Ford has unveiled the 2015 F-Series Super Duty pickups at the State Fair of Texas. The 2015 F-Series Super Duty gets a new 6.7L V8 turbo diesel engine, more towing capability and a restyled King Ranch model.
The 6.7L turbo diesel debuted in 2011 and since then Ford says it has listened to customers and is now debuting the second-generation of the diesel engine. One of the big changes is a new larger GT37 turbocharger that replaces the GT32 model giving the engine more horsepower and torque. Other upgrades to the engine include a new fuel pump and injectors, improved camshaft design, a new five-layer head gasket to handle wider range of engine firing pressures and piston assembly upgrades to increase load-bearing capability.
The 2015 F-450 also gets a strengthened frame, suspension and new commercial-grade 19.5-inch wheels. Ford has also updated the F-Series Super Duty King Ranch edition, which gets upgrades like a lighter, richer shade of Mesa leather trim for the seats, center console lid, armrests and steering wheel. Exterior updates include the new, darker Caribou paint for the wheel lip moldings, bumpers and lower body. The bed rail caps, bumper caps and running boards are executed in black. The Running W brings focus to the wheel caps as well.
