2017 Ford F-150 towing and payload capacities

When you’re in the market for a new pickup truck, you want one that offers all of the best in power and capability. The whole point of trucks is to get a hard day’s worth of work out of them, and in order to do so, they have to offer some pretty impressive towing and payload capabilities. That’s where the 2017 Ford F-150 comes in.

The impressive power created by the 2017 Ford F-150 is matched by none of its segment competitors on the road today. It comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine on its Raptor trim that’s able to produce 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Its base trim is a 2.7-liter V6, which offers 282 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. It also offers a 5.0-liter V8 engine option with incredible power to make it a born tower and hauling machine.

Of course, the exact amount you’re able to tow depends on which of these engine configurations you choose. Depending on which one you opt for, your Ford F-150 will be capable of towing between 5,100 lbs and 11,300 lbs.

Max Payload Capacity

Much like its different engine options, the 2017 F-150 also comes with a variety of different bed sizes. This affects now only how much you’re able to fit in the bed of your truck, but your payload capacity as well. Depending on which bed length you choose, the F-150 has a maximum payload capacity of between 1,641 lbs and 2,320 lbs.

    I have a 2017 F-150 SuperCrew with the 5.0 V8 and 6 1/2 foot bed. Can you tell me how much towing capacity I have? What is my payload capacity? I’m considering getting a 1/2 ton towable 5th Wheel but I’m getting conflicting information. My drivers side door tags say the GVWR is 7050 lbs and Payload is a maximum of 1975 lbs with cargo and passenger load. I can’t find my GCVW rating. Anyway, would I be safe towing a combined cargo and trailer 10,000 lb 5th Wheel?

    I have a 2016 4×4 F-150 with your configuration (3.55 rear end & HD tow). I tow a 6,000 lb. travel trailer (5,000 lb. without added gear), with me wife (combined ~315 lb.) & 50 lb. dog in cab, with not much else–maybe another 100 lbs. I think 10,000 lb. is way too much, and your combined GVWR will be about 2,000 lbs too much! Max trailer should likely not exceed ~7,000 lbs. With 6,000 lb. tag-along, the truck does pretty well.

    The newer EcoBoost (2018-19) with 3.73 gears can maybe do a 10,000 lb 5th wheel trailer, but I doubt it would be safe. IMO, you need a 3/4 or 1 ton truck to safely pull any 10,000 lb. trailer.
