If you're in the market for used truck, impressive towing capacity is probably one of your top concerns. Jacksonville drivers with boats and trailers to haul know a used Ford F-250 is consistently one of the most capable trucks for towing on the market. At Nations Trucks, we're constantly striving to make it easy for Orlando locals to find the right used truck specifications for their needs, preferences, and lifestyles.

Factors Affecting the Towing Capacity of the Ford F-250

Throughout the years, the towing capacity of the Ford F-250 has varied significantly. Depending on the truck's age, its maximum towing capacity can range anywhere from just 6,800 pounds to an impressive 22,800 pounds. In addition to age, whether a Ford F-250 has an automatic or manual transmission will certainly make a difference. Automatic transmissions make it easier for vehicles to haul heavy loads without sustaining clutch damage. As you shop your options in used Ford F-250's in Sanford, you'll also want to pay close attention to the type of engines mounted in these vehicles and what the tow ratings are for both conventional and 5th wheel specs.

Maximum Towing Capacity for the Ford F-250 Throughout the Years

For hardworking Tampa drivers with a lot to haul, it's best to look for late-model F-250's for the job. 2019 models have a towing capacity range between 12,200 pounds and 18,500 pounds. For this year, the conventional specs closely match 5th wheel specs. Models from 2017 and 2018 matched these numbers exactly. However, there's a substantial difference between conventional and 5th wheel specs for these vehicles. As such, Daytona Beach shoppers should take note of engine types when considering models from these years. Models from 2016 can have either a 6.2-L engine or a 6.7-L engine. Options with the 6.7-L diesel engine far outperform those with gasoline engines. In 2016 models, maximum towing capabilities for the Ford F-250 range between 11,800 and 16,800 pounds.
