BEST-IN-CLASS PAYLOAD

Reducing weight is an effective way to increase payload. This is what resulted from cutting the weight of the F-150 body by using lightweight and high-strength, military-grade60  aluminum alloy, and a high-strength steel frame. Greater strength with less weight helps achieve a best-in-class* max 3,270-lb (1483 kgs) payload rating in F-150 models powered by the legendary Ford 5.0L V8. The 5.0L features the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system with two injectors per cylinder – one in the air intake port, another inside the cylinder – to improve power and efficiency. Impressive power ratings are 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft of torque.

Simply rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go. F-150 is the first pickup truck to offer this breakthrough feature.
