Ford has made upgrades across the board for its 2018 Super Duty, and now claims it is best-in-class in areas such as horsepower, torque, towing, and payload.

It now produces 450 hp and 935 lb.-ft. of torque which is an increase of 10 hp and 10 lb.-ft., respectively. It also offers 21,000-pounds of conventional hitch towing and a 7,360-pound payload capacity, Ford said in a release. The newly upgraded F-Series 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine was redesigned to improve its capabilities in these key areas. 

Furthermore, Ford announced an F-450 4x2 Crew Cab dual-rear-wheel pickup to the Super Duty lineup, which offers a 34,000-pound of gooseneck towing capacity, which is a 1,500-pound improvement for the new 4x2 model. Ford said that this Super duty is available to both retail and fleet customers.

Upgrades to the 2018 Ford 6.7L Power Stroke engine include redesigned cylinder heads for added strength under higher loads, plus optimized fuel and turbo boost calibrations to take advantage of the increased cylinder head capacity for increased horsepower and torque, Ford said in a release.

The 2018 Super Duty F-450 4x2 dual-rear-wheel pickup will be available this winter in XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum series offerings. Base MSRP is $52,830, which includes $1,295 destination and delivery charges, according to the automaker.
