2018 Ford F-350: Power & Capabilities
There’s a reason that they refer to it as the Most Capable Full-Size Pickup in America—and it all starts with its lineup of available engines. Check out these options if you’re ready to get to work in Urbandale:
- B20-Capable 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V8: 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque
- Super Duty® 6.2L Flex-Fuel Gas V8: 430 lb-ft of torque, efficient operation at lower speeds
Plus, depending on which powerplant you choose, you could pair it with either the more-advanced Ford TorqShift® G SelectShift® 6-Speed Automatic Transmission or the reliable Ford TorqShift® SelectShift® 6-Speed Automatic Transmission. Either way, you’ll experience minimal gear hunting and smoother shifts.
Yet that’s just the beginning of a slew of performance- and capability-promoting systems that are driving this truck. Check out some of these other features, which will help keep you safe, strong, and effective.
Safe: Diesel Engine-Exhaust Braking. Restricting the turbocharger’s exhaust flow creates back pressure, which can be used to slow your vehicle—perfect for when you’re traveling downhill with a massive load.
Strong: Best-in-Class GCWR. This pickup’s Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is 42,800 pounds1.
Effective: Larger Fuel Tanks. The 2018 F-350 was created with a larger fuel tank than its predecessors.
All in all, you could say that this is one of the most impressive pickup trucks around Clive or Waukee…
