    2000 F-SUPER DUTY TRUCKS

    When it comes to big, tough hauling and towing applications,
    Super Duty models just keep getting better. Ford’s changes to its
    over-8500-pound GVWR trucks for 2000 add comfort, convenience and
    storage space, following a host of major improvements last year.

    Major product changes include

    • Four-wheel anti-lock brakes standard on Lariat trim level in the
      F-250 and F-350 pickup, and F-350 single rear wheel chassis.
    • Optional bucket seats on XL trim levels for F-250 and F-350
      pickups, and F-350, -450 and -550 chassis cabs. Bucket seats
      accommodate commercial and individual buyers who need additional
      space for custom storage. Bench seats continue to be standard.
    • Clean fuel (LEV) gasoline engines are standard on all Super
      Dutys.
    • New manual telescoping trailer tow mirrors will replace
      non-telescoping trailer tow mirrors.
    • Rear bumpers standard on all F-250 and F-350 pickups.
    • Standard power windows and door locks on XLT trim levels.
    • New exterior colors for F-Super Duty trucks include Harvest Gold
      Clearcoat Metallic and Island Blue Clearcoat Metallic.
    • New interior colors include dark denim blue and medium dark
      parchment.

    The Lineup

    Ford F-Super Duty models are available in regular cab, four-door
    SuperCab, and crew cab, as well as a Class-A motorhome chassis.
    There are 44 different configurations, 15 of them unique to the
    industry. F-250 and F-350 SuperCab pickups and Chassis Cabs include
    a standard rear seat on all trim levels (XL, XLT and Lariat).

    Powertrains

    Ford Super Duty trucks are powered by the Triton
    5.4-liter V-8 or 6.8-liter V-10 gasoline engines. Ford’s 7.3-liter
    Power Stroke diesel engine also is available. All engines are
    teamed with manual or automatic overdrive transmissions.

    Super Duty F-Series trucks are equipped with standard four-wheel
    disc brakes. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are standard on all
    vehicles with GVWRs over 10,000 pounds, and on all Lariat models.

    All Super Duty models are available in two- or four-wheel drive.
    Pickups come in short- or long-box configurations and there is a
    delete-box option.

    Gross vehicle weight ratings range from 8,800 pounds for the
    F-250 pickup to 19,000 pounds for the F-550 4×2 Regular Cab chassis
    cab. Payload ratings are available up to a maximum of 12,270
    pounds.

    Sales and Manufacturing

    The over-8500-pound GVWR segment of the U.S. truck
    market has expanded significantly in the late `90s as the service
    sector booms. Ford offers the industry’s most complete lineup of
    trucks in both the under and over 8500-pound segments.

    Ford sold 836,629 total F-Series trucks (combined LD and HD) in
    the United States in 1998. In the U.S., Super Duty F-Series trucks
    are built at Ford’s Louisville, Kentucky assembly plant.
