Welcome to F150Ecoboost.net , the premier Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum dedicated to all Ford F150 Ecoboost owners and enthusiasts.

While researching F150 Ecoboost trucks on the Internet I noticed there wasn't one solid source of information for these new Ford Trucks. Sure, there are plenty of great F150 Forums that covered every make and model, but when it came to the new twin turbo F150 there wasn't a "goto place" for the information I was looking for. A few months later I purchased my first Ford Truck, a 2012 Ford F150 FX4 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost motor and F150Ecoboost.net was born! We aim to be a friendly, educational community dedicated to everything about the 2011-2013 F150 Ecoboost line of Ford Trucks.

2015 Ford F150 Officially Crushes Ram and Silverado in Towing and Hauling

Ford Motor Company still hasn’t rolled out all of the information on the 2015 Ford F150, but they announced the towing and payload numbers for the next generation pickup and – as I expected – the new lightweight Ford F150 is the most capable F150 ever with towing and payload figures that make it by far the best in the half ton truck class. Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews.com.

The 2015 Ford F150 has groundbreaking levels of aluminum in the body and because of that, the next generation F150 will be the significantly lighter than the outgoing models. This will help to make the 2015 F150 one of the most efficient half ton trucks sold in America, but a few months back I speculated that this lightweight design would have a big impact on the towing and payload capabilities. After all, cutting weight from the body means that the chassis, suspension, brakes and drivetrain are able to tow or haul that much more weight.

It turns out that I was right, the 2015 Ford F150 is vastly more capable; with numbers that make it much better than the outgoing 2015 F150 and more importantly – much better than any other new half ton truck sold in America. Also, the maximum payload numbers for the 2015 F150 put it way above the competition from General Motors and Chrysler’s Ram brand. Most importantly, these numbers from Ford are certified under the new SAE towing standards so the other automakers can no longer point out the fact that their towing numbers are SAE approved while Ford’s are not. Everyone is on a level playing field – and the 2015 F150 beats the competitors very soundly.

2015 F150 Offers Best in Class Towing
The 2015 Ford F150 is available with four engines – the new entry level 3.5L V6, the new 2.7L EcoBoost V6, the returning 5.0L V8 and the returning 3.5L EcoBoost V6. If you want the most towing capacity possible from your 2015 F150, you will need to once again opt for the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. When equipped with the Max Tow package, the twin turbocharged 2015 F150 will allow you to tow a whopping 12,200 pounds.

Aside from the 2015 Ford F150, the most capable truck in terms of towing levels is the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 6.2L V8 and rear wheel drive. That truck is able to pull 11,800 pounds according to the Chevrolet website. The strongest towing Ram 1500 packs the 5.7L Hemi and a max... [Read More]

2015 F-150 Towing and Payload Capacity Announced!

The 2015 Ford F-150's maximum towing capacity has been announced at a massive 12,200 pounds, while payload (what it can hold in the bed) is an even more staggering 3,300 pounds. It's a hell of an evolution for the "half-ton" truck segment, which used to stand for a 1,000-lb payload rating.

The new F-150's maximums will undoubtedly be achieved with the V8 and probably 2WD for the tow rating. I'm still having trouble imagining a truck carrying 3,300 pounds in the bed, but believe it or not the 2014 F-150, in regular cab 2WD trim with the 3.5 EcoBoost, is already up to 3,100 pounds payload. The V8 gets an extra 20 pounds on top of that. Both require a "heavy duty payload package."

A 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 6.2 V8 and "Max Trailering Package" is close behind with a 12,000 pound tow rating. The Chevy's payload rating is about 1,700 pounds in that configuration, maxing at 1,820 with a 5.3 V8 in 4WD.

A 2015 Ram 1500 with a 5.7 HEMI tops out at 9,250 pounds towing or 1,635 pounds payload.

Ford is keeping quite on fuel economy improvements, cryptically saying the 2015 truck will get "at least 5 percent and as much as 20 percent higher gas mileage than today's truck, depending on the model." There are too many configurations to make an accurate guess.
