2020 Ranger Towing Capacity and Features


The maximum Ford Ranger towing capacity of 7,500 pounds is due to many design attributes that give it an edge over other trucks in its class. The standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine provides Cumberland drivers with 270 hp with 310 lb-ft of torque. However, the amount you’re able to haul depends on the drivetrain (4×2 or 4×4), the cab size, and the bed size. On top of it all, it still gets an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.

So how does the Ford Ranger accomplish such superb performance? These features help to boost the 2020 Ford Ranger tow rating and performance capabilities:

  • Electronic Power-Assist Steering (EPAS) Electric Motor
  • Electronic Shift-on-the-Fly (ESOF) with Neutral Towing Capability (4×4 only)
  • Trailer towing – 4-pin wiring, ball mounting provisions in the rear bumper
  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Available Hill Descent Control™ within Trail Control™ system
