Hi, I saw a 2014 Platinum Super Crew cab on the dealer's show room floor while I was having them find my truck; This truck only had a payload of 1065 lbs. That's pitiful! Hopefully the 2015 will have more than that.

Note: I asked the sales person to search anywhere on the Ford Dealer site and find a payload of 1065 lbs listed and he was unable to find one. He thanked me for showing him that the door sticker was the only real thing that could be trusted. I let him know that if my truck's payload was less than that of my Lincoln, he lost a sale.

Hi, we, the sales person and I, searched all of the books and computer sites and the only accurate thing is the sticker on the actual truck. Mine spec'ed for 1900 lbs payload, but things like the Off Road package caused mine to lose 155 lbs. [down to 1745 lbs] Don't count on anything until you see the actual sticker or one on a truck as close as possible to what you want. Once again a 2015 model should be higher than what I saw on a 2014 model.

I wonder what the XLT version have, may be 2300lbs? Is yours with the HD Payload and Max Tow pkgs?

Kelvin

It was ordered with Max Tow, but not HD Payload (which unfortunately is not available on the 2015 Platinum).

For comparison, my 2013 Platinum with Max Tow has 1490 pounds of payload, according to the door sticker.

I did order the Max Towing and the dealer tells me that the payload should be around 2000lbs. This is for the Platinum. Because it is a high end truck the rear ends are at 3.55 which limits the payload capacity. Currently I only have 1100+lbs. of payload so this new truck will be a heavy upgrade.

Good luck on that! Be sure to post what the door sticker states when you do take delivery on it.

Hi there,

Pardon my ignorance, and I don't mean to be a smart ass, but isn't an F-150 supposed to be a ton pick up. In that case a payload of 1065 lbs fits the bill perfectly. Just saying.

Hi, I will try to answer this question for you; And if I'm wrong, I'm sure that someone will correct me. Basically you would be right, but I don't, and haven't seen, any new trucks listed by tonnage. In the 50's, 60's, and maybe the 70's we all called then 1/2 ton 3/4 ton, and 1 ton trucks. Now they are 150, 250, 350, and 450. Or 1500, 2500, and 3500 series. On my window sticker it says; "Vehicle Description, F-150 2014 F-150 4X4 Supercrew 145" wheelbase 3.5L Ecoboost V-6 Engine" Etc. There is nothing that I have found that designates my truck as a half ton, plus 745 lbs.

It is an antiquated term from many decades ago.

1/2 ton still designates the least payload, 3/4 still designates more payload, and 1 ton still designates even more and so on and so on scooby dooby doo on up to 450, 550, 650, then medium duty (56,000#) and heavy duty (80,000#).
They gotta use some terminology to designate. Why not use terms that have been around 70 or 80 years?

Seems to me the main reason people don't want to use the old terms is because they don't sound big enough...(Think, 1/2 ton as compared to 150, 1500, etc., also 3/4 as compared to 2500, etc, also 1 ton, as compared to 3500.) Seems like if someone wants a truck with the capacity of a 3/4 ton (2500), why the hell, don't they just buy one?

The 3/4 would come with the correct bearings, rear axle capacity, and if they order correctly, it'll have the correct rear axle ration they need for their towing needs.

Also seems to me in the case of the 1/2 ton trucks, some of these owners have a pretty good imagination, od the capacity of the truck, and a lack of understanding of how to set up their hitch. Of course, this doesn't include the owners of the HH and the PP, as they seem to have everything figured out on nearly every subject of towing...

For whatever it's worth.

Larry

The GM and Ram terms 1500, 2500, and 3500 sound even bigger than Ford's terms...

Larry, you and I think a LOT alike!

I remember when the F150 designation first came out..... it was referred to as a "heavy 1/2-ton"....whatever that is.

These days, it seems like a lot of people want to believe (for some reason) that an F150, 1500, or whatever you want to call it, is a good solution for towing a 34' AS or Avion. IMHO, that will never be a good long-term solution. Might be OK for a "feather-light", but not something that grosses at 10K lbs. or over.

Like I've said before, people can do whatever they want, but there's a reason the truck manufacturers make the different classes of trucks. I don't think it's a good idea to use ANY tow vehicle that will be operating at or near it's limits just cruising down the road.
