F-350 series stands between F-205 and F-450. New 2019 Ford F-350 belongs to a family of super duty full-sized trucks. It might seem confused when it comes to an elegant look and remarkable payload and towing capacity, as well as powerful engine under the hood. We can choose between three cab configurations (Regular Cab, Crew Cab and Extended Cab) and three trim levels-base XLT, higher XL and premium Lariant. Regular Cab have single row seats and two doors, Extended Cab has second row seats added, while Crew Cab has more spacious rear cabin area and four doors. All cabins can be raised on both 6.75- and 8-feet bed.
Exterior and Interior
It may seem that exterior design of 2019 Ford F-350 mostly maintained characteristics of a previous model, although some minor and slightly visible changes were performed. Yet, most probably you might notice different colors available. Massive grille on the front fascia indicates that there is a monster under the hood. 18-inches wheels come as a standard.
When we take a look at the interior of the 2019 Ford F-350 cabin, we get the impression of luxury and comfort. Beside soft touch materials, including leather in top trim levels that were used for upholstering it is fascinating that the cabin of the truck with such powerful engine can be so quiet. That is due to excellent sound isolation. As of infotainment features, there are MyFord Touch System, an eight inch touch screen, Bluetooth, audio system, climate control, navigation system and many more. Standard set of safety features include a mount launch aid feature, air bags, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, trailer sway control and electronic stability control and traction control. For more demanding customers there is also a distant start arrangement, a reverse camera system and some more advanced features.
You might choose beteween two engine options if you are interested in buying new Ford F-350. If you prefer gasoline powered engine, there is a standard Triton 6.2-liter V-8. That one produces 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque when gross combined weight rating (GCWR) is less than 10,000 pounds, and 316 hp and 397 lb-ft of torque in models with GVWR over 10,000 pounds, respectively. The other option is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V-8 with enough power to deliver 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque. Maximum towing capacity of a turbodiesel engine is 19,000 pounds with a conventional hitch, and 26,700 pounds with a fifth wheel/gooseneck hitch. For 4WD Crew Cab models with diesel engine, the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) jumps up to 35,000 pounds, while maximum payload goes up to 7,260 pounds. Both engines are mated to a TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift and a Haul/Tow mode and a RWD, while AWD is also available. When unloaded, acceleration from 0-60 mph happens in about eight seconds.
