Agree that a F-150 eco-boost towing a 7,000 trailer and would not know the trailer is back there - simply is not true.

I roll my eyes when I hear that comment.

I, on occasion tow a 7,000lb. Keystone Vantage 25RBS trailer with a 2012 F-450. No WD, just hook and go. Even that truck 'kinda' knows the trailer is back there. MPG drops from 16.5 empty to 13 towing the Vantage trailer.

I would guess an eco-boost F-150 mpg would drop from 19 to 11.
