For 2015, Ford F-Series Super Duty pickups get a few significant upgrades. Most importantly, a new 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel boosts output to a best-in-class 440 horsepower, with torque rated at 860 ft-lb, thanks in part to a larger turbocharger. The F-450 now rides on standard 19.5-inch wheels, with a sturdier chassis now capable of towing up to 31,200 pounds with a gooseneck hitch and 26,500 with a fifth-wheel, while the F-350 tow ratings are also improved, to 26,500 pounds for both gooseneck and fifth-wheel applications.
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. Best of all, inside, these workhorses are actually quite comfortable -- even luxurious in some cases. Ford boasts that its new 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine is the most powerful diesel pickup engine on the market and that the Super Duty F-350 (dual rear wheel) model has an impressive tow rating of 26,500 pounds.
