Ford Super Duty Trucks are The Best

Ford Super Duty Trucks are the most capable work truck, and here's why.

Ford has long been a trusted name in the work truck industry. Since 1903, Ford has manufactured quality work trucks designed to handle the rigors of even the toughest of jobs. In fact, Ford is one of the top providers of light-, medium-, and super-duty truck options, each truck designed to offer reliable service year after year. With the Ford Super Duty truck, this legacy lives on. Whether you opt for the F250, F350, F450, F550, or F600, this work truck has been designed to provide you with lasting service. From the basics to the finest details, today, we’ll take a look at the top 10 reasons why the Ford Super Duty is the ultimate work truck.

1. Towing and Payload Capacity

The Ford Super Duty features the best maximum available gas conventional towing rating in its class at 21,000 pounds. Additionally, for those who opt for the diesel engine, the Ford Super Duty also wins with the best maximum available towing rating at 24,200 pounds. This towing capacity is higher than any other light-duty pickup truck. The Ford Super Duty also features a 37,000-pound gooseneck tow rating with the best maximum available 32,500-pound fifth-wheel tow rating in its class. The Super Duty gooseneck and fifth-wheel substructure are actually attached to the frame, offering superior durability.

2. Lightweight but Strong Frame & Chassis

When your job calls you to go on difficult-to-maneuver roads and rough worksites, the lightweight but strong frame and chassis of the Ford Super Duty is the ultimate win. This rugged, fully-boxed frame was designed with high-strength, military-grade, steel alloy. The heavy-duty axle, suspension, and drive train add to the truck’s durability. Additionally, a factory-installed weight-carrying hitch has been built into the frame of the truck, allowing this truck to earn top numbers in every single category of hauling and towing.

3. Industry-Leading Diesel & Gas Engines and Transmissions

When it comes to a work truck, a vehicle is only as good as the engine and transmission that power it. This is really where Ford shines. The Super Duty features a powerful lineup of available engines. Choose from the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel with 1,050 pound-feet of torque, or opt for the capable 7.3L gas V8 with the best gas power ratings in its class. The Super Duty base transmission is a six-speed automatic, but most of the latest Super Duties feature a 10-speed automatic gearbox. These powerful transmissions are the perfect pairing for the beastly engines Ford is serving up.

4. Numerous Trim Options

In addition to having your choice of engines, the Ford Super Duty is available in numerous trim options:

  • XL
  • XLT
  • Lariat
  • King Ranch
  • Platinum
  • Limited

From massaging seats, wireless charging docks, and upscale lighting options, each upgraded trim package takes luxury to the next level.

5. Superior Interior Comfort

When you are hard at work, sometimes it is the smallest amenities that bring you the most comfort. Ford designed an interior cab aimed at making your long day a little more relaxing. Leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone climate control, and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo are just a few of the interior amenities that will make your workday more enjoyable.

6. Cargo Space for Real Hauls

Depending on your needs, you can pick between two bed sizes, a 6.75-foot box or an 8-foot box. In addition to the standard cargo space options, you can also choose to upfit a larger cargo space onto the Super Duty body.

7. Ford Telematics

When it comes to fleet management, Ford is leading the way in on-board technology. Ford Telematics lets you monitor vehicles in real time, understanding exactly where they are going, how they are used, and how they run. Live GPS tracking makes it easier to know which driver is closest to the next call. Detailed reporting on driving history will outline driver movements and behaviors, allowing you to better audit routes and maximize fleet performance.

8. The Latest in On-Board Technology & Safety

Beyond just Ford Telematics, the Ford Super Duty is equipped with the latest and best in technology options:

  • A Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing work teams to stay connected on the go
  • Sync 4, a voice recognition, cloud-based system that can integrate with your smartphone
  • Upgraded sound systems
