Discover for yourself why the Ford F-350 S/D remains one of the most popular trucks on the road with its superior load capacity, power, and strength. Tough and hard working yet with sleek good looks, this truck is hard to beat.
For a truck that’s strong and powerful with generous load capacity, take a look at the Ford F-350 S/D. Available in a range of trims to suit different budgets, each model is a real workhorse with superior pulling power.
With a steel frame and aluminum body, there’s an underlying toughness that is coupled with a large number of luxury features inside the cab.
The truck comes in three engine choices: a 300 horsepower Triton V8 5.4-litre engine (365 lb.-ft of torque), 362 horsepower Triton V10 (457 lb.-ft of torque), and a 350 horsepower twin-turbo V8 6.4-litre Powerstroke diesel (650 lb.-ft of torque). With regard to available transmissions, it comes in a six-speed manual or five-speed TorqShift automatic that’s complemented by Tow/Haul mode.
In addition to its impressive hauling power, the F-350 S/D provides excellent maneuverability, courtesy of its factory compound turbocharger system that offers an exceptional response as well as top-end power. This system is defined by common-rail injection that delivers heightened torque and horsepower; all while delivering a quieter engine. All these play a key role in improving precision driving but also provide stability at higher speeds too.
Exquisitely Designed Inside and Out
The Ford F-350 S/D boasts of sharp edges that deliver a sharp appearance, especially when it comes to Super Duty units. In line with this, it’s important to note that full-size F-350 come in five wheelbases and a 6.75 or 8-foot cargo box. Regular cab models, on the other hand, come with two doors and Super Cab models are complemented with rear half-doors. Furthermore, Crew Cab models come with four regular front-hinged doors and can have rear or four-wheel drive as well as single or dual rear wheels on both sides.
Front tow hooks come standard and XLT models are packed with chrome front bumpers; while XL models come with polished chrome grilles. Lariat units are loaded with stylish fog lamps, cab steps, and a functional as well as the sleek rear window.
Regular cab models can easily and conveniently fit up to three occupants, while Super Cab and Crew Cab models can fit up to six individuals, depending on the model and the height and weight of occupants. XLT models, on top of regular features such as air conditioning, power locks and windows, CD player, and so on, are also packed with cruise control. Lariat models, on top of the aforementioned components, also come with power front seats that are covered in premium leather.
Safe and Secure Power
There are plenty of safety features to assist with driving and its cutting-edge anti-lock braking system (ABS) stands out. It’s specifically designed to automatically detect each time the tire stops rotating during extreme braking. When this happens, it fine-tunes the pressure to allow appropriate tire rotation. This, in turn, boosts the truck’s capability to turn each time the brake is hit.
Also, airbags can be found to the front and they are designed to deliver utmost safety during frontal crashes. Furthermore, it’s packed with an ignition disable device that prevents the engine from starting if an incorrect key is used.
The Ford F-350 S/D has gained almost iconic status in the industry and with large cargo capacity, choice of cab size and smooth, precision steering it’s not difficult to see the reason for its success.
