Diesel F-150 Tow Rating

Autoblog said the diesel F-150 will have the best tow ratings yet for an F-150. The new 2018 Ford F-150 with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo has a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, meaning at the bare minimum, the diesel variant can tow a bit over 13,000 pounds.

Nothing amazing to see here folks, all this does it keep them in line with the competition.

RAM 1500 Eco-Diesel gets 13,750, all Ford is doing is being 1:1 with their rivals. Just wait till Chevy releases their Silverado Diesel.... it too will hit 13k.

Maybe Ford will try to one up their competition and throw out a new number to draw in customers? is everyone is towing around 13k, then why not aim for 14?

I doubt they would and in the end how much they sell of these should remain similar in proportion to what we see of current models. Its just that now truck makers have a powertrain thats more relevant for the current times. RAM proved that.

12,000 lbs is a lot to tow for a half-ton, an impressive number but that also means the diesel F-150 needs some beastly brakes to keep the loaded down pickup in check.

A Gross combined weight rating of 17100 lbs is an indication that the coming F-150 V-6 diesel is updated vs the engine that Dagenham is providing RangeRover with at 242 hp and 440 lb/ft

RAM 1500 with the diesel at the same axle ration 3.55 is just 13750 lbs some 3350 lbs less.............with 240 hp and 420 lb/ft of torque.

I think that the new F-150 diesel is above 250 hp and 450 lb/ft

Impressive numbers. I know that a lot of guys in the trades will love these. Who knows this might mean we see less F250's and 2500's being used as much. Only advantage they have right now is when it comes to the used market.

With those numbers, the new F-150 diesel is going to be the towing champion and most likely hold on to that title for years to come.

Even if it suffers a bit there's still lots it can tow to the point most buyers won't change their buying habits. So in the end things will remain relatively the same.
