That's why the 2021 Ford F-350 Super Duty has a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) included as standard. And on SRW models, you can install optional splash guards to protect against mud and corrosion.

TPMS uses a sensor that relays information about the inflation status of each tire to a computer. If it falls below an acceptable value, a warning light switches on to alert you. But beyond the truck itself, it can also monitor the wheels of any attached trailers or RVs.

Plus, you can choose from 17" or 18" wheel sizes that come in steel and aluminum, so your truck rolls reliably to every job site around BC. Therefore, no matter if you choose single or dual rear tires, you'll be assured of reliable, long-lasting performance.

Add this truck's available Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking system and you'll get extra peace of mind.

When installed, this system constantly scans the road ahead of you using cameras to detect other vehicles and pedestrians in your path. It then flashes a warning and sounds an alarm to indicate you should take corrective action.

If—for whatever reason—no corrective action is taken, the AEB system will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity for when you can manoeuvre out of danger. And if all else fails, the truck is able to slow down and halt itself to help soften the blow of any potential impact on BC's streets.
