Be sure to check in the 2014 discussion section - lots of chatter about the new ED in that section.

Default my experience in first two weeks...

ive had mine for 2.5 weeks, put two tanks of gas and have 1800 + miles...so i am still breaking it in. i have towed with it twice and didnt even notice anything back there at all. my first tank averaged 21mpg, and second 22mpg mixed driving and hand calculated. this tank started all highway and 27mpg according to the computer driving 75-80 mph. i dont have the air shocks and the truck is still incredible smooth and handling is impressive. so far i am impressed and will post more as the truck breaks in further. ... oh yeah... and the def has gone down 1/4 mark on the guage.

I only test drove one for about 30 miles. Nice truck and had good power, not sure if it would tow as good as the ecoBoost I had until a few days ago. One thing I can say is that the Dodge 1500 suspension feels unstable when towing (6500 lbs), I had a 10 and a 12 with a Hemi. In my opinion the F-150 ecoBoost is the best 1/2 Ton truck for towing.

With that said, I went back to a Cummins, my 4th one.

I'm a few weeks into ownership and about 3000 miles, most of which has been spent towing. I'm extremely impressed with this engine. I'm loving the fuel economy, with and without trailer. The power delivery is smooth and the torque is phenomenal for snatching a trailer through the mountains. We're high mileage drivers, to the 5+mpg over the EcoBoost Ford is a huge plus, especially in places where diesel and gas cost about the same.
