The video above shows a payload of 1,324lbs... and it's a Limited, so that's pretty much in line with Limiteds of the past:
169321

169322


I'm really liking that lay-flat seat. Imagine the... sleep... you could get in that thing. (y)

As a technician in the field, hybrids are not worth the hype they bring, beit better mpg or more torque . The reduced towing capacity/payload and an entirely additional powertrain system, for what, 30hp and a chunk of torque that youll never see? The 10 speed transmission with it's Nearly 5:1 1st gear took care of any takeoff concern with these trucks. Just buy a 2021 ecoboost and enjoy an already amazing vehicle.

Speaking of refinement, have any of you towing campers forgot the trucks that we had in the 80s and 90s to tow with? The half tons we have now tow, steer, and stop circles around those 1 ton trucks of yesterday. I think we've Already got it good, no need to overcomplicate an already expensive platform with more unnecessary tech.

Yeah I think you will be better than 1100 lbs. They bumped the GVWR. A normal 3.5 screw 4x4 is a 7050 lb GVWR. The powerboost is 7350. So even though its 500 lbs heavier you get back 300 lbs of that.

I am still guessing somewhere in the 1300-1400 lb range for a Plati.

The current gen Limiteds carry 6750 gvwr ratings like the raptor. I believe they even use the raptor rear leaves to emphasize ride comfort well over payload performance.

It was Ford鈥檚 strategy to attract cushy-truck buyers who liked the rides of Ram鈥檚 and Denali鈥檚 with MagneRide suspensions.

I鈥檇 assume they鈥檒l continue that strategy for 21, so expect little payload on Limited models, but Platinum on down should be respectable, with or without a battery pack on board.

I鈥檓 interested in the Powerboost because of the 7.5 kWh onboard generator. The extra horses and torque might be nice but my 2016 3.5 Ecoboost has plenty of power for me. My 2016 Lariat has 1630 payload and I need all of that. So if the Powerboost comes in lower that will be a deal breaker. Anxious to start checking out payloads when they start arriving on dealer lots. I am happy with my Lariat trim and have no need for the Limited or Platinum.

I remember seeing an F150 back around 2012 or so when I first started looking at a new F150 to replace my old 97 F150 at the time... I saw a fully loaded King Ranch or whatever at that time and it had a whopping #850 payload... I'm not shitting you... I wish I had the sense to take a pic of it, but that's all it had, I swear...

I found my Max Tow on the lot back in January of 2014 and it showed #1920 payload... I jumped on it in a heart beat even though it was a late build 2013...

I have it to this day and it's now got 94,000 miles on it and I've towed with it a lot and I just can't see getting anything "new"... I wonder what the sticker price is on that rig in the vid?? Probably over $60k at least...

Anyway, I'll drive my 13 to the ground.. I expect at least another 10 years of service out of it, just like my old 97...
