Sorry I have to strongly disagree with the V8, the Ford Ecoboost six cylinder in a f150 has more towing capacity, more torque, etc. than their own small block V8. The capacities are better than almost every small block V8 by any auto manufacturer. That little 6 is a beast! And with the Max Tow package that little 6 gives you your 11,000 pound tow capacity you're looking for.A true tow vehicle is a full frame pickup truck or SUV with a V8 engine and a heavy duty transmission that is equipped with a trans-fluid cooling system.
