I just checked it out, the link says the F450XL Chassis Cab comes standard with a 7.3L gas V8, and a 6.7L Cummins as an option.

That's a nothing article.

Don't forget that the F450's are usually just dressed up F350's with bigger tires. And they have a completely different F450 cab and chassis that can be dressed up with a RV bed. That's the one that really has the guts--more like a F550.

Nobody at The Onion has driven one. That would be a serious sin for them!

AFAIK the frame of 450s and 550s is thicker than 350s.

1) The Onion has become terrible. It is rarely funny anymore, and never relevant.

2) This quote is not accurate.

In some states, including Texas, you need a cdl for even a F350 if your weight is over 26000# and youíre hauling commercial. Some exemptions apply like for personal agriculture use and other personal use, etc.

Same in OH. 26,001 lbs requires CDL for commercial use. RVs do not. No weight restriction for a standard license.
