What’s So Great About the Ford F350?
The Ford F350 has a long and impressive history as a top-tier workhorse. This model began production in the mid-1980s and ran until the early 2000s, with a few updates along the way. As one of the highest-end models, it has not always been the cheapest choice on the market. But the F350 has earned a reputation for strength, reliability and excellent performance in a range of conditions, from towing loads to off-roading. This truck has really earned its reputation as a do-anything pickup. It’s known for being incredibly tough, with a powerful engine and great towing and hauling capabilities. It’s a great work truck for contractors or anyone who needs a pickup that can haul big loads and tow heavy trailers. For towing, the F350 offers a choice between two engines, a 6.8L diesel or the 7.3L V8, with the diesel engine offering particularly impressive fuel economy. On the road, the F350 has a smooth and quiet ride, thanks in part to its standard independent suspension. While not a sporty truck, the F350’s ride is comfortable, even on rough roads.
A Brief History of the Ford F350
The Ford F350 was first released in 1986 as the F-series Super Duty model. This truck featured the same chassis as the F-150, but in a more robust design with a greater payload capacity. The F-series Super Duty line was a heavy-duty, long-wheelbase model that was designed to compete with the Chevrolet W-series and GMC W-series trucks. The F-series Super Duty pickup line was in production until 1997, when it was replaced by the current F-series lineup. The current F-series includes three models with a standard cab, an extended cab and a crew cab. The F-series Super Duty name was revived in 2018 for a special edition model. This one-off model is essentially a Ford F-450 and can be ordered with either a 6.8L diesel engine or a 5.4L V8 engine. Both engines are designed to handle heavy loads. The F-series Super Duty is currently in production, with the standard model starting at approximately $40,000 and the F-450 model selling for about $50,000.
The Early Years: 1986-1997
The F350 was the highest-end model of the F-series Super Duty line, designed for maximum towing and hauling capacity. It featured a 6.9L diesel engine that produced a maximum torque of 1,800 lb-ft. The F350 could tow up to 17,000 pounds and haul up to 5,000 pounds. It also featured a heavy-duty chassis and suspension, a power-assisted steering system and heavy-duty front and rear axles. The frame of the F350 was made with a hydroformed design, meaning that it was shaped with water pressure to reduce distortion. This design made the frame stronger and more durable than a frame made with conventional forging techniques. The F350 was available in regular and crew cab models and in a number of different exterior colors.
The Middle Years: 1998-2003
Ford made a number of changes to the F350 for the 1998 model year.
