2017 Ford Super Duty Comes Packing 925 lb-ft of Torque

Ford has announced some big numbers for its new lineup of 2017 Super Duty trucks: 925 lb-ft of torque and 32,500 pounds of max towing capacity.

That tow rating is for a gooseneck hitch on the Ford F-450 4◊4 SuperCrew, which can tow a maximum of 27,500 pounds using a fifth-wheel hitch and 21,000 pounds using a conventional hitch. That means that Fordís four-door F-450 pickup tows 1,290 pounds more than the nearest competitor, the Ram 3500, which needs to be a regular cab two-door truck to hit its max tow number.

Maximum payload in the F-450 has also been boosted to 7,630 pounds, thanks in part to a new aluminum body which helped Ford reduce an average of 350 pounds from its heavy duty trucks. In theF-250, maximum payload comes in at 4,200 pounds.

As for the powerplant, Ford is using the second-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 that makes 440 horsepower and 925 lb-ft of torque, available in all of Fordís heavy duty trucks, from the F-250 to the F-450. A standard 6.2-liter V8 gas engine is also available, delivering 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque and both engines are hooked to six-speed automatic transmissions.
Maximum conventional towing for the F-250 and F-350 with the new trailer tow package comes in at 18,000 pounds. Full towing specs for all models will be released soon.

Ford is also touting new technology in the Super Duty, including adaptive cruise control with trailer-brake support, forward collision warning, a number of new cameras around the truck including one that can be attached to the rear of your trailer and even a blind-spot monitor which can see beside your trailer.

AutoGuide will be driving the new 2017 Ford Super Duty next week, so come back for a full review of Fordís new heavy duty pickups. The 2017 Ford Super Duty goes on sale this fall.
