Ford F-150 Towing Capacity
Pick-up trucks like Ford F-150, now morphed into luxury machines, shouldn’t make you question their towing capacity. They are as sturdy and hardy as ever, powered by the impressive twin-turbo V-6, and not the red-blooded V-8. The twin-turbo V-6 engines offer better fuel economy than V-8.
Ford F-150 can tow up to 13,200 lbs when properly equipped. Without the trailer tow, however, an F-150 can tug up to 7000 lbs.
The base engine in Ford F-150 is a 3.3-liter gasoline V-6 capable of producing 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque supported by Ti-VCT that is a twin independent variable cam. Fuel efficiency and power improvement come from Ford's port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI), while auto stop-start technology saves gas when the truck is motionless. The 3.3-liter V-6 has six-speed automatic transmissions. This engine is the best option in the entry-level F-150 XL or F-150 XLT.
