To the Editor:
Regarding "Ford to tout new F-450 towing capacity, hp, torque as best in class" (autonews.com, July 16):
I don't understand why Ford doesn't rate its new Super Duty pickup using the SAE J2807 standard.
I understood the J2807 standard as a way for consumers to tell what the true towing rating is without a bunch of fine-print disclaimers that the industry sometimes uses.
We have been selling and servicing recreational vehicles for more than 32 years. We are very active in the RV safety arena and like to see standards where safe towing is concerned.
