Uh, but CR did test the Ecoboost while towing:

Towing capacities vary by wheelbase, axle ratio, and drivetrain. But with most variations, the EcoBoost V6 is rated to tow several hundred pounds more than the 5.0-liter V8. The V6 is rated for 8,200 pounds, and the V8 is rated for 7,700 pounds. While pulling our 7,500-pound test trailer, the V6 truck took 16.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph, which is competitive for this class; the V8 required 17.8 seconds. The optional integrated trailer-brake control works well.

If you're saying they didn't provide separate mpg figures for towing and unloaded, ok, fine.
