These trucks were styled distinctly for the first time from the smaller F-150 half-ton pickups. They did not share components with the F-150 platform at all, even though it was still considered an F-series truck. Instead of the aero look, it was more boldly angular with a raised hood and lowered fenders, somewhat like fender / hood medium truck style pioneered by the 1994 Dodge Ram pickup. An industry first, 2 big massive complete ring-style front tow hooks. The side windows went lower forward in the door like a commercial medium to heavy duty truck (similar to a Kenworth "Daylight Door"), and the grille was also narrower and tall as if from a larger truck, and in 2003, optional manual telescoping Trailer Tow (TT) mirrors became available. There were three cab options: Standard (2-3 passengers) with two doors, SuperCab (5-6 passengers) with 2 reverse-opening small rear doors (4 doors), and the crew cab with 4 full doors and seats for 4-6 people. The Super and Crew cabs came with 6.75' and 8' full-size bed options, but the Standard cab was only available with the 8' bed. The F-250 Super Duty would also be the base platform for the short-lived Ford Excursion which was the only passenger SUV larger than the Chevrolet Suburban and its twin, the GMC Yukon XL.[1] Second generation Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab See also Dodge Ram 50, an unrelated Mitsubishi-produced truck The Ram is a full-size pickup truck from DaimlerChryslers Dodge brand. ...

Due to the fact that Ford Motor Company discovered that over 80% of the Super Dutys were used for towing heavy trailers on a regular day-to-day basis [2], Ford restyled the line for 2005. Exterior styling was given a minor update with a new front end, but this generation has major strength improvements.

The front suspension on 4x4's use a solid front (monobeam) Dana Super 60 axle, but switched from leaf springs to coils and added a sway bar. On 4x4 models you still have a choice of a manual gear-driven transfer case floor shifter with manual locking front hubs or Electronic-Shift-On-the-Fly (ESOF, a $185 option over the manual) dash knob with vacuum activated automatic & (in case of failure) manual override front hubs. The optional FX4 models are basically a standard 4x4 with an Off Road package that includes a few extras like upgraded heavy duty Rancho shocks, limited-slip rear differential, added skid plates for the fuel tank and transfer case, and two "FX4" decals on both back bed-sides instead of the standard "4x4". For all 4x4 models, the 2-speed transfer case 4x4-LOW range has a gear reduction of 2.72:1.

The two previous gas engines were upgraded from the old 2 valve per cylinder to 3 valve (2 intake & 1 exhaust) per cylinder. The standard 5.4 L V8 puts out 300 horsepower and 365 foot-pounds of torque, and the optional 6.8 L V10 puts out 362 hp & 457 ft·lbf.


There was one optional diesel engine available. The 6.0 L DOHC Power Stroke single-turbo diesel was also modified, boosting torque to 570 ft·lbf, but power remained the same as previous versions with 325 horsepower. Due to very high warranty exposure and over 500 vehicle full buy backs (due to the Lemon Law), late 2006 was the last of the 6.0 L diesels. The major problem with the Navistar diesel engines are due to damage resulting from defective fuel injectors, which suffer from side loading, which then causes raw fuel to flood and enter the engine's oil crankcase or hydro-lock the engine. The previous occurrence is so disastrous that a total engine replacement is often required. There were also minor problems resulting from the unreliable factory variable-vane turbocharger, EGR valve carbon deposit clogging/sticking, defective Exhaust Pressure (EP) sensor/connector, extensive PCM recalibrations, fuel injector harness chafing/crushing, general engine stalling/bucking, and inability to conform to the new Federal diesel emissions standards of January 1, 2007.


Ford's "Fail-Safe Cooling System" is very unique. This system is designed to protect the engine due to loss of coolant (since these engines can not overheat for being 'overworked'). If the engine overheats, it will automatically switch from 8/10 cylinder (depending on V8 or V10 engine) operation to alternating 4/5 cylinder (depending on V8 or V10 engine) operation. Due to the fact that there is now 50% less hot combustion, the engine will operate cooler. The vehicle will continue to operate, but with very limited engine power. The now so-called 'dead' cylinders also act like an air pump to cool the engine down even more. This system allows the driver to travel a short distance to obtain service or to reach a repair facility. The distance that can be traveled depends upon vehicle load, outside temperature, and current road conditions.


Only 2 transmissions are available. The standard M6OD 6-speed manual overdrive and the optional heavy duty TorqShift 5R110W 5-speed automatic overdrive with Tow/Haul mode which replaced the 4-speed 4R100 used in the first generation. This Torqshift 5-speed transmission also became available on all versions of the trucks marketed. On the TorqShift, once the Tow/Haul mode is activated it can help increase a driver's control when towing large loads up and down steep grades and automatically minimizes shifts and maximizes available torque. Upon descent, the Tow/Haul mode utilizes engine braking to help extend brake life and improve driver control. An adaptive shift function monitors the TorqShift's performance over its lifetime, and adjusts shift pressures in real time to assure consistent shift feel and compensate for wear. For ease of maintenance, the TorqShift's oil filter is a spin-off style, mounted on the passenger-side exterior of the transmission. Also the TorqShift's larger fluid lines and a larger transmission oil cooler help to assure cooler operating temperatures, even under the most demanding conditions. Ford Motor Company introduced the new extra-heavy duty automatic truck transmission called the TorqShift® in early 2003. ...


The TorqShift 5-speed auto 1st to 5th gear ratios are 3.11, 2.22, 1.55, 1.00, & 0.71:1. The 6-speed manual 1st to 6th gear ratios are 5.79, 3.30, 2.10, 1.30, 1.00, & 0.72:1. Trucks with the optional TorqShift 5-speed automatic are rated at exactly 1,000 lbs higher towing capacity then trucks with the standard 6-speed manual transmission.


Ford offers a PTO (power take-off) which provides direct engine power for accessory equipment without the expense and installation time of separate, independently mounted electric motors or other power sources. The standard equipment 6-speed manual transmission comes with an integrated PTO. The optional TorqShift 5-speed automatic transmission can be equipped with an integrated PTO provision (it automatically locks the torque converter providing power to the PTO gear when the operator turns on the PTO switch). A tractor PTO A power take-off (PTO) is a splined driveshaft, usually on a tractor or truck that can be used to provide power to an attachment or separate machine. ... A cut-away model of a torque converter A torque converter is modified form of a hydrodynamic fluid coupling, and like the fluid coupling, is used to transfer rotating power from a prime mover, such as an internal combustion engine or electric motor, to a rotating driven load. ...


On 8' long bed models the fuel tank capacity is 38 gallons and the 6.75' short bed models are 29 gallons. Depending on models the optional trailer tow hitch receiver comes with a 2" or 2.5" Class V receiver and 4- &/or 7-pin wiring harness in either 12,500 or 15,000 lbs. All Super Dutys come with a Towing Package standard that includes an external oil and transmission coolers installed regardless if the factory hitch receiver was ordered or not. Depending on model and options, the empty title curb weight is 6,000-8,000 lb. The various pieces of a tow hitch (also known as a tow bar) are as follows (as seen on cars and non-industrial trucks). ... Kerb (sometimes mis-spelled as curb by Americans) weight is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (such as motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel and not loaded with either passengers or cargo. ...


Approximate payload capacities are 3000 lb for the F-250 Super Duty, 4000 lb for the F-350 Super Duty with Single Rear Wheels (SRW), and 5800 lb for the F-350 Super Duty with Dual Rear Wheels (DRW). This generation of Super Duties has exactly double the payload capacity as compaired to the older traditional (non-Super Duty) F-250 & F-350 trucks. By direct American comparison to the F-250 SD the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/GMC Sierra 2500HD is rated at 2600 lb max and the Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty is rated at only 2100 lb max payload capacity. In cargo transport, the payload is the valuable contents of the vehicle. ...


Approximate towing capacity for the F-350 Super Duty is 19,200 lb max. By direct American comparison Dodge Ram 3500 Heavy Duty is rated at 16,400 lb max and Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 3500HD is at 16,500 lb max. Towing is the process of pulling or drawing behind a chain or line. ...

After investing $65 million in the Kentucky plant on various upgrades and modernizations, Ford began production of the 2008 Super Duty trucks on December 18, 2006. However, the truck didn't go on the market until January 2007. The vehicle had its first official showing at the Texas State Fair in 2006. is the 352nd day of the year (353rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... For the Manfred Mann album, see 2006 (album). ...


This 3rd generation of Super Duty includes the F-250 Super Duty (starting at $22,380), F-350 Super Duty (starting at $24,025), and the all new F-450 Super Duty (starting at $39,205). The F-250 & F-350 Super Duty basically has the same payload and towing specs as the last generation.


The model lineup for the F-250 & F-350 Super Duty is the XL (starting at $22,380), XLT (starting at $26,065), Lariat (starting at $31,785), FX4 (starting at $33,625), and the King Ranch (starting at $37,970).


The new FX4 model, which was once just an optional Off Road 4x4 package that could be added to any model in the lineup, is now replaced by the 4x4 Off Road Package. The all new FX4 is now considered a model of its own. It still has the same specs as the previous generation but with more of a sporty trim package included.


The model lineup for the F-450 Super Duty is the XL (starting at $39,205), XLT (starting at $44,980), and the Lariat (starting at $47,660).


The same 2 gas engines are carried over and rated exactly the same from the 2nd generation. The 3-valve 5.4L V8 SOHC is standard. The 3-valve 6.8L V10 SOHC is still a $600 option over the 5.4L V8.


The diesel option is the new 4-valve Navistar 6.4 L V8 OHV Power Stroke twin-turbo diesel (PSD) engine (350 hp & 650TQ) with cast iron block & heads is a $6,895 option over the 5.4L V8. The diesel engine utilizes Ford’s Clean Diesel Technology, which includes a high-pressure, common-rail fuel system, Piezo-electric fuel injectors and an advanced Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) system. Ford claims that the new diesel systems reduce particulate output by more than 90% and allow the engine to post emissions numbers comparable with gasoline engines. Safety product recall 07S49 was released on March 23, 2007 that addresses the potential for flames to come from the tailpipe of the International equipped 6.4L diesel trucks. This problem arises from the tightening new diesel engine Federal Emissions standards starting 1/01/2007, requiring the use of an exhaust after-treatment system. A PCM recalibration has been released to eliminate the possibility of excessive exhaust temperatures combined with certain rare conditions resulting what is becoming known as a "Thermal Event". A product recall is a request to return to the maker a batch or an entire production run of a product, usually due to the discovery of safety issues. ... Emission standards limit the amount of pollution that can be released into the atmosphere. ...


Located near the same dash area as the last generation (but slightly to the right & more directly below the radio), this generation of Super Duty has the same Ford TowCommand TBC (Trailer Brake Controller) and 4 AUX Upfitter switches as the last generation set-up. The $230 optional Ford Motor Company TowCommand integrated TBC (Trailer Brake Controller) is only available and compatible on the extra-heavy duty commercial Ford Super Duty line of trucks starting with the 2005 models. ... A Trailer Brake Controller (TBC) is usually an aftermarket installed device or module that is mounted to the tow vehicles drivers side dashboard area that engages your trailer’s braking system proportional to you’re tow vehicles brake engagement when slowing down or coming to a halt. ...


For all 4x4 models, the transfer case 4x4 LOW range has a gear reduction of 2.42:1.


Another notable feature is an optional concealed slide-out step and swing-up hand grab bar in the rear tailgate to allow easier access.


Ford introduces its all new optional "Rapid-Heat Supplemental Cab Heater," only available on Super Duty trucks with the Diesel engine and TorqShift automatic transmission. In the winter, it quickly raises the cabin temperature to a comfortable level until the engine is warm enough to handle the job.


Some unique points to highlight of the all new F-450 with a regular production pickup bed, which was only offered as a chassis cab before. It has 2 available axle ratios of 4.30 & 4.88:1. The F-450 Super Duty with the optional 'High Capacity Trailer Tow Package' increases the GCWR (Gross combined weight rating) from 26,000 to 33,000 lb. Maximum payload is 6120 lb. Maximum towing is 24,500 lb. It comes standard with Crew Cab, 8' long bed, DRW (Dual Rear Wheels), Limited Slip rear axle, 10-lug 19.5" wheels, Trailer Tow package, and the TowCommand TBC (Trailer Brake Controller). The only engine offered in the F-450 Super Duty will be the all new 6.4 L V8 Power Stroke twin-turbo diesel.
