The 2012 Ford F-350 SuperDuty Crew Cab Diesel, is big on power, towing capacity and luxury options.

If you need to tow a trailer, RV or just about anything, look for the most towing capacity you can afford. This Ford truck offer 19,500 pounds of towing which should pull just about anything including a fifth wheel trailer.

With an ideal mix of power, brawn and refinement, the 2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty is a top pick for a heavy-duty truck.
