The Latest Ford F-150 Offers Best-in-Class Towing

Ford's F-150 continues to reign as one of the country's best-selling trucks for several years running. With the latest 2019 model, Ford hopes to continue that trend. The F-150 is a full-sized pickup truck known for being rugged and reliable. It offers great performance and class-leading capability features for drivers in Elkhart and elsewhere.

Here at Zeigler Ford of Elkhart, we're impressed with what the new F-150 has to offer. We believe that truck lovers will be impressed, too. The new Ford F-150 has plenty of power and torque thanks to two very powerful engines choices. Two of the top performers are the 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V-6 and the 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel. The V-6 gasoline engine can produce 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The diesel model can crank out 250 horsepower with 440 pound-feet of torque. These numbers are among the best available in this class of vehicles. All that power and torque leads to amazing capabilities where it matters the most for a pickup truck. If these two engines are just not enough, you can also opt for a 5.0-liter V-8 for those heavy-duty jobs.

When properly equipped, a new F-150 with the V-6 engine can tow up to 13,200 pounds. The diesel motor can pull up to 11,400 pounds. Once again, these numbers put the Ford F-150 at the top of the pack in this class of full-sized pickup trucks. They win out against the competition in payload capacity as well. The Ford F-150 towing abilities are further enhanced through smart features. Ford's Pro Trailer Backup Assist allows the driver to drive in reverse with ease even with a trailer attached. An 8-inch display screen provides trailer information and gives the driver a heads up to prevent any potential problems.

Ford has also made safety a priority while towing. You get factory-installed, synchronized braking for the truck and trailer. A Blind Spot Information System is also available for most trim levels. This gives drivers a warning when vehicles are in your blind spot or generally near the trailer. Are you ready to take home a new Ford F-150? Come and test drive a Ford truck at our showroom today!
