What are the specs on your chevy? Ford has a 5L and 6.2L engine and I think both are rated for 11,000 lbs towing. The 6.2L has more power and would be better for towing the trailer.

FYI i got a 2012 f150 5.0 crew cab for the ****ty 5.3 crew cab.
i have to say i sure like the ford ! i have always owned GM but this new ford made me a believer! all i can say is chevy has a old out dated plat-form and the ford is by far the best damn truck i have ever drove! the 5.0 is a beast when it comes to pulling my trailer! it rides like a truck shooed but car like all at the same time the ford is so nimble its like a much smaller truck as where the chevy feels like its a 10 ton tank!
