Powertrains and Towing Capacity

The F-150 comes with a V6 or V8 engine, 6- or 10-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and 4-wheel drive, all of which contribute to its impressive capabilities. A 3.3L V6 engine is the base option, which mates to a 6-speed automatic transmission, delivering smooth, reliable power as a perfect work-fleet model.

Those in search of more power will appreciate the 2.7L turbocharged V6 engine that produces 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, which mates to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine has strong low-end torque for confident towing, giving it an 8,500-pound towing capacity and a 2,500-pound payload capacity.

The luxury F-150 models come with a 5.0L V8 engine that pumps out 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, or a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Limited and Raptor models come with a high-output version of the 3.5L that produces 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. This engine can tow a maximum of 13,200 pounds.

Finally, the Power Stroke® turbo-diesel engine, a 3.0L V6, is rated at 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque with plenty of low-end confidence. Its maximum towing capacity is 11,400 pounds, which comes in only slightly less than the gas-powered models. Explore all Ford F-150 trim levels available for these engine options.


The F-150 comes with a 2-door regular cab, an extended SuperCab with rear-hinged doors and a short rear seat, or a 4-door SuperCrew with a full rear seat and front-hinged doors to accommodate five people. Some models have a feature allowing the seats to fold up against the bed wall for lockable storage space, which pairs with bins under the seats to store cargo that may be more valuable.

Beds are offered in 8-foot, 6-foot-6-inch, and 5-foot-6-inch lengths, depending on the cab configuration. Long-range 36-gallon fuel tanks for long-distance drives.

Towing Technology Features

To add to its capability, the F-150 has numerous technology features that make towing safer and more convenient. Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Trailer Coverage, Lane-Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise Control are all on offer, which give you added visibility of the areas near your vehicle and attached trailer for better merging and passing, as well as peace of mind.

Towing-specific features include a trailer-assist feature that makes hitching simple with a knob, a surround-view camera, and a trailer-tow package with a hitch receiver, wiring harness, and an optimized suspension.
