Ford's F-Series Super Duty line of pickup trucks have stood atop the industry as the top-rated trucks in the United States for many decades. Of course, accomplishing this level of excellence requires going above the bar set by average offerings. Fortunately, Ford's solid and strong 2018 F-350 is more than ready to keep this commitment to excellence rolling forward.
You just need to spend a few minutes soaking in all the new F-350 has to offer to know that is ready to own work. With a frame that underscores its intense, workhorse ability, everything about this pickup demonstrates that it will exceed expectations, regardless of whatever task comes your way. You can even incorporate your very own style into this ownership experience by picking from 12 exterior paint options, in addition to adding on other stylish (and useful) options, like LED box lights and LED sideview reflect spotlights.
Most people end up driving home in a Super Duty pickup for two reasons: Cargo considerations and towing. In both of these facets, the 2018 F-350 is primed to exceed expectations. Payload limit differs with cabin and truck bed dimensions – a 4x4 Regular Cab with the 8-foot box will net you 7,160 pounds (lb) of payload limit. A 4x4 SuperCab with a 6.75-foot box will get you 4,620 lbs of payload room, while the eight-foot box variation of this SuperCab model will open up access to 6,780 lbs of hauling capacity. A 6.75-foot box on a 4x4 Crew Cab furnishes you with 4,470 lbs of payload limit, while the eight-foot box gives you 6,540 lbs.
Something the new F-350 does best is handle a hefty amount of towing even with a full payload. With either the 9,900 lbs Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or 11,400 lbs GVWR system on your side, you can give your truck what it needs to pull while stacked up with payload. The fifth wheel/Gooseneck fifth wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Tow Prep package helps equip your truck with everything you will need to pull a gooseneck or fifth wheel trailer. The standard coordinated trailer brake controller (in the XL DRW, XLT, and LARIAT models in particular) guarantees that braking while pulling a heavy load is never a problem.
The trailer sway control tool, which is also standard, works by specifically altering motor torque and applying the brakes to keep your trailer from shifting or swaying out of turn, which therefore enables you to keep control as you navigate Bismarck's bustling streets and highways. Going a step further, the available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System and trailer brake controller with Smart Trailer Tow Connector, gives you the power to hitch and keep an eye on your trailer with ease.
The F-350 is able to soar past the competition primarily because of what it brings to the table in regard to engine performance. Both of the F-350's motor choices are matched with a six-speed transmission. The 6.7 liter (L) Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel motor can generate an impressive 440 horsepower (hp) and 925 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 6.2 L 2-valve V8 FFV gas motor puts out 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Suggested fuel for these motors are: Ultra low-sulfur diesel for the Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel and regular unleaded for the V8 FFV gas motor.
A truck this flexible is also a major winner when it comes to safety features and functionality. The SOS Post-Crash Alert System will open all vehicle entryways and sound the horn in case of an impact, while also deploying airbags, thereby enabling emergency officials to reach you and your passengers as quickly and easily as possible. The standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) anticipates loss of vehicle control and changes motor torque if there is any wheel slippage when driving. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) throws up a red flag and cautions you should tire weight fall beneath suggested levels, and the optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) consequently advises you if any vehicle enters an area that is not easily viewed from your driver's seat position.
Now that you are up to speed on all that the Ford F-350 Super Duty has to offer, there is really only one question left to answer: Are you ready to stop by Eide Ford Lincoln today and meet the truck that is sure to revolutionize your daily routine?
