snakyjake 5pts Truck Trend, I need this to be more real. I need a 1/2 ton truck for towing.Has Ford solved the carbon build-up around intake valves of the EcoBoost? DI gas vs. diesel for towing? What about engine braking?What about engine/transmission cooling when towing up steep grade for a long period?And let's get more into transmissions and suspensions. I'm not sold on gasoline for towing.
