New for 2008
For 2008 the Ford Super Duty trucks add an available rearview camera system, as well as cleaner diesel technology. The interior has also been completely redesigned.As gas prices continue to climb, sales of trucks, including heavy-duty models, have fallen sharply. If you can afford to feed the thirsty Super Duty engines, you may be in a good negotiating position with most dealers.
