2014 Super Duty Wins VSA:

2014 Ford F-Series SD Wins AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award

2013_SUPER_DUTY_6507The 2014 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the highest scoring Heavy-Duty Pickup in AutoPacific’s 2014 Ideal Vehicle Award research. Ford’s Super Duty product development team demonstrates again that they really know what heavy duty pickup drivers want.   The Super Duty beat out a very competitive group of heavy-duty pickups such as the GMC Sierra HD, Chevrolet Silverado HD and the Ram HD.  The Ford Super Duty has won AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Award for its class in three of the last five years.  It also has won AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Award in three of the last five years.  George Peterson, President of AutoPacific, says, “I just drove the 2015 model year of the Ford Super Duty and it is an impressive piece.  This does not take away from the win of the 2014 Ford F-Series Super Duty in AutoPacific’s research.  Super Duty owners rated it most Ideal Heavy Duty Pickup.  But the 2015 model is even better with a substantially upgraded Power Stroke Diesel powertrain.”

Of the fifteen categories in the Ideal Vehicle question battery, the 2014 Ford F-Series SD led or tied in nine categories and was within three percentage points of another two.

The top five highest ratings by Super Duty owners are: same exterior size, same cargo space, same exterior styling, same visibility, and the same seat fit as now.

No vehicle is perfect. Super Duty owners are split on the information and entertainment system, fourteen percent wanting more advanced and 19 percent wanting simpler technology. SD owners also would like more power and acceleration, more interior storage, and more distinctive wheels than now.

For 2015, the Super Duty gets a stronger diesel engine with more power and torque.  This will probably satisfy those who want more power and acceleration.  An empty F-250 with this new engine feels like a very, very large sports car.

The 2014 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the highest scoring Heavy-duty Pickup Truck in AutoPacific’s 2014 Vehicle Satisfaction Award. Coming in behind the F-Series SD is the GMC Sierra Heavy Duty. Followed by the Ram Heavy Duty and the Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty.

The 2014 Ford F-Series Super Duty demonstrated their excellence in Heavy-duty Pickup trucks by winning or tying in thirty-nine of fifty satisfaction attributes. The F-Series Super Duty was within one tenth of a satisfaction point in five other attributes, putting it at the top for Heavy-duty pickups.

The top ten highest ratings by F-Series SD owners are: exterior color and size, brand and vehicle reputation, handling and braking, power and acceleration, exterior styling, the perception or reliability and dependability, and feeling safe while driving.

Ford is not to be left falling behind its competition.  With its convincing win in 2014, the Super Duty is updated for the 2015 model year with a more powerful PowerStroke diesel engine and enhanced up-market trim packages – the King Ranch and Platinum models.  These are very profitable units for the Ford and the Super Duty models represent about one third of Ford’s F-Series production.
