Far-reaching generations of blue-collar Canadian workers have long looked to the Ford Super Duty truck line to fit their needs on the worksite, and today we're looking at the 2018 F-250 Super Duty in particular. Right off the bat, it's clear that this strong, durable pickup has every capability to get the job done no matter what it might entail. Under the hood, you'll find a standard 6.2-litre Flex Fuel V8 engine, which can produce 385 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This helps the Super Duty handle a maximum conventional towing/payload capacity of 9,525/3,461 kilograms, respectively.
The 2018 F-250 Super Duty is also highly adept at keeping you centred and controlled as you drive. It features a Torq-Shift-G® Heavy Duty six-speed SelectShift®automatic transmission, which ensures a smooth and responsive ride while also giving you the most power out of every gear you shift into. Plus, the Super Duty also adds a standard AdvanceTrac® system with Roll Stability Control®, as well as Trailer Sway Control. Both ensure that you'll keep moving forward with confidence no matter the task at hand.
As we move further into the 21st century, not many vehicle types can go without having the latest and greatest tech features housed inside. The 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty is no different, and you'll be treated to such innovations as a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, SOS Post Crash Alert System, and tailgate-mounted Rear-View Camera. The latter of these is a great companion for any ride, as you can see everything in your wake with clarity. In addition, a Blind Spot Monitoring System (with Trailer Coverage) has also entered the fold for the current model year, giving you a better look at your surroundings if you need to haul your cargo down the open road.
Thanks to additional on-board features such as a 2.3" Productivity Screen, the 2018 F-250 Super Duty can put all the essential diagnostics of your drive in high contrast, helping you to get the most out of every time you press the gas. It's important to keep connected to your busy life as well, which is why SYNC®infotainment is also standard. You can connect a compatible smartphone to this system for hands-free streaming and communication with everyone important in your life and business. It's just one more way that the Super Duty works to make your work and life that much easier.
