Overview
Americans love their trucks, and it only takes a quick glance at the spec sheet of the Ford F-series Super Duty to see why. For 2012, Ford beefed up the frame and hitch of its F-series Super Duty so that it can once again claim the top spot in the towing-capacity war it has been waging with its rivals. Available with a choice of two engines (a capable 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 and a heroic 6.7-liter turbo-diesel with a massive 800 lb-ft of torque); regular cab, SuperCab, or SuperCrew bodies; 6.8-foot or 8.0-foot beds; and single or dual rear wheels, the Super Duty offers a vast range of configurations. A couple of safety features have been added this year, with traction and stability control now standard on all single-rear-wheel models and side and side curtain air bags standard across the lineup. Another useful feature is a trailer-sway control system, which can determine from the motion of the truck when the trailer is swaying and take measures (reducing engine torque, applying braking) to help keep the trailer from wagging. The interior of the Ford Super Duty is very functional thanks to the upgrade it received last year that gave it a larger console and increased the available storage space by 60 percent. The Super Duty has several luxury features that you might not expect to find in a work truck, including a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and dual climate controls.
