Ford Released New Super Duty Power Numbers...GM now last

The 2015 Super Duties have increased the 6.7 power numbers to 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque.

2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty powers up, claims towing title | Fox News

I thought GM should have upped their game for 2015. But GM is always a day late. I bet they up the numbers for 2016. Another Reason to wait.....

"upping the numbers" is simply an updated dealer programming flash away. Its all just marketing anyway.

Normally I would agree, but over 40 Horse and 60 Foot Pounds under factory warranty without a programmer is nice. Ram did the same not too long ago. Not saying I would buy either of them, but GM needs to be more competitive and at least comparable.

Pardon my French, but there is no ****ing way I would try to tow that much with a pickup truck.

These people are just getting ridiculous. That's almost 5 times what the truck weighs. Just no FN way.

It's laughable...

I'm glad GM has seemingly decided to focus efforts elsewhere. The who's nuts are bigger contest is getting rather tired if you ask me...

Not sure what the Ford or Ram was. The problem with manufacture sponsored test such as these they almost never compare apples to apples and often forget to tell what each truck had as far as power plants or even what year the truck was.
Perhaps someone who knows the Fords and Rams can tell us what they were.

As for the Ram I believe you have to get into a 3500 series to get the high torque Cummins and the Japan Asian transmission.

I suspect if someone does ever compare the three 2015 stock off the show room floor 2500 series the Ford may come out on top but the Ram will most likely still be last. With the 3500 series the Ram may come close (but will cost several thousand more due to the Asian transmission) or even possibly be ahead of the GM but it will still be very close.

With grade braking I suspect the GM will still be King.
