When the ultra-popular, half-ton Ford F-150 can’t meet one’s towing demands, the Ford F-Super Series comes to the play. The first step in the range is the three-quarter-ton F-250 and it will provide high towing ratings which exceed 18, 000 pounds and without of the dual-rear-wheel setup. The truck comes with two proven V-8 engines and for the best towing it offers the Power Stroke Turbodiesel as the solution.

The changes will include the new Sport Package with the 20-inch wheels, dark exterior accents, and new sound system but all charges are associated with Lariat trim. The diesel engine will be standard on the top Limited trim and available on others.
