    We've just given you the full rundown of the new Ford F-Series Super Duty's power, towing and hauling specs. The numbers are best in class in most areas, but we're going to look past the dazzling figures at some interesting relative comparisons. You might think the F pickup would have a higher maximum payload than the F pickup, but for that's not the case. Ford reduced the F's gross vehicle weight rating from 14, pounds in to 13, for , decreasing maximum payload from 6, pounds to 4, pounds highlighted in orange.

    The move is aimed at improving fuel economy by using new frame components and lighter axles. But take a close look at the F, where the class-leading payload is limited to one very specific configuration.

    It's 6, pounds highlighted in yellow for an F regular-cab long-box two-wheel-drive dually with a 12, pound GVWR and the all-new 6. However, the same configuration in four-wheel drive with the 6. Adding four-wheel drive in similar DRW configurations subtracts to pounds from the maximum payload. Taking into account the extra weight of the diesel and urea SCR system could account for another to pounds or so.

    Where did the approximately pounds of extra payload capability come from? Could it be from the horsepower, pounds-feet 6. Ford, specs subject to change. Let's compare to the payload ratings for the Super Duty. The green highlighted numbers we'll discuss were calculated with the hp, pounds-feet 6. That's a very different configuration from the F maximum payload setup.

    The closest we can get to the payload number is 5, pounds at 12, pounds GVWR in two-wheel drive and 5, pounds at 12, pounds GVWR in four-wheel drive. We've been told by Ford that the springs haven't been changed for from the hardware.

    Perhaps that's not the case because it doesn't seem as if the differences in engine ratings are enough to boost payload in the truck to such a high figure. Finally, let's compare to the Chevrolet Silverado HD , which for a brief time had class-leading payload in the three-quarter-ton segment.

    The Chevrolet loses to the Ford by pounds. But look at two notable items about GM's payload figures. The first is that the GM HD pickups have a 6,pounds-plus payload rating for every cab configuration. The second is the spread is much narrower between the largest GM number and smallest -- 6, pounds versus 5, pounds. In the Super Duty, it's 6, pounds vs. So we're scratching our heads a bit about the Ford number.

    We're not saying it's magic spring dust that gets them the 6,pound best-in-class rating, but there's something at work that isn't quite clear from last year's numbers and versus the competition.

    Ford has been doing this for years F It really is no surpirse that they are doing it with the HDs. They boast huge towing and payload capacities when it's all a bunch of b. That way the "Furd" lovers can say "my truck is better than y'alls truck! Frank How long are you Ford guys gonna hang onto that argument?
