Speaking of the new Ranger Raptor's towing capacity, I decided to do a little research about previous models' numbers. That's what I found out:
2017 FORD RAPTOR SUPER CAB
Maximum payload weight: 1,000 lbs
Maximum trailer weight: 6,000 lbs (with a weight distributing hitch, see table below).
GCWR: 12,000 lbs
2017 FORD RAPTOR SUPER CREW CAB
Maximum payload weight: 1,200 lbs
Maximum trailer weight: 8,000 lbs (with a weight distributing hitch, see table below).
GCWR: 14,250 lbs
We can see that previous model had great results in towing, however, the question about the upcoming model is still in the air.
From the introduction video, we can notice that new Raptor looks bit smaller than 2017 Ford Raptor. If they going to focus their attention on off-road specs, I'm pretty sure that Raptor's towing capacity should be lower than 2017 model, but what numbers are we talking about? What do you think?
