We have to give General Motors a pass right now since the next-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra will hopefully catch up. But, right now, Ford is on top with its F-Series Super Duty, reported Ford Authority.
Ford stole away Ram’s power and towing capacity crowns with an update to the truck’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine. The engine now makes an extra 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque for a total of 450 hp and 935 lb-ft. Recall, the Ram 3500 makes 930 lb-ft, which was on top of the segment since this past August.
And that leaves Chevrolet and GMC in a distant third. Despite the updated 6.6-liter Duramax L5P diesel V8 engine, it still makes just 910 lb-ft of torque and can pull 22,000 pounds with a fifth-wheel trailer. Ford’s updated Super Duty will pull 34,000 pounds with an identical setup, thanks to the new F-450 4×2 dual-rear-wheel Super Duty. Ram’s 3500 will tow 30,000 pounds.
