A full-size truck like the Ford F-350 Super Duty is made for hauling lots of stuff and towing with relative ease, but Ford has made an effort to refine the interior without sacrificing the rugged exterior and grunt to back it up.
As a result, buyers who cross-shop strong competitors like the Ram 3500 and Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD may have a tough decision to make -- especially if ride comfort and interior luxuries are important.
The 2014 Ford F-350 adds a new XL option package that includes cruise control and CD stereo, along with various chrome accents.Read more »
The Ford F-350 Lariat has significant improvements in the cabin but also an emphasis on people who will use the truck as a hauler or to tow trailers. On the inside, there is an upgraded sound system with eight speakers and a subwoofer that allows for multiple inputs. In addition, there is automatic air conditioning and a steering wheel with stereo controls. On the work side, the F-350 Lariat includes an upgraded alternator and auto-manual locking hubs for towing, as well as a rearview camera for safety and hooking up trailers. Extended mirrors for towing are powered and security systems are also improved.
The XL trim of the Ford F350 Super Duty expands on the entry-level model with a quick-release tail gate and integrated trailer brake controller as well as hill start assist to make towing easier. There are numerous seating options that allow rear seats to fold down and offer more cabin space for tools and other equipments. Standard exterior features include telescoping mirrors as well as an integrated cargo box. Locks and air conditioning are manually operated, but the vinyl flooring and seating allows for easy cleaning from worksite dust and debris.
The interior of the F-350 XLT receives a host of upgrades, including adjustable seats, more storage and cup holders, as well as 12-volt accessory points. The infotainment system includes Ford's SYNC system that allows for voice control of the AM/FM/CD player with MP3 capability and an auxiliary input; alternatively, drivers can adjust volume and change stations from controls mounted on the steering wheel. For towing, there are heated spotter mirrors and clearance lamps. Other conveniences include remote keyless entry and a perimeter alarm system, and power door locks and cruise control.
