Ford Super Duty Towing Capacity

Modern trucks are more capable, accommodating, and packed with features than ever before. With their plush and spacious interiors, advanced technologies, and top-quality cabin materials, you'd be forgiven for mistaking the inside of a crew cab for a luxury sport utility vehicle. Furthermore, trucks offer all the latest entertainment and driver-assistance technologies, like adaptive cruise control and premium sound systems. Not to mention the numerous productivity features, like blind-spot monitoring with trailer coverage and Ford's exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist.

Still, even with all these extras, towing capacity is one of the most common metrics when evaluating a pickup's serviceability. Towing ability has wide-ranging implications, from professional to recreational. On the job site, pickups tow heavy equipment, generators, supplies, and rubble. At home, you might hook up a camper for a road trip or a boat for a trip to the lake.

While light-duty models are stronger than ever, when it comes to the most taxing jobs, Ford Super Duty reigns supreme. Here, you can find a quick rundown of the towing capacities of various configurations of Ford Super Duty pickups, Super Duty Chassis Cabs, and medium-duty commercial trucks.

NOTE: This is intended as high-level information to help guide research, providing the max possible tow rating (in pounds) of the various cab and engine size combinations. Many factors contribute to a truck's individual towing capacity. So, before hooking up a trailer, you should refer to the unique towing specifications found on the frame sticker inside the driver-side door.
