New Ford F-Series Super Duty sets 2013 benchmark for workhorse pickups
This is a continuation of the brand’s efforts to improve the F-Series for 2013, by raising the bar for towing, hauling and braking to again raise the standards for heavy-duty trucks.
"Super Duty pickups and chassis cabs are the segment benchmarks, chosen by tradesmen more than any other heavy-duty truck to get the job done," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. "To help our customers continue to become more productive and efficient, we've increased our towing and payload capability yet again."
Towing and payload capacities
Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks are built to suit the needs of the hardest working customers. With that in mind, engineers for the brand have boosted the conventional towing capacity of 9 tons by 500 pounds over the nearest competitor to18,500 pounds.
The payload capacity has been boosted over 3.5 tons to 7,260 pounds to compliment the increased class-leading towing ability.
