Hauling With F-150 | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

If you’re looking for a truck that does some heavy-duty hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is unsurpassed. The new 2022 Ford F-150 offers best-in-class towing up to 14,000 pounds[1] and best-in-class payload up to 3,325 pounds.[2] But even with all that power, you’ll need to know a few tips for using your truck properly.

Do your research

While those max numbers are certainly impressive, every version of the F-150 offers slightly different capacities based on its engine, cab style, bed size, and so on. Before you hook up a trailer or put something heavy in the truck bed, make sure you check your owner’s manual or doorjamb and see what you can carry.

Use the tools at your disposal

If you’re getting a new 2022 Ford F-150, towing and hauling is easy even if it’s your first time. The new F-150 offers advanced features like Smart Hitch and Smart Trailer Tow Connector, which make hooking up a trailer surprisingly easy. With available Onboard Scales, your F-150 can tell you exactly how much weight is being carried in the bed so that you don’t have to guess how close you are to maxing out on payload.

And there’s even more where that came from. The new F-150 even gives you confidence for maneuvering with a trailer attached thanks to features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and Trailer Sway Control. If you want a truck for hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is tops in more ways than one.
