2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Updates
FLUSHING, Mich.- Delivering on their promise, Ford Motor Company has announced the much anticipated updates for the 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty at the Texas State Fair! To stay ahead of the competition, the 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty updates include a luxurious restyling of the 2015 F-Series Super Duty King Ranch, upgraded towing capability for the F-450, and most importantly improvements to Ford's 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine to boost performance, capability, and durability!
Good news for buyers, the second generation of automaker's Power Stroke V8 will be more powerful and more reliable. Super Duty engineers were able to drastically improve the big turbodiesel V8 with one simple change: a bigger turbocharger that is 8.5 millimeters larger in diameter than before! The larger turbocharger actually allows the Power Stroke to use less boost than before while making more useable power which eliminates the wastegate and associated controls. Overall, the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine becomes simpler and more reliable, though official power output has not yet been released but Ford has stated that it will make more than the current model's 400hp and 800 lb-ft. of torque.
Besides power, the updated Power Stroke V8 will provide some other benefits as well. Thanks to the turbocharger, high-altitude performance and engine exhaust braking are both improved. And to allow the engine to handle the extra power, Ford added a new torque converter for the six-speed automatic, new high pressure fuel pump and fuel injectors, and reduced friction on the engine's internals.
The 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Updates include the F-450 as well. With increased towing and hauling capability, the 2015 Ford F-450 also received a strengthened frame, heavy duty rear leaf springs, stronger shocks and stabilizer bars, and stronger brakes. The anti-lock braking system and 6.7-liter Power Stoke engine are both also re-calibrated. And with all that towing power, "commercial-grade" 19.5-inch wheels and tires are a necessity.
But for those interested in F-Series luxury, the updated 2015 Super Duty King Ranch boasts new upscale features. An even more luxurious interior features higher-quality Mesa leather on the seats, arm rests, steering wheel, and center console lid. The leather seats and center console lid are also branded with a more prominent "Running W" logo. But don't forget about the exterior which features "Running W" branded wheelcaps. The range-topping King Ranch exterior styling updates also include bumpers, lower body and wheel lip moldings now painted in metallic-brown "Caribou" paint.
