KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 1/10/2013


Despite the headlines about higher fuel prices and the popularizing of smaller cars, there is still a place for mighty trucks that can perform mighty tasks. Those who drive such vehicles are more apt to be wearing work gloves and overalls than cufflinks and khakis, and almost without question they'll be seated in a vehicle from the domestic Big Three. To this end, the 2013 Ford F-Series Super duty has only three major opponents: the Chevrolet Silverado HD/GMC Sierra HD twins, and the Ram 2500/3500. Like its competitors, the Ford Super Duty offers powerful gasoline or diesel engines that can haul enormous loads. With a vast range of models and tremendous towing and payload capacity, the Super Duty is a truck born for work.

You'll Like This Car If...

Massive power is a given for Ford's brawniest passenger truck, but today's Super Duty trucks also offer plenty of pampering. The new Platinum trim, for example, includes a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, while Ford's Sync infotainment system and 8-inch high-resolution display can help you play hard, too.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you like the image of yourself in a big, tough truck but don't intend to haul anything more than some dirt bikes, a sofa or a small boat, a light-duty truck such as the F-150 starts at a lower price and can save you in fuel costs. If want a manual transmission in your heavy-duty truck, look to a Ram.

What's New for 2013

Braking capability and payload and towing capacity have been increased in what seems a never-ending quest for bragging rights in the heavy-duty truck segment. The 2013 F-Series Super Duty can now conventionally tow up to 18,500 pounds, and has a maximum 5th-wheel trailer tow rating of 24,700 pounds. Also new are the Platinum trim and availability of the Sync infotainment system with MyFord Touch.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Aside from horsepower and torque – both of which are had in prodigious amounts in the Super Duty – one of the most important features in a truck is its body strength. The Super Duty has that, too, in a stiff chassis that features fully boxed front frame rails and thick C-channel frame rails and crossmembers. All these traits help the Super Duty avoid flexing and twisting, and improve its towing capacity. For such a mammoth vehicle, the Ford Super Duty is stable, sturdy, and quite easy to drive. The cabin is quiet, steering is firm and direct, and the brakes feel strong. Those who like to boast about the numbers can brag about the 800 lb-ft of torque churned out by the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel that enables the Super Duty to tow 18,500 pounds in conventional towing, and 24,700 pounds in a 5th-wheel setup.

Favorite Features

SYNC WITH MYFORD TOUCH
The idea of keeping your eyes on the road when making phone calls or getting directions from a nav system is important in general, and is perhaps even more so in a truck such as this, where workers are often in communication with others or traveling to new places. This system even has a feature that reads incoming text messages.

INTERIOR ACCOUTREMENTS
Heated and cooled seats and a leather steering wheel that warms your hands may sound like features form a luxury vehicle, but they're available in the Super Duty series.
