A 2014 F150 with a 3.5L EcoBoost Engine

Hi everyone,

I need assistance figuring out how much my 2014 F150 3.5L Ecoboost can haul. Despite my investigation, I am unable to determine the precise capacity. My truck has an axle code L9 (3.55), 145" wheelbase, 18" wheels, a Ford hitch (sticker says weight distribution of 10,500 lbs), “Tow Mod” on the window sticker, and trailer sway control. I am not sure if it has the max tow package, which is essential for figuring out towing capacity, but it does have an electronic brake controller.

I purchased a travel trailer so I could live there while I was on the road for work. I want to tow it 500+ miles a year, generally on level ground. With 1000 pounds set out for gear and luggage, my goal trailer weight is between 7000 and 9000 pounds. I need more confirmation, however my research indicates a towing capacity of between 7000 and 11,300 lbs. I would be very grateful for any assistance.

Make sure your 2014 F150 can tow:

Examine the handbook

See the chart for the L9 axle code, 145" wheelbase, and hitch information. This will display the precise capacity.

Level terrain with trailer weight (7000–9,000 lbs) indicates you should be good. For confirmation, consult the handbook twice.

Tip

To find the remaining trailer weight allowance, weigh your truck (with you and your belongings) and deduct it from the tow capacity.

Let’s take a closer look at your 2014 Ford F150 3.5L Ecoboost to find out its towing capacity.

With the 3.5L Ecoboost V6 engine and automatic transmission, the 2014 F150 can tow between 6,000 and 11,300 pounds if it has the Trailer Tow Package or the Max Trailer Tow Package. Since your trailer weight range is 7,000 to 9,000 pounds, your truck should be capable of towing it.

Here are some important details about your truck’s engine:

  • Engine: 3.5L Ecoboost V6
  • Power: 365 hp @ 5,000 rpm
  • Torque: 420 lb-ft @ 2,500 rpm
  • Maximum Payload Capacity: 3,100 lbs

Planning to tow your travel trailer on flat roads for about 500 miles a year? Your F150 should manage this easily. Just make sure you have the right towing package and a suitable weight distribution hitch for safety.
