Which Super Duty Model Should You Drive?

The hardest decision to make when it comes to buying a Ford Super Duty is deciding which model works best for your lifestyle. While you can't go wrong with any of the choices available, you may want to consider the best applicable uses for each Super Duty model. That's why we broke down different everyday tasks you may use your truck for and paired them with the best Super Duty model for the job. Take a look and see which Super Duty model works best for you!


If you need a truck with the best heavy towing-capacity available, you can't go wrong with the F-450. It'll give you the highest towing capability available on a Ford Super Duty, and it already comes standard with dual rear wheels (DRW). Another great option would be using the F-350 while adding on 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) and DRWs to make it comparable, but nonetheless, the F-450 is the way to go for the absolute highest towing capacity.

Every Ford Super Duty is equipped to handle large weights when hauling items in their truck bed. What's even better is that you also have the ability to customize the size of your truck bed in almost any Ford Super Duty with the choice between a Regular Cab, Crew Cab, or a SuperCrew Cab. The F-250 and F-350 work great for those casually transporting a friend's couch, or another set of tires, but if you're looking for a truck that can handle any size and weight, then the Ford F-450 with the highest gross vehicle weight class (GVWC) available is for you!

Driving in the City

While the F-450 proves itself to be one of the more power heavy-duty trucks in the Super Duty lineup, the F-250 still provides a great option for those looking to have a more powerful and versatile truck than the F-150 while driving around town. Its lighter build and smaller engine make it the most fuel-efficient option in the line-up, and an excellent choice for those who spend a lot of time driving in the city.


Every Ford Super Duty shares the same available options you can add to your truck. Each package comes with unique stylings and trims to make your Super Duty stand out on the streets, such as the XL Value package with bright chrome hub covers, centre ornaments, and chrome front/rear bumpers, as well as the FX4 Off-Road Package with a special box decal, tuned shocks, and transfer case.

Off-road Capability

Both the F-350 and F-450 are excellent choices for taking your Super Duty outside of the city and tackling some good ol' Alberta terrain. If you're solely looking to do some off-road adventuring without much work attached on the weekends, then the F-350 paired with intelligent 4WD is perfect for you. However, for those looking to do some really hard towing on top of driving outside of the city streets, then the F-450 paired with 4WD and DRW is more than enough to get the job done.

In summary, choosing any Ford Super Duty with the right equipment will work well with whatever it is you're planning. If you're only looking to casually tow and haul items outside of work, and still need something reliable, then the F-250 is your best choice. If you need a little bit of extra power, then a properly-equipped F-350 should do the trick--but the F-450 makes for the perfect choice when you need all the power you can get.
