I have a 2016 F150 with the 3.5- 160,000 miles and not an ounce of problem and I live on a gravel road. Its been to Montana, Colorado twice, Wyoming Twice, Northern Minnesota countless times, The Ozarks, actually just a bit of everywhere. I pull a 28 Ft camper with it during the summer with zero issues. That being said, my next truck will be a 3/4 ton no matter what, now we have 2 tractors, do some wood burning/log hauling, etc. Just need the extra size for stopping/control. I dont doubt it can do it- but I also wouldnt try to talk anyone INTO a new truck either.
