2015 Ford F150 4x4 – what does your payload sticker read?

To those that have a 2015 F150 4x4 Supercrew with the 3.5 Ecoboost, I would be grateful if you could let me know what the yellow payload sticker inside the driver’s door on your truck says. I would really like to hear from those with the Max Tow package.

To make a long story short, I currently have the luxury of both a daily driver (a car) and a TV that I primarily use for towing my Airstream. My circumstances are going to change shortly, whereas I need to combine both of these vehicles into one vehicle that is suitable for both purposes. My current TV is an F250, which is excellent for towing the Airstream, but is an inch too high to fit into my parking garage at work. Plus it is long and cumbersome for maneuvering in traffic.

Anyway, I’ve seen a 2015 F150 Supercrew 4x4 XLT with the 3.5 Ecoboost, 145 inch wheelbase, FX4 package, and Max Tow package, at a dealer for what seems like a screaming yearend price. The dealer is about 90 minutes away and I’m trying to find out approximately what the payload rating for this truck is before making the trip and dealing with all that going to a dealership involves. I called yesterday but the person I talked to quoted me the number off of the Ford website and did not seem to know what I was talking about. I will see if I can get someone else on the phone tomorrow but thought I’d ask the experts here for input.

The payload number on the Ford website for this truck is 2,020 lbs. I would really like to get to 1,800 lbs to feel comfortable enough to consider replacing the F250.

Thanks for reading.

You need to get a hold of someone at the dealer to give you the real numbers. All models are different depending on the included options.

Someone at the dealer should be able to text a pic of the sticker to you. You want the exact one on that door since different options affect the number.

While you are asking, make sure to get the window sticker as well. I played this game with several dealers, and at least three sent me stickers for trucks other than what we were discussing. With the window sticker you can compare the vin number to the data plate.

Understand that the 2020# is a completely base truck. That will include the 23 gallon fuel tank. Not FX4, not max tow, not much.

To get you started, my King Ranch is 1449#.

Our '15 4wd crew 157" wheelbase XLT Sport MaxTow EB 3.5 has 1907 lbs of payload available per yellow sticker. Fewer toys on XLT but more payload.

Thanks for the replies so far. There seems to be a large range in payloads 1449#-1907#. I wonder where all of the extra weight on the more loaded models comes from.

Called the dealership twice now. Nobody seem to be familiar with the payload sticker, despite my detailed description of its location. This endeavor may be going nowhere at this rate.

i was looking at the same info for a new 2015 screw 145 ecoboost 3.5. A lot of the dealer as clueless in the difference between ''advertised'' payload and the yellow sticker true payload.

the highest i found in canada was with the HD payload option and HD towing package at 2408lbs. That was on a XLT model. You absolutly need to order those or be lucky and find one of those HD payload option (very rare, most dealer never stock those).

I finally went for a 2012 screw 145 ecoboost HD payload and HD towing with 1981lbs on yellow sticker and 11 300lbs towing capacity. I love it!


Lariat, and king ranch are too heavy and always end up with lower payload.

good luck!

While I cannot give an exact number the XLT should have a relatively high payload number. The higher the trim package the payload numbers go down. If I had to guess I would say yours would be around 2000lbs. but I would certainly confirm with the dealer before making the trip. Remember that the XLT may not have all the bells and whistles that you seek.

The addition of a sunroof has a bigger impact on payload than you imagine. Every piece of option/accessory deducts from their catalog number. You are being very wise to make sure before you buy and thereby avoiding buyer's remorse. The tire inflation and loading placard on the door frame is required by regulation for this very reason. So make the salesman put down his cigarette long enough to go out and snap a photo for you.

I recently had a salesman tell me their vehicles didn't have such a placard. Once I finally informed him adequately, he then sent me two different photos that didn't agree. I changed to a different sales person. I think he had been selling costume jewelry at the mall before getting his job selling trucks!

My '15 SCrew sticker says 1674#. It's a Lariat w 3.5 EB, 145" WB, 36gal tank, max tow, and some nice bells and whistles. It seems to do a great job towing my '02 Classic w / slide.

Excellent fuel tank size. That's a very nice feature to have to get more range.

Did you lose a little cargo capacity due to a sunroof?

By the way, the 3.5 Ecoboost pulls like a mule! It has outstanding torque and HP.

I do not have a sunroof !!! I thought it was part of a package that I wanted. So, I was surprised to not have one! But, I don't like them so it worked for me in the end. You are so right about the mule part!! It pulls way better than my '10 with the 5.4 engine. It seems to be always one gear higher than the old truck would have been !!
