Welcome to F150Ecoboost.net , the premier Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum
dedicated to all Ford F150 Ecoboost owners and enthusiasts.
While researching F150 Ecoboost trucks on the Internet I noticed there wasn't one solid source of information for these new Ford Trucks. Sure, there are plenty of great F150 Forums that covered every make and model, but when it came to the new twin turbo F150 there wasn't a "goto place" for the information I was looking for. A few months later I purchased my first Ford Truck, a 2012 Ford F150 FX4 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost motor and F150Ecoboost.net was born! We aim to be a friendly, educational community dedicated to everything about the 2011-2013 F150 Ecoboost line of Ford Trucks.

Ford Motor Company has offered up a few news bits of information on the next generation Ford Super Duty pickups coming for 2017, including some numbers which makes the big Ford truck the most capable and the strongest in the heavy duty segment – with the F450 beating the Ram 3500 in towing, hauling and torque output. Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews.com.
The 2017 Ford F250, F350 and F450 will introduce the next generation of the Super Duty lineup and the key feature of those new heavy trucks is the lightweight aluminum body. This aluminum shell was first introduced on the new F150 pickup without any issues, so it makes sense that the lightweight body will move onto the larger trucks as well. As was the case with the F150, the lighter F250, F350 and F450 will all benefit from the lower curb weight with improved towing and hauling capacities, while stronger engines will make these new Ford pickups the strongest in the class.
Before getting into the ways in which the 2017 Ford Super Duty leads the different segments, a quick look at this comparison.
You will notice that in this piece, we are comparing the Ford F450 to the Ram 3500 and the GM 3500HD trucks. This is because for the consumer market, Class 3 is generally the top of the ladder, with a GVWR below 14,000 pounds. This class has traditionally included the Ford F350, the Ram 3500 and the GM 3500HD trucks, but a few years back, Ford moved their F450 into Class 3 – allowing them to lead over the 3500 trucks from Ram, Chevrolet and GMC.
Ram only offers their 4500 trucks in “chassis cab” form, whereas the F450 is offered with a bed in typical consumer-grade form. As virtue of the bed and the Class 3 listing – the F450 is able to go head to head with the Ram 3500 and GM 3500HD trucks.
The Ram 3500 will likely lead the 2017 F350, but under the GVWR classification system, the 2017 F450 will lead a handful of key categories in the Class 3 segment.
