Just what is a "Super Duty" truck?

The term "Super Duty" has been given to a line of trucks that are considered heavy duty. Where Ford trucks are concerned, the Super Duty (heavy duty) trucks begin at the F-250 truck and go all the way to the F-550 and F-650 commercial trucks. Let's look at the truck and its weight:

  • F-250 - three-quarter-ton truck
  • F-350 - one-ton truck
  • F-450 - weighs in at over 7,000 pounds and is considered a commercial truck
  • F-550 - tonnage depends upon whether the truck is a full-size or a chassis cab
  • F-650 - typically just a chassis cab and a commercial vehicle

So, simply put, the Super Duty is a heavy-duty, full-size truck that weighs over three-quarters of a ton. It is highly adept at hauling cargo and towing a heavy payload (exact payloads depend upon the truck you choose).

Now that you know what makes a Super Duty a Super Duty, let's look at the performance, safety, and other fine features of this superior line of trucks.


The Ford Super Duty is typically outfitted with one of two engines: an EcoBoost gasoline engine or a Power Stroke diesel engine. The F-250 and F-350 Super Duty will usually be outfitted with a V8 engine. (For the F-250, this is a 6.2-liter EcoBoost V8 or a 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine.)

The F-450 offers a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel V8 engine that provides up to 475 horsepower and an amazing 1,050 pound-feet of torque.

The F-550 is outfitted with one of two engines:

  • a 6.8-liter V10 gasoline engine (standard)
  • a 6.7-liter Power Stroke v8 turbo diesel engine

You'll find that these engines provide over 280 horsepower as well as 424 pound-feet of torque to tow almost anything you want around Delano. The F-650 is equipped with an in-line six-cylinder gasoline engine that offers up to 360 horses under the hood. If you need a work truck that offers the ability to haul a great amount of cargo and tow virtually any load around Tulare, the Ford line of Super Duty trucks has something for you.



Ford has always been a leader in the automotive world, but even loyal Ford fans are impressed by the standard safety features the Super Duty line of trucks provides.

All Ford Super Duty trucks are equipped with the Ford CoPilot 360 safety system. With this package, you'll have access to the following:

  • BLIS (blind spot monitoring)
  • lane-keeping assist
  • lane-departure warnings
  • rear cameras
  • forward-collision prevention
  • automatic braking

The Ford CoPilot 360 safety system is meant to be your eyes and ears and prevent accidents all over Lindsay and beyond. Again, the aforementioned amenities are included on all Ford trucks, but some trim packages allow for added features. Optional towing packages may allow for the addition of driver-assisted features that make hooking to a trailer and towing easier and safer.


The F-250 and F-350 offer the same trim packages: the XL, the XLT, the Lariat, the King Ranch, and the Platinum. The XL is the "work truck" trim package that offers vinyl seats and floors; the Platinum is the top trim level that offers every amenity you can imagine plus heated and cooled leather seats and a chrome exterior. The Lariat is a "middle of the road" trim that offers practicality and luxury.
