Which 2018 truck tows the most?
When you are looking for a truck like the Ford F-150 or perhaps the Chevy Silverado 1500, you are going to be looking at a lot of numbers. If you really want to put one of these trucks to work, you are going to be looking at towing. Which 2018 truck tows the most? We have your answers right here. We will dive into the capabilities of the Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado 1500, and the Ford F-150 for 2018.
2018 Ram 1500 towing capability
Maximum Towing: 10,620 Pounds
Each truck will have a specific configuration where this top towing capability is possible. Though other configurations can achieve similar numbers, only a few configurations can actually hit those top numbers.
For the Ram 1500, the max towing capacity is achieved on a 4X2 with a regular cab and an 8-foot box. This is available on the Tradesman, Lone Star, and Big Horn trims.
2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 towing capability
Maximum Towing: 12,500 Pounds
Again, the max towing comes with a 4X2 configuration. You will also need to opt for the 3.42 rear axle, but this time you’ll need either the double cab or the crew cab as the regular cab doesn’t give you the option for the 6.2-liter V8 engine. For max towing, the double cab will need to be paired with a standard box and the crew cab fitted with a short box. These configurations are available on LTZ and High Country trims, the latter of which only has crew cab options available.
2018 Ford F-150 towing capability
Maximum Towing: 13,200 Pounds
The F-150 comes out on top. Though there are several configurations that can beat out the Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500, there is only one configuration that will get you this max towing figure. That configuration is a SuperCrew cab with a 156.8-inch wheelbase in a 4X2 configuration with a 3.55 rear axle and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. This configuration is only available on the XL F-150 trim. If you don’t need to come close to the max trailering capacity for any of these trucks, then these are all wonderful options.
