Do you frequently tow equipment around Richmond or Mechanicsville? Perhaps, you do a lot of weekend projects at your home near Ashland? If so, you need a heavy-duty truck, such as the Ford F-350.

To help you learn about this Ford truck, our Richmond Commercial Truck Center thought we'd dive into its specifications and features. In this in-depth review, we'll be covering the Ford F-350 towing capacity, engines, features, and more. Let's get started!

Ford F-350 Towing Capacity and Payload

Thanks to its versatile performance, the Ford F-350 can provide the specific power you require for your daily tasks. What does this mean for you? Well, the F-350 has a wide range of towing and payload capacities. So, let's learn about the maximum capabilities of this no-nonsense truck.

When properly configured, the maximum towing capacity reaches 21,200 pounds. As for the 5th-wheel gooseneck towing, the maximum towing capacity is 35,750 pounds with the proper equipment. As for payload, the F-350 can haul up to 7,850 pounds with the right configuration. 

Strong Engine Lineup

Why are there different towing and payload capacities? Well, it mainly is due to the engine lineup of the Ford F-350. With a standard engine and two available engines, you can customize the output of the F-350.

The standard engine is a 6.2L V8 that generates up to 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. The alternative 7.3L V8 kicks out 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. For the most power, though, upgrade to the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel, which delivers 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque.

How can the diesel engine produce such substantial power? It's armed with cutting-edge systems, such as a 36,000-psi fuel-injection system and electric-actuated variable-geometry turbocharger. With these features, the diesel engine provides a consistent throttle response and potent pulling power.  

Performance-Enhancing Systems

There's more to the Ford F-350 than its heavy-duty engines and power-it also has intelligent technology.

For starters, there's the TorqShift® 10-speed automatic transmission with four selectable drive modes. Each drive mode alters the performance of the Ford F-350 to improve your traction on specific terrain. These modes are:

  • Normal
  • Tow-Haul
  • Eco
  • Deep Sand/Snow

With the Tremor Package, you can also have the Rock Crawl mode.

Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, an available system of the F-350, makes backing up an easy task. With the simple turn of a knob, you can rotate the trailer in the direction you'd like for it to go and let the system do the work for you.

Your Ford F-350 Is Waiting

With jaw-dropping towing power and smart technology features, the Ford F-350 is as practical as it is capable. It'll help you effortlessly complete heavy-duty tasks around Ashland, Mechanicsville, and Richmond.
