2018 Ford F-Series Super Duty Limited
For the most demanding pickup truck customers, the 2018 Ford F-Series Super Duty works harder thanks to its newly upgraded 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 diesel engine offering best-in-class 450 horsepower and 935 lb.-ft. of torque

F-Series is now reporting 12 consecutive months of year-over-year increases, with top trim level Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited Super Duty pickups representing 49 percent of sales. Overall F-Series average transaction pricing gained $900 last month.

“The industry continues to operate at historically strong levels. We are seeing this with our F-Series trucks, which have now posted 12 consecutive months of year-over-year gains,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service. “The market continues to strongly favor well- equipped SUVs and trucks and our F-Series and new Expedition and Lincoln Navigator are capitalizing on this generational shift.”

Ford F-Series now marks 12 straight months of year-over-year gains, posting its best April performance since 2000 on total sales of 73,104 trucks

Though F-Series truck sales were strong for April, Ford’s U.S. sales for April totaled 204,651 vehicles, a 4.7 percent decline over April 2017.
