POWERFUL ENGINE CHOICES
6.7L V8 Turbo –
The Diesel Leader
Designed, engineered and built
by Ford, our Second-Generation
6.7L Power Stroke ® V8 Turbo
Diesel engine is designed to
produce more power and torque
than ever. And the new larger
single-sequential turbocharger
helps improve airflow and
performance. You’ll really
appreciate it when towing heavy
loads uphill and at high altitudes.
Rule the Class With 6.2L 2-Valve V8 Gas
Ease your heavy-duty workload with lots of low-rpm torque. The
gas engine’s stiff SOHC valvetrain with roller-rocker shafts enables
an intake- and exhaust-port layout that optimizes airflow, helping
it produce plenty of torque down low.
Balanced performance. Dual-equal variable cam timing phases
the intake- and exhaust-valve opening and closing events
simultaneously to optimize fuel economy, low-end torque and
peak horsepower.
Alternative fuel options include a CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine
Prep Package that readies your truck to be upfit for compressed
natural gas (CNG), propane autogas, or as a bi-fuel vehicle with the
ability to seamlessly switch between CNG or propane and gasoline.

Driver Assist and Smart Technology
Trailer Sway Control
Standard Hill Start Assist
Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System
Works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac® with
RSC (Roll Stability Control™) to detect trailer
sway and reduce it as necessary
Helps prevent rolling back on a grade by
momentarily maintaining brake pressure until
the engine delivers enough torque to move the
truck up the hill
Available 360-degree
camera with split-view
display utilizes 4 cameras
to provide an all-around
view on 8" color screen
AdvanceTrac® control module incorporates
additional software to monitor the vehicle’s
performance while towing
The added software measures the yaw motion
of the vehicle to determine if the trailer is
swaying and then responds to eliminate the
sway condition(4)
Trailer Brake Controller (TBC)(5)
Ensures smooth and effective trailer braking
by powering the trailer’s brakes with an
output proportional to the towing vehicle’s
brake pressure
The controller adapts output based on the
status of the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
When the ABS module senses the towing
vehicle’s brakes are approaching lockup, the
controller’s trailer braking strategy changes to
compensate for traction conditions, reducing
the risk of trailer brake lockup
Provides instant visual and audible warnings in
case of accidental trailer disconnect
Fully integrated into the truck’s brake system
Manual control lever and +/– (GAIN
adjustment) buttons allow the trailer brakes
to be manually applied and adjusted for
improved performance
Factory-installed and warranted by
Ford Motor Company (6)
Whether heading up an incline in drive or in
reverse, you’re covered

Provides the necessary under-the-bed
hardware to allow mounting of a 5th-wheel/
gooseneck hitch in the pickup bed to put more
of the trailer weight over the tow vehicle
Features five pickup bed attachment points
with plugs, frame under-bed crossmember and
integrated 7-pin connector
Trailer Reverse Guidance
Tow/Haul Mode With Integrated
Engine-Exhaust Brake (7)
Provides additional braking and control on
downhill grades when used in combination
with the engine brake feature on the 6.7L V8
turbo diesel engine
Included within the standard rear-view camera,
providing added driver convenience when
hitching a trailer
ses a dynamic centerline in the display to
U
assist in guiding the truck backward
Helps better position the truck with a trailer
coupler
As steering adjustments are made, the
projected path is shown on the screen
Reduces the need for a spotter or having to get
in and out of the truck to check position
Tow Technology Bundle
Tow/haul mode and tow/haul mode with
integrated engine-exhaust brake (6.7L diesel
only) with auto setting give drivers even
greater control when traveling downhill
Helps eliminate unwanted frequency of gear
shifting on steep uphill grades and allow
engine braking to maintain or reduce vehicle
speed and assist the driver in controlling the
vehicle when descending a steep grade
Trailer Reverse Guidance uses 3 cameras to
provide multiple views of trailers, as well as
steering guidance graphics, to assist with trailer

Frontal Area is the total area in square feet that a moving vehicle and trailer exposes to air
resistance. The chart above shows the maximum trailer frontal area that must be considered for a
vehicle/trailer combination. Exceeding these limitations m​​ay significantly reduce the performance
of your towing vehicle.
Rear Axle Ratio Codes
X(4)
If you do not know the axle ratio of your vehicle, check its Truck Safety
Compliance Certification Label (located on the left front door lock
facing or the door latch post pillar). Below the bar code, you will see
the word AXLE and a two-digit code. Use this chart to find the axle
ratio that corresponds to that code:
(1) Requires 6.7L diesel engine. (2) In-cab, no controller (SRW). (3) F-350
DRW/F-450 only. (4) Chrome (Lariat/King Ranch) or Polished (Platinum).
Notes: • Content may vary depending on model, trim and/or powertrain.
See your dealer for specific content information.
• Trailer Towing Package recommended for all light trucks that will be used
for towing to help ensure easy, proper connection of trailer lights.

Ratings also assume weight of engine and standard
transmission. Cargo Weight Rating shown must be
further reduced by weight of transmission upgrade
and any other options. Option weights and center-ofgravity information are available on the Ford Pickup
Truck Consumer Information Sheet
Slide-In Camper Installation
Consult your camper manufacturer/dealer for details
regarding proper installation of your slide-in camper
A dimensionally stable block spacer is recommended
between the headboard of the pickup box and the
forward edge of the camper floor. Resting the spacer
on the pickup box bed helps prevent movement and
contact of the fully installed camper with the pickup
box headboard or taillight rear pillars
Note: Be sure to measure your slide-in camper before attempting to
install it onto the bed of the truck. Some campers may require a platform
in the bed of the truck to make sure there is adequate clearance for both
the box rails and cab roof of the truck.
Camper Center-of-Gravity
All Styleside pickups that qualify for slide-in camper
bodies have camper center-of-gravity included on the
Consumer Information Sheet in the glovebox
Data is calculated for each individual truck, based on
vehicle options
If vehicle does not qualify for camper use, the
Consumer Information Sheet states that the vehicle is
not recommended for camper use, and no center-ofgravity data is shown

KNOW
BEFORE
YOU TOW
BEFORE YOU BUY
Brakes
Trailer Lamps
If you are selecting a vehicle
that will be used for towing,
you should determine the
approximate weight of the
trailer you intend to tow,
including the weight of any
additional cargo and fluids
that you will be carrying in
the trailer. Also, be sure the
vehicle has the proper optional
equipment. Keep in mind that
performance can be severely
affected in hilly terrain when
the minimum acceptable
powertrain combination is
selected. Consider purchasing
a vehicle with a more powerful
engine.
Many states require a separate braking system on
trailers with a loaded weight of more than 1,500
pounds. For your safety, Ford Motor Company
recommends that a separate functional brake system
be used on any towed vehicle, including those dollytowed or towbar-towed. There are several basic types
of brake systems designed to activate trailer brakes:
1. E
lectronically Controlled Brakes usually
provide automatic and manual control of trailer
brakes. They require that the tow vehicle be
equipped with a controlling device and additional
wiring for electrical power. These brakes typically
have a control box installed within reach of
the driver and can be applied manually or
automatically.
Make sure the trailer is equipped with lights that conform
to all applicable government regulations. The trailer
lighting system should not be connected directly
to the lighting system of the vehicle. See a local
recreational vehicle dealer or rental trailer agency for
correct wiring and relays for the trailer and heavy-duty
flashers.
AFTER YOU BUY
Before heading out on a trip,
check your vehicle’s Owner’s
Manual for break-in and severeduty maintenance schedules
(do not tow a trailer until your
vehicle has been driven at
least 1,000 miles). Be sure to
have your fully-loaded vehicle
(including passengers) and
trailer weighed so as not to
exceed critical weight limits. If
any of these limits are exceeded,
cargo should be removed from
the vehicle and/or trailer until all
weights are within the specified
limits.
2. Electric-Over-Hydraulic (EOH) Trailer
Brakes are operated by an electrically powered
pump that pressurizes a hydraulic fluid reservoir
built into the trailer’s brake system. Many of the
available EOH trailer brake models are compatible
with the Ford factory installed, dash-integrated
Trailer Brake Controller (TBC).
3. Surge Brakes are independent hydraulic brakes
activated by a master cylinder at the junction of
the hitch and trailer tongue. They are not controlled
by the hydraulic fluid in the tow vehicle’s brake
system, and the tow vehicle’s hydraulic system
should never be connected directly to the trailer’s
hydraulic system.
Be sure your trailer brakes conform to all applicable
state regulations. See Towing Safely for All Vehicles
on the next page for additional braking information.
Safety Chains
– Always use safety chains when towing. Safety chains
are used to retain connection between the towing
and towed vehicle in the event of separation of the
trailer coupling or ball
– Cross chains under the trailer tongue to prevent the
tongue from contacting the ground if a separation
occurs. Allow only enough slack to permit full turning
– be sure they do not drag on the pavement
– When using a frame-mounted trailer hitch,
attach the safety chains to the frame-mounted
hitch using the recommendations supplied by the
hitch manufacturer
– See your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for safety chain
attachment information
– For rental trailers, follow rental agency instructions
for hookup of safety chains
Trailer Wiring Harness
– Some vehicles equipped with a factory-installed
Trailer Tow Package include a trailer wiring harness
and a wiring kit
– This kit includes one or more jumper harnesses
(to connect to your trailer wiring connector) and
installation instructions
TOWING SAFELY FOR ALL VEHICLES
Towing a trailer is demanding on your vehicle, your trailer and your personal driving skills.
Follow some basic rules that will help you tow safely and have a lot more fun.
Weight Distribution
For optimum handling and braking, the
load must be properly distributed
Keep center of gravity low for best
handling
Approximately 60% of the allowable
cargo weight should be in the front half
of the trailer and 40% in the rear (within
limits of tongue load or king pin weight)
Load should be balanced from side-toside to optimize handling and tire wear
Load must be firmly secured to prevent
shifting during cornering or braking,
which could result in a sudden loss
of control
Before Starting
Before setting out on a trip, practice
turning, stopping and backing up your
trailer in an area away from heavy traffic
Know clearance required for trailer roof
Check equipment (make a checklist)
Backing Up
Back up slowly, with someone spotting
near the rear of the trailer to guide you
Place one hand at bottom of steering
wheel and move it in the direction you
want the trailer to go
Make small steering inputs – slight
movement of steering wheel results in
much greater movement in rear of trailer
Turning
When turning, be sure to swing wide
enough to allow trailer to avoid curbs
and other obstructions.
Braking
If your trailer starts to sway, apply
brake pedal gradually. The sliding
lever on the TBC should be used only
for manual activation of trailer brakes
when adjusting the gain. Misuse, such
as application during trailer sway,
could cause instability of trailer and/or
tow vehicle
Towing On Hills
Downshift the transmission to assist
braking on steep downgrades and to
increase power (reduce lugging) when
climbing hills
With TorqShift® transmission, select
tow/haul mode to automatically
eliminate unwanted gear search when
going uphill and help control vehicle
speed when going downhill
Parking With A Trailer
Whenever possible, vehicles with
trailers should not be parked on a
grade. However, if it is necessary, place
wheel chocks under the trailer’s wheels,
following the instructions below.
Spare Tire Use
The added weight of the trailer can
dramatically decrease the acceleration
of the towing vehicle – exercise caution.
A conventional, identical full-size spare
tire is required for trailer towing (mini,
compact and dissimilar full-size spare
tires should not be used; always
replace the spare tire with a new road
tire as soon as possible).
When passing a slower vehicle, be sure
to allow extra distance. Remember, the
added length of the trailer must clear
the other vehicle before you can pull
back in
Signal and make your pass on level
terrain with plenty of clearance
If necessary, downshift for improved
acceleration
Driving With An Automatic
Overdrive Transmission
With certain automatic overdrive
transmissions, towing – especially
in hilly areas – may cause excessive
shifting between overdrive and the next
lower gear.
To eliminate this condition and achieve
steadier performance, overdrive can be
locked out (see vehicle Owner’s Manual)
Apply the foot service brakes and hold
If excessive shifting does not occur, use
overdrive to optimize fuel economy
Have another person place the wheel
chocks under the trailer wheels on the
downgrade side
Overdrive may also be locked out to
obtain engine braking on downgrades
Once the chocks are in place, release
brake pedal, making sure the chocks
will hold the vehicle and trailer
Apply the parking brake
S hift automatic transmission into park,
or manual transmission into reverse
With 4-wheel drive, make sure the
transfer case is not in neutral (if
applicable)
Allow considerably more distance for
stopping with trailer attached
Starting Out Parked On
A Grade
Remember, the braking system of the
tow vehicle is rated for operation at the
GVWR, not GCWR
Apply the foot service brake and hold
If your tow vehicle is an F-150, F-Series
Super Duty ®, Transit or Expedition
and your trailer has electric brakes,
the optional Integrated Trailer Brake
Controller (TBC) assists in smooth and
effective trailer braking by powering the
trailer’s electric or electric-over-hydraulic
brakes with proportional output based
on the towing vehicle’s brake pressure
Acceleration And Passing
Start the engine with transmission in
park (automatic) or neutral (manual)
Shift the transmission into gear and
release the parking brake
Release the brake pedal and move the
vehicle uphill to free the chocks
Apply the brake pedal while another
person retrieves the chocks
When available, select tow/haul mode
to automatically eliminate unwanted
gear search and help control vehicle
speed when going downhill
On The Road
After about 50 miles, stop in a
protected location and double-check:
Trailer hitch attachment
Lights and electrical connections
Trailer wheel lug nuts for tightness
Engine oil – check regularly throughout trip
High Altitude Operation
Gasoline engines lose power by 3-4%
per 1,000 ft. elevation. To maintain
performance, reduce GVWs and GCWs
by 2% per 1,000 ft. elevation starting at
the 1,000 ft. elevation point.
Powertrain/Frontal Area
Considerations
The charts in this Guide show the
minimum engine size needed to move
the GCW of tow vehicle and trailer.
Under certain conditions, however, (e.g.,
when the trailer has a large frontal area
that adds substantial air drag or when
trailering in hilly or mountainous terrain)
it is wise to choose a larger engine
Driving With Cruise Control Selecting a trailer with a low-drag,
