Don't forget that Ford does not rate this truck nor any of there trucks to tow a specific amount. IE in this case it is not a will tow 7500lbs, but instead a WILL TOW UP TO rating. If you have a heavier truck (supercab, 4 door, 4wd, etc) or more people / cargo, then you can pull that much less in trailer weight.

Everytime you see a ad touting that this or that truck will tow a specific amount, it is always noted - "as properly equipped with" AND "is noted as a will tow up to"... and if you research a little farther, in normal instances it is a two wheel drive, regular or smallest (lightest) cab available, NO cargo and only the driver that the maufacture uses to show that it has the highest rated tow rating.
