The 2020 Ford F-150 owner’s manual is published, and it gives us a look at the weight ratings on the latest truck. The pickup truck market is more competitive than ever. Chevrolet recently increased the 2020 Silverado 1500 maximum towing rating to 13,400 lbs. F-150’s current maximum rating is 13,200 lbs. Will Ford respond with another F-150 tow rating upgrade?

The 2020 model year F-150 owner’s manual is published, and it lists weight ratings across the F-150 lineup of cabs, engines, and rear axle ratios. The maximum Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) is still 18,400 lbs, same as the current 2019 F-150 trucks.

This translates to maximum towing rating of 13,200 lbs for a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 powered crew cab truck with a maximum towing package and a 3.55 rear axle ratio.
