March 4th, 2021 by

In terms of drivability, size, and advanced components, few rivals can match the 2021 Ford F-150. And none can match its towing ability. That’s why if you need a truck for work or play, it’s time to check out the new Ford F-150 for sale.

Tons of Horsepower and Torque

Why is the Ford F-150 so good at towing? Because it was designed by Ford engineers who know the demands of the modern worksite.

The base engine in this Ford truck is a 3.3-liter V6 that offers 290 horsepower and 265 lb-f. of torque, but that’s just for starters. To unleash even more capability, you can go with one of these configurations:

· Turbocharged 2.7-liter V6: 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque

· Turbocharged 3.5-liter V6: 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque

· 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6: 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque

· 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6: 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque

· 5.0-liter V8: 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque

So, How Much Can It Tow?

When properly equipped, your Ford F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds. In order to reach this level of performance, you’ll need to opt for the 3.5-liter V6 in either the SuperCab or SuperCrew model.

The tow ratings in the other trims aren’t too shabby either, as the V8 engine will let you tow up to 13,000 pounds. You’ll be able to tow 12,100 pounds with the turbodiesel version too.

Advanced Towing Components

To help make towing easier, you can equip your Ford F-150 with many advanced features. With the Tow Technology package, you will get trailer backup assist, a trailer brake controller, and trailer reverse guidance.

The Trailer Tow package comes with a pro trailer backup assist, the brake controller, and a class IV trailer hitch receiver. And if you with the Max Trailer Tow package, you will also get an electronic-locking rear axle and an upgraded rear bumper.
