    2017 Ford Super Duty Regains Power, Payload and Towing Crown.

    Surprised this hasn't been posted here already.


    • Most capability: All-new F-Series Super Duty can tow heavier trailers and haul heavier cargo than ever before, with maximum gooseneck towing capacity raised to 32,500 pounds on F-450, fifth-wheel towing capacity boosted to class-leading 27,500 pounds and conventional towing to class-leading 21,000 pounds; maximum payload now rated at up to best-in-class 7,630 pounds.

    • Most power: 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel boosts horsepower to a class-leading 440 and torque to a class-leading 925 lb.-ft. for all pickup models – from F-250 to F-450; 6.2-liter V8 gas model offers best-in-class torque of 430 lb.-ft.

    • Most confidence: Class-exclusive smart technologies help make towing easier and enable increased confidence, including BLIS® with trailer tow, adaptive cruise control that works with the heaviest trailers, and Trailer Reverse Guidance to help back trailers up.

    I feel just the opposite, I like the F-150 a lot better than the SD.

    I think I'll be keeping my '16 for a while, although I do like a lot of the new features for '17.

    It is the logo because the style and shape of the grille looks like they stole it from a previous Lincoln model.

    Are you sure many of your negative leaning GM comments aren't because of the logo?

    And as far as the class leading tow ratings, they will be class leading until GM or FCA decides to update their marketing materials with a made up "max towing/payload ratings". I'd swear these tow ratings are the biggest piece of vaporware the industry puts out.

    It's kind of hard to steal something you already own.

    So, you're claiming Ford has just pulled this tow rating out of thin-air? Or that the Super Duty can't really pull 32,500 lbs?

    I'm certain it can pull what they claim. And I bet for each truck class that Ford, GM and FCA are in, each competitor can pull whatever the class leader can do. I think marketing has more to do with these tow ratings that actual specific science. Does the 32,500 tow rating mean the Ford can't pull 500 more lbs? I bet it can pull 500lbs more and capabilities gradually diminish as the weight gets higher. I suspect marketing/legal puts a stake in the sand where the gradual diminished capabilities become so obvious that they can't make the claim. These max towing capabilities are up there with GM's "holes in aluminum bed" campaign.

    Don't we have SAE testing now in place for tow ratings?

    Well, Excuuuse me. Borrowed then. A Lincoln is a Lincoln and a Ford is a Ford even if they put a blue oval on a Lincoln looking grille.
