About the F-450

The Ford F-450 is a full-size pickup truck that is found under the Ford Super Duty Range. The Super Duty range holds the larger pickup truck models found within the F-Series. It has been in production since 1999.

During its time on the market, there have been four generations released. The latest version debuted in 2017.

The F-450 falls between the F-350 and largest models in the range, the F-550 and F-600 models. However, it is the largest pickup truck sold by Ford, as the larger versions are sold exclusively as chassis cabs.

Like the rest of the Super Duty range, there is a huge array of customization made possible by Ford. These options include everything from box length, wheelbase length, and trims. Ford also offers single and dual-rear-wheel drivetrains.

Most of the competition for the F-450 comes from similar models from Dodge’s Ram Trucks division and Chevrolet. These consist of the RAM 4500HD and Silverado 4500 HD respectively.

Trim options consist of several levels. Ford offers the base XL, followed by the XLTl, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and the top-tier Limited edition.

There has not yet been a high-performance Raptor version, unlike some other models in the F-Series range.

There are only two powertrains offered for the latest version of the model, one petrol and one diesel. These are either a 7.3-liter V8 or a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel. These have been mated with a TorqShift 10-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission.

To account for the heavy towing and carrying capacity required for this type of heavy-duty pickup truck, the older models also feature relatively large engines in both petrol and diesel powertrains.
