I think that has a 5.0 V8 in it. I didn't think the FX4 came in a 6

That's an ecoboost FX4, awesome tow vehicle, just a little thirsty under load IMO

it has plenty of power. I have pulled quite a bit heavier than the xstar and it still has plenty of power still, but only gets 8-10 mpg with that kind of weight. I was on the fence with a f250 diesel but didn't want to sacrifice ride quality and the quite ride. Overall I'm happy with it.
