If you’re shopping for a Ford truck, you have a big choice on your hands, especially if you’re interested in the F-Series. While the F-150 may be the most popular, there are two others you might also want to think about, particularly if you’re looking for a worksite hauler. Check out our guide to Ford Super Duty® trucks at Kearny Mesa Ford.
Ford Super Duty Engine Options
The Ford F-150 comes with a 3.3-liter V6 engine that puts out 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. There are also five other engines available, with the top-of-the-line a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that utilizes an electric motor to create 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque.
Both the Ford F-250 and Ford F-350 have two engine options. The base is a 6.2-liter V6 that generates 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. The other is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke® turbodiesel V8 that can produce up to 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque.
Towing and Hauling
All Ford trucks have great towing ability, and – as you might expect – it gets better and better with the F-Series. With the Ford F-150, you will be able to tow up to 13,200 pounds and haul up to 3,270 pounds. The Ford F-250 will let you tow up to 18,500 pounds and haul up to 4,250 pounds.
With the Ford F-350, the towing capacity climbs to 21,000 pounds, with the maximum payload increasing to 7,630 pounds. And, with a gooseneck, that towing number goes all the way up to 34,000 pounds.
It should be noted that all of these towing and hauling numbers are dependent on properly-equipped vehicles, so ask your Ford dealer for the details.
