2016 Ford F-350 Overview

Automotive Editor - July 31, 2015

Although Ford's top-selling F-150 was reborn from the ground up last year, the beastly F-350 Super Duty will remain in familiar form a while longer. With its abundant power and available dual rear wheels, the F-350 makes quick work of even the most daunting jobs.

What's New for 2016

The F-350 Super Duty receives minor equipment revisions only.

Choosing Your Ford F-250 Super Duty

Befitting a truck of its mission, the F-350 comes standard with a 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. For maximum grunt, Ford also offers a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 with 440 horsepower and a suitably impressive 860 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission and your choice or rear- or four-wheel drive.

Models equipped with the 6.2-liter can tow up to 15,900 pounds. That figure bumps to 16,500 pounds when you opt for the turbodiesel. When outfitted with the available dual rear wheels, the F-350 can pull a maximum of 16,100 pounds with the base engine, and an eye-popping 26,500 pounds with the turbodiesel rumbling under the hood.

Like other Ford trucks, the Super Duty is available in three cab styles: the three-person Regular Cab; the Super Cab with rear-hinged access doors and a full-width backseat; and the Crew Cab with full-size rear doors and more legroom in back. The Regular Cab comes only with a long (8-foot) bed, which is optional on the others in place of the standard 6.8-foot bed. Note that the long bed is mandatory with the dual rear wheel setup.

Trim levels range from bare-bones basic to super luxurious:


Comes minimally equipped with vinyl seats and flooring, black exterior trim, and 17-inch steel wheels. Comfort features are limited to air conditioning and a basic AM/FM sound system.


Gets a thoroughly upgraded interior with cloth seating and full carpeting, power windows and locks, and a four-speaker sound system with Bluetooth, CD, and satellite radio. Outside are 18-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, and full chrome trim. Other perks include blind-spot mirrors, an integrated trailer brake controller, and the Ford Sync voice command system.

Lariat (Super and Crew only)

Offers a slew of trim and convenience upgrades, including leather upholstery, power front seats, power-folding mirrors, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and a power-sliding rear window. The MyFord Touch infotainment interface is also standard, along with an eight-speaker sound system on Super Cab models and a premium Sony system on the Crew Cab.

King Ranch (Crew only)

Adds Western-themed design elements throughout, including exclusive leather upholstery and two-tone paint. You also get remote start, navigation, and heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory.

Premium (Crew only)

Equipped like the King Ranch, but with an urban luxury design theme that includes 20-inch polished wheels and high-grade leather trim. A heated steering wheel is also part of the deal.

All 4x4 models are eligible for an Off-Road package with hill-descent control, skid plates, a electronic locking rear differential, off-road shock absorbers, and all-terrain tires. Fleet operators might go for the Ford Work Solutions package, which provides an in-dash computer for business needs.

CarsDirect Tip
