Why The Ford F-350 Super Duty Makes More Sense Than An F-150 Limited

/ Comments

Size matters - as does value.

It's pretty incredible just how expensive the Ford F-150 has become. Take the F-150 Limited, for example. Base price for that top trim is $59,600. Nearly fully loaded, you're looking at a price tag of over $68,000. For an F-150. Insane, right? Yeah, kind of, and that made us wonder whether its big brother, the F-350 Super Duty might be the better overall value. We recently spent some time with a 2017 F-350 Super Duty and were impressed with it for a number of reasons.

For starters, our tester came powered by the optional 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 with a grand total of 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque. Yes. 925 lb-ft of twist. That's not a typo. Along with adding the fifth wheel (it just looks cooler), our F-350 had a maximum towing capacity of 21,000 lbs. and a maximum payload of 6,540 lbs.

The interior also wasn't too shabby. There's an 8-inch touchscreen with Sync 3, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and more than enough room for human beings, a couple of canine friends, and stuff in general. All told, our tester stickered for $68,115. Yeah, literally the same as the F-150 Platinum, which isn't nearly as badass. Special thanks to Future Ford of Sacramento for letting us film the car.
