2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty

WORKHORSEBase Price: $28,020  When there’s a heavy load to move—and move quickly— few vehicles will do  it better than Ford’s new Super Duty pickups. The heart of a truck is  its powerplant, and the top choice for these rigs is the new 6.7-liter  diesel V8 that cranks out 400 hp and a pavement wrinkling 800 lb-ft of  torque. That’s more grunt than any other pickup or passenger vehicle  sold in North America. Indeed, an F-350 dually can handle over 7000  pounds in its bed and tow more than 22,000 pounds with a fifth-wheel  hitch. When the road gets muddy, there’s a solid axle at each end of a  4WD Super Duty’s chassis—and an optional electronic locking rear  differential to split power equally to the rear wheels. The new Super  Duty is exceedingly capable on the job site, but it was the truck’s  docile road manners that helped it win our heavy-duty pickup truck  comparison test (Nov. ‘10). For 2011, the suspension was reconfigured to  use fewer leaf springs in the back, which helps these massive trucks  soak up the bumps like an F-150, and the light steering effort eases  trailer backups. The Super Duty continues Ford’s use of pioneering and  smart options, like power-extendable towing mirrors, flip-up rear seats  and an innovative productivity screen, that make the dirtiest jobs seem  almost, well, fun.
