2019 Ford Super Duty hauling and towing capacity: everything you need to know
Sure, the Ford Super Duty offers class-leading towing and payload – but what does that mean in the real world? What makes the truck more capable than any other vehicle in its segment? Glad you asked.
What is the towing capacity of the 2019 Ford Super Duty?
There isn’t much the 2019 Ford Super Duty can’t handle. The truck offers a conventional towing capacity of 21,000 lbs.*; maximum 5th-wheel towing is 27,500 lbs., while the gooseneck tow rating is 35,000 lbs.**
What is the payload capacity of the 2019 Ford Super Duty?
The 2019 Ford F-250 can haul, too, with a best-in-class payload of 7,640 lbs.*** Also, the truck offers best-in-class maximum payload plus conventional and gooseneck towing. Together, the ratings provide a gross combination weight (GCWR) of 43,300 lbs.*
How does the Super Duty achieve its best-in-class ratings?
Several features – such as powerful engines, a bullet-proof undercarriage and the latest technology – provide the Super Duty with the brawn to achieve its impressive ratings.
- Heavy-duty powertrain options: Two robust engine options are available in the 2019 Super duty. The first is the 6.2L gasoline-powered V8 (385 hp, 430 lb.-ft.) with best-in-class torque, along with an optional Live-Driver Power Take off (PTO) provision).
Next, there’s the bullet-proof 6.7L Power Stroke turbodiesel (450 hp, 935 lb.-ft.). The engine offers best-in-class output along with fuel-saving features like a light, graphite iron block.
Both gas and diesel engine options mate to a heavy-duty 6-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive comes standard; four-wheel drive if offered for increased capability.
- Robust body, frame and undercarriage: A collection of heavy-duty underpinnings lie beneath the Super Duty’s military-grade aluminum body. Unlike other trucks in its class, the full-size Ford has front and rear solid axles to maximize strength and weight-bearing capabilities. Both axles hang from a heavy-duty suspension and everything mounts to a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame.
- Breakthrough technology: The 2019 Ford Super Duty has technology that increases capability and makes towing easier than ever before. For example, there’s an available trailer reverse guidance system with cameras in the side view mirrors and visual guides in the dash screen. The system provides a clear trailer view for easy hookups every time.
Further ability comes from class-exclusive adaptive steering that adjusts the steering ratio in response to vehicle speed. Plus, there’s class-exclusive trailer tire pressure monitoring so you can skip getting out of the cab to check whether your trailer tires are properly inflated.
