The F-150's Towing & Hauling Capabilities

When you have the right equipment in the 2018 Ford F-1501, you'll be able to tow anywhere from the standard 5,000 pounds to a whopping towing maximum of 13,200 pounds. With this much capability to offer, this model has earned the title of best-in-class when it comes to towing2.

The F-150 also tops its class when it comes to hauling. On top of its ability to tow 13,200 pounds, this model can also haul a best-in-class2 maximum payload of 3,720 pounds when properly equipped. When you combine the F-150's capabilities, you'll be able to move an unbelievable 16,470 pounds.

How the F-150 Can Move So Much

The 2018 Ford F-150's capabilities are made possible by its impressive equipment. To tow its maximum trailering weight of 13,200 pounds, you'll want to opt for the available 3.5-L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 engine. This high-performance engine puts out 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque to make these towing capabilities possible.

If hauling is your priority, you'll want to opt for the F-150's other available engine. The available 5.0-L V8 engine delivers a 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. This different combination of power makes it possible for the F-150 to carry so much weight in the bed.

The F-150 also provides you with several standard stability features to keep you on course even when you're towing and hauling the maximum amount of weight. You can count on AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) to keep an eye on the motion of your vehicle and your trailer and automatically counteract any swaying so you can tow with confidence.
