Fixng to buy a new Ford Expedition 3.5L V6 for the wife. Question is how will this vehicle pull the boat. 2009 Champion 210. I've got a F250 so not a big issue but may want to tow the boat on occasion.

Agreed. My Ecoboost pulls circles around my 2004 F150 5.4.

Just make sure to run 3 things at every oil change. Motorcraft oil and filters, 1 bottle of Lucas deep system fuel cleaner threw 1st full tank, then bottle of lucas upper cylinder lubricate threw the 2nd full tank and it willbe good to go. Got 150,000 on ours with no carbon issues or oil related issues only thing i have done is changed brakes and spark plugs.

My wife person has one, and we pulled our 22' CC Boat about 700 miles round trip this summer and it performed well. I was impressed with it.
