While towing and payload might be the biggest consideration for someone looking at a super-duty pickup, the 2020 Ford F-150 can still get a lot of work done. If you are interested in the F-150, then you no doubt want to be sure it can handle whatever you plan on throwing at it. The F-150 offers fantastic towing and payload capacities, but specific numbers depend on which trim you look at and the overall configuration of the truck.
For example, the 2020 Ford F-150 XL, with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, a SuperCrew cab, and the 6-foot box, with the Max Trailer Tow Package, offers a maximum towing of up to 13,200 lbs. The same trim and engine, but with the SuperCab, however, has a maximum towing of up to 11,900 lbs. Other engines and configurations can bring that down to as low as 5,000 lbs of maximum towing, but that amount is the lowest it can go. That is why it is so important to look at different options and configurations before you make a final decision.
The maximum payload of the 2020 Ford F-150 is affected in much the same way by different trims and options. For example, the XL trim, with the available 5.0L V8 engine and a regular cab can have a maximum payload of up to 3,270 lbs. By comparison, the same trim and engine but with a SuperCrew cab has a maximum payload of up to 2,890 lbs. That is not a huge difference, but if the payload is your primary concern, then it is certainly something to keep in mind when shopping for your truck.
