2022 Ford F-350 Towing Capacity
So, you’re interested in the new 2022 Ford F-350—we don’t blame you because this truck is truly a beast. However, is it up to par with your construction needs in Hamilton, Madison, or Morrisville, NY?
Our team at Friendly Ford of Hamilton has put together this review all about the 2022 Ford F-350 towing capacity. We’ll dive deep into its maximum towing and payload capabilities, its three available powertrains, and its standard and available essentials for towing. Let’s get started.
How Much Can the 2022 Ford F-350 Tow?
When it comes to towing, the 2022 Ford F-350 does not mess around. When properly equipped, this Super Duty truck is capable of these towing figures:
- 21,200-pound maximum conventional towing capacity
- 35,750-pound maximum 5th wheel/gooseneck towing capacity
- 7,850-pound payload capacity
Whether you’re using this truck for work or for play, you’ll be able to carry some rather heavy loads. For instance, if you’re sporting this truck around the construction site, you’ll easily carry bricks, large paint canisters, wood slabs, or boxes of backsplash in the cargo box.
However, if you’re ready to get your vacay started, the F-350 is more than capable of towing the largest camping trailer to your favorite campground or a large boat to the lake you’ve gone to since you were a kid.
What Gets the Ford F-350 Moving?
With so much pulling power, you’re probably wondering what kind of juice the 2022 Ford F-350 has under the hood. Well, its base model equips a 6.2L V8 engine, which cranks out 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.
Although the base engine offers plenty of muscle for drivers like you to flex, you can up the ante by having either of these available engines installed:
- 7.3L V8 engine: 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
- 6.7L PowerStroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine: 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque
Moving heavy construction toys requires a mighty truck. With that being said, if you need a Super Duty truck turned toy hauler, we think opting for the PowerStroke® engine will help you achieve this truck’s top towing capabilities.
Towing is serious business, and it should not be taken lightly. In fact, the 2022 Ford F-350 knows that as well because it equips Trailer Sway Control on all models. This intelligent feature helps your truck and your cargo counteract any swaying while on the road.
Towing is one thing, but backing up your cargo into place is another. Fortunately, you can add on the available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ to help get the job done. This feature gives you a crisp view of your truck while in reverse, and it can control your steering simply by using the integrated knob!
What’s towing without the proper equipment? Fortunately, the F-350 is ready to be outfitted with your desired hitch! While a Trailer Hitch Receiver (located below the tailgate) comes standard on all models, you can opt for the Gooseneck Hitch Kit. This installs a gooseneck hitch into your truck’s bed—you’ll be 5th-wheel-towing ready!
