When you’re looking for a new car, truck, or SUV, every model has a variety of available trim levels. You may be looking for the SE, SEL, XLT, Limited, Sport, Raptor, or some other version of the model you’ve chosen. Often, when drivers head into Folsom Lake Ford on the hunt for a new pickup truck, they assume that “Ford Super Duty®” is just one more available trim level. But in reality, it’s a whole different class of truck.
The Ford Super Duty lineup includes the Ford F-250, Ford F-350, and Ford F-450. No matter which trim level you choose, these are the Ford Super Duty trucks, and they are a force to be reckoned with. In their review of the 2018 Ford Super Duty lineup, Car and Driver got right to the point: “The ultimate heavy-duty pickup on the planet. Period.”
So just what sets these powerhouse pickups apart? First, there’s the best-in-class 7,630-lb. maximum payload and 21,000-lb. conventional tow ratings. But what if your job isn’t conventional? Don’t worry, the Ford Super Duty lineup has you covered with its maximum 27,500-lb. 5th-wheel or best-in-class 34,000-lb. gooseneck tow rating.
Under the hood, you can rely on the 6.2L gas V8 engine to deliver best-in-class gas torque. And there’s always the available Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V8 engine, the class leader in both horsepower and torque.
These trucks are built to work, and they’re designed by engineers who know what it takes to get the job done and get it done well. The available class-exclusive Trailer Reverse Guidance technology is evidence of their dedication. Cameras in the sideview mirrors and visual guides in the center dash screen give you a clear view, digitally expanding the image on your screen to show the direction of the truck and the trailer.
While it may not be a Ford Super Duty truck, the 2018 Ford F-150 is still a superb workhouse of a pickup. Test drive it, or any of the Ford Super Duty trucks here at Folsom Lake Ford near Roseville, CA.
