Just an FYI that Ford made available today the towing specs for their 2017 Super Duty Line.

They need to put that grill on the new F150s as they have the ugliest grill ever.

I know. I have a 2015 XLT and like the 300 group option grill, better than the 302. But, I digress. I was trying to maximize creature comforts as well as payload. The inverse proportion of creature comforts to payload landed me on the XLT 302 group with the ugly grill.

I actually really like the new look of the 150's.

Not bad. The one equivalent to my Silverado, F-250 Crew Cab 4x4 diesel, comes close at 14,700 lb. to the 5th wheel capacity of my Silverado, 15,800 lb.

The big picture is the GCWR, went up 5000 lbs most trucks go over the GCWR before ever getting close to the trucks tow rating on SRW trucks.

Yeah, I think this one will be the exception looking at the numbers. An F-250 with 6.2L gas and 4.3 gears, the GVWR is still 10,000. The max trailer weight is 15,000 either conventional or 5th wheel.

But the GCWR is 28,700. So their is no way you will ever go over GCWR without first either maxing out on Payload, or Trailer weight.

15,000 Max Trailer + 10,000 GVWR = 25,000. Sooooo.... Where does the other 3,700 come from?

They actually put lower ratings on the F-250 to keep it under specific values because in certain states when you exceed 15,000 you require different licensing and insurance when it exceeds them. Given the 350 has minor differences in build you can see the F-250 has the capability but the numbers are kept lower for this purpose.

Yep. Those rating come from the tow vehicle weight, hence the crew cab has less capacity compared to the traditional sized truck.
More weight, beefier, less capacity.
Why am I not surprised to see the difference?

I'm not sure I understand your reply. My Silverado crew cab actually weighs about 30 lbs. more than the equivalent F-250, 7294 vs. 7264.

We have the weight registration issue here in CT. As soon as the truck is registered for 10,001 lbs we have to go to a commercial plate and our wonderful Governor 3 years ago also made us carry on any commercial plate a 1,000,000 minimum liability policy so our insurance has doubled in most cases. I have a few 14' box trucks that are 14,500 lbs so it hurts in this state and that is why we are out of here soon.
