Get Best-in-Class Horsepower, Best-in-Class Torque, Best-in-Class Towing and

Best-in-Class Hauling with a 2019 Ford F-150

The 2019 Ford F-150 has best-in-class towing of up to 13,200 pounds, when properly equipped. Plus, it has best-in-class payload of 3,270 pounds.  All in all, the  F-150 can easily tow and haul all your necessary work equipment.

The 2019 Ram 1500 also has an impressive towing capability. However, at 12,750 pounds, it doesn't quite measure up to the F-150. Plus, its maximum payload is just 2,300 pounds. 

The F-150 also offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time: the truck going one way and the trailer going another. With the assist feature, simply rotate a knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go.

Unfortunately, because this feature is class-exclusive, you won't find it in the Ram 1500.

Great experience from beginning to end. On their Website, I saw one of their Internet specials advertised, so I went in, set up a test drive, asked my questions, set up financing, and -- only around 3 hours after I'd walked in -- drove away with my new car. The purchase went quickly and efficiently.

I went in for my 6 month check up as required for my maintenance package. Quite some time passed and I remembered that I needed new wiper blades. I went back and asked if that could be added and my service guy just smiled and added it. It was all covered in my plan. I'm bad at getting names but I have had nothing but great experiences in the dealership and service department. Highly recommend them. Not everyone is perfect, nor does everyone have a good day everyday. I have read the bad reviews and am thankful I have not had the same experiences. Keep up the good work and get these reviews up! 5 star for this household!

I have been servicing my 07 Navigator L at Cotton since I bought it new. Great service still going strong. Wouldn't take it anywhere else! Service manager Davy Malloy is one of the main reasons that I still service my Ford and Lincoln vehicles at Cotton. Great attention to detail.
