Top-rated payload and towing capability

Lots of ways to maximize top-rated F-150 capability.

Ford F-150 delivers best-in-class payload and tow ratings*. And the F-150 can be equipped to smooth out the toughest of workdays and make every job as productive as possible. Choose from the many features available on no other half-ton pickup*— among them the innovative available Pro Trailer Backup Assist 9 , integrated tailgate step and remote tailgate release, as well as deployable box side steps.

Tow more than any other half-ton pickup

Haul more than any other half-ton pickup

Best-in-Class Payload

Reducing weight is an effective way to increase payload. And that’s what resulted from cutting the weight of the F-150 body with high-strength, military-grade60 , aluminum alloy. Greater strength with less weight helps achieve a best-in-class* max 13,200-lb. payload rating in F-150s powered by the legendary Ford 5.0L V8. The 5.0L features new direct-injection system designed to extract as much power as possible from every drop of fuel, and generates power ratings of 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

Back up a trailer like a pro, even if you’re a novice

Class-Exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist 9

Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time – the truck going one way and the trailer going in the opposite direction. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro at this often-tricky manoeuvre, the available class-exclusive* Pro Trailer Backup Assist™9  makes it as easy as turning a knob. 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.
