BUILT FORD TOUGH® It’s not just a slogan, it’s an attitude. One that has produced some of the strongest and most dependable pickups for decades. It’s this attitude that leads Super Duty® trucks to stand out from the competition. It takes a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body60 combined with a frame made of high-strength steel. And now features the most powerful engine ever offered in a Super Duty,* the impressively strong 500 horsepower 6.7L High-Output Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine cranking out 1,200 lb.-ft. of torque. * Super Duty. It’s BUILT FORD TOUGH®.
How are Super Duty® trucks tested? We torture test every Ford Super Duty, including running the truck around the clock carrying the most extreme payloads, towing the heaviest trailer weights, through the most extreme kinds of environmental conditions, using dynamometers, test tracks and public roads. Because the testing surfaces and durability test tracks are so punishing, many of the miles are run using robot drivers that can handle the abuse better than humans to ensure every F-Series® truck is absolutely BUILT FORD TOUGH®.
The Super Duty® pickup is built with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body. Aluminum alloy is lighter than steel, yet it’s remarkably strong. It’s also less subject to rust.
The 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel incorporates a driver-activated engine-exhaust brake. It restricts the turbocharger’s exhaust flow to generate back pressure and slow the vehicle, providing reduced need for friction brakes while travelling downhill, regardless of vehicle load or road grade. Also, because the engine brake helps minimize having to apply pedal pressure, brake fade and lining wear are reduced. Three settings are available: On, Off and Auto. The Auto setting modulates engine braking as needed to help maintain the speed you want based on accelerator and brake pedal use.
