Super Duty is Ford's descriptive for super-size work trucks. In 2006 they deploy as F-250 Super Duty (three-quarter ton) and F-350 Super Duty (one-ton). These trucks use gasoline engines in V8 and V10 sizes or a torque-king turbo-diesel V8.
Ford's 5.4-liter V8 base plant produces 300 hp. A 6.8-liter V10 rises to 362 hp as the 6.0-liter V8 Power Stroke diesel hits 325 hp with 570 lb-ft of torque. GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) for F-250 climbs to 10,000 pounds, but F-350 begins at 10,700 pounds and ranges through options to 13,000 pounds.
Super Duty trucks appear in three styles -- Regular Cab, SuperCab or Crew Cab -- for trims of XL, XLT and Lariat. More equipment goes to the Lariat Luxury Package this year, as a new Amarillo Package for Lariat Crew Cab sparks with Blazing Yellow paint, polished-aluminum wheels and brushed aluminum door trim.
