Dare to Compare: 2018 Ford F-150 vs Ford Super Duty | Downers Grove, IL

The Ford F-150 is the best-selling pickup truck in America. The Ford Super Duty is its bigger, beefier counterpart, and while both are excellent pickup trucks, the one you want will depend on your needs. Here's how they compare.


In terms of performance, there's no question which truck takes the lead: the Ford Super Duty. With up to a maximum payload capacity of 7,630 pounds and maximum conventional trailering capacity of 21,000 pounds, the Super Duty comfortably beats the F-150. It can even tow up to 34,000 pounds when properly equipped with a gooseneck hitch.

That makes the 2018 Ford Super Duty the ideal truck for contracting and building jobs, and even for farming or management. That being said, if you need decent towing and hauling capability but not to the sheer degree that the Super Duty provides, then the 2018 Ford F-150 is likely your better bet, as it will still haul up to 3,270 pounds and tow up to 13,200 pounds all the while saving you on gas and on the starting price.

The 2018 Ford F-150 is also offered with five different engines compared to just two engines for the Super Duty, giving you more flexibility to tailor the truck to your needs and to your budget.


The 2018 Ford F-150's long list of trim levels and customization options, as well as its smaller footprint, make it the more comfortable of the two trucks, and the most ideal if you expect to be frequently driving in the city or in other narrow or congested areas. Nonetheless, you can find most of the F-150's comfort and technology features in the Super Duty, such as premium seats, the latest SYNC® infotainment system and active safety technologies - so you don't have to worry about sacrificing convenience for power by choosing the Super Duty.
