Like I said last week, trucks are awesome. These vehicles are extremely helpful when it comes to transporting cargo and, when put to the test, the Ford F-150 proved it has the best towing capacity compared to other entry-level pickup trucks on the market.

The new 2013 F-150 has a rated towing capacity of 6,700 pounds, a 600-pound increase over last year’s model.

Powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine, the F-150 can t0w 200 pounds more than the V6-powered Ram 1500. It can haul 1,800 pounds more than the V6-powered Toyota Tundra and  1,300 more than the Chevrolet Silverado.

The 2013 Ford F-150 is the most fuel efficient of its kind with a highway rating of 23 mpg.
