What is the difference, and do you really need a 1-ton truck? I read and heard both pros and cons. The 2015 Super Duty is available with two V8 engines, a 6. I put about 45 psi and it runs level all day long. The towing capacity refers to the maximum weight a vehicle can tow. To the best of my knowledge, the only difference in the F250 and F350 is the rear axle and rear suspension. The rear axle is the same on srw trucks.
Just because the specs state they both have the same tow capacity does not make it so. The Superduty with the 6. The curb weight of the F350 is five pounds heavier than the F250. If you're thinking resale, think diesel, as those models tend to have better resale then their gasoline counterparts. I heard F250 will have better fuel mileage when not hauling and a smoother ride. But, to paraphrase a comic, with great torque comes great chassis strength. If you live in a state where that is not the case, I would say get an F350.
Hey folks, I'm new here and just wondering if any of you have any input on a couple questions. If your putting anything in the bed be sure to get the f350 with overload springs. I think it's just under 4k. Along with the electronic trailer sway control, I have absolutely no problem towing that big of a trailer. The F250 and F350 are part of Ford's Super Duty line of trucks.
To the best of my knowledge, the only difference in the F250 and F350 is the rear axle and rear suspension. I think the rear suspension of the 350 has taller blocks, that make it sit a couple inches higher than a 250. The difference in payload is what actually determines just what the tow capacity actually is. Appreciate any insight you can provide. To ensure the truck is capable of towing, with no issues, and in the event of an emergency, I can manuever much easier than if I were maxed out weight wise.
If you're hauling or towing with your 2015 F-250 or F-350, then step up to the 6. Before buying, be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price to see what other contractors in your area are paying for the 2015 Ford Super Duty. Yet this is no uncivilized work truck — add the new King Ranch trim and you're surrounded by soft leather and premium features. When you need it for work or play, the Super Duty F-250 is sure to impress. Correct me if I'm wrong, but.
The bigger rear block on the F350 gives it a slightly higher tow rating. I opted for the King Ranch interior. I am looking at 5th wheels in the weight range of 16k with pin weights between 2300 — 2600 lbs. That's what I was looking for because I carry a slide in truck camper. Dont make the mistake i did buying a 250 then at 2 days old with 50 miles on it putting helper springs,air bags and f350 blocks so it didnt sag with a silly tool box in the bed. The F350 has stiffer springs up front as standard, the F250 has those same springs as an option.
I would lean to the 350, but that's only because it comes with the Trailer Brake controller I like mine. Just because you make upgrades air bags, overload springs and beefier front end suspension does not mean you have more capacity cargo weight or additional trailer weight. The F350's payload capacity is 1,220 pounds more than the F250 4,170 compared with 2,950. To learn more about the specs and features of the heavy-duty pickup, be sure to check out our where you can get more information as well as pictures of the models that we currently have in stock. I am mainly upgrading to a 350 due to my current track only has 2200 payload capacity and new 350 has a payload capacity of 3160. Pick up my 5th wheel next week and will exceed the truck payload rating by at least 500 lbs. Overloads are standard on the 350.
This is the main reason I am upgrading my truck. The F250 and F350 share the exact same drivetrain. Both are fitted to a 6-speed automatic transmission and can be had in 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. These are all good comments here. After a redesign for the 1999 model year, the names were changed to the F250 and F350.
