The beloved Ford Motor Company was established in 1903. Soon after, their first release was the two-cylinder Model A semi, after which Ford quickly launched three new entries in succession: the two-cylinder models A and B, and the four-cylinder model F. Ford was quickly recognized as one of the best car makers in the country, and due to high demand, it sold more than 2200 vehicles in a year, which was a big, unheard-of number in the early 1900s. Taking a new step forward in the automotive industry, Ford came up with yet another bloomer—its most successful and most popular car yet—the model T car. Buyers instantly fell in love with this new machine for its design and performance. Ford canceled some of its previous lineups to focus on the model T. Today, Ford bestselling products come in the form of semi trucks. Listed below are the best Ford semi trucks that you should get your hands on this year:
Ford Raptor 2018
This beast has a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, puts out a horsepower of 450 and RPM of 5,000, and offers 510 pound-feet of torque. It runs on a four-wheel drive system, and all the power is channeled via the 10-speed automatic with magnesium paddle shifters. It might give you less mileage of around 15 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, which is decent if not the best. The Ford Raptor comes with the capitalist fuel filter. This truck is for somebody who needs the versatility of a pickup truck and who wants a commanding presence on the road while driving down the street.
The Ford Tuscany 2018 is a heavy-duty, single-rear-wheel semi truck that offers a lot of interesting features and options that go way beyond one’s expectations of the standard F-series models from Ford. The Ford Tuscany is available in F-150 and F-250 models with a bull bar fitted with off-road lights, a suspension lift, a 20-inch Black alloy wheel, recalibrated tire sensors for a wild ride and a superb driving performance. The Tuscany also comes with an exclusive pair of fender flares that match the robust semi truck.
Ford Super Duty
The Ford Super Duty has always been Ford’s mainstream semi truck since 1985. Due to the driver’s necessity and comfort, the Ford motor industry has continued to produce a large scale towing and hauling truck with a beautiful design and bolder looks. The new Ford Super Duty F-450 XL has a towing capacity of more than 31,000 pounds. It is powered by a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo engine with 440 horsepower. The F-350 King Platinum model has similar features and specifications with an additional digital instrument cluster, dual zone climate control and an Advancetrac with Stability Control.
Ford SVT Lightning
The Ford SVT Lightning F-150 was introduced to offer many specialized options for the market. The redesigned STV runs on 5.4-liter V8 engines that offer 360 horsepower and a total torque of 440 pounds-feet. The Ford company stopped making this model so that they could focus on their heavy-duty and midsized lineup. You can still buy them from the used car dealers near you.
