2015 Specs

Local dealer said that the "source book" for the 2015's would arrive in March. From Ford Media Web Site - posted by Ford on March 5th

New 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty Will Deliver Best-in-Class Horsepower, Torque and Towing Capacity

Second-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel boosts horsepower to a class-leading 440 horsepower; torque to class-leading 860 lb.-ft. for all models

F-450 chassis upgrades raise maximum gooseneck trailer towing capacity to class-leading 31,200 pounds, fifth wheel towing capacity to class-leading 26,500 pounds, and gross combined weight rating to a class-leading 40,000 pounds

F-350 available with maximum towing package that increases fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailer towing capacity to 26,500 pounds, and raises the gross combined weight rating to 35,000 pounds

Payload will be 5,440 lb on the F-450 and 6670 lb on the F-350 dually

The High capacity tow package on the F-350 has an MSRP of $400 and includes a wider front axle, like they offered on the F-350 in the early 2000's.

Trailer hitch towing capacity for both will be 19,000 lbs.

Power Stroke Engine Improvements

The 2015 Super Duty achieves best-in-class towing performance with a second-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine that was further developed to provide more power, torque and efficiency.

“The 6.7-liter Power Stroke was already a stout engine,” said Robert Fascetti, Ford vice president powertrain engineering. “The improvements we’ve made essentially give Super Duty customers an engine designed for our larger F-650 and F-750 trucks. They may not realize how tough this engine really is.”

Key innovations on the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel are its compacted graphite iron engine block and reverse-flow layout. This segment-exclusive design places the exhaust inside the engine’s V-shape, with while the air intake positioned on the outside resulting in a variety of advancements:

Shorter airflow from the exhaust system to the new, larger turbocharger sitting between the engine’s cylinder banks improves turbo responsiveness – key to providing torque quickly to truck customers when they need it most
Positioning the turbo inside the engine’s valley helps isolate the engine’s hottest temperatures, improving performance and efficiency, while also reducing noise, vibration and harshness to improve driver comfort


Chassis improvements

The F-350 is available with a high-capacity towing package that includes new front springs and a wide track axle, increasing the gross combined weight rating with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine from 31,900 pounds to 35,000 pounds.

Improvements to the F-450 that allow it to handle the increased tow rating include commercial- grade 19.5-inch wheels and tires; upgraded rear U-joints and suspension components, including new rear leaf springs; front and rear stabilizer bars; and shocks. The steering system has stronger gears and linkages and the fifth-wheel/gooseneck has an increased towing capacity. The brakes are larger and feature new antilock calibration for enhanced performance.

I found this info on some of the changes being made:

Enhancements to Ford Power Stroke diesel include:

-A larger GT37 turbocharger that replaces the previous GT32 model, enabling
more airflow to the engine to produce more power beyond today's 400 horsepower and 800 lb.-ft. of torque.

-The wastegate and the wastegate controls are eliminated, because the turbo operates at lower peak pressures than the GT32.

•Ford-designed and -engineered 6R140 TorqShift® six-speed transmission uses a new torque converter to manage increased horsepower and torque
•New polymer coating on main bearings for improved wear-and-tear durability and lower friction
•Improved crankshaft fillet design – the transition point between the crankshaft's journals – to increase crankshaft power carrying capability
•Increased crankshaft damper weight to reduce rotating forces on the crankshaft when the engine is performing at peak power levels
•New five-layer head gasket to handle wider range of engine firing pressures resulting from more powerful engine performance
•Added material to the engine's cylinder heads, exhaust manifold and valvetrain to handle increased power levels
•Redesigned turbo oil and cooling lines to improve sealing
•Piston assembly upgrades to increase load-bearing capability
•New four-layer exhaust manifold gasket for improved durability

F-450 enhancements:

•Úpgraded rear driveline Ú-joints
•Úpgraded suspension components, including new rear leaf springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and shocks
•Increased fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailer capacity
•Stronger §teering gears and §teering linkages
•Larger brakes shared wîth Super Duty chassis cab models, including wheel brakes, parking brake and new antilock brake calibration
•F-450-specific Power Stroke diesel engine calibration

Wonder if parts like turbo will be interchangeable to prior models.

I honestly don't know. I thought I'd read someone's post that indicated about a $1K price increase (excluding impact of rebates etc.) but i didn't price out a similar 2014.

I have a 2012 F350. I had originally planned on ordering a 2013, but my 6.0 had different thoughts. There were changes on the '13 I wished I had like the upgrade in the brakes. I'm in The San Francisco Bay Area, so deleting is not an option. So I think for piece of mind and the added upgrades that have happened since 2012, I'm going to sell my 2012 and order a 2015. I'm going to wait until my dealer has one on the lot so I can test drive it and also time to let the turbo have some time on the roads.
