Ford Super Duty Pickups To Guzzle Slightly Less GasS

The 2008 F-Series Super Duty trucks will get improved fuel economy, in addition to the Tonka Truck looks. According to Ford, new trucks could see an improvement of as much as 1.5 MPG, or 10 to 15-percent over current models, depending on how the truck is used. In order to achieve this improvement, Ford lowered the front spoiler to improve aerodynamics and replaced the 3.73 ratio rear axles with 3.55 rear axles, thus shortening the amount of rotations needed by the driveshaft to turn the axles.

The good news for Super Duty truck owners, other than having to fill up only every 23 miles, is this shouldn't have an impact on towing capability for either the F-250 or F-350. PickupTruck.com has a full rundown of the changes to the "Job 3" Super Duty. [PickupTruck.com]
