When properly equipped the Ford F150 towing capability is best-in-class for a full-size pickup under 8,500 pounds. The Ford F150 has standard sway control (TSC) and available factory integrated trailer brake controller (TBC). The Ford F150 also has a tow/haul mode on the standard 6 speed automatic transmission. This compensates for altitude, grade and load to boost performance when driving up steep grades or down extreme slopes.

While a new Ford truck is right for many people, it is important to at least consider purchasing a certified pre-owned Ford. We spoke to our local dealer, right in downtown Moncks Corner SC. The used cars at Berkeley Ford offer a great selection to fit a variety of budgets. To get in and out of the Ford F150 truck bed, Ford offers class-exclusive box side and tailgate steps. Ford is coming up with modern innovations to make using your truck more convenient and productive.
