Mileage is really a crap shoot rather or not it will be good or bad. The pricing of an early-release 2008 Ford Super Duty is fully competitive with what Chevrolet and Dodge are marketing for the 2007 model year. Those intending to tow with their Super Duty trucks will appreciate Ford's factory-installed TowCommand System. The F350 has a 5,720 pound payload capacity and an 18,700 pound towing capacity. Still trying to decide if I want a tune for a little more something something.
Functional enhancements include a foldable bed extender, which improves load utility when in place and stays out of the way when not needed. Tune wise , It is worth it, from tip in to 4000 rpms more torque. Ford offers three engine choices for work, play or any combination of the two. We are really easy to work with, if you had tunes from us and are not fully happy with service and tunes we would just refund 100% of your money back. As noted, the Super Duty order form provides a wealth of choices for virtually any commercial or recreational use. We'll start at the front, where Ford has located a front step bumper - under-the-hood checks are made easier when the step-stool is built-in and not something you need to carry with you. Better cooling means, of course, bigger towing.
Constituting both interior Chaparral leather and exterior PowerScope mirrors upgrades, the King Ranch enhances over-the-road comfort with material, workmanship and appointment upgrades, adding immeasurably to the Super Duty's attractiveness. The F-250 and the F-350 come standard with a 5. But now Ford has created a diesel offering more power 350 horsepower and torque 650 pound-feet , along with a cleaner burn, quieter operation and better throttle response via dual sequential turbos. Wish I could afford something so new. Good luck with which one y'all go with. The expansive grille is for more than simply show - it fronts a confluence of cooling capability for engine, transmission and the intercooler that serves the diesel's two sequential turbochargers.
The 2008 Ford F-250, 350 and 450 Super Dutys are heavy duty pickup trucks. Given the importance of towing capability to the Super Duty mission, the receiver is a standard feature any owner can appreciate. The F250 has a 3,170 pound payload capacity and a 12,500 pound towing capacity. If he rarely drives it with a trailer, and most of his miles will be empty then I think a simple test drive of a V-10 will tell him more than we ever can. Now I know I don't drive as fast as others on here, but terrain also might be more harsh then what they are dealing with as well. To be sure, both Extended and Crew Cabs accommodate passengers quite comfortably, but if you're not regularly hooking up to a 10,000-pound trailer or loading an eight-foot bed with more than a couple of two-by-fours, you've overbought what Ford has overbuilt.
In a year in which the big news - both literally and figuratively - was presumably focused on Toyota's launch of its new Tundra, Ford arguably trumps Toyota's thunder with its debut of an all-new Super Duty. Bottomline is there are too many variables that are being dealt with to really apply that to someone else. And with the premium price for diesel right now the sticker shock at the pump will be lower. Beyond the imposing edifice are new fender-mounted vents, available telescoping mirrors and optional 20-inch forged aluminum wheels. Vehicle Details With the debut of the current F-Series, Ford established a benchmark for pickup interiors. Enjoyed reading your post on towing with your V10. Either engine will get the job done for him.
And for those venturing off into the Great Unknown, an optional navigation system should get you there and - hopefully - back again. In back Ford includes a hitch receiver - matched to each model's capabilities - on every Super Duty, along with seven-pin and four-pin connectors. Is it really beneficial for something that is already pushing the power it is? Check the V10 forum, you'd be surprised how many diesel owners are now happy V10 owners. The F450 can tow a best-in-class 24,500 pounds and haul up to 5,720 pounds. Accessing the bed is made easier - and safer - by the why-didn't-they-think-of-this-before tailgate step option.
Just something that is worth mentioning, but not soming that needs to be dwelled upon. As to what goes on in the v10 forums, I could probably find the same amount that would support the other way. In the new Super Duty the benchmark is moved upward in available choices, functionality and appointment. Take the test drive and let him make up his own mind. The v10 will do the job for you, but coming from a diesel it's hard to make the switch. I know people that are getting a little better mileage then I get with the 6.
Lower in the rpm band is fine for regular driving, but based on my dealings with it while towing, you had to keep it high, much different then my diesel, I could keep it down to 2k on it would just be humming along at 70 mph only when I was really stressing the diesel did she hit 3700, but even then she handled it well, just was screaming at me for putting her thru that. My personal experience with my stang taught me this. Keep us updated on the refining. Power Stroke Diesel With its 6. . Base powerplant is a 5.
We are running tunes in it now hoping to refine the 08+ models a little more. Depends a lot on for what he'll use it. A walk-around with Ford's head of truck design, Pat Schiavone, begins with the grille. Depending on the configuration of their cabs, the Ford Super Duty trucks can hold between two and five people. I don't see what everyone is seeing on their 6. One thing on the v10 while it's a good engine you will have to let it revv up much higher then you are used to with the diesel and some don't like to do that I know I didn't when I had to borrow a gas burner while my truck was being worked on and some either go back to a diesel or always regret having gone to the gas but can't afford to go back to the diesel.
