Referring to item # 2. The curb weight from base to fully optioned is a 800 lb difference. If the gvwr ends up being equal that means on the 2 door for a fully optioned vehicle payload would be in the 400 range and the 600 range for a 4 door. This leads me to believe gvwr will be adjusted, possibly for the 2.7. If not, those with badlands and fe will have the lowest payload. Going with posted data.From published data:
Heaviest curb weight = 5129 (2-Doors) or 5320 lbs (4-Doors).
Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) = 8840 lbs. (for both 2 & 4 Doors)
Payload Rating = 1170 or 1370 lbs. (for 2-Doors or 4-Doors, respectively)
I don't remember whether the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) has been published or not. Even if it has not, we can still draw a couple of conclusions from the published data we currently have.
1. For non-towing, the payload is 1170 (2-Doors) or 1370 lbs (4-Doors). Because Ford published these numbers.
2. For towing, the max tow rating is 3500 lbs. Tongue weight would be 350 lbs. (typically 10% of tow weight).
- On 2-Doors trims, you can tow 3500 lbs. and carry a payload of 820 lbs. (1170 - 350).
- On 4-Doors trims, you can tow 3500 lbs. and carry a payload of 1020 lbs. (1370 - 350).
