Ford is known for built-tough, American-made trucks. Ford is a name that workers in Lexington, and all across the nation, have depended on for over 100 years. The F-series has run over 60 years strong, so it comes as no surprise the best selling F-150 is the truck workers rely on most to get the job done. Best-in-class towing capability, payload capacity, and cargo box volume; the 2013 Ford F-150 is the preferred choice when hauling the heaviest loads.
So, what exactly is the towing capability of the 2013 F-150? Towing capability is defined by the gross combined weight rating (GCWR), which is the maximum allowable weight of the F-150, trailer, and cargo (with passengers) combined. Each member of the F-150 family has a slightly varied ability that depends on the configuration of the specific truck. Each transmission, cab design, drive system (4×2 or 4×4), and engine/axle ratio combinations determine the specific trailer weight that can be towed.
Know your F-150’s specifications to ensure safe towing. For example, did you know towing with a trailer that weighs over 5,000 pounds requires your F-150 to be equipped with a towing package? There are many factors that play in to safely towing a load, and when miscalculated; the driver, passengers, trailer, load, and F-150 are at risk of injury.
