When you’re researching for a powerful pickup truck, you’ve likely come across the 2021 Ford F-450 and the 2021 Ford F-550. Both models can complete your jobs in Ft Lauderdale easily, but which is the better fit for you? Here are a few things you should know about these trucks:

  • The Ford F-450 is available as a Super Duty model with a conventional pickup bed, or it can be had as a Chassis Cab. On the other hand, the Ford F-550 can only be had as a Chassis Cab.
  • Chassis Cab models are easier to customize but usually can’t tow as much as their pickup-style counterparts. With that said, they often offer higher payload ratings.
  • If you know you want a Chassis Cab, you can access higher towing and payload limits with the F-550.

Discover more details in the following 2021 Ford F-450 vs. F-550 guide, including the F-450 and F-550 towing capacities, before making a final decision.

 

 

F-450 vs. F-550: Super Duty or Chassis Cab?

You’ll find the Ford F-450 Super Duty to be worth the cost if you need to tow a lot and you don’t need a specialized back end for your commercial vehicle. Here is the 2021 F-450 Super Duty towing capacity breakdown:

F-450 Towing Capacity (Super Duty)

  • F-450 Super Duty with Conventional Trailer – Tow up to 24,200 pounds
  • F-450 Super Duty with Gooseneck/5th-Wheel Trailer – Tow up to 37,000 pounds

The Super Duty specs are outstanding and even out beat the towing capacities offered by both the F-450 Chassis Cab and the F-550 Chassis Cab:

F-450 Towing Capacity (Chassis Cab)

  • F-450 Chassis Cab with Conventional Trailer – Tow up to 17,500 pounds
  • F-450 Chassis Cab with Gooseneck/5th-Wheel Trailer – Tow up to 26,600 pounds

F-550 Towing Capacity (Chassis Cab)

  • F-550 Chassis Cab with Conventional Trailer – Tow up to 18,500 pounds
  • F-450 Chassis Cab with Gooseneck/5th-Wheel Trailer – Tow up to 31,600 pounds

But if payload capacity is more of your priority in Orlando, consider one of the Chassis Cab models over the Super Duty. Compare the maximum payload capacities for all three options below:

  • F-450 Payload Capacity (Super Duty): Haul up to 6,210 pounds
  • F-450 Payload Capacity (Chassis Cab): Haul up to 9,850 pounds
  • F-550 Payload Capacity (Chassis Cab): Haul up to 12,750 pounds
