EB vs 6.2 Comparison?

I looked through the two pages of threads under the EB section and a few pages on the general F150 section and haven't found a really good comparison of the EB vs 6.2. It's possible I may have missed it if it exists, or this topic appears under another heading that isn't obvious.

I'm leaning towards the F150 more so than ever currently. I was debating the SD Diesel for a while, but I'm off that bandwagon for a variety of factors, namely cost and additional hassles with owning a diesel.

Are there torque curves avaiable for the EB vs 6.2? The EB torque curve is what has me most interested in this set up for the times I tow over the summer. I've been trying to follow the EB MPG threads, results seem mixed. It would be great to see EB MPGs vs 6.2 MPGs.

RE: 6.2, i presume it gets better mileage in the 150 vs SD for obvious reasons, weight being a key factor. Seems the 6.2 would perform more effectively and effeciently in the 150, but I haven't been able to find a whole lot of "real world" 6.2 data in the 150.

My last consideration is resale value. I've heard that 85% of 150s going forward will have the EB engine, just like a majority of SDs are diesel. In trying to decide the EB vs 6.2 for the 150, this is a consideration, but not above performance. In my case, I'm ultimately trying to determine the best engine for a truck that will have a 6" lift with 35s, and occasionally tow anywhere between 6500 & 7500 lbs. I believe either the EB or 6.2 are more than capable, just not sure what other considerations to take into account.

Any thoughts are welcome.

Joe Finn is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
This post has the torque and HP curves you're looking for:

The V8 vs EB debate seems to come down to individual opinions on EB predicted reliability when worked hard and how important fuel mileage is to you. I suspect you'll be satisfied with either.

Thank you Joe, this link helps. Hoping to go drive both sometime next week. I have my dealer willing to take a truck up to my neighborhood so I can throw a boat behind the truck and see how it does going up and down some steep grades.
