Ford F-450 Super Duty Vehicle Information
When people come to Greenway Ford in search of a pickup that can handle any hard work that comes its way, our response is to show them the powerful, bold, and surprisingly stylish 2018 F-450. As part of Ford’s bestselling F-Series Super Duty pickup line, the F-450 is more than capable of tackling any task.
When it comes to towing in Orlando, the F-450 has got you covered. Already able to pull bumper hitch trailers with the standard package, you can also choose to outfit this pickup with the available 5th-wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Tow package if that is what you require. Ford has made towing both safer and easier with the standard trailer sway control feature, which works by automatically applying precise braking and adjusting engine torque in the event you trailer begins to sway, thus allowing you to maintain control. The Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System utilizes six cameras to give you a 360-degree view around your vehicle. By selecting the view from different cameras, you can get a clear view of your ball and bed hitches, making hooking up to a trailer far easier. Also available for the F-450 is the Trailer brake controller with Smart Trailer Tow Connector, giving you more control and safer braking when hauling.
Regardless of what you are using your vehicle for, safety will always be an essential component. The 2018 F-450 is outfitted with the best in safety technology, including the standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC), a feature that aids you in keeping control of your vehicle by detecting any wheel slippage and tweaking the engine’s torque to rectify the problem. The SOS Post-Crash Alert System, also standard, will sound the vehicle’s horn and unlock the doors in the event of airbag deployment so that first responders can get to you more quickly. Should any of your tires should get low while driving around Orlando FL, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will notify you. Available safety features include the reverse sensing system, which aids you in backing up safely, and the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which notifies you if any vehicle enters your blind spots so that you can react accordingly.
The F-450 would not be a best-selling pickup without all the right components under the hood. Choice of engines depends on what you plan on doing with your truck. The 6.2 liter (L) two-valve V8 FFV gas engine provides you with 385 horsepower (hp) and 430 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. If you prefer a diesel engine, the 6.7 liter (L) Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel gets you 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque.
Whether you’re going to be filling the truck box with lumber or piling it full of tools while you haul, payload capacity is another crucial element to consider when shopping for your next pickup. While you will always get more cargo room with a 2x4, the new F-450 4x4 still gives you ample space to store your tools and other gear. With a Regular Cab eight-foot box, you will have 7,160 pounds (lbs) of cargo capacity. A SuperCab with a 6.75-foot box gets you 4,620 lbs, while the eight-foot box offers up 6,780 lbs. If you choose a Crew Cab, you’ll see 4,470 lbs of cargo capacity with a 6.75-foot box and 6,540 lbs with an eight-foot box. You can expand your truck bed with the foldable bed extender accessory, which helps out in those situations when you need every spare inch of extra room you can get.
People looking for a work truck also need versatility, and there are a lot of accessories you can choose from to make sure your F-450 is ready to go no matter what the task. The Box Link accessory, for example, which comes with 4 premium locking cleats, gives you additional tie-down locations in your truck bed, and also gives you additional organization options when it comes to storage.
The 2018 Ford F-450 is built to endure no matter what it is used for, and to that end it is a part of the most popular line of pickups in America. If you need a truck that can work and hold up to tough conditions, the F-450 is just what you have been looking for.
