Ford F-Series Super Duty has been overhauled for the 2008 model year, and the lineup has been expanded with the new F-450 pickup. The super-sized F-450 offers a maximum payload of more than 6,000 pounds and towing capacity of more than 24,000 pounds – a 5,000-pound increase over the class-leading F-350.
The F-450 combines the right axle, right powertrain, and right suspension to manage the loads of pulling a heavier trailer while maintaining a comfortable ride. It rides on its own unique chassis and incorporates a new rear leaf-spring suspension while using the radius arm front suspension from the F-450 chassis cab. This set-up provides for the tightest turning radius in its class, greatly improving maneuverability when towing.
Offered in three cab styles – Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab – and with two bed lengths, the new Super Duty will feature redesigned interior and exterior, an all-new 6.4-liter Power Stroke Diesel, Tailgate Step and stowable bed extender, PowerScope power-telescoping mirrors, and available TowCommand System.
