On The Cover Review: 2011 Ford Super Duty
If Ford knows how to do anything really well, it is build pickup trucks. F-250, F-350, and F-450 trucks, also known as “Super Duties”, are used and abused by happy owners every day. And even though the idea of a pickup truck-type vehicle goes back to when people pulled wagons with horses, Ford continues to update, upgrade, and modernize their trucks with each passing year. The 2011 truck is a good case in point. Some of the changes are cosmetic, as it takes several design cues from the Super Chief concept that was shown at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. But under the hood, there will be a new 6.7-liter Scorpion Power Stroke diesel V8 available. Ford promises more power, better fuel economy, and the ability to run the new engine on B20 biodiesel. As time goes on, Red Book hopes to put the 2011 Super Duty to the test. As we get more information, we’ll pass it along to our readers.
