2021 Ford Super Duty
While the F-150 and the F-150 Raptor saw a generation change last year, the Super Duty series will do with a modest refresh this year. Currently in its fifth generation, Ford decided to give it a second refresh, which suggests that the next-gen could still be at least a couple of years away. The 2022 Super Duty series comes with new appearance packages, new color combinations, and a few tech upgrades.
2021 Ford F-250 Super Baja by Shelby
Shelby needs no introduction. The company recently took Ford F-250 Super Duty under its wings and made it an absolute off-road beast. The truck features a new, rugged off-road suspension system, custom wheels and off-road tires, and steel bumpers amongst other things. It is powered by the stock engine itself that makes more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque. There are some tweaks on the inside, too. Courtesy of all these changes, Shelby has priced the F-250 Super Baja at over $125,000. Also, it is limited to just 250 examples. Care to buy one?
2021 Ford Super Duty By Roush Performance
Roush Performance is known for Ford builds and it has come up with one more; this time for the 2021 F-250 and the F-350 Super Duty trucks. The aftermarket company has worked on aspects that will make it even more capable in tough conditions, like a new exhaust system, upgraded suspension system, and new wheels and tires.
2020 Ford F-250 - Driven
The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for over four decades now, and this legacy seems sufficient to introduce it. The company has a range of pickup trucks, ranging from light-duty to heavy-duty and for varied purposes. The list is exhaustive, but the bottom line is that if you need a full-size pickup truck, no matter what the budget or usage pattern, Ford has an offering for you, right from F-150 to the F-750.
While the F-150 is the best-seller of the lot and suffices for most of the needs, people looking for a little heavy-duty work tend to hop on to the next available option – the F-250. The F-250 is the entry-level model pf the Super Duty series that also includes the F-350 and F-450. This isn’t outright expensive, comes with strong specs, and fits the bill for most people looking to use it as a work truck. It is offered even with premium features on the top trim.
Recently, the 2020 Ford F-250 arrived at the Top Speed headquarters in the mid-Lariat trim, and here are our impressions of this beast:
2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Highboy Package by Long McArthur Ford
Trucks seem to the hot favorites for aftermarket companies to work on. For people with deep pockets, there are companies like Hennessey and Roush. But, when you’re on a budget, you’d prefer to stick to the accessories and packages sold by the automaker itself. One Ford dealer that has gone above and beyond the factory packages is Long McArthur. The Salina, Kansas-based dealership has created many special editions in the past, like the F-150 Cattleman Edition and the F-150 Sidewinder.
Now, the company has revived one of its old packages that would give the perfect, evocative feel to the 2020 F-250. Called the Highboy, this package is based on the namesake Ford trucks sold in the 60s and 70s. This year didn’t start on a good note anyway; so, why not dial it back and live with the retro vibes?
2020 Ford F-250 Harley-Davidson by Tuscany
Tuscany Motor Company is not a new name in the aftermarket and performance equipment arena. The company has worked on the Ford Mustang and F-Series in the past, and now, it has tied up with Harley-Davidson to roll out some lip-smacking editions of these famous trucks.
Although one would’ve assumed the Ford trucks to get beautified, the collaboration surprisingly included the GMC Sierra in the mix as well. Tuscany also added the F-250 to the existing lineup of F-150 and GMC Sierra, and from the looks of it, it can be said that the best was saved for last.
1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack – An ICON Reformer Project
Imagine having a vintage crew cab pickup with all the style and flair from a bygone era in design mixed with modern mechanicals and creature comforts, all capped with a outright obsessive level of detail crafted from the finest materials available. That’s exactly what we’re seeing here. This 1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack is the newest member of ICON’s Reformer series of builds. Its outward appearance looks properly vintage, but its body hides a 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel and Dodge 3500 underpinnings.
ICON has made its quite a name for itself over the years building custom vehicles based on vintage iron. The scope ranges from the “Derelict” series that puts modern mechanicals under an almost untouched, original body with its beautiful patina still intact to high-end Bronco and FJ restorations that are far superior to their factory-fresh condition. The California-based independent company will field nearly any customer request, regardless of difficulty, so far as their bank account will allow. That is clearly on display with this 1965 Ford pickup. You’ll definitely want to see the details in our full review.

Don’t expect anything completely out of the ordinary with Ford’s new F-Series Super Duty pickup trucks. The truth is, the pickup’s no frills, go-get-’em aura strikes a lot of us as the epitome of what a heavy-duty vehicle should be.
That’s an important quality to have because the market demands it, especially with competitors like the RAM Heavy Duty and the Chevrolet Silverado engaging Ford in a constant game of one-upsmanship for heavy-duty pickup supremacy.
The 2014 model of the F-Series Super Duty, which consists of the F-250 and F-350, doesn’t do much in the way of aesthetic improvements. Instead, Ford focused on giving the new model minor improvements to the braking system, including bigger rotors and a larger parking brake. It’s not going to catch the attention of the aesthetically-inclined, but there’s an argument to be made that these changes will offer more in turning the 2014 F-Series Super Duty pickup trucks into more capable to bring the fight to its competitors.
At the end of the day, that’s what you should expect with these four-wheeled monsters. Anything more will leave you disappointed and anything less will leave you pleasantly surprised.

When you read the title, you’ll notice that a dedicated air-suspension systems company built the truck that you see above. What does that mean? Why tell when you can deduce the sole purpose of what it’s built for?
Teaming up with known design company, Tim Nicolau Designs, Kelderman Air Suspension Systems has given some serious thought before going ahead with the project. It retains the same heavy-duty design of the standard F-250, but with a green twist. Whatever accessory was in chrome in the standard F-250, the team decided to paint it all green. Now don’t think it has something to do with eco-ism or some environment-friendly campaign. Heck, with a 6.7L PowerStroke V8 Turbo Diesel, this truck is miles away from being termed environment-friendly. Apart from that, the truck has been given a jet-black paint job that is complimented with black alloy rims. This gives the whole truck a mean, stay-away-from-me stance.
Then there’s what Kelderman do best: suspension. This Super Duty truck has been given 8-10 inches more lift, an AccuAir TouchPad air suspension management system, and Sway-A-Way remote reservoir shock absorbers. The greenery doesn’t end with the exterior parts of the truck. They’ve also chrome-plated and painted the suspension components in green.
Overall, we think this truck is ready to conquer any terrain (or even a small building!) and will easily stand apart from similar examples at the SEMA Auto Show floor.
The Ford F-250 Super Chief concept takes truck leadership to a new level - as the world’s first vehicle with Tri-Flex fueling, enabling the supercharged V-10 to run for 500 miles between fill-ups on hydrogen, E85 ethanol or gasoline. The tri-fuel flexibility is one possible innovation by Ford to help pave the way for hydrogen vehicles, as the nation’s ethanol and hydrogen fueling infrastructure continues to develop.
