What is the towing capacity of my Ford?

Towing capacity will vary based on a variety of factors. You can determine your vehicle's towing capacity by referencing your model's RV & Trailer Towing Guide or using the Online Towing Calculator

Factors That Impact Towing Capacity

  • The weight and structure of the payload you want to tow
  • The number of passengers with you at the time of the tow
