The Ford F-350 Super Duty, Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, Ford F-250 Super Duty and Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD are effective pickup truck models for towing, according to Edmunds.com. Apart from being of steady build, these vehicles have impressive standard towing capacities of between 13,000 pounds and 18,500 pounds.
The trucks have some of the highest ratings on the market, as of 2015. Their towing power and utility is good, but they have the disadvantage of guzzling fuel. Therefore, consumers who are more concerned about fuel efficiency may not prefer these trucks. Since these ratings are based on standard towing, the trucks can have even higher ratings when looking at other criteria. For example, the RAM 3500 model can reach a rating of 30,000 pounds.
