Does the V6 have enough power to tow a trailer?


It all depends on what the vehicle is and what kind of trailer. My Chevy Impala has a V6 in it and has more horse power than my original V8 engine in my '95 Chevy Silverado full size truck.

absolutely the ford 3.5 ecoboost 6 cylinder can tow a trailer! in a supercrew with the max trailer tow package and 5.5 foot box, you can tow over 11000 lbs. I tow a 9200 pound trailer with my 2015 F150. The best thing is when I'm not towing I get fantastic fuel mileage.
