What is the towing capacity of my Ford vehicle?

A good rule of thumb in the towing* world is this: Know before you tow. That means finding out your Ford vehicle's exact towing capacity before you attempt to move a payload. The towing capacity for your particular vehicle is based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The equipment package(s) included with your vehicle
  • The weight and structure of the payload you want to tow
  • The number of passengers with you at time of tow

To find information for your vehicle, simply reference the RV & Trailer Towing Guide for your vehicle's model year:

  1. Go to fleet.ford.com
  2. Select Parts & Service
  3. Choose Towing Guides under Resources
  4. Choose the RV & Trailer Towing Guide year for your vehicle

Information on the following is contained in the RV & Trailer Towing Guide:

  • Trailer Towing Selector (trailer weight by vehicle and powertrain)
  • Trailer Towing Equipment (information on required items for certain weights)
  • Maximum Trailer Weight and Towing Equipment Packages
  • Know Before You Tow (important information about towing including payload calculations)
