2020 Ford F-150 Towing Capacity

If you need to tow a big load, torque is critical. A truck should also be as light as possible, so it can tow more.

The F-150 body is made up of military-grade aluminum alloy, which is about 700 pounds lighter than previous generations. The use of high-strength military-grade aluminum allows for the right thickness of material without the extra weight.

With the high-strength steel frame and body setup, the F-150 is ready for any towing job.

The 2020 F-150 can tow from 5,100 pounds up to 13,200 pounds, depending on how the truck is set up in terms of cab size, which engine is configured, and more.

With this much power, you'll find that getting the job done-whether that be for work or play-is possible. Thanks to the 13,200-pound maximum towing capacity, you can pack up your family for a weekend camping trip in your trailer, hit the mountains with your horses for a freeing ride, or hook up your boat for a day on the lake.

With this impressive capacity, your weekends just got a whole lot more interesting.

Payload Capacity and More

In addition to a powerful towing capacity with the Ford F-150, you'll find you have a high payload, too. This way, you can load up your dirt bikes for a day out with your son on the path less traveled, bring home rocks to add onto your driveway, or get all the supplies needed to finally build the garden you've always talked about.

This is all possible because of the maximum payload of 3,270 pounds (when properly equipped), along with the 400 lb-ft of torque when your Ford F-150 is equipped with the available 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine, which knows how to deliver. The instant acceleration and performance offered with this engine is exactly what's needed when you have a heavy load to haul.

Plus, you can customize the bed of your truck to fit your payload needs. For starters, you can choose the available remote tailgate release, which will open and lower with the press of a button. This is perfect if who need easy access to your truck bed while your hands are full.

Do you find yourself working into the wee hours of the night? Of course you do, because you're a truck driver who won't quit until the job is complete.

Luckily, you can light up the night with the optional LED cargo box lighting package. This combined with the optional LED mirror-mounted spotlights means you'll be working on your time and not the sun's.

F-150 Towing Features

It depends on the type of towing you're doing, but the Trailer Tow Package offered in the F-150 may end up being a necessary part of the truck you want to buy.

The package includes:

  • Class IV trailer hitch receiver
  • Smart Trailer Tow Connector
  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist™

When it comes to reversing with your trailer with ease, you'll have the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ feature to thank.

The helpful features included with this system make backing up as simple as turning a knob. When in reverse, simply turn the knob in the direction you want the trailer to move. From there, the system will steer and turn your truck with trailer in the direction you want to go.

Thanks to this feature, you'll be spending far less time looking over your shoulder while backing up your Ford F-150. Instead, you'll be getting to work or playing with your outdoor toys in no time at all.

Plus, strategically placed cameras allow you to see what's happening all around the truck.

The available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ comes with a rearview camera image that lets you see which direction the trailer is moving. Meanwhile, the standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking can activate the brakes to help prevent a potential collision with another vehicle or a pedestrian.

Don't Forget About Comfort

Just because you've got over 10,000 pounds of cargo behind you doesn't mean you can't enjoy the ride.

Sit back and enjoy the optional two-tone leather-trim seats. Not only does this upholstery help you stay relaxed with the optional heated and ventilated seat options, but it's also durable and easy to clean.

Plus, with the optional SYNC® 3 system, all your favorite multimedia features are just one tap or voice command away. That's because this system includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. These features make it possible to instantly sync your smartphone to the 8-inch multimedia touchscreen display.

Afterward, you'll see the similar screen of your smartphone combined with the infotainment features. Once you've found the playlist you want to listen to as you're headed to the mountains, you and your passengers will be surrounded by crisp audio, thanks to the available B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. With this, you'll have 10 speakers that have been strategically placed throughout the interior of your cabin so that everyone can feel like they've scored the best seats to your favorite artist's concert.
