2013 Ford F-350 Reviews

Vehicle Overview

The F-Series Super Duty is Ford's line of heavy-duty pickup trucks, which are available in a variety of configurations and three model series: F-250, F-350 and F-450. The truck can carry as many as six people when properly configured, and competitors include 2500 and 3500 models in the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and Ram truck lines.

Two engines are available: a 6.2-liter gas V-8 and a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8. Both engines team with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission.

New for 2013
Ford debuts a Platinum edition of the Super Duty that comes standard with upscale features like a backup camera, navigation system, MyFord Touch, remote start, power-adjustable pedals, power-telescoping mirrors and 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels. The truck also gets a mesh grille surrounded by satin chrome trim as well as chrome tow hooks, door handles, mirror covers and exhaust tip. Inside, there's a heated leather steering wheel, premium leather upholstery, woodgrain-style trim, two USB ports, A/V connection points and an SD card slot.
Exterior
A 2011 restyling brought a "power dome" hood, a bolder grille stamped with a Super Duty logo and an oversized Ford oval badge. Buyers have the choice of an extended cab (Super Cab) with a 6.75- or 8-foot box and a crew cab with four conventional doors and a 6.75- or 8-foot box. Dual-rear-wheel models are available with the 8-foot box. Exterior features include:

  • Standard trailer hitch receiver
  • Standard 17-inch wheels; 18- and 20-inch wheels available
  • Optional PowerScope towing mirrors 
  • Optional power moonroof
  • Optional tubular side steps or running boards
  • Optional spray-in bedliner

Interior
The Super Duty borrows seats from the Ford F-150 pickup truck, and it offers a three-place front bench seat or front bucket seats. The bench seat is split 40/20/40, and a lockable under-seat center storage compartment is optional. A wide center console is available on models with front buckets and includes a bin large enough to hold a laptop computer. On the Lariat, heated and cooled front seats with a memory feature for the power driver's seat are optional. Crew cab models have a three-place rear bench seat that flips up to reveal a flat cargo floor. An available 4.2-inch LCD screen in the instrument cluster shows fuel-economy information and monitors off-road and towing details. Interior features include:

  • Standard air conditioning
  • Standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Optional navigation system with SiriusXM Travel Link
  • Optional power-adjustable pedals
  • Optional Sync system

Under the Hood
The standard 6.2-liter gas V-8 is a single-overhead-camshaft engine that runs on regular gas or E85 ethanol. It produces 385 horsepower and 405 pounds-feet of torque.

The available Power Stroke 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8 produces 400 hp and a massive 800 pounds-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm, making it the logical choice for serious towing and hauling. The Power Stroke V-8 burns regular diesel fuel or a blend of up to 20 percent biodiesel.

Both engines work with a standard six-speed automatic transmission that incorporates Ford's SelectShift technology, which enables driver-initiated shifts. Mechanical features include:

  • Rear- or four-wheel drive
  • Gas V-8 can be fitted to run on CNG/LPG

Safety
Safety features on the Super Duty include:

  • Electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • All-disc antilock brakes
  • Optional rear parking sensors
  • Optional backup camera

Extremely happy with this truck.

This is an F350 King Ranch SRW 4x4 with the 6.7 powerstroke diesel. It has power to spare and gets excellent fuel mileage for this class of vehicle. Ride is firm as you would expect from the F350 but ... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
