Thumbs up Throughbred of Trucks

2011 Ford Super Duty Pickup

Haul heavy loads up steep embankments (with engine speeds as low as 900 rpm) with Ford's completely new TorqShift six-speed transmission. Then use the hill descent feature to maintain a safe speed when going downhill.

Tow really heavy rigs with the Ford Super Duty Pickup and tow up to a whopping 24,400 lbs. (with fifth-wheel trailer),
Choose the Ford F-450 Super Duty Pickup

In 2011, Ford kicked its entire Super Duty Pickup truck series (F-250, 350 and 450) into high gear with major leaps in engine, transmission and electronics technologies. The new 6.7-liter V-8 turbocharged diesel engine is a total redesign of the old engine. Ford fabricated the engine from compacted graphite iron for reduced weight and maximum strength. The twin turbochargers are gone, replaced with a single turbocharger that spins two compressor wheels. The new design reduces turbo lag and gives much faster response when you put the pedal to the metal. The end result is a power plant that puts out 390 hp (40 more hp than the older engine).

The Super Duty also includes the completely new TorqShift six-speed transmission. Every component in this baby is designed to pull heavy loads. In fact, the specially designed torque converter damper lets you lug heavy loads with engine speeds as low as 900 rpm. That would toast most other transmissions. With its more powerful engine, this rig can tow a whopping 24,400 lbs. (F-450 with fifth-wheel trailer).

On the electronics end, Ford dishes up tons of features like trailer sway control, integrated trailer brake control and a tow-haul mode that modifies transmission shift points to provide maximum power while towing. The hill start assist system prevents the truck (and those heavy loads) from rolling backward or forward when you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator. And just set the hill descent control to your desired speed and the system automatically keeps the rig at that speed without applying the brakes.

Prices start at $35,855 for the F-250 (less with the 6.2-liter gas engine).

Who’s this for? Whether you’re hauling construction materials, a large boat or a HORSE trailer, the Super Duty does the job without breaking a sweat.

The 6.7 PSD is quiet, smooth, and incredibly powerful. I have been averaging around 18 MPG back and forth to work, and about 13 - 14 mpg towing 8000 Lbs.

The tranny has positive but not harsh shifts, the lock up at low RPM's works very well. When towing from Ringgold Ga to Manchester TN for Bonnaroo, I only down shifted for power one time one gear while towing up Mounteagle Mountain, going down the other side down shifted two gears, both times maintaining 60 MPH. The really cool thing is, it all happens without me having to think about it.
