Ford's F-Series Super Duty Is the Best at Everything
For years, the Ford F-Series Super Duty has been the go-to truck that has helped this country’s workers get things done. Through the years, it has taken many best-in-class accolades, and truck shoppers have responded by making it one of the best-selling trucks on the market. However, after the launch of the all-new aluminum F-150 lineup, the question then became, could Ford pull off the same brilliant engineering in the new Super Duty? The short answer being, yes it can.

According to Ford, the new F-Series Super Duty lineup is the “toughest, smartest, and most capable yet,” and honestly, seeing the laundry list of things Ford has built these trucks to handle, we can’t exactly argue.
Not only do the new trucks receive the same military-grade aluminum body with a “fully boxed high-strength steel frame,” but every piece on these trucks have been strengthened to put up with the torture tests from “Ford’s most demanding customers.”

Because of the multitude of improvements, the new Super Duty series received, and stay with us because it’s a long list; best-in-class max 5th wheel towing, best-in-class max conventional towing, best-in-class max payload, best-in-class diesel torque and horsepower, best-in-class diesel fuel economy and range, best-in-class 6.2L gas engine torque and fuel economy, and best-in-class chassis cab GCWR, towing, front GAWR, and unsurpassed diesel torque. And breathe.
Not only has Ford made these trucks more robust, but the company has made them smarter as well. The new Super Duty lineup has available 360-degree cameras, dynamic trailer backup lines, a trailer assist and camera, an improved lane departure warning system, and the same type of adaptive cruise control you’d find on an S-Class Mercedes.

Over the years, Ford has become synonymous with work trucks, and as long as it gets the job done, their customers are happy. The new Super Duty lineup is the first major redesign for the lineup in quite some time. This should have contractors looking to be the first at their job site with a new F-250 or F-350.
No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to bring you that information as it becomes available, hopefully followed by a review of the truck. The new Super Duty is expected to hit dealers next year.
