Ford F-150 Payload Capacities (2009-2019)

The payload capacity is oftentimes the overlooked capacity when it comes to the F-150 but plays a vital role in the overall capacity of the truck and what it can haul.

The data can be found relatively easy, if you know where to look but I wanted to simplify the process.

This page is dedicated to all of the Ford F-150's that were made between 2009-2019 and contains a breakdown of all of the payload capacities for each year and engine configuration. I hope it is helpful!

2019 F-150 Payload Capacity:

The overall payload capacity for the 2019 F-150 ranged from 1,280 lbs.-3,270 lbs. according to the 2019 F-150 spec sheet. The LIMITED and RAPTOR models had some of the lowest payload capacities and the 5.0L engine had the best, with the appropriate packages and configurations equipped.
