2011 F-250/F-350/F-450 SD Pickups Preview: Emissions Friendly

The 2011 F-Series Super Duty® will be the cleanest Ford truck diesel ever. It uses Diesel Exhaust Fluid to meet the strict 2010 calendar year diesel emissions requirements. Some key features include:

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is injected into the exhaust system, to greatly reduce harmful NOx levels
DEF is a solution of approximately 1/3 high-purity urea in demineralized water that is clear, non-toxic and is safe to handle
DEF tank and fill nozzle are located together with the diesel fuel tank and fill on the driver’s side of vehicle and requires refilling at oil change intervals
If the DEF tank reaches 1000 mile distance to empty level, a instrument cluster warning alerts the driver
DEF will be available from dealerships, major auto parts chains, and gas stations

Package Contents Long Box only 172" WB

bed floor

Why the 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Trailer
Hitch Prep Package Is Important
● Customers no longer need to rely on the aftermarket for
their 5th-wheel/gooseneck trailer hitch

– Corrosion protection could be limited with an
aftermarket installation since holes are drilled into
the bed sheet metal and not always painted

5th-wheel and gooseneck hitch kits rated at 25,000 lbs.
and with modified Reese® Signature Series hitch kits
● Patented “drop-in” gooseneck hitch ball can be

reaching into the wheelhouse to lock or unlock the ball
● The hitch prep package and any related Ford Custom
Accessories can be included in the vehicle price
and financing
Key Things to Remember
● Super Duty customers rely on their truck for its capability
and are very knowledgeable about towing hitches and
towing accessories — this package and the towing
accessories are an opportunity for you to provide what
they need right at the dealership
● The hitch prep package may not be compatible with a
customer’s current hitch or accessories, so be sure
to determine if they intend to use their current equipment

SOUNDS TEMPTING, well maybe not
What I've seen in competitors versions of 'roll stability' is a system that when you panic and over correct ,the steering wheel basically disengages momentarily. It's not even a true steering column anymore. A fly by wire set up. What happens when you coming down Wolcreek pass into the turns and the sensors fail???
Also when the urea tank empties does a dash light come on or because its empty and in direct violation of some new EPA laws, put the engine into limp mode so you can get it to the side of the road....? safely, of course
