Can’t even begin to say how gob smacked impressed I am with this F150 Hybrid
The ride quality is like riding on a cushion
The technology is simply first rate. It will tow 14,000lbs! But best of all it has automatic load leveling so you don’t need to install those stupid air bags for trailering. Got the platinum loaded. The limited does not come with a tow mirrors as an option.As you can see I got the black out option.
Really can’t say enough about it!
I’m sure Karl Brauer could do a brilliant write up!

Rocketman, that looks like a puny hitch.

It’s a standard tagalong hitch

Wasn't too long ago that towing 14,000 pounds was solidly in the 3/4 to 1 ton truck range.

How does it brake while towing a heavy load.

It has adjustment to add or reduce Brake gain
Just like trailering anything you have to anticipate breaking and keep a safe distance. The basic rule of thumb of trailing ,as we all know. Seems to do great pulling my trailer race car and all the parts to go with it. It pulls like a dream compared to my previous F150

What kind of range does it get if your towing a trailer such as a car hauler with a car? Say about 8500 lbs for trailer, car and equipment.

I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts and experiences. I'm looking for a new tow rig to pull my 24' aluminum trailer, track car and equipment. I need something to replace my 2018 F150 and I'm looking for options.

It has a 14k towing capacity. Based on having had several F159’s ( my last was a 2018 diesel)
I imagine it’s going to be terrific full report on Sunday!
