The Ford F350 Super Duty is the big car for people who actually need the raw power of a big car. It’s got incredible towing and payload and can absolutely get professional, heavy-duty jobs done. The car doesn’t go out of its way to call attention to itself, allowing to serve its explicit purpose as a workhorse, but it still makes enough room for comfort that no one will like driving it is a task. It is designed to last and will tow things for a long time before it collapses.
Specs and Features
The 2014 F350 has two V8 engines. The standard 6.2-liter V8 has 385 horsepower with 5,500 rpm, and 405 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. The engines work with a six speed automatic transmission, which can be fitted for 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive. The low-end of the F350 includes an audio system, manual-control air conditioning, a two-speaker AM/FM radio system and an optional CD player, cruise control, and power windows.
High end models include diesel engine replacements, heated and cooled leather seats, a Sony audio system and navigation system, and a higher-end engine. A heavy-duty alternator and engine block heater are both available as options, and prep packages for different hitch-types options for rigs that will need to haul considerable amounts.
The cheapest possible configuration available for the Ford F350 is $30,000. If you were to choose the highest end available, you’d look at $68,000 to start. The diesel engine is the biggest single-change in terms of price impact, adding $8,000.
