Marketing, marketing, marketing. The old Ford SD was really quite a special vehicle, then Ford went and whored the name, make it seem all their truck line was as special as the old SD was, when in effect the new SD designation is no better than the f350 it replaced-just new styling and a new nameplate. Same with these new chevys. Slap on a new name sticker, crank up the juice on the engines and call em HD when in fact its the same ol same ol that it replaced. How can they call it HD with a front GAWR of 4250? (as the lawnguy spits on the ground...)Originally posted by landscaper3
Why all of a sudden they came out with this HD duty series were the older ones light duty???? Im unclear it makes the others sound like light duty. Ford has done that for a few years so mabey GM has gone with that approach?
