Drivers in State College, Lewistown, and Bellefonte who turn to Ford vehicles, whether it’s a solid F-series pickup truck or a heavy-duty crossover SUV like the Explorer, expect performance they can count on at every level. Ford, after all, has a reputation for being built tough and rugged and offering best-in-class performance across its vehicle lineup.
It can be tricky to find the numbers you want when looking for specs, especially in terms of towing capacity. What exactly does “when properly equipped” mean, for example? What about towing numbers at lower trim levels than the maximum? That’s why we are happy to provide a library of towing capacity articles for vehicles across the Ford lineup.
Ford Towing Capacity
From the F-150, F-250, and F-350 Super Duty pickups to the Explorer, Escape, Expedition, and Edge, people expect their Ford vehicles to be able to haul gear, tow trailers, and pull other cars out of the mud. These vehicles have been the most trusted and reliable trucks in the nation for decades, but just saying that isn’t enough.
You need information about engine lineups—how much can an EcoDiesel tow compared to a Turbo 4, and how do torque and horsepower play into the picture? You could spend hours, even days, scouring the internet for answers to these questions, or you could just check out our library of Ford towing capacity articles below.
Vehicle Tow Ratings at The Lake Dealerships
Tow ratings are arrived at based on a number of factors. The engine power plays in, naturally, but it also depends on the structure of your vehicle, the design of the chassis, the tuning of the suspension, the wheel base, axle ratio, and drivetrain. Your hitch class and design are important, as are the load capacity and rating of your tires.
Our library of reviews, based on individual models, will break down the tow ratings for different trim levels, options packages and configurations. Find your vehicle below, and learn all you need to know about your Ford towing capacity. Then, stop into The Lake Dealerships to check out our inventory, take a test drive, and find the new Ford truck or crossover you’ve been dreaming about driving.
