes down to MPG what ur really talking about is price per mile. The cost of Diesel vs 89oct is a big difference in price per mile

      They can't get one, most all are special order. They don't want to be correct, they just want views.

      HDPP towing did you delete your comment because you found out how wrong you actually are? I got a notice you replied to me, but I can't find it. Go crawl under your back end and read the maximum weight it can handle, then come back and tell all of us just how much more your precious HDPP can tow over a Max Tow Equipped F-150. Towing is limited to the LEAST rated item, and that is the receiver. Yes I AM an expert in this stuff, been hauling loads since 1988 OTR, so I know the rules and regulations quite well. I also understand the physics involved with hauling long heavy loads, so please don't try to be something your not when it comes to this.

      This is Bull Shit. TFL should be in jail promoting overloading a F150 4X4 CC 7,050lb. GVWR truck.

      Don't you need to put in a fuel cosumption adjustment for the intermittent DEF clean out burn which may or may not occur during a short row?

      Kent is experienced with inserting the Shank. never just the tip 1:14




      Do you have the shank? I have the Shank
      Pull it out just a little more. Oh, did I get too far? No you're fine.
      Wiggle in a little further. There we go, we're good.

      The f150 had a 3.31 gear ratio? Who would use that to tow heavy with? They make a 3.55 and a 3.73 set of gears, the 3.31’s are for grocery getters... My 2015 2.7 had 3.55 and I wanted deeper gears than that.

      I have a 2018 Ford F-150 with the Coyote engine, I tow a 25 foot Airstream and get 12.4 mpg but I'm running long tube headers with stock exhaust and hotter coils with copper plugs. When I'm not towing I I can get 25.3 mpg if I keep my lead foot under control.

      My old 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pulls 7,800 lbs at highway speeds three times a week and averages 10.8 mpg. And I thought that was bad. Anyone that spends 60 grand on a pickup has way too much money to spend.

      Great test... I just hope when I go out and buy that F-150 Ford paid you guys to love and I'm pulling my trailer......
      1) I never have to go up a hill,
      2) have to emergency break,
      3) have to change lanes
      4) encounter strip crosswind,
      5) have to go down through the mountains for an extended distance.

      It’s not a 9000 lbp trailer. It’s maximum of 7500 lbp. 2 tanks of water is just near by 4500 lbp

      Why do the lights blink? Is it because of refresh rate?

      Yes, bigger trucks provide a more stable platform and superior handling under load.

      Not a fair comparison. Useless. Not the first time either. Wrongly equipped for comparison.
