2012 Ford F450 Truck
Benefits of Driving a 2012 Ford F450 Truck
The F-Series Super Duty trucks bear a resemblance to the ubiquitous, jack-of-all-trades F-150 pickups, but these models have an especially pure purpose: to reliably, safely and confidently haul heavy loads or heavy trailers, day after day. What's surprising is that these workhorses are actually quite comfortable--and almost luxurious--inside.
What's new for 2012?
Ford's commercial-oriented Super-Duty trucks pick up a number of additional features that make it even more useful to those who work hard hauling cargo or towing large trailers. The Super Duty's first factory-installed fifth-wheel and gooseneck towing substructure--for some of the heaviest towing needs--has been expanded to trucks with the 6.75-foot cargo box for 2012 and include an electrical connection on the bed side wall.
- Flexibility for commercial use
- tougher than standard full-size trucks
- class-leading tow ratings
- Power Stroke diesel's 800 pound-feet of torque
- full roster of safety features
The 2012 Ford Super Duty trucks are offered in F-250, F-350 and F-450 models, designating progressively higher tow and weight ratings. Compared to light-duty, full-size trucks, like the F-150, the Super Duty models have a stronger structure, along with heavy-duty components throughout and a powertrain lineup chosen for sheer pulling ability.
