2018 Ford F-450 Towing Capacity is Better Than You Think

2018 Ford F-450 Towing Capacity is Better Than You Think

640 × 480

Ford released the specs for the 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty last week and it makes for great reading. Given how truck owners are all about the numbers, especially when you go heavy duty, we think next years’ trucks are going to deliver on every count.


Ford said the 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty will offer the highest power figures and can town the most of all trucks in its class. Offering 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque from the 6.7-litre Powerstroke diesel, the truck now has more power than General Motors or Ram.


The ability to tow up to 34,000 pounds in 4x2 configuration means the truck can tow more than any other right now too.


That is likely to change as other automakers release competing trucks that will inevitably try to outdo the Ford. In the meantime, the 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty is top dog.


2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty

The 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty is a truck built for work. Sure you could use it as your daily commuter or for the school run but it has been designed from the ground up to haul, tow or carry.


Built only as a crew cab with dual rear wheels, it’s a long, wide truck that can be as utilitarian or as luxurious as you like. As with all Ford trucks, the configuration options are wide as they are varied and will allow you to configure yours to fit your exact requirements.


The design is a familiar one as it doesn’t differ from the conventional much. It has been updated to reflect change though as shown in the grille and headlight configuration. Otherwise, the truck is a utilitarian design that is modern in its implementation.


Inside, the cabin is very spacious, with over 136 cu-ft of space. The cabin can be kept rugged with tough vinyl seating and hard plastics or made luxurious with lots of soft touch materials and tons of leather. Either way, visibility is excellent, the driving position comfortable and you are well looked after while inside.


That 6.7-litre Powerstroke diesel engine is plenty enough to power the truck whether hauling or towing. The huge 935 lb-ft of torque will ensure you always get where you need to go safely and efficiently.


Despite its size, the 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty is surprisingly easy to manoeuvre. It doesn’t have a huge turning circle and is confident around town as it is on the highway or light off road.
