Key Standard and Optional Features
Engine - 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine
The Ford-built Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel has been a top performer in its class.* But that didn’t satisfy the Ford powertrain engineers who worked to make it even better, generating more power in the 2015 Super Duty.®
• New, larger turbocharger for greater on-demand performance • Surface area of the single compressor vane is larger for exhaust gases to turn the compressor, permitting lower boost pressure and eliminating the wastegate • New fuel pump and injectors for more power and reduced emissions • New temperature control system for enhanced turbo efficiency and performance • Graphite iron engine block that is stronger yet lighter than cast iron • Aluminum cylinder heads with precision dual water jackets for reduced weight and improved cooling • Inboard exhaust and outboard air-induction architecture to help reduce turbo lag • High-pressure common-rail induction system that delivers up to five injections per combustion cycle for optimum throttle response and fuel efficiency, as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) • B20 capability and clean, quiet operation • Instant-start glow plugs for quick start-ups, even at extremely low temperatures
- *Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR.
Audio - AM/FM Stereo, Digital Clock, Single-CD with MP3 Capability, Four Speakers
An AM/FM stereo with single-CD player, MP3 capability, clock and four speakers is standard in Super Duty® XLT and optional in XL.
Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
Super Duty® has the first factory-installed, fully integrated trailer brake controller (TBC) available in a full-size pickup, so there are no installation hassles or aftermarket worries. Integrated with the ABS and trailer sway control, TBC synchronizes vehicle and trailer brakes for seamless braking, even with the heaviest loads. The Ford TBC offers the advantage of verified compatibility with trailers (one to four axles) utilizing electrically actuated drum brakes and certain electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) actuated drum or disc system.
Trailer Sway Control
Trailer sway control (TSC) builds on the AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™(RSC®) system to help maintain trailer control through selective braking and adjusted engine power.39 The result is noticeable stability and control, which provides greater driver confidence when towing large loads.
