What is 2020 ford f 150 towing capacity?

Seeking a work truck capable of towing 5000lbs, I’ve considered V8 options in XL and XLT trims, but they’re scarce. Instead, I’ve found some STX package trucks with a 2.7T engine, trailer brake controller, and Class IV receiver hitch. However, conflicting information from Ford’s towing guide and brochure raises concerns about actual towing capacity. While the guide suggests 7600lbs, the brochure indicates 6000lbs for the 2.7T engine with the Class IV hitch. I’m unsure how to determine exact towing capacity from the VIN, but I need assurance as my trailer’s weight may increase. Any insights are appreciated.

Conflicting info on towing capacity can be frustrating. Your best bet for accuracy is reaching out to Ford or a dealership directly with your truck’s VIN. They can provide precise details to ensure your trailer needs are met, giving you peace of mind for your work needs.

It’s understandable to be concerned about conflicting towing capacity information.

Finding the most accurate spec can be tricky.

The 2020 Ford F-150 has a towing capacity that ranges from 5,000 to 13,200 pounds (2,268 – 5,987 kg).

  2. 2.7L EcoBoost V6: Can tow up to 9,000 lbs.
