F-150 Towing Specs: Importance of Weight

Another important aspect when evaluating the F-150 towing capacity is vehicle weight. The 2019 Ford F-150 features a curb weight of 4,069 to 5,697 pounds depending on what model you choose. This equates to a gross vehicle weight rating of 6,100 to 7,050 pounds. Lighter trucks tend to tow more than the heavier trucks because there is less weight to start with so more power is applied to the load.

F-150 Bed Dimensions
