The 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty would be the latter, a heavy-duty pickup available with a dual rear axle that can tow upwards of 21,600 pounds. To put that into perspective, things that weigh that much include five hippos, two killer whales and a 38-foot fishing trawler. Or just a really huge camper. But no matter what you plan on pulling or hauling, the F-350 is a serious machine for serious jobs. And with two new engines for 2011, it just got even more serious. Following up the changes made to the comparatively pedestrian Ford F-150, the F-350 gets a whole host of updates and upgrades. Minor tweaks were made to the exterior and there are welcome revisions to the climate controls, bringing them in line with the rest of Ford's new lineup (the double-DIN stereo faceplate remains). More importantly, though, Ford's twin I-beam suspension was enhanced to enable greater towing and payload capability, while also improving the ride (which nevertheless continues to be inherently stiff and bouncy when unladen). The steering gear is all-new, with Ford claiming improved response and on-center feel. The biggest changes, however, are under the hood. Standard is a 6.2-liter V8 good for 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, which represents a major improvement over the old truck's 5.4-liter V8 with 300 hp and 365 lb-ft. To get that 21,600-pound max tow rating, though, you'll need to opt for the new 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 that pumps out 400 hp and a colossal 800 lb-ft of torque (versus the previous 350 hp and 650 lb-ft). Both engines get a new six-speed automatic transmission and Ford says fuel economy has improved as well. Should the F-350's massive capabilities not be enough (say, you need to tow three killer whales), Ford is the only truck maker that sells something greater than a 350-series pickup: the F-450. For most consumers in need of a serious truck, though, the 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty is a fine choice, though the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD and 2011 Ram 3500 are definitely worth a look as well.
