Towing and Payload Capacity

You might think that the Tundra’s horsepower and torque makes for capability that’s comparable to the 2016 Ford F-150, but you’d be wrong. The F-150’s groundbreaking aluminum-alloy body shed 700 pounds compared to previous models while also increasing strength, so both towing and payload ratings are exceptional:

  • Maximum Towing: A best-in-class 12,200 pounds in the F-150 vs. just 10,500 pounds with the Tundra.
  • Maximum Payload: A best-in-class 3,270 pounds in the F-150 vs. just 1,555 pounds in the Tundra.
