Like this article? Then you'll want to check out our first drive of the new 2008 Ford Super Duty, including the F-450 equipped with a pickup box and ready to tow 24,000 pounds!

Caught undergoing hot weather testing by ace spy photographer Brenda Priddy are these 2008 Ford Super Dutys.

Priddy firmly states that these trucks will be powered by an all-new, International sourced 6.4-liter V8 turbo diesel Power Stroke, which replaces the reliability challenged 6.0-liter PSD.

Using common rail instead of hydraulic rail fuel injection, it's expected this new engine will feature fast cycling piezo electric injectors that can spray a variable amount of fuel at a rate of up to 10 injections for every power stroke of the cylinder, resulting in cleaner emissions and improved fuel economy. The new design is also likely to boost the fuel injection pressures from the current 26,000 psi to an estimated 34,000 to 36,000 psi.

An all-new interior takes its cues from the current F-150 interior, as seen in the photo at the bottom.

The new Super Duty will a bit larger than the outgoing model, and will go on sale every early in 2007 - possibly as early as mid-January but will still bow as a 2008 model.
