When you need more power than what a half-ton pickup truck can give you, turn your eyes to the Ford F-250, first in the lineup of Super Duty Ford trucks. With more payload and towing capacity, the Ford F-250 is for bigger, dirtier jobs. This big truck can tow up to 15,000 pounds maximum and has a payload capacity of 4,332 pounds. That’s almost double the payload and towing capacities of the F-150. That’s not to say that you won’t find creature comforts and optional extras if you want them. But the F-250 is made for working, first and foremost.
