I have 4 runner that tows 5,000 lb. I’m replacing that with my four door bronco. How can I safely tow the same? Increase radiator size? Trans cooler? Better hitch I know for sure. Any ideas?
You don't need an F-150 to tow 5000lbs, unless you're hauling a lot of weight to go with it. And if he came from a 4Runner then he likely isn't.Seems to me you could increase the spring rate and install a heavier hitch, increase the size of the tranny cooler if a 10a is your choice.
Expect a rougher ride when empty. The Bronco to me is made for off road fun and equipping it to haul a heavy trailer ruins the original intention.
Like the first reply, F150.
If suspension was the only significant difference, and those were the only representative examples of a platform's off-road variant, then the Bronco should tow somewhere between (2200/3500 =) 63% and (8000/11300 =) 71% of the Ranger's tow cap. That would be 4700 to 5300lbs.I'm confused by the confusion.
Max tow ratings.
Escape 3,500# Bronco Sport 2,200#
F150 11,300# Raptor 8,000#
So where is the main obvious difference? Suspension
I have suspicions that Ford will come out with a max tow package for 5k pounds MY 22 or 23 and without any official support, it'll just be springs, intercooler, and maybe brakes. At that point, if I want to tow more, I'll just read some forums comparing the package and upgrade.Yeah I have a boat weighs about 4600 pounds loaded , my 4runner tows it OK but could use more power and more torque, the bronco seems to have more power more toque was hoping to use this to go to the river.
