When it comes to earth-moving productivity and performance, Ford’s Super Duty line of pickup trucks are among the most capable.

What’s New on the 2018 Ford Super Duty?

Having been redesigned for 2017 and featuring an all-new aluminum body and fully-boxed steel frame, the 2018 Ford Super Duty carries over a lot of what made the 2017 model such a dynamo. New for 2018, drivers can select a luxurious Limited trim level, which provides amenities like a premium leather interior, special grille, standard moonroof, custom Limited trim badging and more.

Small refinements to the 2018 Ford Super Duty see it make small, but important gains in horsepower (+10 hp), torque (+10 lb-ft.), towing capability (1500 lbs. for F-450 4X4) and efficiency.
