Every Truck Ranked by Towing Capacity

The main reason that buyers opt for trucks is for their workhorse abilities. Their power, hauling, and towing capacity, combined with the flexibility of the open bed make them perfect for almost any job that could be demanded of them.

But not every truck is built the same. With three different classes (mid-size, full-size, and heavy-duty), each truck has differing mechanical capacities. You can’t just hook any truck up to a boat and be on your way. That’s why we took every truck currently available on the market and ranked them according to their towing capacity.

We’ve made notes for each one denoting if they are the best or worst in their respective class. And we’ve also noted what the lowest price point is for buyers to reach the max towing capacity. Just because a truck starts at $30,000 doesn’t mean the max towing capacity is available at that cheapest price point. Most are only found on higher trims or included with optional trailering packages that cost extra.
