WHAT TOUGHNESS MEANS IN BIG PICKUPS

Todays Ford Super Duty® is the toughest heavy-duty pickup we have ever built. We started by cutting body weight with high-strength and aluminum alloy. We then invested some of that weight savings where it really counts - in stronger axles, steering and chassis components, and a fully boxed frame built of over 95 percent high-strength steel.* The result is a Super Duty that boasts class-leading payload and towing.**

*Compared with previous-generation Super Duty.
**Best-in-class payload when properly configured with 6.2L gas engine. Best-in-class towing when properly configured with 6.7L diesel engine. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 3,856 kgs. GVWR based on Ford segmentation.

HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE, ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY

The Super Duty® has the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body in its class.* Aluminum alloy is substantially lighter than the previous body, yet it is remarkably strong. It is also more dent-and-ding resistant and not subject to red rust corrosion. Use of aluminum alloy allowed some of the weight savings to be reinvested where it matters the most, especially in the frame that is the foundation of strength and toughness.

Try to avoid water higher than the bottom of the hubs and proceed slowly. Refer to your owner’s manual for detailed information regarding driving through water.

FULLY BOXED
HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FRAME

The fully boxed frame, built of over 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers, is 24 times stiffer than the previous design. The frame is designed to minimize flexing and twisting while maximizing strength and torsional rigidity - and serves foundation for Super Duty achieving the highest payload and tow ratings in its class.*

*Best-in-class payload when properly configured with 6.2L gas engine.
Best-in-class towing when properly configured with 6.7L diesel engine. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 3,856 kgs. GVWR based on Ford segmentation.

CLASS-EXCLUSIVE SOLID FRONT AXLE

Like the fully boxed high-strength steel frame, the axles are stronger in today’s generation of the Ford Super Duty®. And the Super Duty is the only pickup in its class utilizing the solid front axle on all 4x4 models.* The solid axle provides strength and weight-bearing capability for operating an aftermarket front-end upfit.

ADVANCETRAC® WITH RSC® AND TRAILER SWAY CONTROL

Super Duty® comes with standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) and Trailer Sway Control on both single- and
dual-rear-wheel models. Both systems use gyroscopic sensors and apply a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking to help maintain the stability of the vehicle and the trailer in tow.2019-superduty-durability

LARGEST BRAKES IN CLASS

The F-450 model has the largest four-wheel anti-lock brake routers in its class* - and for a very important reason. You want them to provide the sure stopping power you expect when you are out on the job hauling tons of whatever it is that is riding along with you behind the cab.

OVER 19 MILLION KILOMETERS OF TESTING

We committed this latest generation of the Super Duty® to over 19 million kilometers of testing, under real and simulated conditions. We also put prototype models in the hands of people like you. Our goal: Build a line of heavy-duty pickups with extraordinary performance and capability.

ENGINEERED FOR THE EXTREMES

Super Duty® was tested at temperatures from -28 to 50 degrees. Powertrain tests replicated going up a six-degree grade over 805 kilometers. Super Duty was also subjected to four-post frame twists, gravel, dust, water, brine, mud baths, and even intentionally tested with worn or broken parts. Such extreme conditions often went far beyond what you would likely encounter on your toughest of jobs.
