Why a SuperDuty? Why not a 1/2 Ton?
Basing this question that I tow a 10,000 pound trailer on a monthly basis, travel 30,000 miles a year, spend alot of time on the highways and I really do love my PSD, my question is?
Why buy a Super Duty if you need to tow a 10,000 pound trailer?
Hear me out. It used to be if you needed to tow a heavy trailer (anything over 5000 pounds you bought a 3/4 or 1-ton truck. Simple fact. But now - Ford F-150 is advertising ability to tow 11,000 pounds and haul 3000 pounds. Toyota is claiming at least 10,800 pound trailer weight all day long. (this isnt supposed to be a bashing session on toyota or anyone else)
With diesel prices on average .40 - .80 / gal higher then gas - why buy a Super Duty to tow your 10,000 pound toys if that is all you really do? Why not save yourself the upcharge on the SD and diesel engine and just get the F-150?
