2011 Ford Super Duty Pricing Announced
These prices are around $2,000 dollars higher than the 2010 models, although Ford says that major upgrades like an all-new six-speed transmission will help power and fuel consumption numbers. Other details will be forthcoming closer to the official launch date.
There will also be a new Powerstroke diesel, and a 6.7 liter V8 that may be able to run on biodiesel to pique the interest of potential owners. That will reportedly add at least $6,500 to the purchase price of the truck.
If you need a heavy duty hauler, the Super Duty's may be worth checking out once they start arriving in showrooms over the next couple months. While the price is higher, Ford executives are hoping that a potential uptick in the construction market will fuel sales. If it doesn't, dealers may be more likely to negotiate.
