All-New F-150 Can Tow a Ram, a Silverado & Haul Two Hondas
The 2015 F-150 can tow 12,200 pounds and haul 3,300 pounds. Think about that for a minute. That means the all-new pickup can easily tow a Dodge Ram 1500 4×4 (5,445 lb,) a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Turbo Diesel (6,576 lb,) haul a Honda Civic (2,617 lb) and still have enough room to squeeze a Honda CB 1100 (540 lb) motorcycle in the bed. Incredible.
“Once again, Ford F-150 establishes new standards in durability, capability, technology and efficiency,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford Press Honcho. “We keep raising the bar on America’s favorite truck to help F-150 owners be more productive 24/7 – whether for work or weekend fun.”
Fun indeed. The new aluminum F-150 is 700 pounds lighter and can tow up to 1,100 more pounds and haul up to 530 more pounds than last year’s model. Ford easily wins this year’s towing and hauling wars with these incredible payload numbers.
According to Ford, the F-150 fuel economy ratings are expected to be in the range of at least 5 percent and as much as 20 percent better gas mileage than today’s truck, depending on the model.
The exact gas mileage numbers for the entire lineup will be announced in November.
