How Much Does a Ford Super Duty Cost?
Ford Super Duty Prices
If you're a rancher, construction worker, or contractor, you might be interested in a Ford Super Duty. If you do work in any of those demanding professions you'll be pleased to know that Ford has introduced significant changes for its 2011 Super Duty models.
While the body style is similar to previous years' models the fascia and grille (on all but the most basic models) are made of chrome and surrounded by bigger headlights. Inside the cabin there are new seats and a lockable bin under an optional front center bench (able to fold down as an armrest). The updated center console is more like an on-the-go cubicle, with 60 percent more storage, seventy different configurations, 12-volt power points (ideal for a laptop), a 110-volt inverter, and two rear HVAC ducts. One of the nicest new features is an optional 4.2-inch center-mounted “LCD Productivity” display that shows you data such as fuel economy, outside temperature, and trailer and off-road information. Buyers can also purchase a Super Duty that comes with the Ford Work Solutions package, an in-dash, internet-ready computer that can perform such useful functions as tracking equipment and fleet-members.

You will appreciate Ford's efforts to make the Super Duty more handsome, comfortable, and functional, but it's what doesn't meet the eye that is more likely to impress you. The Super Duty is available in 2011 with two new engines. The first is a 6.2-liter, 385 horsepower V8 gas engine that produces 405 pound-feet of torque. The second new engine is a 6.7-liter, 400 horsepower V8 diesel that's good for 800 lb-feet of torque. It can run off of B20 biodiesel and impressively, is about 1/5 more fuel efficient and produces fewer emissions than Ford's previous diesel engine. Both Super Duty powertrains are matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.
When driving the Super Duty you'll be impressed, not only with the new engines, but upgraded handling and ride quality. Much of this can be credited to an enhanced I-beam suspension as well as a new frame, springs, shocks, and steering mechanisms. Improved responsiveness is a welcome addition to any truck but you're likely to find a greater sense of control particularly gratifying when pulling a 15,000 pound trailer. Diminished cabin noise is also notable.
The 2011 Ford Super Duty comes in three basic models: the F-250, F-350, and F-450, all of which can be further divided between XL, XLT, Lariat, and King Ranch trim levels. The availability of so many different versions, options and packages on the Super Duty makes for a head-spinning number of possible combinations, but the highlights are described below.
The XL is the basic workhorse of each model while the King Ranch provides maximum luxury and comfort. Note that some of the standard equipment on the Lariat and King Ranch trims (such as fog lights, remote start, leather interior, heated seats, the Ford Sync hands-free infotainment center, and more) can be added to the XL and XLT trims.
Ford offers the Super Duty in three cab styles: regular, SuperCab (featuring two small rear doors) and crew cab (with four full-size doors). The F-450 is only available as a crew cab. Two bed sizes, 6.75-foot and 8-foot, are also available. Towing capacity ranges from a competent 12,500 pounds to a whopping, class-leading 24,400 on the F-450. Payload tops out at 4,920 pounds.
It bears repeating that the 2011 Ford Super Duty has a truly enormous range of potential configurations, including two and four-wheel drive versions, tow and plow packages, tech-savvy gadgets, and upgradable engine components. That being said, Ford is sure to offer a Super Duty that can handle what you plan on dishing out, whether it's the day-to-day grind of a construction site or moving an endangered whale to a new feeding ground. The only question to ask is: how much do you need?
