Add this to the space in the cabin and the capabilities of the truck and it is easy to see why Ford continues to rank at the top.

The outside of the Ford Super Duty Truck is designed with function in mind, but that does not mean that it lacks style. It made to haul large amounts of stuff and tow even the largest items. The exterior is proportioned to benefit both. Everything from the front grille to the size of the bed speaks volumes as to the power that lies behind it. That doesn't lead to the most fuel efficient vehicle on the market, but it definitely ensures that the job gets done.
The cabin of the Ford Super Duty Truck is not going to win any points for refinement and class. It is an industrial strength vehicle and the interior showcases that as well. This is one area where Ford might be lagging behind the competition that have altered the inside to be as comfortable and luxurious as possible. Inside the Ford, however, is generally a place of purpose. It sticks to the hard plastic that dominated vehicles in prior decades and offers minimal comfort. There is plenty of storage whether choosing the two or four door models. Controls are simple and effective and the instrument panel is easy to understand.
Driving the Ford Super Duty Truck is a fairly pleasant experience. Outside noise is amazingly subdued leaving a quiet trip for driver and passengers. It isn't the smoothest ride that one will find, but it handles even rough terrain easily. Handling is decent and the truck is more maneuverable than one might expect.

Regardless of which model is chosen it has the potential to handle virtually any hauling or towing task.
