Power and Performance

The 2017 Ford Super Duty offers a choice of two powerful engines. The 6.2L V6 engine uses two valves for powerful performance, along with a single overhead cam shaft. The specially tuned induction system ensures you get the power you need when you need it, with sequential electronic fuel injection for perfect performance. This engine produces 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. With the fifth wheel goose neck towing system, it can tow up to 16,300 lbs. at a time! You can also choose the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 engine, which is a turbo diesel made for intense towing. The high-pressure common rail fuel injection provides steady and constant diesel power, with a single sequential turbocharger and charged air cooler. This engine produces 440 hp and an incredible 925 lb-ft of torque! It can tow up to 32,000 lbs. at a time when equipped with the fifth wheel goose neck trailer.

The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado offers a choice of two engines as well. The Vortec 6.0L V8 engine uses stratified fuel injection and variable valve timing for a steady stream of power that doesn't reduce fuel efficiency. It produces only 360 hp and a mere 380 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 14,500 lbs. at a time with the fifth wheel trailer. You can also choose the Duramax 6.6L turbo diesel V8 engine, which uses turbocharged direct fuel injection for the power you need. It produces only 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque, towing up to 16,900 lbs. at a time. That's just slightly over half of what the Ford Super Duty's diesel engine can tow!

The 2017 Ford Super Duty comes with a plethora of features for better performance and a more convenient and comfortable workday.

  • Standard theft deterrent alarm system that alerts you in case an intruder attempts to break into your car
  • Available blind spot sensor system that uses a radar camera to scan for vehicles or other obstacles, letting you know via audible and visual alert when there is a vehicle in your blind spot
