And we comfortably tow all summer long with our 2011 hauling a 9000# passport elite 34MB. Our first and only upgrade was the Hensley Arrow with HD bars. My problem now is ensuring that I watch my speed. It tows so effortlessly and smoothly under all condotions that you need to remind yourself that speed is your enemy if things go sideways. Apart from that , the expedition is one of the best large SUVs for towing that money can buy. IMHO, obviously. I'd love to have the extra oomph you EcoBoost boys have, but that's just gravy.
