Pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150, offer many features that appeal to Maitland, Orlando, and Winter Park shoppers, from their powerful engines to impressive payloads. For many, though, the towing capacity is the most important quality.

What is the Ford F-150 towing capacity? The F-150 can tow up to 13,200 pounds conventionally, but we want to break down the specs further for you. Discover the fine details in this review and reach out to us at Peacock Ford to learn more!

Ford F-150 Towing Capacity in Depth

Depending on the configuration you choose, the F-150 models equipped for towing can trailer anywhere between 5,000 and 13,200 pounds. At the low end of that scale, you'll have enough power to tow a small boat or hard-side RV. At the high end, large boats, camping trailers, and car haulers are in play.

To achieve that max tow rating, you'll want to equip your F-150 with the High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost® V6, the SuperCrew cab, the 5.5-foot bed, and rear-wheel drive (RWD). It's the only combination that gets you all the way to that 13,200-pound figure.

The High-Output EcoBoost®, with an incredible 510 lb-ft of torque on tap, makes towing of this caliber not only possible, but an easy reality. All that torque comes in handy when you need to tow!

Technology: Ford Towing Made Smart

The Ford F-150 has many features to make towing easier than ever. As part of the standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ system, you'll get Trailer Sway Control to keep the trailer balanced on slippery roads or around winding turns.

Meanwhile, a standard smart trailer tow connector alerts you to connectivity, lighting, or battery issues. Available features for towing include Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, which keeps the truck and trailer in sync when backing up.

An optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) offers trailer coverage, so it can alert you when another vehicle is in your blind spot or alongside the trailer. You can change lanes with more confidence!

F-150 Payload & Cargo Considerations

Towing is just one way to move belongings from Point A to Point B. For the smaller stuff, you can find plenty of space in the cabin or cargo bed. The SuperCab and SuperCrew cabs feature a fully flat load floor as well as storage under the rear seats.

The cargo box itself comes in three different lengths-5.5-foot, 6.5-foot, and 8-foot-and offers available LED lighting, so you can easily load and unload after the sun goes down. All told, this truck has a maximum payload of 3,270 pounds, so you can stack that cargo bed high with everything you need.
