"For more workers, Ford Super Duty is the most important tool they depend on to get the rest of their tools to the job site. There's no other truck out there accomplishing as much in working conditions as F-Series Super Duty is," said Brian Rathsburg, Super Duty Marketing manager. "Super Duty trucks are well known for their proven toughness and capability, and that's why they are such a leading force in all sorts of industries. They have it all – durability, reliability, performance and fuel economy."
On the website, visitors can view videos that share stories of workers who use Super Duty trucks to accomplish work on real job sites across the U.S. Hosted by Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe, the videos show the workers and trucks in action.
The site also features interesting statistics showing how Super Duty leads in a variety of fields. Some of these include:
74 percent of metal mining workers use Super Duty trucks
75 percent of road maintenance workers use Super Duty trucks
60 percent of utility workers use Super Duty trucks
Once users have gone through the videos, they have the option to share their own experiences of how they use their Super Duty. Some of the best stories may be chosen to be filmed for additional Mike Rowe videos on the site.
Based on a template that resembles a baseball trading card, visitors can create their own card to reflect the tough job their Super Duty helps them complete. Cards contain information like mileage, industry, region and tough facts about their truck and their job. Users also can upload an image of the truck they use. Once finished, they can embed the card in the website, share it on Twitter or Facebook, or print it.
The cards can be sorted by industry, year, region and toughness so the online community can scroll through the trucks to vote for the one they deem the toughest. The cards with the most votes for toughness will appear closest to the top.
Additionally, the site is programmed so that all functionality and animations are available for Apple iPad users.
