The 2018 Ford Super Duty
The King of Work
The 2018 Ford Super Duty is the king of work. Not only does it lead the industry in all of the categories that matter to heavy duty truck owners, it does it with style. Here’s a quick look at what makes the 2018 Super Duty the right truck for you and your business.
The Best in Class
The Ford Super Duty is the best heavy duty pickup. You don’t have to take my word for it. Just look at the numbers. It offers the best-in-class performance in the categories that matter most to heavy duty pickup drivers.
- 450 horsepower (up 10 horsepower improvement over 2017)
- 935 lb.-ft. of torque (up 10 lb.-ft. from 2017)
- 34,000-pound of gooseneck towing (up 1,500-pounds)
- 21,000-pound conventional towing
- 7,630-pound payload capacity
What’s the secret to all those outstanding numbers?
Formula for Success
A few years ago, Ford switched from using steel to military-grade aluminum in the bodies of F-Series trucks. In doing so, Ford greatly reduced the weight of its trucks while maintaining the characteristic “Built Ford Tough” strength that has made the F-Series the best-selling lineup of vehicles in Canada. Ford is able to reinvest those weight-savings elsewhere, creating greater balance.
Further, Ford is the only heavy-duty truck manufacturer that builds its own transmission and engine combinations. Competitors shoehorn third-party components into their own designs and the performance suffers. That’s not the case with Ford. Each Super Duty transmission was engineered to work in perfect accord with its powerplant. And the result is peak performance and efficiency, which is exactly what you need when you get to work.
Of course, one of the biggest factors behind the 2018 Super Duty’s outstanding performance is its exceptional engines.
Super Duty Engines
2018 Super Duty drivers get a choice of two remarkable engines. First is the 6.7L Power Stroke turbo diesel which has been reengineered to deliver more power more effectively. The result is 450 horsepower and 935 lb.-ft. of torque – both best-in-class numbers. The second is a 6.2L gasoline-powered V8. Its 430 lb.-ft. of torque is also the best among gas-powered heavy duty pickups.No matter which engine you choose, you get unrivalled performance for tackling the hardest jobs.
It’s pretty simple: if you want to haul the most and tow the most without breaking a sweat, you want the 2018 Ford Super Duty. Oh, and we haven’t even mentioned the style, comfort, and convenience that spread across the F-Series lineup.
Although performance is the greatest criterion for influencing heavy duty purchasing decisions, comfort and convenience can help distinguish between a good truck and a great truck. And you’ll find no shortage of standout amenities in the 2018 Super Duty.
Drivers of new vehicles basically expect things like heated and cooled seats now. So, it’s no surprise that they’re available in the 2018 Super Duty. But the standard of quality present in King Ranch and two-tone Limited leathers is far from expected. In the higher trim levels, Ford’s heavy duty trucks can comfortably go up against any luxury vehicle with features like premium Sony Audio, SYNC 3, power deployable steps, and heated steering wheels.
Super Duty Limited
Plus, for the first time ever, Ford is preparing to offer a Limited trim level on their largest trucks. The 2018 Super Duty Limited will combine the very best in rugged performance and the very best in luxury. Advanced safety technology like 360-degree camera, BLIS, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping system all comes standard. Inside, drivers will find heated and cooled two-tone leather seats, power adjustable pedals, colour-matched cloth headliner, and finely carpeted floor mats.
Ford’s 2018 Super Duty delivers uncompromising performance as a standard. But drivers also get the very best in comfort, technology, and convenience. If you’ve been looking for the best heavy duty truck, you’ve found it. What are you waiting for? Get to work!
