Find the Right Might for "Super Duty" in the 2018 Ford F-250

Although the impressive F-150 we just wrote about will cover the needs of most full-size truck buyers, the segment of mountain-movers that the Blue Oval's "Super Duty" lineup embodies have advantages of their own. Of particular interest to those who need more grunt than a half-ton offers is the 2018 Ford F-250. Wearing aluminum over high-strength steel like it's siblings, this state-of-the-art truck is here to do more than move obstacles--but own them.


As previous or current owners may be aware, the Ford Super Duty lineup differs from rivals in that it technically consists of three trucks, of which the F-250 is the entry point. All boast the same powertrain lineup, and basic equipment lists, but differ in size and weight-class. In the case of the F-250 Super Duty, it can be configured in three cab styles and two bed lengths, and between five trim levels.


The two engines we mentioned are legends in their respective competitive sets. The gasoline 6.2-liter V8 is rated for 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque, where the grittier 6.7-liter Powerstroke Turbodiesel V8 holds fast with 440 horsepower and 925 lb-ft of torque--translating into the following capability ratings:

  • 18,000 lbs. maximum conventional towing.
  • 18,500 lbs. maximum 5th-wheel/gooseneck towing.
  • 4,200 lbs. maximum payload.

If those like earth-moving numbers, just you wait until you hear what else the F-250 Super Duty has in store! Not only will you find the rugged amenities to help you relax at the end of a long day--such as SYNC3 infotainment and on-board Wifi availability--but equipment to get the job done quicker. Ask your sales representative about the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera system, towing and snow plow prep packages, or any other feature that you consider a "must have" on such a truck.


Moving mountains on your terms is a cinch--especially with such advanced, formidable trucks before you!
