2018 F-350: Cargo & Payload
The 2018 Ford F-350 offers two different cargo bed lengths: an 8-foot and a 6.75-foot bed. You’ll be able to haul up to 7,630 pounds with the correct configuration, which is more than enough to carry landscaping stones, lumber, or even a bale of hay.
You’ll have an easy time loading and unloading with the remote tailgate release. You can lock, unlock, or lower it, so long as your key fob is on you. The available LED box lights, located at the rear of the box near the tailgate, make it easy to work under the cover of dark.
More Capabilities: Trailering
You can tow a lot with the Ford Super Duty F-350, but the exact figures depend on how you configure it. Its max conventional towing capacity clocks in at 21,000 pounds—an impressive number by any measure. You can tow large items, like toy haulers and work equipment, even on winding mountain roads.
Max 5th-wheel/gooseneck towing ratings take things to a whole new level: 32,000 pounds. The heaviest equipment, whether for mining, farming, or construction, will be easy to transport to the right destination.
Towing features? There are plenty of them, starting with BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow. It covers blind spots on your truck and your trailer, so navigating the roads is a more streamlined experience.
Pickup Truck Performance
The 2018 Ford F-350 is powered forward by one of two engines, both of which pair with (different) 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmissions. The standard engine is a 6.2L V8 that generates up to 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. That’ll get this truck moving in a hurry.
The available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 turbodiesel is the best powerhouse for towing. It cranks out 450 horsepower and a whopping 935 lb-ft of torque, for even more impressive driving. If you want a little more acceleration or need that torque for towing, the turbodiesel is a great choice.
