Performance has just received an upgrade - with Ford unveiling its 2018 F-450 to Seattle. This Super Duty model yields extraordinary power, promising up to 21,000 pounds of conventional hitch towing and 7,360 pounds of payload capabilities. This marks it as a segment leader.
How does it achieve such staggering numbers? Ford explains that it’s tweaked the F-450’s engine - ensuring maximum output with every mile.
According to Fleet Equipment Mag, the 2018 F-450 reigns supreme in Seattle. Bolstered by a 6.7L PowerStroke diesel, this platform dominates the full-ton market - delivering 410 HP and 935 lb.-ft of torque. Ford maintains this performance ratio by enhancing the engine. The cylinder heads have been enlarged to improve capacity, while turbo-boost calibrations provide direct-injection capability. Fuel distribution has also been improved, with a reverse-flow configuration modulating intake levels. Through this, the Super Duty maintains precise responses on the highway.
To further push the PowerStroke to new heights, Ford has also utilized a lightweight graphite block casing. This proves more efficient than traditional cast iron and conducts power with greater accuracy - allowing the 6.7L motor to rumble through every terrain with ease.
With the release of the 2018 F-450, Ford enables drivers to experience unprecedented performance. To learn more about this pick-up contact our team today.
