Saw test drive of Superduty on First Drive: 2008 Ford Super Duty

Ford introduced its latest, burliest Super Duty pickups in a trial by fire and ice. The ice was in the form of a storm that closed south Texas highways and airports, and the fire was courtesy of the shotguns the Blue Oval boys provided for journalists to mercilessly slaughter clay pigeons. Shotguns not only smoke impressively in cold weather, but the warm barrel works as a hand warmer!

Full credit to Ford for having the guts to order up an ice storm for truck testing. Full-size pickup truck manufacturers will go to no end in search of new gimmicks designed to reinforce the impression of tough capability for their trucks. Pull locomotives? Done. Dropped from the sky? Done. Churn through mud in slow-mo? Done

Sounds like a real nice truck. The electric heater to get warm faster is cool. For what we pay for these things I still dont understand why we cant get some of the cool things you can get in a Caddy or Lincoln like rain sensing wipers air con seats, auto high beam dimmer?

Thank you for the article.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*
