Wait for v8 7.58 liter.. it’s coming, I read it on internet so it’s real
This was the demo I was testing.
Didn't lookall that squatty after all.......pulled fine. Just could feel the secondary effects of bumps from the tongue weight. Could have used a little less drop hitch too.
I pull my RV and it is 7200lbs. I traded my ecoboost for this raptor with the 6.2 and the ecoboost was rated for more (10k) because the Raptors suspension. Coil over shocks will get you pretty close to that. But 5k is nothing. Especially with electric breaks.
I have a 2018 Raptor. I have seen all kinds of towing weight numbers. My Raptor is a supercab. I’ve seen towing limits of 6,000 lbs; 8,000 lbs and 10,000 lbs. Can someone tell me what the actual boat towing capacity is for the V6? It’s important as my boat and trailer weigh 7,500 lbs. thank you

Just the information I was looking for! I appreciate your clarification.
New member and first post! I'm ready to replace my current truck and the Raptor is really the only truck out there that doesn't feel like "just another truck" to me. My only concern, like others, is towing our boat. I do several day trips (about 50 miles each way) and one long tow (about 500 miles each way) during the summer. The boat is a 23 foot fiberglass IO open bow on a tandem axle trailer. The measured tongue weight is 390 pounds. Is anyone out there towing a similar load and how does the Gen 2 (I would likely be getting a 2019) handle it? With or without a weight distributing hitch? Too much sag with stock springs?
I know there are a lot of towing posts out there (and don't want to beat a dead horse), but really trying to get an apples to apples comparison and/or advice before spending the big $. Thanks in advance!
Youll be fine, light on the tongue is key.
