2018 Ford Super Duty Makes 935 lb-ft of Torque
Ford has given up some details on the horsepower and torque ratings for the 2018 Super Duty line of trucks. If you opt for the Power Stroke diesel version, you will get some big power. The 6.7L diesel makes 450hp, a gain of 10hp from 2017. The peak torque is now 935 lb-ft, up 10 lb-ft from last year.
Ford redesigned the cylinder heads the engine uses for more strength under high loads and to optimize boost and fuel calibrations. The 6.2L gas engine will carry over as will the 6.8L V10. Ford hasn’t said anything about power and torque on those engines.
The diesel Super Duty will tow 21,000 pounds and 7,360 pounds of payload. Buyers will be able to get the F-450 Crew Cab 4×2 dualie for 2018, in 2017 that model was only made in a 4×4 version.
