Are you someone who is searching for a truck that can help you with all of your towing needs? We know how important the right towing capacity can be for your life, whether you need it for your business, or for the fun weekend activities that have become a necessity in your life. Today we are focused on bringing you all of the latest information on what a Ford truck can offer you in terms of towing. Everyone already knows that Ford trucks are just built differently, and we’re here to prove that when it comes to giving you the power you need, there is no better option than a Ford. That’s why we’ll be going through the entire Ford lineup to discuss more in-depth the kind of towing capacity that you will be getting should you choose one. Stop by Columbine Ford today for any further questions that you might have.


The first vehicle we are starting with is the newest addition to the Ford lineup of trucks. The Ford Maverick comes into this with a lot to prove, especially with two different engines you will be able to choose from. A hybrid powertrain comes as standard, and it’s a 2.5-liter Atkinson inline-4 that is paired with a 94-kW battery pack for 191 total system horsepower. The other engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4, outputting around 277 pound-feet of torque and 250 horsepower. Both FWD and AWD are available, which is perfect to make sure you can handle all of the weather conditions that should come your way while towing. Speaking of towing: you will be able to get up to 4,000 pounds of towing capacity with the Maverick thanks to this engine lineup! Make sure you opt for the 4K Tow package, and you’ll find things like a reinforced hitch and 7-pin wiring.


Ford continues to work overtime with their trucks, and in the case of the midsize Ranger, you won’t find another example of such excellence in the segment. Especially thanks to the standard turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-4 engine, which can output 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. You can find both rear- and four-wheel drive with this model, along with a ten-speed automatic transmission. The towing numbers jump to 7,5000 pounds of capacity, which means your weekend plans just got that much more exciting.

F-150 Lightning

Yes, even with the electric motors that you gain with the F-150 Lightning, towing is still going to impress you. There are two configurations here, the first being the standard-range battery, which is two 3-phase fixed-magnet AC electric motors that can get you 426 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. The second is the extended-range battery, which switches things up to 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque. When you opt for the second engine, and add in the Max Trailer Tow package, the towing number gets up to 10,000 pounds! That is a huge number, and something you should never take for granted.


Towing numbers start to jump exponentially once you hit the F-150, and all it can provide you with the engine lineup. True power has most definitely been found with this full-size truck. Among the five different engine options, the base one is a 3.3-liter V6. Here you’ll be able to get around 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Another excellent display of power is found with the final engine that’s available, a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 Hybrid, which bumps the numbers up to 570 pound-feet of torque and 430 horsepower. Two- and four-wheel drive are available. As for towing, how does 14,000 pounds of towing capacity sound? We’re pretty pleased with that number, and anyone with a job to do will, too.

Super Duty

The final piece to the puzzle here today is a closer look at what a Ford Super Duty truck can do for you in terms of towing. We’ll just come out and say it from the top. The Super Duty can tow as much as 24,200 pounds when you get the right engine and configuration. That number is real, and it’s perfect for anyone who is trying to get the tough jobs done. Among the three different engines you can choose from, we think the turbocharged diesel 6.7-liter V8 is worth the added mention, especially with the 1,050 pound-feet of torque.
