What is the towing capacity of my Ford?

Factors That Impact Towing Capacity

A good rule of thumb in the towing world is this: know before you tow. That means finding out your Ford vehicle’s exact towing capacity before you attempt to move a payload. The towing capacity for your particular vehicle is based on several factors, including:

  • The equipment package(s) included with your vehicle
  • The weight and structure of the payload you want to tow
  • The number of passengers with you at the time of the tow

How to Determine Your Towing Capacity

To find information about your vehicle’s towing capacity, you can:

  • Reference How do I use the Ford Online Towing Calculator and Ford Online Towing Calculator Frequently Asked Questions.
  • Reference the RV & Trailer Towing Guide for your vehicle’s model year. The RV & Towing Guide includes the following information:
    • Trailer Towing Selector (trailer weight by vehicle and powertrain)
    • Trailer Towing Equipment (information on required items for certain weights)
    • Maximum Trailer Weight and Towing Equipment Packages
    • Know Before You Tow (important information about towing including payload calculations)
