If you’re looking for a truck that can truly handle anything, look no further than the 2013 Ford Super-Duty lineup. These trucks are made with a chassis like no other, and are designed to take on the most demanding jobs with ease. And with 15 different models to choose from at Terry’s Ford, your Bradley-area Ford dealer, there is guaranteed to be a Super-Duty truck built for the job at hand. Drivers in Peotone and Bradley choose the Super-Duty line from Ford for the really tough jobs.
It isn’t the strength of its chassis or the ruggedness of the wheels that makes a truck a Super-Duty; it’s the engine. The 2013 Ford Super-Duty base-model trucks come with a 6.2L SOHC gas engine, giving you 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. If you need an upgrade, you can also get your Super-Duty truck with a "Scorpion" 6.7L turbocharged diesel V8 engine. With 400 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque, this is an engine of truly unmatched power. The base-model F-250 can carry a maximum payload of 4,240 lbs. and it has a towing capacity of 14,000 lbs. But all this power doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get solid fuel efficiency; in fact, the “Scorpion” 6.7L diesel engine and the 6.2L SOHC gas engine deliver best-in-class fuel economy.
There’s no question of whether or not the new Super-Duty trucks can get the job done, but what’s in the cab can be almost as important as what’s under the hood. So every Super-Duty truck comes standard with the SYNC system from Ford. When you connect a compatible smartphone or mp3 player via Bluetooth or USB, SYNC lets you control them with your voice, so you can make that phone call or skip a track without taking off your work gloves or taking your hands off the steering wheel. And you can upgrade the system with the available MyFord Touch 8” infotainment screen.
If you need a truck that can handle anything, there’s a Super-Duty truck waiting for you. Stop by your local Ford dealership a test drive one today. You won’t regret it.
