What Factors Affect My F-150 Towing Capacity?

How much weight you can safely tow behind your new Ford truck is affected by a variety of factors, including bed and cab design, powertrain choice, axle ratio and more.

Powertrain Choice

Different engines have different capability. Generally, the bigger, more powerful engines are better suited to towing. The 2022 F-150 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 makes over 400 horsepower and is the engine you’ll need for hitting the maximum F-150 towing capacity.

Axle Ratio

The axle ratio is essentially indicative of how power coming from the engine is transferred to the driven wheels. When you order the F-150 heavy-duty trailer package, you get a unique rear axle ratio that can handle even the largest trailers.

Bed and Cab Designs

The 2022 Ford F-150 offers a variety of cab styles and bed designs, which affect how much you can ultimately tow. Review the latest Ford towing guide or contact Lynch Ford to learn which configuration makes the most sense for your towing needs.

What Is the 2022 F-150 Towing Capacity?

The 2022 Ford F-150 tows up to 14,000 pounds when properly equipped. That means you’ll need the 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, the SuperCrew® or SuperCab layout and the 6.5-foot bed. Also plan on opting for rear-wheel drive and the 3.73 axle ratio.

Not interested in that exact configuration? No worries! You can still tow some serious weight with any F-150 trim or model. The base Ford F-150 V6, for instance, can still tow up to 8,100 pounds with any bed or cab if you order the 3.73 rear gears. And the 2.7-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8 engines both can tow 10,000 pounds or more. No matter what F-150 you want, you’re getting world-class capability.

2.7-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo V610,000 lbs.
5.0-liter V813,200 lbs.
