It's easy to see that the Ford F-150 is a popular choice among truck drivers, and once you get down to the details you'll understand why. But, not every F-150 is the same, and to know how much you can tow and haul with your new truck is essential.

Does Your Towing Capacity Change Depending on the Engine?

Yes! Depending on the engine you equip your 2018 F-150 with, you'll get a variety of towing and hauling numbers. So, when you're considering which engine to choose for your towing needs, make sure you have your know how much whatever you're planning to tow weighs, so you can find the right one for you. If you're a fishing lover, the base level engine is perfect for small fishing boats along with the trailer. If you're in need of a more heavy-duty towing truck, the more powerful engines are well suited to towing camping trailers. With a 38-foot camping trailer roughly weighing 9,500 pounds, you can easily tow one with your well-equipped F-150. Check out the breakdown below to see how much each 2018 Ford F-150 engine can tow.

Before you tow, make sure you check the Gross Volume Weight Rating of both your truck, and your trailer or camper that you plan on towing. You should never exceed the maximum towing capacity of your truck, or you risk causing harm to not only your vehicles engine, but put yourself at risk too, by exceeding the braking capacity and limits of your brakes.
