2022 Ford F-450 Delivers Potent Power to Hedley

May 25,2022

With the release of the 2022 F-450 – which is available at Skaha Ford in BC – the Blue Oval has set a new benchmark for commercial fleets. With standard diesel engine power, this four-ton truck is incredibly strong and delivers peak outputs for arduous jobs. But the Super Duty's capabilities don't stop there. Even with its commanding size, this diesel rig is whip-cracking fast with potent accelerating power. The 2022 F-450 features a standard 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel that crushes the competition with 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission, power is directed towards the rear wheels, but a four-wheel drivetrain is available on every trim. This block also incorporates a driver-activated engine-exhaust brake, which restricts the turbocharger's exhaust flow to create back pressure. This is useful to slow down the truck when travelling downhill or when greater driving control is needed. For moments when swift performance is required, the 2022 F-450's 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine rises to the challenge. It gets up to 100 km/h in approximately eight seconds – and that's when it's loaded to capacity. With the standard gooseneck hitch, the 2022 F-450 can also haul a maximum of 16,783 kg – that's enough to pull 16 sub-compact cars.
