2023 Ford Superduty???

I think Ford has gone a little bonkers with this one.

Not me.
I think that is insane! Can you imagine some people getting one of those, and never had a CDL in there life? Then buying the biggest 5th wheel they can find, hooking it up and go toolin down the highway. It's pretty scary.

I see that Ford also discontinued the 6.2 gas engine and replaced it with the new 6.8 gas engine.

It's not just Ford! "the Ram 3500 HD can tow a maximum of 37,050 lbs and the best that the Silverado 3500 can offer is 36,000 lbs."

I know that there are plenty of people towing (with or without ever having a CDL) that maybe shouldn't be.

Doesn't say which one it is, but I am guessing the 450.

From what I found https://www.hardworkingtrucks.com/pi...40k-max-towing

Yes it is a F450. The F350 is a lot closer to the competition.
