2020 Ford Ranger Towing and Payload Capacities 

When news of the returning Ranger lineup broke, Ford assured that the reborn truck would be tough enough to send you confidently on your next adventure. This year the 2020 Ford Ranger proves once again that Ford makes good on its promises with towing and payload capacities that excel among the class of midsize trucks. 

How Much Can the 2020 Ford Ranger Haul? 

The 2020 Ford Ranger offers a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. in its most basic form, but that capacity can reach up to an impressive 7,500 lbs. when equipped with the optional Trailer Tow Package. That makes it one of the top performers in the competitive midsize truck segment. The Ford Ranger adheres to the SAE J2807 standard for determining how much the truck can tow.  

The 2020 Ranger delivers a best-in-class maximum 1,860-lb. payload rating when properly. That number applies to Ranger 4×2 models with the SuperCab configuration. The table provided gives a more in-depth look into the towing and payload capacities of each 2020 Ranger configuration when equipped with the Trailer Tow Package. 

Configuration Max Towing Capacity Max Payload Capacity 
Ranger SuperCab 4×2 7,500 lbs. 1,860 lbs. 
Ranger SuperCab 4×4 7,500 lbs. 1,650 lbs. 
Ranger SuperCrew® 4×2 7,500 lbs. 1,770 lbs. 
Ranger SuperCrew® 4×4 7,500 lbs. 1,560 lbs. 

What’s the Difference Between the SuperCab and SuperCrew® Cab? 

Regardless of whether you go with the Ranger XL, XLT or Lariat, you’ll be able to choose from either the SuperCab or the SuperCrew® configuration. With the SuperCab, you’ll have seating for up four passengers with two bucket seats up front and a two-seater bench in the back. This configuration comes paired with the longer six-foot truck bed. If you require more space, the SuperCrew® gives you that option with seating for five passengers and four full-size doors for easier access to the backseat. SuperCrew® models take on a five-foot truck bed to accommodate the extended cabin.
