Ford pickup trucks are built to handle almost anything that is thrown their way. They can maneuver over rough terrain and navigate through tough road conditions. Not to mention, they are designed to tow a hefty load. Whether taking a look at the Ford F-150 or the Ford Super Duty, it's clear Ford has planned and manufactured its pickup trucks to excel in the towing category. So, if you're wondering how much your Ford pickup truck can tow, look no further.
Each Ford pickup is built to tow certain amount. Maximum towing capacity depends on a number of factors, including trim level, engine type, axle ratio, drivetrain, and cab configuration. The Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty also offer a few standard and optional features designed to improve the towing experience and provide added confidence while towing. Available features include Pro Trailer Backup Assist, Trailer Sway Control, and Tow/Haul Mode.
This available feature allows you the ability to control how much the trailer turns, making it even easier to launch a boat and maneuver in driveways or other tight spaces.
Trailer Sway Control utilizes selective wheel braking and reduced engine power to keep everything under control and provide added confidence when towing large pieces of equipment.
By adjusting engine braking and selective gearing, this available feature allows for improved control when towing or hauling large equipment, especially on steep downhill grades.
It's no surprise that the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty offer best-in-class towing capability. Ford knows trucks and understands the importance of offering drivers a truck that is built to get the job done.
