Come visit us when you're ready to see why Colorado loves the Ford Super Duty trucks. For now, let's take a look at what makes this lineup so special.
Ford has always been known for making great trucks, which leaves many wondering what differentiates a Super Duty model from the rest of the F-Series. There are a few defining qualities that make these quite different from standard pickups. In fact, these qualities are so desirable that Ford has been consistently manufacturing and selling Super Duty trucks since 1999.
To keep things simple, a Super Duty truck is more heavy-duty than a regular pickup. You'll recognize some of these trucks by their more popular name: the F-Series. However, it's important to note that while the F-150 is in the F-series, it is not a Super Duty Truck. Only the F-250, F-350, and F-450 are Super Duty models.
The F-150 is a great truck, but it is more a consumer-targeted truck made for everyday applications. Many even treat it as their regular car that they take to run errands, pick up the kids from school, and drive around town. The Super Duty trucks are more like commercial trucks made for more heavy-duty applications. They have a different chassis than the F-150 and a heavier frame, which results in bigger payloads and greater towing capabilities.
It is important to note that the Super Duty lineup contains both pickup and chassis cab models. Both of these have a front that looks like a regular truck, but the chassis cab models have a different rear. Instead of a standard pickup bed, they have a more basic commercial chassis that is designed to be outfitted with work equipment after purchase. These have a reinforced platform that can handle heavy payloads, making them excellent work trucks.
Let's start with the 2022 Ford F-250, the lightest of the Super Duty lineup. This truck sees a max payload of 4,260 lbs and has a max conventional towing capacity of 20,000 lbs. However, with the addition of a gooseneck or fifth-wheel hitch, it can tow up to 22,800 lbs. Naturally, stability and control become a concern when towing and carrying large loads. That's why the F-250 has the AdvanceTrac system with Roll Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control.
This proprietary system enhances control under uncertain conditions, like when traversing gravel, ice, or snow. It improves traction and makes a large vehicle easier to maneuver. Roll Stability Control reduces the chances of a heavy vehicle rolling over, and Trailer Sway Control involves a special hitch that prevents the trailer from swaying. The 2022 Super Duty trucks also come with driver-assist features that include blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alerts with trailer coverage, and pre-collision assist with automatic braking.
Moving onto the 2022 Ford F-350, this heavy-duty truck enjoys a max payload of 7,850 lbs and can tow up to 21,200 lbs with a conventional hitch. However, you can once again here increase that figure by adding a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch. That will bring the towing capacity up to 35,750 lbs. This truck also features the all-important AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control. Plus, it has the ultimate trailer tow camera system with Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which makes it easier to back a trailer into its designated spot and even helps with getting boats down a dock.
On the inside, drivers can enjoy a B&O Sound 10-speaker sound system, letting you listen to crystal clear tunes, podcasts, audiobooks, and more on the way to a worksite. If you opt for the F-350 Lariat, you can get the sport appearance package with its chrome exhaust tip, painted body-color grille, and other stylish additions.
Finally, the 2022 Ford F-450 is one of the most capable heavy-duty trucks available in America. It can tow up to 24,200 lbs with a conventional trail hitch and up to 37,000 lbs with the addition of a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch. This is a serious working truck. It features an integrated trailer brake controller, which gives the driver enhanced control over the trailer's brakes.
The truck comes standard with a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine––which is only an option on the other Super Duty models––and a 10-speed automatic transmission with selectable drive, which essentially creates a better vehicle response and optimizes control. It can be set to several modes, including normal, slippery, tow/haul, eco, and deep sand/snow, so it's ready for most conditions. This is the truck you'll need if you have to tow heavy loads through the mountainous terrain of Colorado.
As a special touch, the F-450 has the available Admiral Blue and Light slate interior with an attractive light on dark blue upholstery, wood paneling, and aluminum trim. It's finished off with ambient lighting and multi-contoured seats, giving you capability and luxury.
