Ford Super Duty pickups get transformable 'four-barrel' cup holder

The redesigned heavy-duty pickup can be outfitted with up to 10 cup holders.

Ford has highlighted its patented 'four-barrel' cup holder that will help F-Series Super Duty owners and occupants charged with plenty of coffee or other beverages.

The transformable dual-cupholder design integrates a permanent two-barrel holder and a storage bin that quickly converts to a second matching pair of cavities for additional vessels.

The additional fluid stowage capacity can be achieved by simply sliding the top of the two-barrel holder across the storage bin.

Drawing from years of extensive global research focused on cupholders, Ford engineers added up to 10 cupholders in the redesigned Super Duty lineup. With only five seats, the Crew Cab driver and four passengers can each bring two large beverages to get through a long work day.

"Hard working Super Duty customers love having cupholders and storage close at hand," observes Ford truck marketing manager Doug Scott.

The redesigned Super Duty is scheduled to go on sale this fall.
