Despite last year's refresh, our friends at PickupTrucks.com tell us we should expect the 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty to get a bit more Super Chief-like newish nose along with the 6.2-liter V8 under hood.

Here's what our friends at PickupTrucks.com have to say about what we should expect from the new Super-Duper Duty from Ford:

Mechanically, we expect the 2011 Super Duty will carry over Ford's 6.7-liter Scorpion V-8 diesel that's expected to debut in the 2010 trucks. The gas engine is expected to be the new 6.2-liter premium V-8, which should replace the 6.8-liter V-10 next year. Another major powertrain change is the likely end of manual transmissions, though the engineering mules in these pictures show Ford continuing its unique tradition of manual-locking front hubs for four-wheel-drive Super Duty trucks."

So the end of the manny tranny, but a smaller, more efficient 6.2-liter V8 under the hood. Well, you gotta give something to get something. We're just not sure we're happy with what we'll get for what we've got to give up. Of course, we're not in the market for a big ol' pick-me-up truck. [via PickupTrucks.com]

DISCUSSION

I don't see why everybody is so down on automatics in these trucks, maintainance is a pretty well moot point since reccomended service on the transmission is over 100,000 miles, and if you buck the OEM's reccomendation and put 303 Hydraulic fluid in the transmission they last longer.

They're not sports cars so saying that it's more fun is a bit moot too. Not only that these trucks have a hydraulic clutch which is pretty binary (the Superduties I've driven). And don't get me started on the shifter that's biased WAAAAAAAY too far to the left.
