        I'd rather have the 2006 or earlier model truck. Not all that emission crap & will last longer with less repairs.

            Cannot believe the 2020s are dynoing 470 at the wheels!

              How much does that extra 50 ft/lb of torque cost me over the Ram?

                when 475hp doesn't sound like much, what a time to be lived.

                  Christmas wish list:
                  - 500 horse diesel
                  - 1,100 Lbs Torque
                  - F350 max tow and payload stats
                  - 10 year drive train warranty
                  - Base Price Diesel XL or XLT for 2020 - 50,000 bucks
                  - 72 month 1.99% cost of money

                    Andre - Ford pulls this bullshit every year. If you guys would stop pandering to them, you would have called Newman out by telling him to quit comparing the F450 to everyone else’s 350 or 3500 series. Totally different truck. The correct response is to have ford state their max towing, max load capacity of their F350 dually.

                      Cool it pulls 37k pounds 3 times and then starts to throw up smoke from poor injectors or a faulty EGR valve, pulled 3 times with a king ranch, never again.

                        With all three manufacturers offer 430+ horsepower and 1000+ ft-lb torque and well over 30,000 lb towing capacity, bragging about who exceeds that has become ridiculous. A small fraction of 1% of owners will EVER approach towing that much, let alone exceed it. And for those that do, a Kenworth, Mack, or Peterbuilt is a better choice. These will last longer and be much safer when towing such loads.

                                  A base or semi upgraded f550 would be cheaper than this civilian you can get a new one for 55-60k... this truck in the vid 75-90k...

                                            PowerStroke always shits on duramax. The Ford can literally out tow the chevy but over 10,000 pounds which is insane

Watch and see who's right. + That diesels pressure waves will destroy that transmission and all mounts because nobody knows anything anymore. Fk those engineers! I am a better one sosukit.

The last gen Superduty frame twisted under it's own weight, Unlike the Ram/chevy 's which have had boxed High strength steel frames for a few years. Here's a few Videos showing what I'm talking about.

                                                                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKMQjm7i2Jw

                                                                I've Only seen Fords with bent / cracked frames (maybe it's the salt in the Northeast and their Poor rust protection). Maybe it's the Dumb customer that Believe the Ford Hype "Ford Tough" and abuse them...That's debatable.

                                                                I've Worked for Ford in the past (Ford Factory certified Tech.) so I've seen alot of different models/trims and TSB/recalls on them. I've also have multiple friends that have towing / landscaping companies and work for the municipality and they have had issues with the too.


                                                                7.3 was a great engine with only 2 or 3 design flaws. 6.0/6.4 had bigger issues and My buddies 6.7L tow truck (bought the 1st year they were out) was at the dealer 3 times in 20K miles with engine trouble. Ford will workout the "Bugs" with updates (gen2, gen3) redesigns.


                                                                DWP near me have stopped buy the Diesel Ford and started buying either Gas F-350s or Chevy diesels. Most of the landscapers I know have switched from the fords to the Rams... less problems.

We run accidents so we have the mega chip and the new one (for for what's it called) , these engines never gave out on us 7.3 and 6.7 , one is 2015 already has over 300,000 miles on it! we tow wrecks, out here I've seen 6 chevys that broke there frame, and some dodge , never heard of a ford that broke there fram, maybe there transmission

I also can't understand why Ford keeps LYING in their Commercials/Campaigns with using F-450 payload/towing Numbers against 1 Ton Ram/Chevy pickups....Everyone knows it's BullSh*t and it just makes Ford look stupid.

Im just now slightly getting used to the 1500, but the 2500/3500s are ugly as sin, regardless if they have halogen or LEDs. At least Ford and Ram have been consistent in their design philosophy and not gotten crazy

                                                                  FWIW, im still holding out hope that someone can take a 2017 and up F450 and drop in a 6.7 Cummins with an Allison trans. Just to prove that its possible; dual CP3 pumps, FASS lift pump, no emissions junk, turbo-back exhaust, and enough torque to push the gooseneck tow rating to 50K lbs

Cab/ 6.7L powerstroke with 4.10 gears (they don't say if that is for the short bed or Long) has a Max Gooseneck/5th wheel rating of 35,750 lbs. That's a WHOPPING 250 lbs over the Chevy and 650 lbs. Over the Ram.


                                                                  FYI, Ford's 5th wheel options only go to 18k or 27,500 lbs. The Gooseneck "Option" is Order-able...They probably have to buy it from Reese or other towing equipment manufacturer. So from the Dealer... Chevy can tows the Most.

Interestingly I can't find any, hmm. I'd pay to see a video of this truck taking just shy of 8000lbs in the back. Ford where is that video? Prove these claims.

                                                                          It probably due to a low compression ratio , which has a big effect on torque. Probably also has a smaller Cam in relation to it's displacement Compared to Chevys 6.6 Or Rams 6.4.

                                                                          The Ram Makes the Most Hp / Liter of the 3 Big Gas Engines. ( If the 7.3 had the Same Hp / Liter it Would be 468 Hp)

                                                                          ( 7.3 would Make 513 Ft-Lbs if it Had the 6.6's Tq / Liter. )

                                                                          The 7.3L has the Lowest Hp & Tq Outputs / Liter of the 3.

                                                                          Sadly people automatically think small displacement boosted, ALWAYS means better MPG and that isn't true. If the boosted engine has to work hard often , like in magazine tests... The Big N/A engine more than often gets better MPG. Small Boosted Only gets better MPG when it's used mainly for highway cruising/ commuting. Boosted engines "ALWAYS" have to run Richer Air-fuel ratios than N/A motors. A good example below, the 5.0 coyote F150 making 20 more HP, got 1 mpg Higher than the 3.5L v6 Ecoboost in the same model/crewcab/4wd F150 truck during the towing test drive.

F-350 can't tow 37,000 lbs. FORD Lies in their advertisements, F-350 is in the 35,000<35,500 RANGE. F-450 are for commercial buyers, not residential.

Also the Truck would have to be registered to the GVWR. Most people register their trucks for less than max GVWR so if it exceeds the registered weight they could get ticketed for over-weight( if the cop wanted to be a D*ck). Ford Drivers are Notorious for Over-loading F150s to UNSAFE Levels, Why most old ones have bent frames and can be seen by the gap between the cab/bed being not even top to bottom.

Which is the laughable part about the "towing" war, the max tow-able weight for all three brands is only available in a truck configuration no one but fleets buy. People with family or who have people working with them don't buy regular cab trucks, they buy quad cabs which have lower towing and payload.
                                                                        To be fair Ford does have the most fleet trucks out of all three brands, so they get the fleet market really well.

I know that My townships Public works have moved away from ford diesels ( only buy the gas model if it's a FORD) and started buying more of the other brands Diesel trucks.
