    Yea, power felt great. It pulled over every grade to 5000 ft, never slowed down. Obviously it needed more RPMs, but it was great.

    We have Tahoe next month, so I'll be pulling it over 7000 ft. Thats the next one!

    So, I am assuming that under "normal" towing on flatter groumd, you tow in the 65 to 70 range? Wish I could do that!

    Hah, I have to if I want it to shift into 6. It wants to stay in 5 on tow haul mode at 60mph!

    My 17 ecoboost EL towed my trailer fully loaded including fresh water tanks (6200+ pounds) up to 5k ft this past weekend and I risked forgetting the trailer was even behind me, simply amazing. I set cruise to 70 and on the open highway it maintained speed without downshifting from 6th except once on a steep hill. On the back roads winding up the mountain to our camp site, it was as effortless as driving with nothing behind me. I'm terribly impressed with the towing chops of this truck. I am running a 5 star performance tow tune which did add some hp and torque though.
