Ford F-250 vs F-350 | Which Super Duty is Right for You?

August 2nd, 2022 by

Bill Brown Ford's sales consultant Rudy Cardenas and his customer Berry standing in front of his new customer ordered Ford Super Duty.

The F-250 and F-350 are the two shining stars in Ford’s best-in-class lineup of super-duty trucks. These trucks offer unparalleled performance and come in six trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited.

There is no clear winner when comparing these two trucks; the only significant difference is their payload and towing capacities. So, let’s find out how these trucks compete against each other and which one best suits your needs. 


The F-250 and F-350 share the same engine lineup. The 6.2L flex-fuel V8 engine is standard on both trucks, producing 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Alternatively, you can opt for a 7.3L V8 with 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque or a 6.7L “Power Stroke” Turbo-Diesel V8, which offers 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. 

Transmission & Drivetrain

As far as transmission is concerned, there are two options available- a TorqShift G 6-Speed automatic transmission with “SelectShift Automatic” and a TorqShift G 10-Speed automatic transmission. Both trucks come with rear-wheel drive as standard, while all-wheel drive is optional across the lineup. 

Towing Capacity

The F-250 and F-350 are miles ahead of the competitors when it comes to towing power. The F-250 offers a maximum towing capacity of 18,500 pounds, while the F-350 ups the ante with an exceptional tow rating of 37,000 pounds. The towing ability varies depending on the engine you select, but these trucks will never let you down, no matter which variant you choose. 


The F-350 outshines the F-250 in terms of payload capacity. The F-350 pickup truck can carry a maximum load of 7,640 pounds, which is about twice as much as the F-250’s maximum payload capacity of 4,270 pounds. 

Interior & Exterior

The F-250 and F-350 flaunt an identical appearance, and the only visible difference is that the F-350 has the option of dual rear wheels, whereas the F-250 comes with single rear wheels only. 

In terms of interior, both trucks feature an array of world-class amenities that will make your journey extremely pleasant, relaxing, and comfortable. The standard interior features include an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay®, Android AutoTM, a 110-volt charging outlet, and satellite radio. As you move up through the various trim levels, you can get dual-zone climate control, a twin-panel moonroof, adaptive steering, power-adjustable pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leather-trimmed seats. 

Safety Features

Both trucks are outfitted with a slew of industry-leading safety features to keep you safe on the road. These features include BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Center High-Mounted Rear View Camera, Lane-Keeping Alert, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Trailer Sway Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Driver Alert Mode. 

The Perfect Work Trucks

The F-250 and F-350 come in various configurations and trim levels, offering unrivaled functionality to drivers. With three different cab options—Regular Cab, Super Cab, and Crew Cab—and two different bed length options—short box (6’9″) and the extended box (8′)— both are the perfect work trucks money can buy. Additionally, you can choose between three and six passenger seats and additional cabin space that can be turned into a cargo area for all your tools and supplies.
