The all-new 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty has a lot to offer, including confidence-inspiring technology and a new suite of cloud-based services to help with productivity on and off the job site. But if that wasn’t enough, Ford announced that the new Super Duty offers the best in class… everything. From performance to the payload, this truck is a beast.
2023 Ford Super Duty: Best In Class Towing, Payload, Torque
Heavy-duty pickup owners use their trucks for towing, so the Ford Super Duty offers the best maximum tow rating for all types of trailering, including conventional (including pintle), fifth-wheel, and gooseneck trailers. At a maximum of 40,000 pounds of gooseneck towing, that’s half the combined weight of a semi-tractor and a fully loaded trailer. As a result, owners have plenty of pulling power to use; they just have to decide which truck best fits their needs.
The 2023 Ford Super Duty is also packed with innovations to increase towing confidence even in the toughest conditions. With an available Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, which steers the truck to align the hitch ball to the receiver, optional Smart Hitch helps customers distribute trailer weight properly, and the 360-Degree Trailer Camera Package provides a birds-eye view of the truck, cargo box, and trailer. There is also a full-color head-up display that helps keep eyes on the road and shows turn-by-turn Trailer Navigation that customizes your route to make driving easier with a trailer.
Steep grades and heavy loads will feel easier with four engines, including the all-new 6.8-liter gas, upgraded 7.3-liter gas V8, 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8, and new high-output 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 producing class-leading 1,200 lb-ft of torque and 500 horsepower. Every engine is paired to a 10-speed transmission with 4×4 standard on XLT and above.
Lastly, the 2023 Ford Super Duty pickup offers the best maximum payload rating available at 8,000 pounds. In addition, available Onboard Scales can measure a payload equivalent to up to 100 eight-pound bags of cement. But the business end of the pickup is more than just hauling; it’s designed for productivity with standard bedside and rear bumper corner steps and an available tailgate step three inches lower than before. There’s also plenty of technology available for heavy-duty trucks to make work much more productive.
