A colleague of ours recently filled us in on the details of a new bulldozer he’d tested (we hang with a diverse crowd), a $600,000 machine that weighs in at about 30 tons and can literally move mountains. Sure, they need to be blasted into smaller, moveable chunks of earth first, but you get the idea. What makes this interesting is that the 2011 Ford Super Duty, the truck you’ll be able to buy right off your dealer’s lot later this spring, has more available power than that overgrown Tonka. An extra 16 lb.-ft. of twist and 155 horses, to be exact.
Delivering up to 735 lb.-ft. of torque, Ford’s redesigned rig uses impressive engine specs and class-leading capability in an attempt to maintain its grip on the heavy-duty truck crown. Rounding out this effort is a slew of new technologies that, from our perspective, creates a 2011 Super Duty sporting equal parts comfort, functionality, and efficiency.
