How the Ford SuperDuty Became the New King of the Trucks
Ford Trucks have built a reputation for being among the hardest working machines in the industry. For almost 50 years now, Ford F-Series trucks have dominated the landscape and have been the best-selling trucks in America for the last 44 years in a row. In short, Ford trucks are the best-of-the-best, and the new generation of Ford Super Duty trucks may very well be the best truck lineup of all time.
In this brief guide, you’ll learn all about the Ford Superduty, including the specs, performance systems, onboard tech features, entertainment options, and the different models that are available.
The Ford Superduty boasts two of the strongest engines available in the industry; the all-new 7.3L OHV gas-powered V8 and the ferocious Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel. On top of that, the Super Duty includes some of the best performance features for heavy hauling and work functions, which is probably why it cleaned up at the awards this year, winning best-in-class across five categories, including hauling, towing, horsepower, payload, and 5th-wheel towing.
In addition to all of the advanced performance capabilities of the Ford Super Duty, newer models also include some of the best safety features to be found anywhere. Let’s take a closer look at some of them.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
Designed to save lives in the event of an emergency, this system scans the road ahead for potential accidents and will notify you if it detects a possible upcoming collision so that you can take action to prevent the crash. If you are unable to react on time, the system will automatically apply the brakes to avoid the collision or mitigate any damage caused by the accident.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Alert and Braking Assist
The next level of cruise control has arrived in the Ford Superduty. This smart system allows you to automatically follow the vehicle ahead from a safe distance; if they slow down, the Superduty will also slow down to match their speed, and if they stop suddenly, then the Super Duty will help you brake automatically to try and avoid any potential accidents.
BLIS Blind-spot Information System
The newer Ford SuperDuty trucks are equipped with the BLIS system, which is one of the most advanced blind-spot notification systems available in any vehicle. The system alerts you to the presence of any other vehicles in your blind spot so that you’ll never have to guess whether or not there’s another vehicle present, and you can always make lane changes comfortably, safely, and with confidence.
Pro Trailer Backup Assist
The best trailer assist feature in the industry, the new Pro-Trailer backup assist system makes reversing with a trailer in tow easier than it’s ever been before. The system electronically helps maneuver the trailer while you reverse and includes a smart camera attached to the rear of the vehicle so that you always have eyes behind you even when a boat or trailer is obstructing your view.
Hill Descent Control
Tackling steep hills is no longer a big concern. Even when towing at maximum capacity, the Hill Descent Control system electronically stabilizes the Super Duty and helps ensure that you can still brake and maintain control regardless of how steep the hill is or how much weight you’re towing.
Trail Control with Rock-Crawl Mode
The equipped trail control system in the Super Duty makes navigating off-road a breeze. The system works like cruise control, but when you are off on a trail or other challenging terrain. Rock-Crawl mode makes it so that you’ll never need to worry about getting your tire stuck in the mud again; the system engages extra power to get you out of even the tightest spots and back on your way.
The new SYNC 4 system is one of the best infotainment systems in this generation of trucks. SYNC4, unlike SYNC3, is cloud-based, meaning that you’ll always have access to system updates, apps, and other services, without always needing to rely on your smartphone or another device. SYNC 4 also offers media streaming so that you can listen to your playlists or radio stations right from your favorite streaming service.
Ford has teamed up with Amazon to offer Alexa within the new Ford Super Duty. Alexa is a virtual assistant that can help by giving directions, streaming music, making phone calls, sending text messages, and more. Alexa has 300,000 additional skills that can be installed and used right from within your Superduty, and best of all, it’s hands-free and responds to natural voice commands so that you can keep your hands on the steering wheel and remain as safe as possible.
