2022 Ford F-150 Payload Capacity Chart

Before we dive into the specifics of the F-150’s payload capacities, let’s define what we mean by “payload capacity.”

Simply put, the payload capacity is the maximum weight that your vehicle can carry in its cab and bed, including passengers, cargo, and accessories.

The payload capacities of each engine vary depending on the cab size and cargo bed you select.

The table below summarizes the maximum payload capacities for each engine by cab size:

ENGINEREGULAR CAB (6.5- / 8-FT. BED)SUPERCAB (6.5- / 8-FT. BED)SUPERCREW® (5.5- / 6.5-FT. BED)

High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost V61,410 lbs. / –
2022 Ford F-150 Payload Capacity Chart

This payload capacity is calculated by subtracting the vehicle’s curb weight (the weight of the empty vehicle, including all fluids and a full tank of gas) from its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), which is the maximum weight that the vehicle can carry, as determined by the manufacturer.

For example, if the GVWR of your F-150 is 7,000 pounds and its curb weight is 5,500 pounds, then your payload capacity is 1,500 pounds (7,000 – 5,500).

This means that you can safely load up to 1,500 pounds of gear, equipment, or cargo in your F-150 without exceeding its weight limit.

2022 Ford F150 Axle Ratio Codes

Axle Ratio is another spec that can be seen on the owner’s manual because 2022 F150s with the same engine size but different axle ratios are likely to have different towing capacities.

You can find the Axle Ratio of your 2022 F150 tuck by checking through Safety Compliance Certification Label (Door Jamb Label) or VIN decoder. This is a 2-digit code written with the word AXLE. 

If you don’t find it, then use this table and chart to find the corresponding axle ratio code of the truck.

Rear Step Bumper vs. Hitch Receiver

The 2022 F150 Pickup rear step bumper can tow a maximum of 5,000 lbs weight-carrying Trailers with a maximum tongue load of 500 lbs. You must not exceed this limit when towing with a bumper only.

The tongue load refers to the downward force that the tongue of the trailer exerts on the rear step bumper or the hitch receiver. Usually, it’s 10-15% of the trailer weight.

To tow greater loads, your truck will require a particular hitch receiver (Class III or Class IV) and weight-distributing hitches.

Frontal Area Considerations

The frontal area can also affect the towing capacity of the 2022 F150 truck.

Frontal Area Consideration/Limitation refers to the total area from the front of the vehicle and the trailer exposed to air resistance while moving. The area is measured in square feet. For 2022 F150 Frontal Area Limitations/Consideration are given in this chart.

Max Cargo Weight with Slide-in Camper Chart

You can add a slide-in camper to your 2022 F150 Truck only if it has 3.5L EcoBoost V6 or 5.0 V8 engine equipped with a Heavy-Duty Payload Package. You should consider the information given in the below chart if you want to add a slide-in camper to your truck.

How to Calculate 2022 Ford F150 Towing Capacity

While measuring the towing capacity of your specific 2022 F-150 truck configuration, you must calculate it considering GCWR, curb weight, passenger weight, cargo weight, and any truck body additions.

The simple formula for calculating the 2022 F150 towing capacity is GCWR – Curb Weight – Passengers Weight – Cargo Weight – Truck Body Additions ≥ Maximum Trailer Weight.

You can find GCWR and curb weight by VIN decoder. Simply enter the 17-digit VIN of your 2022 F150 truck and press the decode button. You’ll find all the information needed to calculate the towing capacity.

2022 Ford F150 Tongue Load

The tongue load is the downward force that the tongue of the trailer exerts on the rear step bumper or the hitch receiver. It’s usually 10-15% of the trailer weight.

  • For conventional trailer towing, the tongue load weight is calculated as 10% of the total loaded trailer weight.
  • For 5th-wheel towing, the tongue load weight is calculated as 15% of the total loaded trailer weight.

Let’s take an example; if the max trailer weight (max towing capacity) is 14,000 lbs then the tongue weight must not exceed 1,400 lbs (or 10% of the total value)
