’18 Ford Su­per Duty—more Horse­power, More Torque, More Tow­ing

Four Wheeler - - Rpm -

If we got a dol­lar for ev­ery time Ford an­nounced that the Su­per Duty was “Amer­ica’s most pow­er­ful, most ca­pa­ble heavy-duty pickup,” we’d prob­a­bly get a dol­lar ev­ery year. But the truck does keep get­ting im­prove­ments an­nu­ally to al­low those brags. Case in point: The ’18 Su­per Duty has an up­graded 6.7L Power Stroke diesel for 450 horses and 935 lb-ft of torque (both of those are up by 10 over 2017 num­bers), plus 21,000-pound con­ven­tional hitch tow­ing, 7,630-pound pay­load ca­pac­ity, and 34,000-pound goose­neck tow­ing (which Ford says is a 1,500-pound im­prove­ment on the F-450 4x2—speak­ing of 4x2s, the F-450 gets one in crew cab form for 2018).
