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.

I went to Joe Cotton Ford to buy a 2019 Ford Edge because I liked the way they treated me when I bought a new Mustang last year. They really do treat you right like no other dealer I've ever dealt with before. Salesman Jason Conn truly cares about the customer, finding the exact car I wanted through dealer trade. I used to dread car buying in the past from other dealerships but I don't at Cotton Ford.

These are the people you want to work with when you're buying a car, they aren't forcefull at all and genuinely want you to get the right vehicle for you. If you're local, it really pays off too because they throw in a years worth of free oil changes with the purchase of your car.

The service department treated me and my ailing Ford Focus just like royalty. The clutch, transmission control module, and fuel system recall were all replaced in a timely manner. Every car dealership should be as professional as Joe Cotton Ford. The technician that repaired my car must be an expert.

My service for my car was done efficiently. I was kept informed of length of time it would take to complete. My husband’s family has bought over 33 cars from Joe Cotton Ford and one of the reasons they keep coming back to purchase is because of their service on their cars.

I rarely go to a dealer. None of my 4 cars are in warranty so I do most of the work myself. When it is something I cannot do I have a friend who is a private mechanic and he solves the rest of the problems. My 2005 Ford GT was a special case and needed an expert to help with my issues. I am lucky enough to know Dave Malloy, Joe Cottons Service Manager and he encouraged me to bring the car down and he and his SVT certivfied mechanic Todd would help me out. I could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. I was treated like Royalty! My car received the best care of possible. It was fixed promply and properly. The charges were very much in line with the high quality of service I received. Dave was also MOST gracious in taking me around and interducing me the whole support team at Joe Cotton. Including Pam who runs the whole operation. I was impressed to say the least. Although I hope I don't need any serious service in the near future I will definately go back to Joe Cotton Ford when any events occur that require service for my Ford GT. I am convinced that they are the best. Also, should I need a new vehicle. Joe Cotton will be my first stop. I know the great treatment would continue. Sincerely Karl Ayer
