Ford Super Duty: Tow Big or Go Home

Written by  Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited on Wednesday, 23 January 2019 14:59

You don’t step into the 2018 Ford Super Duty, you step up to it.

An absolute beast of a truck, it’s designed to challenge the laws of physics – outworking, outmuscling and out-towing the competition. No matter how tough your task…this truck has your name on it.

Depend on the 2018 Super Duty to get the job done, and then some.

It starts with a newly-upgraded 6.7-litre Power Stroke V-8 diesel engine offering best-in-class* 450 horsepower and 935 ft-lb of torque – also best in class.

Super Duty continues as the heavy-duty champ, owning key capability claims in the segment including: horsepower, torque, gooseneck towing, conventional towing and payload.

You’ll get best-in-class^ towing with a maximum gooseneck towing of 34,000 lbs. and a conventional towing maximum capacity of 21,000 lbs. (capabilities higher than any other heavy-duty pickup).

So if you’re looking to tow big, call on the best.

This truck’s 7,630-lb. maximum payload rating is also best-in-class**. When the Super Duty went to a military grade‡ aluminum alloy bed and body paired with a high strength steel frame, the net weight saving‡‡ went into its frame, leaf springs, trailer hitch, rear axles and transfer case, while also coming out up to 24 times stiffer than the outgoing model. This truck doesn’t buckle to even the heaviest payloads.

The Ford Super Duty is the only heavy-duty truck in its class to offer an available Trailer Reverse Guidance System† to increase its sightlines. Visibility is enhanced via cameras in the side view mirrors and visual guides in the centre dash screen, giving you a clear rear view of where the trailer is going. And with a customer-placed rear trailer camera that seamlessly integrates into the centre stack screen, it turns reversing a trailer from an exercise in futility into an exercise in precision.
