2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty Getting Upgrade to 800 FT-LBS of Torque


Already boasting class-leading payload and towing, Ford has now increased the 2011 F-Series Super Duty's engine output to ensure it has class-leading numbers in all areas. Originally launched with 390-hp and 735 ft-lbs of torque, Ford is upgrading the truck to deliver 400-hp and 800 ft-lbs of torque. Better yet, owners who already purchased one of the lower-output 2011 models will be able to get a free upgrade from their Ford dealer.

"These numbers are impressive, yes, but that is not why they matter," Samardzich said. "These numbers matter because our customers say they do. The higher torque means that fleet operators, such as Florida Power & Light, can plow through deep swamps and get to downed power lines faster and more confidently. It means that oil and gas crews in the Northwest can tow up an 8,000-foot grade maintaining a steady speed and using less fuel."

In addition, F-350 dual rear-wheel (DRW) models will get upgrades that include an increased max payload from 6,520 to 7,070 and a max fifth-wheel tow rating set at 22,600 lbs, up from 21,600 lb.

I wonder if the genius engineers can figure out how to get the tailpipe sniffers satisfied without choking off the engine and killing the mpgs.

Wow! Now we're talking! I think that's awesome that Ford is allowing previous customers to come in and get a free upgrade on their 6.7! So I'm assuming that it must be a software thing then? Which means.... as soon as we get ourselves some experienced tuners on the job, we'll probably be seeing massive increases in power just from tuning alone! Can't wait!
