The F-Series Super Duty pickup truck weighs less than predecessor trucks, Ford says. Built on an all-new frame that is more than 95 percent steel, it has more towing and hauling capability, the company says, when combined with the heavier duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles and towing hardware.

The body uses an aluminum allow that is more dent- and ding-resistant than the previous body, and helps reduce weight by up to 350 pounds, Ford says.

All-new advanced coaching and camera technology makes conventional and gooseneck/fifth-wheel towing easier and more efficient than ever. Blind Spot Information System with trailer tow is optimized for Super Duty to include the length of the trailer; BLIS uses radar sensors in the taillamps to monitor areas that may not be visible to the driver, Ford says.

The second-generation Ford-designed, Ford-built 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine is available for pickup trucks and chassis cabs. The 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine comes equipped with the new TorqShift-G transmission for the F-250 pickup. The Super Duty chassis cab lineup offers a choice of 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel, 6.8-liter V10 gasoline or 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engines.
