The 2018 Ford F-150 and the Ford Super Duty are two worthy choices to consider when selecting your next pickup truck. The following is a quick comparison to help you determine which of the two models will best suit your needs and preferences.

 

Capability

 

The 2018 Ford F-150 is the most capable truck in its class with a maximum towing capacity ranging from 5,000 to 13,200 pounds, depending on how you configure it, and with a maximum payload of 1,485 to 2,311 pounds.

The Super Duty’s maximum payload is a whopping best-in-class 7,630 pounds. Conventional max towing is 21,000 pounds, but throw in a fifth wheel and you can tow up to 27,500 pounds. This vehicle yields a best-in-class 34,000-pound gooseneck tow rating, when equipped with this accessory.

 

Efficiency

 

One of the major tradeoff of such capability is efficiency. For everyday use, the 2018 Ford Super Duty will be more expensive to run than the F-150, which is impressively economical for a pickup truck. The F-150 Lariat, for instance, is rated at an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.* While mileage is not available for the Super Duty model, Ford has equipped this beast with such a stalwart powertrain that it’s a small price to pay for the dose of fuel it will require.

 

Adaptability

 

One of the benefits of both the 2018 Ford F-150 and Super Duty is that they are both extensively customizable for a variety of needs. Both are available with a number of different cabs, wheelbase lengths, bed sizes, trim levels and packages, giving you all the flexibility and adaptability to get the truck you need at an affordable price.
