For 2015 models, the maximum towing capacity of a Ford F-350 ranges from 12,100 pounds to 26,500 pounds, depending on the configuration of the vehicle and the trailer. Vehicle options with the greatest impact on towing capacity include the engine, the rear axle style and the rear axle gear ratio.
The maximum towing capacity is limited by the gross combined weight rating for the vehicle and the total weight of the vehicle, passengers, cargo and trailer. Since there are so many variables that can affect the maximum towing capacity, it is important to consult official documentation to determine it for a specific vehicle. Exceeding the towing capacity can damage vital vehicle components and create hazardous conditions.
