RE: F150 w/ 3.5L POWERboost towing experiences?

DITTO !!! On Payload Payload Payload Every truck has multiple ratings for towing, braking, tire loads, axle loads, payload, and GVWR. True towing capacity is limited to the weakest link in the overall ratings, and in most cases, the weak link is payload. If an added battery / electric motor adds to the trucks curb weight, it's going to have a lower payload. Manufacturers build their lighter vehicles, more with comfort in mind, than carrying / towing heavy loads. Keep in mind, when they say "this model is rated to tow XXXXX lbs", what they are really saying is, under prime conditions, this model can tow that XXXXX lbs. What they are not saying is, if Joe the plumber wants all the bells and whistles in his new truck, it will be to heavy to carry the tongue / pin weight from a trailer weighing XXXXX lbs. Then, when he loads up the wife, kids, and camping toys, that truck maybe so heavy it can't tow anything. That mythical "max tow weight rating" is an up to number, as is the truck's payload number. It can tow XXXXX lbs "or" it can carry XXXX lbs, not both at the same time.
