Ford F150 Towing Capacity by Year (2015 to 2023) (2)

The Ford F-150 has been the most popular truck in America for a long time, and it’s also great at pulling things. But how strong was it each year? Let’s look at how much weight it could tow from 2015 to 2023.

In 2015, Ford made a big change by using aluminum, which made the F-150 lighter and better for towing.

The smallest engine, a 3.5L V6, could pull 7,600 pounds. The biggest engine, a 5.0L V8, could pull 11,100 pounds. A new engine, the 2.7L EcoBoost V6, could handle 8,500 pounds.

In 2016, not much changed, but Ford made the engines work smoother for towing.

In 2017, the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 got more powerful, and it could tow 12,200 pounds, becoming the best at towing.


In 2018, Ford added a 10-speed automatic transmission, which made towing even better. The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 could still tow 12,200 pounds.

In 2019, Ford introduced the 3.5L PowerBoost Full Hybrid engine, which could tow 12,700 pounds and was good on gas.

In 2020, Ford made a really powerful engine, the High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which could tow 13,200 pounds, making it the best for a short time.

In 2021, there weren’t big changes in towing, but Ford focused on making the truck safer with new technology.

In 2022, Ford added a new engine, the 3.3L Ti-VCT V6, which could tow 8,200 pounds and was cheaper.

In 2023, Ford made the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 even better, so it could tow 14,000 pounds, the most in its class. The High-Output version could still tow 13,200 pounds.

The towing numbers are the maximum in perfect conditions. Before towing, read your manual and think about things like how much weight you’re carrying and the terrain.

Ford has different engines and truck setups, so the towing capacity can change. Look at the official Ford towing guide for exact details.

The Ford F-150, from 2015 to 2023, has a truck for every towing job. It’s no surprise it’s still the best on the road!
