When you’re looking for your next pickup truck, you’re definitely going to want to look into how much you can carry and pull around—otherwise known as the towing capacity and maximum payload.

Fortunately, the F-150 excels in this category—and among many others—so our team at Internet Auto Boise wanted to put together this Ford F-150 towing guide so drivers in Boise, Meridian, and Nampa know what they can get out of their new pickup.

Ford F150

First, let’s look at some numbers regarding just how much strength the F-150 has.

Strength in Numbers: F-150 Towing and Maximum Payload

The Ford F-150 is known for its powerhouse strength, especially when it comes to what it can pull around. When properly equipped, the F-150 can pull up to 12,200 pounds. So, feel free to hitch up your boat, trailer, ATV—you name it!

A lot of us use our pickups for work, and that more than likely means carrying tools or materials to the next jobsite. In that case, you’ll be happy to know that the F-150’s maximum payload is 3,270 pounds, which is outstanding for its class.

Okay, so we’ve got some great numbers when it comes to towing and payload capacities, but what about how much space there in is in the cargo box. The F-150 doesn’t disappoint in this area, either, thanks to its 77.4 cubic feet of space—allowing room for everything from plywood and furniture to luggage for your next family trip.

Ford F-150 is a Truck Ahead of its Time: Towing Technology

Ford F-150

The F-150 is definitely able to pull a lot of weight around, but now it has some assistance. Technology in pickups has gravitated to towing assistance, and the F-150 is a prime example of advanced towing technology.

The F-150 offers a range of towing-assistance features that make pulling around your boat or trailer that much easier. Such available features include:

  • Trailer Sway Control: This feature works alongside the Roll Stability Control™ function to ensure the stability of your F-150 while towing a trailer.
  • Tow/Haul Mode: When you’re towing or carrying an exceptionally heavy load, this feature gives your truck a little extra boost.
  • Hill Start Assist: This feature helps the F-150 move up a hill without the worry of rolling backwards, especially when towing something.
  • Trailer Brake Controller: Balances out the truck brakes and electric trailer brakes by using brake input, speed, and the ABS.
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®): Alerts the driver if something appears in a blind spot using Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Monitoring.
