Ford Motor Co.'s redesigned 2011 Super Duty pickup will carry a base sticker price higher than its predecessor but will include upgraded content, such as a new six-speed transmission. Ford also will offer its first diesel V8 engine designed in-house.

The pickup, which goes on sale this spring, starts at $28,995, according to a dealer and a source familiar with the program. The 2010 Super Duty 250 starts at $26,850. Both prices include shipping.

The Super Duty will be a key vehicle this year because Ford executives expect the housing market to improve in the second half and commercial-fleet pickup sales to spike. In January, sales of the F series rose 10 percent to 27,630 trucks vs. a year ago.
