Towing with the new Raptor

How much can I tow with the new Ecoboost Raptor? Anyone know?

I found a video of a new F-150 with the 2.7L EcoBoost, towing trailers.

Wonder if they'll tart it up with the Trailer Backup Assist just announced for the F-150...

Quote:
When activated, the truck’s speed and steering are controlled automatically while the driver uses the knob to direct the trailer.

x2. I can handle it.

That said, it can't hurt to have the feature as an option for those who need it.

its supposed to be just a dial under the backup camera screen. I would imagine that controlling the truck and trailer from whats essentially a volume knob is far more consuming then countersteering proper LOL...
