Light-Duty Pickup Trucks Battle for Towing Supremacy

Towing capacity is a major reason many people decide to put a pickup truck in their garage or driveway. Thanks to their rugged builds and powerful engines, a compact or full-size truck is an ideal traveling companion when hauling boats, motorbikes, jet skis, or camping gear. 

For industrial-grade jobs that require tens of thousands of pounds of towing capacity, truck shoppers gravitate towards heavy-duty versions of the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, Nissan Titan, or Ram pickups. Yet, for many people, these massive machines are towing overkill for more everyday needs. 

We’ve placed every pickup truck that’s in our rankings in descending order based off of its towing capacity. So read on to see which truck tows the most, and who lags behind.
