Ford F-150 Towing Capacity

 

Tough pickup trucks can come through in almost any situation. With lots of power to help you get everything from point A to point B, trucks like the Ford F-150 are a big help when you need to carry big cargo around Philadelphia and Warminster.

But how much can it really tow? Fred Beans Ford of Doylestown looks at the 2018 Ford F-150 towing capacity.

2018 Ford F-150 Towing Capacity & Power

 The 2018 Ford F-150 gives you lots of power under the hood to tow whatever you need. There are five choices for which engine can power this versatile truck.

The first option is a 3.3L V6 engine that gets 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. It's fitted with twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) to optimize power. This gives it a towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.

This engine comes with a 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. All the other available engines are paired with an impressive 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.

The second engine is a 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine that gets 325 horsepower and up to 400 lb-ft of torque. This helps it tow up to 9,000 pounds.

There's a big jump in size with the next engine. It's a 5.0L V8 that also has Ti-VCT. It gets 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. This gives it a towing capacity of 11,600 pounds.

Returning to Ford EcoBoost® technology, the next choice offers the most torque. It's a 3.5L EcoBoost engine that gets 375 horsepower and gets up to 470 lb-ft of torque. This added torque helps it tow 13,200 pounds.

Lastly, the latest engine available is a 3.0L Power Stroke Diesel engine. It offers 250 horsepower and 400 lb-ft. With diesel technology, it can pull up to 11,400 pounds.

2018 Ford F-150 Towing Technology

With all that power under the hood, and the ability to tow all that cargo, the 2018 Ford F-150 is also packed with technology.

A 360-degree camera with Split-view display gives you all around awareness and can help you when lining up to connect with your trailer.

Once you've got everything hooked up, the Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature uses another rear-view camera to show you the path your trailer is on when you're backing up.

When you're on the road, you'll want to make sure everything is stable too. Trailer Sway Control monitors your trailer's stability and can apply braking if necessary to maintain control.

You'll also be kept informed of everything that's going on with your cargo with the Smart Trailer Tow Connector. This feature sends alerts and updates about the trailer status to the instrument cluster on your dashboard.

2018 Ford F-150 Truck Bed

As a tough truck, the 2018 Ford F-150 also wants you to be able to utilize the truck bed. That's why it's made from a durable high-strength military-grade aluminum-alloy and loaded with features.

There's easy access to the truck bed with a remote tailgate release. Once that's down, you can install a bed extender to give it 18-inches of additional space. You can even load up at night thanks to that LED carbo box lighting.

If you're transporting some bikes or an ATV and don't feel like strapping it to a flat bed, stowable loading ramps are available to wheel them up onto the bed.

Just like its towing capacity, the 2018 Ford F-150 can carry a lot in the back. It's capable of carrying a payload of up to 3,270 pounds.
