Ford's commercial-oriented Super-Duty trucks pick up a number of additional features that make it even more useful to those who work hard hauling cargo or towing large trailers. The Super Duty's first factory-installed fifth-wheel and gooseneck towing substructure--for some of the heaviest towing needs-has been expanded to trucks with the 6.75-foot cargo box for 2012 and include an electrical connection on the bed side wall. A compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane option for the 6.2L gasoline engine are also new for 2012.
Flexibility for commercial use; tougher than standard full-size trucks; class-leading tow ratings; Power Stroke diesel's 800 pound-feet of torque; full roster of safety features
The F-Series Super Duty trucks bear a resemblance to the ubiquitous, jack-of-all-trades F-150 pickups, but these models have an especially pure purpose: to reliably, safely and confidently haul heavy loads or heavy trailers, day after day. What's surprising is that these workhorses are actually quite comfortable--and almost luxurious--inside. Ford boasts that the PowerStroke diesel engine is the most powerful diesel pickup engine on the market and that the Super Duty F-350 DRW (dual rear wheel) model has a best-in-class payload (7,110 pounds) and fifth-wheel tow rating (22,700), as well as a best-in-class conventional tow rating of 17,500 pounds.
