    Hello,

    re " I'm retiring my 2010 VW Touareg TDI which has towed about 90,000 miles over the past five years.

    The new tow vehicle is a 2016 XLT with the 2.7 liter EcoBoost and optional 3.73 axle.

    Before that, I towed four years with a 2005 F-150 with 5.4 liter V8. It did well. The new 2.7 liter has 5 more horsepower and 10 more ft. lbs. of torque, plus two more gears. I think it will do quite well.

    I'll keep you informed, good or bad."

    I was wondering how it has gone towing with the 2.7Ecoboost. We have Gen 1 3.5litre towing a 25Flying Cloud which has worked well (has heavy duty payload and tow). I am debating replacing it with either a 2.7 (preferred) or a 3.5. How does the 2.7 do on hills (and on downhills)? With 1600 lb payload (as you mention in a post) have you had any payload issues? The 25FB we have has a heavy tongue weight.

    thanks
    joe

    I won't be able to make the "Bridge Rally" after all, but I appreciated your welcoming response.

    Hi, new to the community hoping you can help me out with some info on your towing mirrors. I have an 05 xlt 4x4 supercrew and can not find part numbers for the fuse block and heat/ac control moule w/defrost for mirrors. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance. Feel free to e-mail me aceeone@aol.com

    Thanks for the appreciation for the Lincoln Blackwood. Do you know of anyone else pulling an Airstream with one? Sorry it took so long to respond.
