Ford's commercial-oriented Super-Duty trucks return for 2013 with plenty of small changes. Among them is an improved braking system, including a larger parking brake and bigger front and rear brake rotors. The gross vehicle weight rating has increased to a class-leading 14,000 pounds. Other changes include the addition of a new Platinum series model, which features a perforated mesh grille with satin chrome surround and other exterior touches, while inside you'll find premium wood grain surfaces, a heated leather steering wheel and more.

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, best-selling F-150 pickups. These Super Duty models are made to serve 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 their 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.
