2018 Ford Super Duty Tops J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study

2018 Ford Super Duty Millburn NJ

The annual J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study evaluates every vehicle on the market. It takes the issues of more than 75,000 car, truck, SUV & minivan owners that have been reported within the first 90 days of ownership and analyzes them to measure their quality.

In the latest edition of this study, the 2018 Ford Super Duty was rated at the top of the Large Heavy Duty Pickup category. Beating out other popular trucks in Central New Jersey like the 2018 Ram 2500 & 3500 and 2018 GMC Sierra HD, the Super Duty received a Power Circle Rating of 5 out of 5 due to its overall quality for its mechanical features & design.

The 2018 Chevy Silverado HD also received a Power Circle Rating of 5 out of 5, but there are a few reasons why the 2018 Ford Super Duty is a better choice at our Union County NJ dealership location.

How the Super Duty Beats the Silverado HD

According to the 2018 J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study, the Ford Super Duty received 5 stars for its powertrain quality in terms of its mechanics and its design. The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD only received 3 stars for the mechanical aspect and 4 stars for the design aspect.

In terms of hauling power, the Super Duty wins because it’s capable of towing up to 21,000 lbs (conventional), 27,500 lbs (5th-wheel) or 34,000 lbs (gooseneck). Let’s compare that to the Silverado HD that can only tow up to 20,000 lbs conventionally and up to 23,300 lbs with 5th-wheel or a gooseneck hitch.

The same goes with the maximum payload capacity of each of these trucks. The 2018 Chevy Silverado HD can handle payloads up to 7,153 lbs, while the 2018 Ford Super Duty ups the ante to 7,630 lbs.
