2020 Ford F-150 Hauling and Towing Abilities

One major perk to owning a pickup truck is the vehicle’s ability to haul and tow at your leisure. When you’re driving a car or SUV, you have to be cautious about the size and weight of what you haul and tow, but with a pickup truck, you have the freedom to purchase a camper, boat or trailer without having to worry about maxing out the vehicle’s towing abilities. The 2020 Ford F-150 has great hauling and towing capabilities, making it ready to handle all your hauling needs. So, how much weight can a 2020 Ford F-150 tow? Let’s dive into the legendary truck’s hauling and towing abilities.

How Much Can the 2020 Ford F-150 Tow?

The 2020 Ford F-150 is available in seven different trim level options and has six different engine options. The trim level and engine option play an important role in determining the towing abilities. For example, the 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine has a maximum towing ability of 13,200 pounds, while the standard towing ability is around 8,000 pounds.

What’s the Payload on the Ford F-150?

The 2020 Ford F-150 bed is made from lightweight, high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy and when paired with the right engine, it can lead to outstanding payload abilities.
