The Ford Super Duty Is Built to Work Hard

Super Duty trucks are a series of full-sized pickups engineered by Ford. The F-250, the F-350, the F-450, and all of their respective trims make up the Super Duty line. Drivers around Arlington Heights and Schaumburg interested in taking a Super Duty truck for a test drive should stop by Arlington Heights Ford.

These trucks are called "Super Duty" for a reason. As some of the toughest working trucks available in America, they play a crucial role in helping people with a big work projects and recreation needs. Here's a brief look at the history of the Super Duty lineup and what the current models have to offer.

History of the Super Duty

The F-Series had been around since 1948, and the F-250 and F-350 designations have existed since 1953. However, the name Super Duty wasn't applied until 1999. Before that, the 250 and the 350 were labeled as Heavy Duty.

The Super Duty line has distinct mechanical and cosmetic differences from the traditional F-150. The Super Duty look is more aggressive, and the drivetrain is more suited for heavy carrying and hauling tasks. Three different cab options were also made available over time: a Standard Cab that seats two to three passengers, and a Crew Cab and Super Cab that each seat 5 to 6 passengers.

The Current Super Duty

The Super Duty badge means power, which is why these trucks come standard with a 6.2L V8 engine and a tough TorqShift Heavy Duty six-speed transmission. The 6.2L option has the power to churn out a respectable 400 lb-ft of torque. Drivers really looking to unlock the Super Duty's full potential can upgrade to a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine.
