With the release of the 2021 F-250, Ford has brought hauling strength to BC. This full-size pickup â€“ available at Skaha Ford â€“ offers three engines with heavy-duty towing capacities, allowing fleets to take on gruelling jobs with ease.
The 2021 F-250 comes with a standard 6.2L gasoline V8 that generates 385 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. With this block and the six-speed automatic transmission, the Super Duty can tow an estimated 6,804 kg when properly equipped. Adding a fifth-wheel gooseneck increases capacity to an estimated 7,167 kg.
The 2021 F-250 also offers an available 7.3L gasoline V8 with 430 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. Conventional towing with this engine is an estimated 6,804 kg or 8,845 kg with a fifth-wheel gooseneck when properly equipped. However, stepping up to the available 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel gets you the most muscle with 475 hp and 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque. This truck is engineered for heavy loads with an estimated 9,072 kg conventional towing capacity. Adding a fifth-wheel gooseneck increases capacity to 10,342 kg when properly equipped.
