The 2017 Ford F-150’s Incredible Towing Power

For towing power that never feels second-rate, you need to turn to the 2017 Ford F-150. It harnesses up to 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque from a sophisticated V8 engine to overpower the competition and let you tow up to 12,200 pounds. The groundbreaking body delivers lively performance regardless of how much you’re hauling, making this an ideal model whether you need an everyday workhorse or something to take exploring when the weekend rolls around.

2017 Ford F-150 Capability

Towing Capacity

A maximum towing capacity of 12,200 pounds allows you the flexibility to take anything from ATVs to trailers without breaking a sweat.

Payload Capacity

The aluminum-alloy body of the F-150 optimizes its power-to-weight ratio, ensuring a best-in-class maximum payload rating of 3,270 pounds.

Trailer Backup Assist

Worried about connecting to your trailer? Just rotate the Industry-First Trailer Backup Assist knob either left or right to make things easier.

BLIS with Trailer Coverage

Checking your blind-spot can be tough when you’re towing a trailer. Use the Blind Spot Information System to enjoy reassuring coverage.

The Ford F-150 Has Set Towing Standards for the Trucking Segment

The 2017 Ford F-150 is part of an all-new generation of F-150 models — the same generation that was able to reinvent the industry through extensive use of aluminum-alloy. This is a military-grade material, so there’s no need to fear that durability has been compromised. At the same time, the material’s lightness has resulted in a drop of up to 700 pounds from the vehicle’s body. In short, the power of the Ford F-150’s engines goes towards moving your cargo, not towards moving itself.

And the Trailer Backup Assist feature and BLIS monitor with trailer coverage are far from the only towing features available to make your life easier. With Smart Trailer Tow Connector, trailer brake controller (TBC), and Class IV trailer hitch receiver, you can expect to tow heavy across Rice Lake, Cumberland, Hayward, and beyond. Unstoppable capability is what has defined the Ford F-150 for years, and the 2017 model has taken that reputation to bold new heights.
