Introduced a year ago, the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty definitely won’t feature bigger changes. The capable truck represents the third generation of Ford’s Super Duty series, which is pretty much equal to other HD models in the class, like Silverado 3500 HD or Ram 3500. For the next year, it will definitely continue in the same way, without more important changes. The overall design is an about to remain untouched, but there are few novelties to come terms of equipment organization. There is a new Lariat Sport version to come. Also, the company will introduce a new audio system, as well as a few more new standard features for each trim level. Other than that, the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty continues in the same way.
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, there is no room for changes. This truck came less than two years ago and still seems pretty fresh and competitive. Of course, it comes with all those revolutionary design solutions like the light-duty F-150. It rides on the new, super-light platform. Despite massive use of lightweight materials, the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty will keep its rigidity and continue to be a highly capable machine. The styling is characterized by a more massive front end compared to base model and probably won’t feature changes at the moment. Still, we could see a few novelties in terms of new colors and similar things.
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Interior
On the inside, the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty will have plenty of things to offer. Although primarily a working machine, this model offers lots of comforts. First of all, you can count on plenty of space. This truck offers a spacious cabin, which is also easily accessible. Like every large vehicle, this one also has several dead corners but the overall visibility is on a pretty high level.
Moving next to the materials, this cabin really impressed us. Not only that it features a real car-like dashboard layout, but also comes with plenty of quality, soft-touch materials, and massive and extremely comfortable seats. The list of tech features is also on a pretty high level, on par with many passenger cars.
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Trim Levels
The 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty will continue with the same six trim levels in the offer. Those are XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited.
The base XL is designed for hard work, so there is no place of too many convenience features. You can count on old-school steel wheels, as well as on things like manual windows and door locks. It also comes with a cheap-looking vinyl upholstery, are conditioning and intermittent wipers. Technology-wise, there is a rearview camera, as well as a 4- or 6-speaker audio system, depending on the cab design.
With the XLT, you can count on a few very useful addition, though it is still a pretty much bare-bone model, Some of the highlights are things like alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, keyless entry, cruise control, satellite radio etc.
The Lariat is definitely the most popular version of this truck, mainly because of its great balance between price and standard features. The novelty for this year is a new optional Lariat Sport Package, which comes with things like 20-inch wheels, spray-in bed liner, black trim and other. Other than that, the list of standard equipment remains pretty much the same. There are things like 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery etc. This trim also comes with anew B&O Play audio system with 10 speakers, which replaces Sony audio.
For someone who wants a little bit of distinctive styling, the King Ranch seems like a great choice. It comes with plenty of unique styling details, as well as with things like unique alloy wheels, automatic high beams, automatic wipers etc. On the inside, count on upgrades leather seats, heated and ventilates seats, heated steering wheel, and many more things.
The Platinum is pretty much all about comfort, so it comes in Crew Cab version only. The list of standard equipment includes things like 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, remote tailgate, blind spot monitoring etc.
Finally, the is the Limited trim. It adds things like unique interior color schemes, panoramic sunroof, as well as with a bunch of safety systems, including a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist etc.
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Engines
There is no room for surprises in this aspect. The 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty will continue with two familiar engines in the offer. Base models feature a 6.2-liter gasoline V8 engine, which is good for about 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Still, a 6.7-liter diesel unit definitely fits much better to this work machine. It delivers impressive 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. Such amount of torque guarantees amazing towing capacity. This is a working machine, so 30.000 pounds seems great.
Besides amazing towing capabilities, this truck is also pretty capable off the road. You can deal with pretty much any kind of rocky road or another hard terrain, without bigger problems. When it comes to transmission, there is a familiar 6-speed automatic. Not only that it deals with such a huge amount of torque so very well, but also works very smooth and ensures pretty comfortable ride.
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty is already available on some markets, while other states will get the new version available pretty soon. A great thing about the new model is that the price remains in the same range. The most basic version of this capable truck is available already at 37.000 dollars. The bad thing is that higher trims mean soaring prices. So, fully-equipped versions go all away up to 83.000 dollars. When it comes to competition, there are no surprises. The designation clearly indicates that this segment belongs to F-350, Chevy Silverado 3500 HD and Ram 3500. From these three trucks, the F-350 Super Duty had the best sales numbers so far and probably will continue in the same way.
