One of the main reasons to choose a truck is the supreme towing power it provides. If you're looking for a pickup to tackle jobs around Hamilton, Madison, and Morrisville, NY, then the 2020 Ford F-150 is a desirable option with a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds.

Our team at Friendly Ford Hamilton will take you through all the F-150 has to offer in terms of towing, so you can feel confident you're choosing the capabilities and technologies your lifestyle calls for.

A Range of Towing Options

Every job calls for something different. If you only need to take a water ski boat to the lake on the weekends, you won't need as much muscle as it takes to tackle heavy worksite equipment. Therefore, the 2020 Ford F-150 offers six engine options, each one generating its own unique towing capabilities:

What Can the Ford F-150 Tow?

The answer to which powertrain you should equip your F-150 with lies in your specific towing needs. If you're looking to take a 25-foot camper on thrilling family getaways or bring a 2-horse trailer to an out-of-town show, then the baseline 3.3-liter motor can get the job done.

If you want more pulling power for some of the largest campers and recreational boats on the market, along with a range of bulky tools and equipment, arm your 2020 Ford F-150 with the available 3.5-liter engine. 

Tow with Ease and Confidence

With enough brawn to bring a race-car-hauling box trailer to your next meet, you'll be happy for a bevy of towing technologies in the 2020 Ford F-150. Coming standard is trailer sway control that detects sway and applies the proper amount of control and power at your trailer's wheels, so your truck can stay grounded on winding roads.

For even greater ease when towing, the F-150 offers the following systems as well:

  1. Pro Trailer Backup Assist™: Allows you to control the direction of your trailer when in Reverse with the simple turn of a dial, making loading your boat into the water or backing into a campsite easier.
  2. Dynamic hitch assist with line-of-sight guide: Provides you with guidelines to help direct the hitch to the trailer receiver, so you can be on your way quickly.
  3. Factory-installed trailer brake controller: Synchronizes your truck and trailer brakes for more supported stopping power.
  4. BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage: Detects vehicles in your side blind zones, automatically accounting for the length of your trailer, so you'll know when it's safe to change lanes.
