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 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.

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.

One Of These Things Does Not Belong: God Blessed Texas With The 2008…

Things supposedly run a bit different in Texas than they do in the rest of the country. For the most part, from what we hear, things are bigger, longer and a whole lot more god-fearing down there. We guess since stuff's so big, long and holy — it'd make sense for the automakers to have spent the end of the last month… » 10/20/06 9:29am 10/20/06 9:29am
