SEMA 2009: 2011 Ford Super Duty DeWALT Contractor Concept Could be a Transformer


The truck isn't even for sale yet, but Ford shipped one of its new Super Duty pickups to tool maker DeWALT, to build a custom work vehicle for the 2009 SEMA Show. The simply massive truck gets special items like a winch, special cargo compartments on the outside of the truck's bed and even a small crane designed to move heavy cargo (like a generator) into and out of the bed.

It looks more like something that might be in a Transformers movie which makes it a perfect fit for the SEMA Show.

Along with all these custom goodies, the DeWALT concept also gets everything that will make the 2011 Super Duty the leader in the big truck class, including an all-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 with a new 6R140 heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission with Ford's SelectShift function so drivers can choose gears just like on a manual transmission. This new tranny also gets a Tow Haul option with integrated engine exhaust braking.

Another amazing feature is what Ford calls Live Drive PTO (Power Take Off), which allows auxiliary equipment like snowplows or salt spreaders to be powered through the transmission. Ford is the first company to bring this technology over from agricultural machines.

Of course, the Super Duty will also get a long list of Ford's impressive truck technology, like Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Trailer Sway Control, Trailer Brake Control and, of course, Ford's AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.

In addition Ford will offer it's exclusive Ford World Solutions program which now comes with a 4.2-inch LCD screen between the truck's gauges, which will display relevant information to the driver about things like fuel-economy or the status of the fifth wheel hook-up.
