Aluminum-Body 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The all new 2017 Ford F-350 is proof that being big isn’t an excuse for being overweight. Ford’s heavy-duty pickup is still no featherweight, but thanks to its aluminium body, the big F-350 is the poster child for effective dieting.

Unsurprisingly, prices for the new truck are up across the board—just as they are for the 2017 Ford F-250. On the low end, the base-level F-350 Super Duty XL regular-cab truck incurs a small premium ($425), while on the high end, the top-of-the-line F-350 Super Duty Platinum models see prices rise by more than $5000.

All F-350s come standard with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Ford offers its 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8 on all models for an $8595 premium. That extra money buys you greater towing capacity and a heavy-duty transmission.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XL Regular Cab, $34,900: Like its F-250 stablemate, the base F-350 Super Duty comes with a single cab and an 8.0-foot bed. Single rear wheels are standard, but buyers can opt for a dualie for $1490 on rear-wheel-drive trucks and $1485 on four-wheel-drive models. Four-wheel drive will set buyers back $2800 for single- and $2795 for dual-wheel trucks. Power windows, power locks, and remote keyless entry are bundled in the Power Equipment group for $915. Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system with navigation and an 8.0-inch touchscreen can only be had after adding more than $2000 in option packages. Buyers looking for advanced safety options will want to check the boxes for a rearview camera ($370) and a blind-spot warning system ($540). The Ultimate Trailer Tow package ($710) lives up to its name and comes with a 360-degree camera system with trailer reverse guidance, a rear camera in the LED center high-mounted stop light (CHMSL) to give a clear view of the bed, and a rearview camera. The XL Value package ($720) includes chrome front and rear bumpers, a 4.2-inch screen in the truck’s center stack, an upgraded stereo, chrome wheel hub covers, and cruise control. Spending $1180 nets consumers the XL-exclusive STX Appearance package, which includes STX fender vent badging, chrome bumpers and wheel hub covers, a chrome grille, and more. Four-wheel-drive shoppers can also spend $295 on the FX4 Off-Road package, which adds special decals to the truck’s box, Rancho shocks front and rear, hill descent control, a transfer case, and skid plates to protect the fuel tank.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XL SuperCab, $37,240: F-350 Super Duty XLs offer a bigger cab but a shorter bed compared with the regular cab; however, buyers can pay $200 and trade the smaller 6.75-foot bed for the larger 8.0-foot bed. You’ll pay $1685 to get both the dualie package and the longer bed. Four-wheel drive is not available on dualie XL SuperCab trucks; it costs $2600 on non-dualie models.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XL Crew Cab, $38,500: With four real doors, the Crew Cab is the F-350 for carrying passengers and cargo. A 6.75-foot bed is standard, although the 8.0-foot bed can be added for $200 on rear-wheel-drive trucks and $195 on four-wheel-drive models. Four-wheel drive costs $2805 on short-bed F-350s and $2800 on the long-bed model. Opting for the dualie is a long-bed-only affair that will set buyers back $1685. Unlike the SuperCab, Crew Cab dualie F-350s can be had with four-wheel drive at an additional cost of $2800. Power windows, power locks, and remote keyless entry, among other things, are bundled in the Power Equipment group, which costs $1125.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XLT Regular Cab, $39,115: Starting at just under $40,000, the XLT Regular Cab adds standard features including chrome front and rear bumpers, a chrome grille, power mirrors, power door locks (including a tailgate lock), cruise control, remote keyless entry, a 40/20/40–split bench seat, vanity mirrors in the sun visors, a rearview camera, and a 4.2-inch screen in the center console with Sync connectivity. An 8.0-foot bed is the sole box available. Going dualie sets you back $1270, and four-wheel drive costs $2800 on both dualie and non-dualie models. A $1460 XLT Value package includes a reverse-sensing audible alert, a keyless entry keypad, fog lamps, automatic locking/unlocking doors, and power-adjustable pedals.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XLT SuperCab, $41,775: The shorter, 6.75-foot bed is once again standard fare, but the 8.0-foot bed can be added for a $200 charge on rear-wheel-drive and $195 on four-wheel-drive XLT SuperCabs. Four-wheel drive is a $2805 option for short-bed customers and a $2800 option on long-bed models. Dualie SuperCabs are rear-drive only and include the longer bed; the option costs an additional $1470. An XLT Premium package is available for $3025 and includes Ford’s Sync 3 system with 8.0-inch touchscreen, reverse-sensing audible alert, keyless entry, fog lamps, chrome mirror caps, chrome step bars, body-color door handles with chrome inserts, a chrome exhaust tip, power-adjustable pedals, an eight-way power driver’s seat, automatic locking/unlocking doors, heated front seats, and chrome tie-downs in the bed as well as chrome tow hooks, among other things. An XLT Driver Assistance package costs $1080 and brings automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive steering, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and lane-departure warning. Choosing either the XLT Premium package or the XLT Driver Assistance package requires that buyers also purchase a defroster for the truck’s rear window for $60, or a power sliding rear window, which includes a defroster, for $405.

Ford F-350 Super Duty XLT Crew Cab, $43,605: The XLT Crew Cab brings more interior space to the table. A short box is standard, with a big box running $195. Four-wheel drive costs $2800. Going dualie includes the big bed and requires that customers drop $1275 on rear-wheel-drive trucks and $1280 on four-wheel-drive ones.

Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat SuperCab, $46,300: The Lariat skips over the workmanlike regular cab to start right at the SuperCab. Standard features include running boards, fog lamps, a premium Sony audio system, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Sync 3 and navigation, two LCD monitors in the gauge cluster, eight-way power seats, leather interior trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Ford’s reverse sensing audible alert, among other things. As with the XL and XLT SuperCabs, Ford’s 6.75-foot bed and rear-wheel drive are standard. The longer 8.0-foot bed is a $200 upcharge. Four-wheel drive runs $3190. Dualie models are rear-drive only and cost an additional $1685. An $1125 Chrome package adds chrome wheels, mirror caps, and step bars; body-color door handles with chrome inserts; a chrome exhaust tip; and chrome tie-down hooks in the bed as well as chrome tow hooks. Choosing the $1735 Tow Technology Bundle brings automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive steering, 360-degree camera and trailer reverse guidance, a camera in the CHMSL, lane-departure warning, and more. Meanwhile, the $710 Lariat Value package includes an easy entry/exit memory driver’s seat, big trailer-tow mirrors with memory, remote start, heated and cooled seats, LED lighting in the box, an LED CHMSL, and power-adjustable pedals. Consumers looking to get some wind in their hair can select a power sunroof for $545.

Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat Crew Cab, $49,800: Crew Cabs can be optioned with a Lariat Ultimate package ($3740). It includes voice-activated navigation plus automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a proximity key with push-button start, easy entry/exit memory driver’s seat, remote start, a remote tailgate release, power-adjustable pedals with memory, a massive twin-panel sunroof, big trailer-tow mirrors with memory, heated and cooled front seats, a tailgate step and handle, LED lighting in the bed, a heated, power tilting and telescoping steering wheel, and more. The twin-panel sunroof can be had on its own for $1025. An LED lighting package ($1080) includes headlights, taillights, fog lamps, and an LED CHMSL. Choosing the long bed adds $200 to the price, while four-wheel drive requires an additional $3190. Dualies come only with the 8.0-foot bed and can be optioned with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Opting for the dualie adds $1480 to rear-wheel-drive trucks and $1490 to four-wheel-drive ones.

Ford F-350 Super Duty King Ranch Crew Cab, $56,630: Only available in Crew Cab form, the King Ranch wears standard contrast-color lower trim and bumpers. Other features include rain-sensing wipers, illuminated running boards, LED brake lights, seats wrapped in King Ranch–specific leather, a heated, power tilting and telescoping steering wheel, a proximity key and push-button start, and power-adjustable pedals, among other things.

Dualie King Ranch F-350s are long bed only and add $1680 to the base price. Opting for four-wheel drive requires tacking on another $3195.
