Compare Ford Towing Specs & Performance Figures

As America’s most popular truck for nearly 50 years, it’s no surprise the Ford F-Series offers exceptional versatility. In fact, as far as light-duty full-size trucks go, the F-150 outclasses them all with a best-in-class towing capacity of 13,500 pounds and a heady 570 pound-feet of torque -- stats that were once the territory of HD trucks for sale in Appleton City.

Just as a new Ford F-150 is now capable of feats that only heavy-duty models could once perform, the F-250 and F-350 -- both part of the Ford Super Duty® lineup -- likewise offer staggering performance. An F-250, for instance, can generate up to 1,200 pound-feet of torque, helping these trucks tow up to 23,000 pounds; the F-350 is capable of 40,000 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped. Impressed? We thought so.

Compare Ford Truck Configurations

We already mentioned how versatile the F-150 is, but you don’t quite realize this until you consider its sheer configurability. Three different bed lengths are available, as well as three different cabs. You can choose between two drivetrains -- 4x2 and 4x4 F-150 trucks are both on offer -- and six engine options. No matter what your dream truck looks like, there’s an F-150 configuration to match it.

The same is true for the new Ford HD trucks presented here. The F-250 also offers a range of engine, cab and bed options, while the F-350 goes one step further by adding dual rear wheels to the options list. An F-350 dually immediately stands out for the additional capability its extra pair of rear wheels offers. You can also buy an F-350 Chassis Cab as well -- perfect for businesses needing a vehicle they can upfit.
