2018 Ford Super Duty Walk Around


Handsome and functional, Ford’s Super Duty might appear less assertively masculine than trucks of the past. A more utilitarian approach to design represents distinct balance between comfort and visual flair.

C-shaped headlights flank the grille, which contains chromed power bars. Bold Super Duty identification is stamped into the hood. Bodysides are highlighted by sheetmetal creases.

Like other full-size pickups, Regular Cab models have two doors. On SuperCab trucks, narrower half-doors provide back-seat access. Crew Cab pickups have four conventional, front-hinged doors.

Interior

Regardless of trim level, heavy-duty Fords look smart inside, linked to the lighter-duty F-150.

On the whole, interior designers focused on substance over style, acknowledging that most trucks are intended for work rather than show. Thus, vinyl is the preferred upholstery for low-end versions. Yet, cabins in upper trim levels can approach the poshness level of a luxury automobile.

Front seats provide welcome comfort in each Super Duty. CrewCab trucks promise sufficient room for a 6-footer to sit directly behind a passenger of comparable height. As expected, rear-seat space isn’t quite as voluminous inside a SuperCab.

In top trim levels, such as the King Ranch, leather covers the dashboard as well as the seats. Lower trim levels turn to durable cloth and scratch-resistant plastics. Making a practical decision, Ford offers vinyl flooring on every Super Duty truck.

All four-door models have a folding rear seat, for improved in-cab storage. A deep, wide center console helps provide ample capacity.
