Vehicle2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.7L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
ReviewReplacement for 2008 F-450.
In pulling 20,000 horse trailer, 2011 gets 10+ mpg vs 7 mpg.
Difference in power/torque is remarkable with the new engine.
Unloaded ride is much better with the smaller, non-commercial tires that came on the 2008.
Unloaded highway mileage is 16+ mpg vs 12 in the 2008.
Only have 800 miles on truck, so mileage should climb, once broken in.
Best FeaturesFord Sync system with real-time weather info, which displays color radar info and wind direction/velocities on the navigational map is extremely helpful in pulling high profile trailers.
Worst FeaturesBetter security system to prevent professional thieves from "popping the door lock" to gain access to truck.
