F150 Conventional Towing Capacity

The 2021 Ford F-150 is known for its dependability and, with the right configuration, can tow up to 14,000 lbs. Alongside best in class towing, and a myriad of tow assist technologies (such as FX4 and Max Trailer Tow packages), this truck truly provides on option for every occasion.

Alongside the conventional alternative, the 2021 F150 is also capable of fifth wheel towing. Unlike conventional tow hitches, a fifth wheel works by locking a king pin in the lock jaw of the hitch. In addition, they require slightly more maintenance to operate than conventional hitches. Proper lubrication of the mechanism is extremely important in attaining optimal performance. This includes all pivot points as well as the slider (if necessary). Using a lube plate though, will eliminate the need for grease and prevent metal to metal contact.

Towing capacity is partly determined by which engine is driving the truck. There are five engine options for the 2021 F-150, and each provides its own unique blend of power, responsiveness, and fuel economy. Because of this, each has its own unique maximum payload, and towing capacity.
