2010 Ford F-350 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Super Duty is one of the toughest and most versatile trucks on the market, but Ford has left its heavy-duty pickup truck virtually unchanged for 2010.

The Super Duty is available in regular cab, SuperCab and crew cab in either 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain. The regular cab comes only with an 8-foot cargo bed, while the other two cabs can be ordered with either an 8-foot or 6.75-foot bed.

The F-350 SuperCab long bed and crew cab long bed can be ordered with dual rear wheels. The F-450 comes only in crew cab long bed with DRW.

The trim designations have been changed slightly for 2010: The FX4 off-road package is available for the XL, XLT and Lariat trims. The new Cabela’s trim incorporates the FX4 package and adds Cabela’s embroidery, decals and other features.

A properly equipped F-250 can carry 3,200 pounds and tow more than 16,000 pounds. The F-350 goes up to 5,700 and 18,400 pounds, respectively. The F-450 can carry three tons of payload and has a maximum tow rating of 24,500 pounds (with a fifth wheel trailer hitch).

New for 2010
The Cabela’s special edition pickup is based on the off-road-inspired FX4 trim. Ford says more than 75 percent of F-Series owners hunt or fish, so the Cabela’s package is designed to appeal to those likely to shop at the outfitter. There are interior materials unique to the package and additional lockable storage for firearms.

The Harley-Davidson edition returns on the F-450 model. This Harley is easy to spot, with large blue flame decals coming from the side vents. The familiar cues of a black leather interior and metal badges maintain the theme.

Finally, Ford is offering a spray-on factory bedliner.

Exterior
The Super Duty’s bulk is well-proportioned, even on short-bed models. Ford offers a wide range of colors, paint schemes and different wheels to help distinguish the different trim lines and special packages. For commercial customers, there’s a pickup-box-delete option, so custom service bodies can be adapted to the chassis.

  • PowerScope tow mirrors standard on some models; manual telescoping trailer mirror standard on others
  • Available moonroof on crew cab
  • Front and rear step bumpers help access engine bay, cargo box
  • Available tubular side steps or running boards
  • Off-road package includes skid plates
  • Power-sliding rear window standard on Lariat, available on other models
  • Available tailgate step

Interior
The Super Duty has a luxury option for almost every application. Like the off-road look of the FX4 but want heated leather seats, the Sync entertainment system and a six-CD changer? Order the FX4 Luxury Package.

Other packages include the Lariat Plus, Lariat Ultimate and the Cabela’s Luxury Package. Certain packages require specific trim levels. The Harley-Davidson F-450 and King Ranch have front and rear captain’s chairs with leather-trimmed center consoles. On diesel models, there’s an available Rapid-Heat supplemental heater to warm up the cab quickly on cold mornings.

A Real Head Turner -The Best Truck I've Ever Owned

This truck used to pull my 9 horse horsetrailer and also has, most elegantly, taken me to many black tie events. It's in perfect condition and even comes with a Ford-dealership-bought Premium Extended Warranty that's good for another 3 years.
