Ford 2021 towing guide

You can get the highest tow ratings with max payload package.

All of the F150 engines have received significant bumps in tow ratings.
The 2.7 is now up to 10,000lbs, the diesel is up to 12,100lbs and the 5.0 is up to 13,000lbs.

Maximum GCRW is 19,500lbs. If I recall correctly the maximum GCWR for a 1991 F350 was 18,500lbs. Things have really changed.

Yep, waiting on my 2021 F250 7.3 to arrive " DEC "......very impressive numbers from a gas engine.
Ford likes staying a step ahead.

Very interesting increases in tow capacity.

"...helping F-150 tow best-in-class maximum available 14,000 lbs.
and deliver a best-in-class available payload rating of 3,325 lbs."

So now the F150 is max tow rated exactly the same as the best equipped F250 gasser (with 4.30s and no wd).
This is going to blow the minds of the uninformed and melt the internet weight police's keyboards at the same time!

Interesting.
TBC now is included with both the 52A & 53C.
Reference is made of the 5.0 with Max Tow.
17T a new tow option. Chart says includes Smart tow connector BUT no wiring harness?
5.0 chart jumps from 3.31 to 3.73, no 3.55 listed?

I had a 2004 ford SUV, with 3 rows of leather and an CGRW of 20,000 lb, 19,500 doesn't sound like much for a pickup.

Boy love how the the only talk about Payload and GVWR on the page about slide in Campers. The tout the BIG max tow ratings without reference to GVWR or payload!
No wonder we see so many 20K+ 5er TH hooked to F250’s.
Ford should be taken to task for misleading advertising, likely Ram and GM also.

Both the F53 and E-Series Class C chassis still show only the 6 speed transmission.

Not disagreeing with you but at least Ford made the max payload package much more available this year, even included with the max tow option in some cases. That would increase the payload of my 2016 F150 by 800lbs. That would go a long ways towards making the ratings on my truck more acceptable.

A 20K 5th wheel probably has an F250 overloaded too.

So your comparing your Excursion (Superduty, HD chassis) to a new half ton and what was your point again? Just stirring the pot?
