2014 Ford F-450 Super Duty Pickup

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

 

For 2014 the F-450 Super Duty is the top of Ford’s line for recreational towing. It’s rated to tow up to 24,700 pounds with a fifth-wheel hitch and 18,500 pounds with a conventional hitch. Plus there’s 5,880 pounds of payload capacity, for hauling big campers.
The F-450 is sold in just one body style, a four-door crew cab with an 8-foot bed. You can also have any drivetrain you want, as long as it’s a turbocharged 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel with a six-speed automatic, dually rear wheels and four-wheel drive. The engine is rated at 400 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque and has engine exhaust braking to help control downhill speeds, especially when towing. The F-450 comes standard with ABS, trailer sway control and hill start assist.
