2011 Ford Super Duty – Click above for high-res image gallery

We know a whole heck of a lot about Ford's new 2011 F-Series Super Duty pickup truck lineup, but there are a number of important details that we're still waiting to be revealed. For instance, we know that it will come with an optional 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 engine that's capable of running on B20 biodiesel, but we don't know how much power it will produce.

As is the case with most new model launches, we're pretty sure the 2011 Super Duty will cost more than the truck it replaces, but we don't know by how much. Or do we? According to a report from Automotive News, citing "a dealer and a source familiar with the program," the 2011 F-Series Super Duty will carry a base price of $28,995.

If true, that would put the new truck exactly $2,145 over the 2010 model's $26,850 asking price. If you'd like to add the powerful new diesel V8, you can tack on (according to our friends at PickupTrucks.com) about $6,500 $7,835 to that baseline amount. We contacted Ford for comment and got a, "We've not yet released pricing on the new Super Duty."

In any case, as with all heavy duty pickup trucks these days, expect options to drive up the price of the new behemoth from Ford into the stratosphere rather quickly. Will it be worth it? We'll know soon enough – expect a full report on the new HD hauler from us early next month.

      This is one fine looking truck. It looks like a truck! It looks like it means business.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Astounding Truck!!!!

      • 4 Years Ago
      Kind of a big jump in price but at least it isn't too severe. It's about $830 more than the 2010 Ram 2500 and about $1500 more than the 2010 Chevy/GMC. So that isn't too bad. And with that, the price doesn't bring any worries to Ford most likely.

      Needs more grille.

      Nice.

      Do you Americans not care AT ALL about pedestrian safety? Who would stand a chance against that front end, even at 5mph?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yes, "we" Americans think pedestrians only belong in one place. The hospital.
        • 4 Years Ago
        We believe pedestrians should look both ways before they cross the street, and if you can't see and hear a vehicle this size coming before it's right on you then you have no business walking the streets by yourself.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Unlike the rest of the world, we Americans tend to avoid standing in front of moving trucks.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Maybe where ever you are from has good pedestrians, but here in the US, pedestrians really abuse the fact that they can sue if you hit them. They don't even seem to care about the injury involved. I go weeks without seeing someone look both ways before crossing in a parking lot. I can't tell you how many times I end up sitting in front of a crosswalk while I let one person cross then others start crossing just as the first person is almost out of the way. It happens again and again, and before you know it, you've been sitting in front of a crosswalk in the mall parking lot for a full 5 minutes. I also love when they cross on the diagonal. I'm buring gas so you can walk more efficiently? **** you.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Nah
        • 4 Years Ago
        Maybe they should watch where they're going. It's hard to miss this thing coming at you.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Man, thats what i call a HUGE grille :P
        • 4 Years Ago
        That grill looks like the little magnet thingy that holds my closet doors closed.

        I think it looks like an updated, production version of the Super Chief concept from a few years ago, and having seen it in person, I liked it. I don't normally like HD pick-ups, but I like this one. I think it has a much fresher look than it's competitors.

        We'll see if I still feel that way when I find one jammed in to a compact parking space.

      In one of the instument cluster pics it shows "TBC Grain setting adjusted?" What is a grain setting and why does it need to be adjusted? I assume it is supposed to say "Gain" as it does lower on the screen. Guess spell check won't get that one. Somebody at Ford better wake up...
        • 4 Years Ago
        No, it doesn't make sense. Nice try though. A Grain is 1/7000th of a pound. Its supposed to gain. Trailer brake controllers cannot sense how hard you push the brake pedal, just whether you are pushing the pedal or not. The Gain is how much it "amplifies" the pedal signal to the trailer. You turn it up with a load on the trailer, and turn it down when you take the load off.

        TBC Grain Setting Adjusted.

        TBC = Tralier Brake Controller

        Grain = a unit of weight based on the weight.

        TBC Grain setting adjusted - Adjusting the weight you are pulling. In this case it has been adjusted.

        Make sense!

        Ha, I saw that to. We were wondering if they outsourced the programming....

      The Diesel Exhaust Fluid is supposed to cost about the same as a jug of windshield washer fluid. A tank full is supposed to last inbetween oil changes. The fluid itself does freeze at about -11C or 12F. The truck itself has a heated tank, lines and pump. The truck will give you numerous warning's when fluid is low but will eventually go into a limp mode if you repeatedly ignore the numerous warnings.The new diesel is also supposed to be significantly more fuel efficient then previous motors not to mention a lot easier to work on as far as getting serviced.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It is good to hear someone that isn't claiming the sky is falling. With the advanced notices the driver gets that the fluid is running low, I won't feel bad for anyone that is stupid enough to run it dry. They will have PLENTY of notice that the will need to refill it.

        Also, the advantages to running urea systems is that they can make more power and get better mpg than trying to meet the epa regs without it. Therefore, Ford and GM will have engines that make significantly more power and get better mileage than than Dodge. So, I think the small hassle of urea it is a more than fair tradeoff.

      I'm a FoMo fan. Respect the product. Could ya try ta keep a lid on the price increases?

      Did anyone see Bill Fords, Toyota sympathy comment? Stock owners must want to slap the silver spoon out of him.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think Ford's comments were very classy. They may be fierce rivals, but they are friends. If he had turned on him the press would have another one to lynch.

      I know the diesel version has some niche markets and some do need the extra torque a diesel provides!

      But with a $6,500 premium and if the new gas engine does have over 400 hp and torque, make mine gas, even if it loves gas!!!!!!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Obviously you have no need for a diesel truck, or you wouldn't have posted that. You're seriously comparing 400 lb-ft of gas torque to ~650 lb-ft of diesel torque? There's just no comparison - it's not only the quantity, but how it's produced. Diesels give you much more torque lower in the RPM range so you can get moving much easier. You might be able to pull close to what a diesel can in a gas, once you have a 4.10 ratio. Then you can look forward to 5 mpg.

        As to your repsonse to Charles Jackson

        Jim = What I was meaning to "Niche Market" even though the Diesel is a large market for Super Duty, pickups in general Diesel is not that big!!!!!!

        Girchy Girchy = I have business that relies on medium duty trucks, since the advent of 'Fuel Injection" I have better relaibliy of 'Gas Engines"!
        It impoved the maintence and the fuel milieage is not been much better with Diesel I have owned!We have two 1995 F700 7 litre gas engines with Allison Automatics Gross over 26,000lb, 190,000 miles no rebuild or bottom end, or turbo to worry about, fuel miliage is apox 6.5 loaded, we also had International same body and load, DT 466 fuel milieage 7.mph!
        Just go into any Ford, GM, Dodge dealership garage and ask any mechanic about the reliabity of the latter diesels! Dont get me wrong Class 8 tractor trailer Diesels are great, our Detroit 12.7 litre series 60 does a fine job!

      I hate how the front end is one big piece of chrome. Those chips will tally up quickly
