Really sharp truck. I love the color.

I had the trailer backup assist on my 2016. I liked it as it really helps out when I could get it to work reliably. When it worked it did great. I agree it made going straight much easier. Lighting was always an issue for the camera to see the sticker. I stopped using it mostly because it took too long to find the sticker when I was blocking the street. It did help to teach me the best way to parallel park my trailer in storage.

360 cameras are great but ford needs to make them higher resolution. In my 2019 they are better but with the bigger screen in the 2021 it will be noticed. You can tell in low light how much improvement they need.

The messaging seats are the real deal though. Great for those long trips when you start to get sore.

The only trailer I use the assist on is my short utility trailer as that thing is a bear to keep straight. For my 2 boats and travel trailer I don't bother anymore. Like previous poster said, the only time I might want it is at night and its hard for the vehicle to read the sticker.

9, 300 Lbs with the 22" tires if they were 20" tires it would have 10'500 Ilbs if it were 19" tires it would have been 12,500 lbs

Don't think you understood the question. They asked what your PAYLOAD capacity is. What you posted is TOWING capacity.
Payload Capacity is what the amount of weight the truck can carry. Towing Capacity is to what it can tow.
Your owners manual has an excellent Towing section, which will explain the differences and why payload capacity is as important as towing capacity, if not MORE important.

Max towing capacity is with 20" wheels and tires.

From the towing guide. 2018-2020 are the same

Quote:
1) Max towing on 2019 F-150 XLT SuperCrew®, 6.5' box, 3.5L EcoBoost® engine, 4x2 and Max Trailer Tow Package with 20" tires.
That is for 13,200 pounds towing. Shorter box 145" wheel base Screw cabs drop to 12,700 pounds, requires max tow with 20" wheels.

However the OP has a Limited, and because of the 22" wheels, 4x2 is 11,000 pounds and 4x4 is 9400 pounds.

So with 10% tongue weight, Plus hitch, Plus 150 pound driver, at minimum the truck needs 1190 pounds payload. Which it should have but we are talking conventional towing with a trailer that can tow @ 10%. A travel trailer needs at least 13% for stable towing due to the axle placement and that is is a huge wind sail. A 9400 pound travel trailer would be around 1220 pounds on the ball, which may exceed the receiver rating, though it might be 1250 with the HD towing package, if included as an option. That of course is maxed out, but at minimum would need 1470 pounds payload, providing just the driver and weighs 150 pounds.

I am not sure of the HO is a heavier engine than the standard 3.5, but considering the Limited has the same options as the Platinum, plus one more tail pipe, on average the 4x4 platinum Ecoboost Max Tow have 1524-1580 pounds payload, so by doing the math it is possible for the Limited to actually have the capacity to tow the 9400 pound rated trailer. All boils down to that yellow sticker on the door that lists weights and capacities

RACE Red, not Rapid Red. Or as my wife calls it, Give Me a Ticket Red. Says so in the brochure and on my 2019 window sticker
Great truck. Congrats!
Well worth the time, after accessorizing your new truck, to swing by the CAT scales to get true weights, with and without the PUP. I tend to carry a lot of convenience and just in case items in my truck.

Join the Ford F-150 forum. Tons of great info there.

If it said that on the window sticker I think you better have second thoughts about the purchase. Ford should have written it on the tailgate in big letters.
