Any 4x4 trucks under 5000lbs

Hi,

Currently towing a 4700lbs Wrangler behind my Ford e450.

Are there any trucks that come under 5000lbs in 4x4? Must be new enough for drivers safety aids. It's only 2 of us and 2 big dogs so a small cab and bed is fine.

Also want to put a truck camper on it somwtimes.

Thanks,

Thanks,

When I looked at the Chevy and the Gmc they lacked adaptive cruise.

Will go look again and check rhe Ford :-)

The Chevy Colorado and the GMC Canyon, Twins, will void warranty with a slide in truck camper.

I suspect that is the case with most any of the mid-size trucks and anything you will find under 5K pounds. Now, if you are just talking a cap, not a problem.

3rd Gen Tacomas have adaptive cruise, collision/pedestrian avoidance and lane departure warning but are not flat towable unless you add a driveshaft disconnect. Can't speak to the issue of slide-in campers and warranty.

Look at the F-150 with the 2.7 eco-boost. I bet that truck will be under 5,000 lbs by a little bit. If I had to guess I always remembered the old 1/2 ton trucks weighed around 5,500 lbs. Ford advertised a 700 lb. weight reduction with the aluminum body. That means most F-150 trucks should weigh a tiny bit under 5,000lbs. Get a Lariat trim with the 2.7, I bet that is a few hundred lbs under 5,000 lbs. It will come with alot of safety features.

The 2.7 weighs 40 pounds less than the 3.5.

The new Ford Maverick comes in at just a little less than 4,000 pounds curb weight, the Chevy Colorado comes in at about 4,500 lb curb weight the Tacoma comes in at approximately the $4,500 lb these are approximate values depending upon what you get and what add-ons you put on them the Ford Ranger comes in at around $4,700 lb. As far as adding a truck camper or cap you're going to go over your weights on just about anything I think. You would have to check into it more.

Thanks guys,

No longer need slide in camper capability so that's good.

Ford Ranger has adaptive cruise, lane keeping assist, cross traffic assist, lane change notification and emergency braking. Weve been towing ours for over two years and its been a great rig.

So let's see. Lower TC jacks, drive truck to dealer for warranty work. Reverse.
