    Overview

    Ford F-Series Super Duty® is the proven leader in the over-8,500-pound gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) pickup segment with a reputation as America’s get-the-job-done, rugged, practical and capable truck.

    For 2007,. F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups offer even more for customers, including the all-new Lariat Highline SuperCab and Lariat Outlaw Crew Cab.

    F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups are available in Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab body styles in XL, XLT and Lariat trims. For even higher payload capacity, F-350 Super Duty is available in a dual-rear-wheel (DRW) “dually” configuration.

    F-Series Super Duty pickups are built in Louisville, Ky.

    Design and Equipment

    Super Duty’s design complements its legendary capabilities with a bold, tough look and a refined interior.

    Super Duty’s grille draws cues from the popular Mighty F-350 TONKA concept truck’s chiseled good looks. Sharp edges and vertical bar surfaces provide a milled appearance. Available paint choices include dozens of monochromatic and two-tone combinations. Wheel-lip moldings coordinate with the two-tone treatment on some series.

    Large three-dimensional badges identify each series and powertrain. Super Duty has led the way by being the first in the segment to offer 18- and 20-inch wheels.

    New for 2007, a Lariat Highline Edition is available on F-250 and F-350 SRW SuperCab models. Chrome is the theme, with that finish gracing the billet-style grille, 5-inch tubular step bars, tow hooks, mirror caps, exhaust tips and accenting the instrument cluster. Seating is via Captain’s Chairs with unique black leather seating surfaces.

    Also new is the Lariat Outlaw Package, available on F-250 and F-350 SRW Crew Cab models. Boasting a black monotone paint treatment with a unique red tape stripe, the black theme is carried inside with unique black and red leather trimmed Captain’s Chairs with center console and FlexFold™ 60/40 rear bench seat. Unique ebony accents abound on the carpet, door trim insert, scuff plates and B-pillars.

    Three fresh color combinations are offered for the Ford Harley-Davidson™ F-Series Super Duty – Black with Medium Wedgewood Blue Flames, Dark Stone with Black Flames and Medium Wedgewood Blue with Black Flames. The Harley-Davidson™ package is available on Crew Cab Lariat models and includes a host of unique appearance features.

    Also newly available for 2007 XL models is a power equipment group that includes power locks, power front side windows (and rears on Crew Cab), one-touch down driver-side window, foldaway black power mirrors. A 40/20/40 split bench seat is also available on all XL models.

    Powertrain and Chassis

    F-Series Super Duty continues to set the standard for capability in the full-size pickup segment, offering best-in-class payload, gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) and conventional and fifth-wheel trailer tow ratings.

    Three engine options include the segment’s most powerful gasoline engine.

    The 6.8-liter, three-valve Triton™ V-10 produces 362 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque – both class-leading figures.

    The segment’s best-selling diesel engine – Power Stroke® – is rated at 325 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque.

    Ford’s modular 5.4-liter, three-valve Triton V-8 delivers 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. More than 80 percent of peak torque – nearly 300 pound-feet – is available starting as low as 1,000 rpm.

    All engines benefit from electronic throttle control, which provides economy and performance benefits. For commercial users who need elevated engine speed to run aftermarket power takeoff (PTO) systems, the “stationary elevated idle control” feature is available on all models.

    Super Duty transmissions include a rugged six-speed manual and sophisticated TorqShift® five-speed automatic.

    F-Series Super Duty pickups have more towing and payload capacity than ever, making F-350 capable of towing a class-leading 19,200 pounds, when properly equipped.

    Ford’s available TowCommand™ System, which includes the industry’s first factory-installed and warranted electronic trailer brake controller, offers smoother operation and safety features. This includes a special trailer brake strategy when the truck’s anti-lock braking system detects poor traction. No aftermarket trailer brake controller can do this. Ford’s TowCommand System also includes TorqShift® transmission with tow-haul mode and telescoping trailer tow mirrors.

    Super Duty’s frame features a fully boxed front section for strength and torsional stiffness. From the boxed section back, the frame uses steel that is the thickest gauge of any pickup.

    Properly equipped, dual-rear-wheel Super Duty pickups with the 6.8-liter, 3-valve Triton V-10 and 6.0-liter Power Stroke Turbodiesel have the ability to tow up to a class-leading 15,000 pounds on a conventional hitch.

    Safety and Security

    All F-250 and F-350 Super Duty models include driver and front passenger air bags, BeltMinder® and anti-lock brakes as standard equipment.
