The excellent towing capabilities can be credited to the Super Duty’s powerful engines. The 34,000-pound towing capacity is achieved when the Super Duty is equipped with the available 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine, which generates 440 horsepower and an amazing 925 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Ford Super Duty is also offered in the standard 6.2L V8 FFV engine (385-hp and 430 lb-ft of torque), which features a Fail-Safe Engine Cooling system. Both engines are paired with the smooth and efficient TorqShift heavy-duty six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Also, for starting the Super Duty on steep and slippery grades, it comes standard with Hill Start Assist.
