How does the new F150 tow a Rover?

Anxious to hear how the F150 pulls, what engine is under hood?
Enjoy Colorado, I miss it!

Beyond belief...massaging front seats!! And electric EVERYTHING...the ecoboostengine is the one to get. Ford raised the bar this time.....Chevy and Ram can't compete. I drove all of them in my search. But hey at $60K it better be the best

Been driving through the night and about 100 miles away from Kansas. The ecoboost 3.5 has been great but it takes some getting use after having a duramax diesel. Got a tricked out Lariat with the max tow. Interior is pretty plush but it's definitely still a truck. A lot of plastic. Tried to get a king ranch in but the dealership couldn't make it happen in time before the move. First Ford I've owned and so far I've been a big fan of it

I'm in Manhattan, KS if you need any assistance on the way through or want to grab a beer let me know. Sadly the D90 is still up in WA for the time being.

Hey man appreciate the offer but we drove straight through. Made it to Denver and averaged a solid 8.5 mpg with going 5-10 over with a uhaul car hauler. The ecoboost handled the rover without any issue. It's an Energy start up that we're just about to kickoff. Looking forward to meeting the Denver crowd

Good luck with the new gig! I'm in that area between an F250 and an F150, my long hauls usually have the 110 behind it.

Superduty for pulling the passes, 150 if you only pull the flats. Hauling up and down vail pass and Eisenhower tunnel in a half ton will get old fast. My buddies with crawlers on the western slope use 150's a lot. Hills aren't as big. If the rover is streetable, the 150 will be great for occasional towing.

What part of town will you be in?

Welcome!

Welcome to Los Angeles of the Rockies. Denver was nice 25 years ago when the economy was in the toilet. Now I'm not so sure-- Denver has become an overcrowded madhouse.


Let us know if you need anything, there is a good network of Rover support here.

All areas of Denver are active. My vote would be for what gives you the shortest commute and the quality of neighborhood you want. I'm in NW Arvada and love it. Close to all the best front range biking trails.
