2016 Ford F-350
This model belongs to the company’s line of Super Duty trucks, which includes models from F-250 to F-750. These trucks are designed mainly for towing and other hard jobs that F-150 isn’t able to do. This model originally came in 1999 and so far, we have seen three generations of it. However, it is expected that 2016 Ford F-350 will come as next-generation model, which will bring many improvements in all aspects. It will be much lighter, with better towing capability, but also with new look and more car-like interior.
2016 Ford F-350 redesign
The 2016 Ford F-350 will come as new-generation model, so there are big expectations. The testing model has been spotted and although it still wears camouflage on same areas, it is clear that it will get more attractive look, with many details borrowed from F-150. However, more important thing is that new truck will adopt many new technologies that came with its smaller cousin. Just like F-150, it will feature body panels made of aluminum instead of steel, which will provide massive weight savings. However, experts aren’t convicted that this aluminum-made body will be strength enough to provide same performances as previous models. Company claims that new Super Duty will have at least same performances and even better results in some segments. Just like previous versions, 2016 Ford F-350 will be available in many options – there are three cab designs, two bed lengths, two rear axle options, five trim levels and many others. Interior will come in new style, more car-like with plenty of advanced-technology features.
2016 Ford F-350 engine
Although it comes as new model, 2016 F-350 will keep current engine line-up. Base option will be the same 6.2 liter V8 petrol engine which makes 385 horses and 405 lb-ft of torque. However, the real deal comes with 6.7 liter V8 diesel engine, which is probably the most powerful in class. It outputs 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of max torque. Beside more power, this engine also has better fuel economy than petrol unit and it is also better for towing. This engine is also capable of burning bio-diesel fuel, making it B20 capable. When it is about transmission, 2016 Ford F-350 will be equipped with same 6-speed automatic gearbox.
