Really? I have a friend who now drives a Ford because his Dodge 1500, HEMI wouldn't pull his Featherlight aluminum horse trailer empty in OD and only got about 10 MPG with that empty trailer on. He got the truck new and 6 months later it was gone.

Look at the torque cruve on the V8 compaired to the EcoBoost. Torque is what makes an engine pull, not HP. I know you love your FIAT/RAM HEMI's but there are other considerations besides having the HEMI tag on the truck. I myself never run an engine over about 3K unless I really have to. Now we will not talk about how many RPM's I ran my 68 GTO at when I was 19 but I loved making that 400 scream!

The guy on this ford website, "stdan" is the name he goes by on here says he's lucky if he gets 9-10 mpg with 6500 pounds with the ecoboost, and its a ford website, gaurentee a hemi is far ahead of that

Do you understand the point of the ecoboost? It's not to get better mileage while towing. The point is to be able to get the mileage of a naturally aspirated 3.5 and have to power of a V-8 when under full boost. Not only that, but being able to run ultra-lean because of the direct injection while in a low-load situation. The Hemi MAY do a bit better than 9-10 mpg while towing 6500lbs, but not much better. I have managed about 12mpg(10mpgU.S) towing some where in that weight range with a 5.0L Chevy. All trucks get about the same mileage, except diesels. On a good day a 1995-2006 diesel(minus the 6.5) could probably get around 14-15 mpg towing up to around 5000lbs. A gas will never touch those numbers.

Might of got 10mpg, torque does pull, but the right gears help a ton to, same gears in the ford and dodge the hemi will outpull the ecoboost especially with the 8 speed hands down
