Do You Have a Gasoline-Powered Super Duty?
It seems like whenever we talk about the Ford F-Series Super Duty line of products, we almost always mention the version with the diesel engine. It’s no surprise, really, when you consider that the Power Stroke diesel in the 2017 Super Duty makes 925 lb-ft of torque. That’s a lot. It’s also how the new Super Duty can have insane towing numbers. But there’s always a base, gasoline-powered V8 in the mix. Do you have one of those trucks?
On the launch program earlier this year in Denver I drove the new truck with the 6.2L V8 — basically the same engine that was in the last-generation Raptor — and found it to be quite a good truck. Sure, it doesn’t have the same towing capacity as the diesel, but for everyday drivability I actually prefer the gasoline engine. The new 6-speed transmission for the V8 shifts the truck nice and smooth, and there is no turbo lag. Let’s also not forget that the gasoline truck is significantly cheaper than the diesel version.
What’s it like to own a gasoline-powered Super Duty? That’s what we want to know from you. We do expect to spend more time with the new Super Duty in the coming year, but nobody will get the same experience as you do every day. So we want to know what it’s been like for you.
