#13 of 400 What is Ford THINKING!?! 2007 Superduty
May 09, 2006 (6:35 pm)
Check out the 2007 Ford F-250 and F-350 Superduty. What is going on inside of Ford? The headlights are ( straight shout out from a Ford truck enthusiast and superduty owner ), UGLY!
The rear end is like an F-150 with the Ford oval in the middle. The tail lights have been turned so the reverse light is on top. That is something a Japanese car company would do. Where does it say "F-250" or "F350" on the tailgate?
The interior is like the F-150 and looks cheesey and cheap compared to the 2006. Ford is not doing a great job on redesigning the Superduty trucks. Spreading the fog lights is a bad idea. Where they shine is where theres already light.
Plus, the headlights are on the bottem and the parking light on top. Thats a crappy Chevy idea.
Keeping them as the 2006 is a great look for the truck. Or how about changing them back to the 1990 style headlights? Ford is turning the Superduyt truck into a "pansie" lookin truck on the inside and just wrong on the front and rear ends. At least the sides haven't changed!
#14 of 400 wrong model year
May 09, 2006 (8:26 pm)
The 2007 Superduty is unchanged from the '06 moel year. The design change that you are describing is for the '08 model year which will be out early '07 as an '08. I believe they are expecting January as the month it will debut. This also ties in with the new powerstroke that will obsolete the 6.0.

Ford says the re-designed superduty will be out fall 2006. The 6.4 diesel will make 350HP and 650 ft-lbs torque. I still say the 7.3 litre should have never been erased from the newer Ford trucks.

I like the the look of the new superduty look. I've had 6 superduty. In 03 my 6.0 was crap and ford bought it back. My 04 6.0 has not given problem in 100000km

Me and my buddy just bought '06 p-strokes He got a 350, I took a 250, both Lariats They totally rock, He did tromp on the pedal and blew the hose out that connects to the turbo charger, but ford replaced it, other than that this truck is the shit. We have had no problems. I hate the look of the new super duty, It looks like a chevy. I would buy an 07 now, you can get good deals. I hate the dodge and the chevy. All my buddys have the Ford. Last year I was hunting in the mts. with 2 guys who had a dodge. It sucked in the rugged terrain.

The new-look Super Duty is a 2008 model, not a 2007 model.

I have the new issue of "truck trend" and the 08 is in there. My opinion on the new truck is the headlights are upside down and they really made the grill ugly by stretching it too much towards the window. The interior is nicer than my '06 but I wanted it like the 1/2 ton which has always been nicer than the HD's. But I cant wait for the real hp and torque #'s from the twin turbo 6.4ltr. the #'s are only an estimate of what they may be. I know people who put twins on dodges and the hp is more like 400 hp and 710 ft lbs. in spring 08 I will wait to see if they grow on me enough to buy one. In my eyes the 06 I have has an exterior that is styled nice with black paint, chrome pkg and lariat interior pkg. The 06 and 07's body styles are better than the 08's....well front end any ways.

The 2008 Super Duty's unique reverse-stacked headlamps place the high beam under the running lamps and turn signals making them more compatible with other vehicles and reducing unwanted glare.
#21 of 400 New 6.4 liter twin-turbo V-8 with piezo fuel injectors
Oct 15, 2006 (1:44 pm)
The new 6.4 liter twin-turbo diesel is manufactured for Ford by International Truck and Engine Corp and makes 350 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The new V-8 uses a state-of-the-art piezo fuel injection system.
#22 of 400 New Design
Oct 15, 2006 (1:49 pm)
The 2008 F-Series Super Duty's side vents, a design inspired by the TONKA concept truck, dissipate engine compartment heat and designate what type of powertrain lies beneath the hood; red for diesel, black for gasoline.
F-450 Lariat Crew Cab
The 2008 Ford F-Series Super Duty's patented, hydroformed body structure is made up of two high-strength steel side rails that are welded to the bulkhead and frame. They not only serve to create a very rigid foundation, but the system's modular construction eases assembly and delivers a more dimensionally accurate truck.
The 2008 Ford F-Series Super Duty's frame features a fully boxed front section that has been optimized for safety. The unique front frame horn design lowers the frame by seven inches meeting vehicle compatibility standards without the need for a blocker beam. The design also provides improved vehicle cooling as well as a solid footing for the hydroformed body structure.
