2022 Ford F-150 Towing a trailer

The F-150 perfectly embodies the Built Ford Tough® reputation that’s so well-known among Matteson drivers, whether it’s horsepower or towing capacity. What is the towing capacity of the Ford F-150? The 2023 Ford F-150 towing capacity goes up to a massive 14,000 pounds, depending on which engine or options you choose. Let’s take a closer look at how this truck’s trailering capabilities break out by engine.

What Is the Towing Capacity of a Ford F-150 With a V8 Engine?

The new F-150 offers several engine options. They’re all powerful, but they each have their own towing capacity. So, what is the towing capacity of a Ford F-150 equipped with the V8 engine, and how does it compare to the Hybrid V6? You might be surprised that the heaviest towing capacity of this truck isn’t delivered by either of those engines, but instead is accomplished by the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. Whichever engine option you choose, you’ll be able to take our New Lenox roads like a boss. Check out the towing capacity and other specs of each engine below.
