When it comes to popular truck models, few can hold a candle to the models that have rolled off the assembly line as part of Ford’s F-Series. Since the first Ford F-1 was produced in 1948, known as the Ford Bonus-Built, this line of trucks has proven itself popular for both its abilities to do the work that a truck is expected to do and for the look of it. The introduction of the F-150 in 1975, done in part to get around emissions requirements that would be changing soon, revolutionized the truck industry and soon became one of the most popular truck models in the world. Over the years, the company has developed a number of innovations and add-ons that have proven popular with the truck buying public. In recent years, Ford has promoted other models in the F-Series line including the F-250 and F-350, each with their own qualities that make them perfect for specific types of truck buyers. First introduced in 1987, the F-450 was initially known as the F-Super Duty and was the most heavy duty of all of Ford’s trucks. Here we will take a look at the 2008 edition of the Ford F-450.
The official name of the model is the 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty DRW Long Bed Crew Cab Pickup. This popular and heavy duty truck comes equipped with a turbo compressor and a 6.4 liter V-8 engine that gives it plenty of power and strength to get almost any job done. Everything about the vehicle is heavy duty, from its battery and alternator to its 38 gallon diesel fuel tank. These trucks are not like the heavy duty trucks from days gone by as they are some of the cleanest looking high performance work trucks around. With its full rear bench seat and standard doors, the crew cab is large enough to comfortably transport the biggest workers around and getting in and out is not a problem either. With great additional features like full stereo system and CD player along with a navigation system, the interior of the F-450 is more like a luxury sport utility vehicle than a work truck. This is easily one of the most comfortable rides available in any heavy duty work truck currently offered on the market. The safety ratings for the vehicle are top notch also and the massive towing capacity will come in handy for anyone that needs to make use of it.
While there are other trucks on the market, few are as popular as Ford’s F-Series trucks and with good reason. Ford’s engineers have been able to do the unthinkable and provide plenty of comfort and modern features, while not taking their eyes of functionability for a moment. The biggest jobs in the outdoors often need to be performed with the use of a truck and there are few heavy duty trucks that can match up to the power, comfort and usefulness of the Ford F-450. Ford’s big daddy of trucks outshines all other heavy duty trucks on the market.
