f450 ?

My dad is looking at ordering a 15 f450. It will prob be a lariat or kr. My question is, are the 450 trucks setup win less power. Seems like I read that the older ones were . I haven't really found an answer on the 15s yet. Thanks

Ok. I think that's what I read but was unsure if they may have just carried that over to the others.

Same power, but I'm pretty sure the speed is limited due to the tires.

Speed is limited, I want to say 87 or 90 mph. It is due to tires but I suspect may ultimately the owner may not wish to go that fast given the suspension .

These things can always be defeated. I am using it to tow a Voltage 3950 toy hauler and I believe my Continental J-rated tires have a 78 mph top speed.

The tires are rated for 87mph. We'll see what the truck is actually governed at.

Also, ford says the there will be an F-450 specific powerstroke engine calibration, but it'll have the same 440/860 rating. Know one seems to know what the special calibration is about.

From what I heard, the whole reason Ford turned the F-450 into a F-350 Tow Boss in 2011 was because people complained about not being able to exceed 81 mph.

Some jackasses have to ruin it for everybody I guess.
