What We Don't Like

  • The only way you can tell it's the new Super Duty is to see it head on
  • The rest of the truck looks old
  • New 6.2-liter V-8 gasoline engine doesn't feel as powerful as the old 6.8-liter V-10
  • Needs better brake feel and power to handle big increases in towing and hauling
  • F-450 pickup has been downgraded in payload capacity and shares most frame hardware with F-350
  • Ride quality in crew-cab and extended-cab models could be improved with hydraulic body mounts

Notable Features

  • Updated exterior styling
  • All-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V-8 and 6.2-liter V-8 gas engines
  • 17-inch wheels now standard on F-450 pickup

Trims Explained

When talking about cars, “trims” is a way of differentiating between different versions of the same model. Typically, most start with a no-frills, or “base” trim, and as features are added, or a different engine, drivetrain (gas vs. hybrid, for example) or transmission are included, trim names change and prices go up.


It’s important to carefully check the trims of the car you’re interested in to make sure that you’re getting the features you want, or that you’re not overpaying for features you don’t want.
