2012 F-150 SuperCrew to get extended payload

Check out this homepage article about the 2012 F-150 SuperCrew getting a significantly larger payload. Is the larger payload in the SuperCrew a welcome addition?

Uh-oh... lower fuel economy - Obama will not approve ;-)

I'm sure it will be a welcome addition, as it seems to be going in the direction the customer desires (vs the government as previously discussed).

Go Ford!

It certainly will be a welcome change especially if the 6.2L will also be offered in this configuration. It will make it a true 5th wheel towing machine.

That's what I'm hoping for the 6.2l in the 6.5' box.

Again I ask, why do these trucks have to be so damned stout? Isn't that why Ford builds a Superduty?

Extended cab? What is that question referring to? The article makes no reference to a bigger cab.

This article makes me happy, especially after reading about electric-powered Super Duty trucks. For a moment there, I thought Ford was going soft...

SuperCrew just means 4 door right? So, the 4 door models will now have a heavier payload capacity. What are they saying about the 6.5' bed? The 6.5' bed was always available with the SuperCrew. You can still get the 5.5' bed, right?

I understand the increase in payload... just thought the article was a little confusing.

Not all trucks are equal. A regular cab 4x2 truck will inherently have a higher payload capacity than a heavier 4x4 Screw truck will have as these trucks are currently built on the same chassis.

The 2012 Scew trucks will have some frame re-enforcements enhancements that will enable it to carry a similar payload as the reg cab trucks.

It makes sense from a business standpoint to offer this as these trucks fetch far bigger bucks than a reg cab 4x2 XL does.

I like the option. I am not sure if this article means the package is available (like the heavy payload option you could get on a XLT w/ 8' bed) or if it means this is how they're all going to roll off the line.

I agree with Tseekins - doesnt make sense for everyone, as lots of people will do just fine with the current payload capabilities. Wonder what the impact will have on the ride as I was really impressed with the ride of the 2011 Screw.

I am with atbear too, I think the article was confusing. I think the last line should have read "Is the extended capabilities in the Screw welcome".

Wonder if they'd ever consider a Screw/8' bed. Probably best left to the SD arena, but curious.

Are you talking about a SuperCrew with an 8' bed with these higher payload capacities? I can spec a SuperCrew with an 8' bed in a 2011 F150 on Ford's website...

As said above... if this new capability hurts fuel economy or ride, I'd probably rather do without.

Sorry, but no you can't spec a screw with an 8' bed. It is not available. You may mean a scab.

Thumbs up

it's a great option for those who want to stick with a 150 versus a 2/350 whether it's because the 150 is so much more nicer aesthetically and/or easier to park due to its smaller size.

I personally don't need that additional capacity, especially since there will probably be a scarcity of 7-lug aftermarket wheels to my liking (I'm one of those "vanity" types and need my "bling" fix in the form of shiny rims ).

Agreed. He must have meant a Scab.

I agree with everything you said here. Even the blingy part. I love my chrome
