2019 Ford F-250 Towing
Normal drivers who choose a new Ford F-250 will enjoy a maximum towing capacity of 12,300 to 15,000 pounds. If you’re looking to tow more than 15,000 pounds, a gooseneck trailer or fifth wheel hitch will be required. In addition to impressive towing, the 2019 Ford F-250 boasts a payload capacity over 4,250 pounds.

You can see why this member of the Ford Super Duty lineup is considered to be one of the top performers in its class! Explore more details on the F-250 towing capacity and engine specs with Sam Leman Ford below.

Ford F-250 Specs: Engine Options

You can choose between rear- or four-wheel drive for your F-250, and your engine options are as follows:

  • 6.2L Gas-Powered V8: Delivers 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque
  • Optional 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V8: The diesel option produces Best-in-Class* 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque

Whichever engine you opt for, you’re going to get a Ford TorqShift® G 6-speed automatic transmission, making for smooth shifting when navigating Decatur roads.

Ford F-250 Towing Features

We think the two robust engines available on the F-250 are a selling point on their own, but we’d be remiss not to tell you about some of the class-leading features you’ll get as well:

  • Available Adaptive Steering: When you’re traveling at low speeds, Adaptive Steering adjusts the steering ratio so you can turn the wheel with ease. If you’re traveling at higher speeds, Adaptive Steering will firm up the wheel.
  • Available Trailer Reverse Guidance: Side-view mirror cameras paired with on-screen guidelines will help you hitch your trailer with ease.
  • Available Diesel Engine-Exhaust Braking: When paired with the Power Stroke® engine, this feature works to restrict the exhaust flow of the turbocharger, which creates back pressure that helps to slow the vehicle.
