2017 Ford F-250 vs 2017 Ford F-350

Serving Waxahachie, Midlothian, and Dallas, TX

In terms of exterior and interior design and aesthetics, the truck in general has come a very long way. The modern design of most trucks include sporty, robust exterior design and interior designs that are roomy yet cozy, sporty and in select models borderline luxury. These enhanced, modernized features, however, do not take away from the overall ruggedness and utilitarian dynamic of the truck at all--the truck is as big and as bad as ever.

You may want to consider purchasing a truck if you enjoy extreme cargo space and frequently have the desire to use it, you enjoy high-platform seating and an overall rugged vehicle design, and if you just want to buy a truck. Two standout trucks include the new 2017 Ford F-250 and the 2017 Ford F-350. However, is one better than the other and what are their differences? Read on to find out.

Performance

Both the Ford F-250 and the Ford F-350 are a part of Ford's Super Duty Line of trucks, which are a significant step up from the Ford F-150, the base truck of the F line. Introduced in 1953, the F-250 and the F-350 possess similar performance features and abilities.

Given that both models are designed so similarly, let's take a look at what performance abilities they boast:

  • Engine Type: 6.2-liter, SOHC 2-valve Flex Fuel V8.
  • Transmission: Torqshift Heavy-Duty Six-Speed SelectShift G (Ford F-250).

Optional engine options include a 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8 Turbo Diesel Engine and an upgraded Diesel Engine-Exhaust Braking System.

Both models also come standard with Twin I-beam front axle with coil spring suspension, 4-wheel power disc brakes with Anti-Lock Braking systems (ABS), Roll Stability Control, Trailer Hitch Receivers, and Stationary Elevated Idle Control.

All in all, both models boast phenomenal performance specs; it's simply a matter of preferable overall size.

Appearance

The exterior design of the Ford F-line has come a very long way since its debut back in 1953. Today's F-line stars, the 2017 Ford F-250 and Ford F-350, are about as utilitarian as they can be. The classic gargantuan grille design remains, black-barred and embroiled with the classic Ford insignia at its center. Outside the chrome ridges of the F-250's authoritative grille design, the truck boasts squared LED-daytime headlights that seamlessly transition the eye toward the chiseled A-line of the exterior body which stretches aggressively across the length of the body and to the tailgate. Not many character lines mark the exterior body of the F-250 of F-350, but that's okay: the character of the Ford F-250 is already there.

Safety

In terms of safety, the 2017 Ford F-250 goes above and beyond its predecessors, the F-250 SuperCrew model snagging five stars for safety by the NHTSA. Its prominent safety features include manually deactivating front driver and passenger airbags equipped with Ford's Safety Canopy system, Belt-Minder systems, child tethers, and an SOS Post Crash Alert System.
