2018 Ford Super Duty F-350 Savannah GA
As one of the original members of the Ford F-Series line of pickup trucks, the F-350 has been around for decades and decades; however, the Super Duty designation didn’t come about until the 1999 model year, which makes the 2018 Ford Super Duty F-350 near Savannah GA nearly two decades old! But don’t worry, it has undergone plenty of updates in that timeframe, the most recent of which occurred last year, so even though it has plenty of experience under its belt it’s still a fresh, new vehicle.
The benefits of opting for a Super Duty truck over the ordinary Ford F-150 are fairly clear, but why should you opt for an F-350 over an F-250? The F-350 has a few different features mechanically and architecturally that ultimately lead to improved capabilities, like an increase in maximum payload, standard towing capacity and maximum towing capacity.
Specs & Features of the 2018 Super Duty F-350
Powered by either a 6.2L V8 conventional-gasoline engine or a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel, the Ford F-350 is capable of generating 385 horsepower alongside 430 pound-feet of torque or 450 horsepower alongside 935 pound-feet of torque respectively. With either engine option you’re looking at a ton of power, but how does that translate to capabilities?
Well, depending on the axle ratio, drive train, and how many rear wheels the truck has, you could be looking at a max trailer weight of 16,700 pounds in the 6.2L V8 or 21,000 pounds in the 6.7L V8. For 5th-wheel towing, the maximum rating stays the same for the smaller engine but increases to 32,000 pounds for the turbo diesel. Maximum payload depends on the drive system and wheelbase length, resulting in a maximum of 7,630.
