Ford F-150: Engine Power

The customizable Ford F-150 comes with six available engines. To help you determine which of these motors is the proper fit for your lifestyle, we'll be going over the payload and towing capabilities of each one.

2.7L V6

First up is the 2.7L V6. With 400 lb-ft of torque, this V6 engine reaches a maximum conventional towing capacity of 8,500 pounds when properly configured. As for the maximum payload, you'll be able to haul as much as 2,470 pounds!

3.3L V6

Next up, we have another V6: a 3.3L V6. The 265 lb-ft of torque generated by this engine results in a 7,700-pound maximum conventional towing capacity and 1,990-pound maximum payload capacity when properly equipped.

5.0L V8

The 5.0L V8 delivers 400 lb-ft of torque-just like the 2.7L V6. However, the output is different than the 2.7L V6. The maximum conventional towing capacity reaches 11,600 pounds and the maximum payload peaks at 3,270 pounds when properly configured.

3.5L V6

The 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 is an impressive engine, generating up to 470 lb-ft of torque. When properly configured, it has a 13,200-pound maximum conventional towing capacity with a 3,230-pound maximum payload capacity-a powerful option!

3.0L V6

Another V6 engine, the 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 churns out 440 lb-ft of torque. With it, you can tow up to 11,500 pounds and toss up to 1,940 pounds of payload in the bed with the right configuration and equipment.

H.O. 3.5L EcoBoost® V6

Last but not least, we come to the strongest F-150 engine: a H.O. 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 with 510 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you'll have a 11,100-pound maximum conventional towing capacity and 1,520-pound maximum payload capacity when properly equipped.

Ford Ranger: Engine Power

Perhaps the Ford F-150 isn't for you. Instead, you may want to consider the Ford Ranger. While it only comes with one engine, the Ranger is regularly acclaimed for its ability to tow and haul tremendously heavy loads.

The 2.3L EcoBoost® engine generates 310 lb-ft of torque. With all that power, the Ranger achieves a 1,860-pound maximum payload capacity and 7,500-pound maximum towing capacity with the proper equipment.
