Custom 6x6 Ford truck is almost as ridiculous as it is massive

It seems with custom 4x4 show trucks and the people who build them "more" is always better. It doesn't particularly matter what it is—wheels, lift, length, silly graphics—the more there is, the better it is. If ever there were a vehicle to illustrate this way of thinking it's this 6x6 1993 Ford F350 currently listed on… » 2/05/12 11:00am 2/05/12 11:00am

2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty: First Drive

The 2011 Ford Super Duty's a gamble. Ford's newest heavy hauler abandons the well-known Navistar-supplied Powerstroke diesel for a brand new all-Ford designed powerplant supposedly delivering monstrous power, squeaky-clean emissions, better fuel economy and the same price. Seems suspiciously impressive. » 3/08/10 12:00am 3/08/10 12:00am

2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty Gadgets

We're not talking about flip-down DVDs and Bluetooth here. The new 2011 Ford Super Duty's have some very serious trucktastic gadgets to set them apart from the crowd. The one that'll get long-haul guys feeling frisky is the new 4.2 inch gauge-mounted "Productivity Screen." It's used in the truck as something of a super… » 9/24/09 2:01pm 9/24/09 2:01pm

2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty Chassis

Good news, if you're terrified of change: One of the few things on the 2011 Ford Super Duty that hasn't significantly changed is the chassis. The frame, suspension, brakes, and most of the steering components are largely carried over. That's not to say they haven't been tweaked to make them better than the last… » 9/24/09 2:00pm 9/24/09 2:00pm

6R140 TorqShift Six-Speed Transmission

Ford designed their all-new 6R140 TorqShift Six-Speed Transmission to meet the power from both the 6.7 liter Power Stroke and the 6.2 liter gasoline V8, a unique proposition considering diesels provide their power at low speeds and gasoline motors have much higher red lines than diesels. The new six-speed does this by… » 9/24/09 1:32pm 9/24/09 1:32pm

6.2 Liter Gasoline V8

The 6.2-liter gasoline V8 might not be the headline-grabbing beast the Power Stroke is, at least not in the Super Duty, but when it makes its way into the F150 Raptor people will most certainly be defecating bricks. The second all-new engine debuting with the Super Duty platform, the 6.2 liter V8 will reportedly… » 9/24/09 12:43pm 9/24/09 12:43pm

6.7 Liter Power Stroke Diesel

The most noteworthy characteristic of the new engine is also the most… » 9/24/09 12:42pm 9/24/09 12:42pm

2010 Ford F-150's New 4.4L V8 Diesel Engine Gets Leaked To Internet

Remember that Ford dealer conference we learned about last week from our friends at PickupTruck.com? That's the conference where we heard about the scoop on Ford's upcoming and long-rumored off-road Ford F-150 Raptor program.

2008 Ford F-350 SuperDuty FX4, Part Three

Why you should buy this car:
You go to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo every year, not for the filet mignon chili or Brooks & Dunn, but rather for the actual livestock. On your weekly checklist is the item "pick up feed." There's a long, broken road out to your property and your kids won't roll without Spongebob. You're … » 3/27/08 12:00pm 3/27/08 12:00pm

2008 Ford F-350 SuperDuty FX4, Part Two

Exterior Design:**
Whereas the previous generation had a distinct and attractive profile and front fascia, the current version is merely distinct. There are those that love it and those that hate it, but I think most people look at it as a Tonka Truck. However, if we gave points based on badge size the F-350 would get… » 3/26/08 12:30pm 3/26/08 12:30pm

2008 Ford F-350 SuperDuty FX4, Part One

The big, red 2008 Ford F-350 SuperDuty makes me think of a Terry Allen song called "Amarillo Highway." It features the line: I don't wear no Stetson, but I'm willing to bet son / that I'm as big a Texan as you are. When people find out where I'm from, they often say, "You don't sound like you're from Texas." I correct them … » 3/25/08 12:30pm 3/25/08 12:30pm
