The F-350 is a heavy-duty truck with a 1-ton capacity as opposed to the 1/2 ton of the F-150. The Super Duty line was redesigned for 2005 with new exterior and revised engines. The ride is stiff and bouncy, especially compared to the F-150. Ford's 6.0-liter turbodiesel packs some real punch and is fairly quiet and free of vibration. Stepping into the cabin is more difficult because of the high floor.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Easy to drive, plenty of passing power on the highway; always feels secure on the road."

Jane B., NH (2015 Ford F-350)

"I have a gas engine and Ford's 6-speed auto transmission. The constant shifting with even moderate hills is very distracting. Acceleration even when well under the rated GVWR is very poor. The turning radius is large. Really large. I mentioned the pitching problem in a previous question."

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"Rides just like a one-ton truck should. Stiff suspension, yet comfortable, adsorbing most bumps in the road. Acceleration is way beyond what I expected. Very quick."

James P., ME (2015 Ford F-350)

"It wanders all the time,steering wheel responds. After moving three or four inches, dealer says it is in spec.thisis my 17 pickup noneor the others had this problem."

Anonymous, FL (2015 Ford F-350)

"I tow a 12 ton 5th wheel and have never had a problem with acceleration (crossed the Rocky Mts. 3 times) or handling"

Jeffrey A., TX (2015 Ford F-350)

"We haul a gooseneck horse trailer with living quarters. We have gone all over including thru the rocky mountains and the truck adjusts to what ever load we have. I have to remind myself that I have a trailer behind me."

Anonymous, LA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Power when towing or hauling , fuel mileage when compared to a gas engine is better . Cost of driving a diesel when towing is less."

Anonymous, OR (2015 Ford F-350)

"I use the the truck to pull a 40’ 5th wheel trailer and this truck handles the big trailer very well."

Eddy H., TX (2015 Ford F-350)

"This is an 8000 lb truck with a 6.7 liter turbo-diesel and a 4.30 rear end. It will do a 0-60 time of less than 8 seconds. Handling for such a large truck is amazing due to the stiff suspension - it is very flat in turns and amazed my friend who commented that it handles more like a sports car. I love it."

Robert P., TX (2015 Ford F-350)

"Awesome diesel engine and transmission. If the truck isn't carrying at least 1000 pounds of load, the ride is punishing."

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"Torque and engine horsepower is exceptional. Feel economy on diesel engine is very good."

David Z., NY (2015 Ford F-350)

"The 6.7 L Powerstroke power and torque makes this 9500 lb (DRW, 4x4) truck surprisingly quick through all of the gears once the turbo builds pressure. It tows 14k lbs up and down 6% grades while maintaining speed with little driver input. Relatively smooth ride when unloaded and rides much better when loaded."

BRIAN R., OH (2015 Ford F-350)

"Diesel option provides tremendous torque. Interior ride very comfortable and quiet."

DAVID Z., NY (2015 Ford F-350)

"Good; acceleration, infomation system comfortable seats. Bad- takes a football field to turn around.but it is usually the largest vehicle in the Walmart parking lot."

LARRY B., VA (2015 Ford F-350)

"I use it to haul a slide-in truck camper and it handles and accelerates amazingly well in spite of the fact the whole thing weighs almost 11,000 pounds and has a very high center of gravity."

Anonymous, CA (2015 Ford F-350)

"With the 6.7l Power Stroke diesel engine, there has never been a need for additional power even when towing my 12,000 fifth wheel in hilly terrain yet. Mountain driving is coming up soon and I anticipate that there may be a need to downshift one or two gears when needed. Handling while empty is choppy in certain conditions as would be expected in a 1 ton pickup and when towing with 2000 lbs tongue weight certain road surfaces can be choppy as well. A vehicle of this nature may benefit from a"

FAYE H., WI (2015 Ford F-350)

"The 6.7 liter diesel is an outstanding engine. I pull a 36 foot 5th wheel trailer. The engine is a real workhorse, and is the quietest diesel I've owned."

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"it is a work truck so you will feel the bumps and dips in the road and it will not accelerate quickly but it handles well and you know that there isn't much that will stand in you way on the trip, i.e. snow, slush, water or mud"

Sandy E., KY (2015 Ford F-350)

"Has 4-wheel drive, but haven't had to use it yet. Tows a semi-loaded 16-foot utility trailer with no problems. Very disappointed with gas mileage!"

Anonymous, WA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Great vehicle, everything works great. On highway trips I get up to 20 miles per gallon. Rides a little stiff and is a little more difficult to park but it is a big vehicle so I expect that."

Glenn A., CO (2015 Ford F-350)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Ford blew it with the seat comfort in my XLT. Terrible! The rear seats are the worst of any vehicle I've owned. If one doesn't want to pay for the Platinum trim level you pay anyhow- your back pays, your rear pays. Can you tell I'm dissatisfied?"

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"Have made many long trips and I don't feel tired or road weary"

Anonymous, LA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Quiet cab, Ride is not harsh but rather smooth and car-like."

David Z., NY (2015 Ford F-350)

"It's as comfy as a luxury car!! Plus very roomy! My husband is 6'6", so it's a perfect fit for him as well."

Linda W., WA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Seats are very comfortable with both heating and air conditioning. Noise level is low enough to allow normal conversation. Ride is somewhat rough due to the extra heavy duty suspension designed for heavy towing (up to 25000 # or hauling (up to 14000 #). I tow a 17000# RV and am a full time RVer (do not own a house)."

Robert P., TX (2015 Ford F-350)

"Being a heavy duty truck, I expect a rough ride. That said this truck can be very hard to handle on less than ideal highways and can start a rhythmic pitching at speeds other trucks handle well, even with a load in the bed and no trailer. Cab noise is very loud, I have to use an auxiliary seat cushion that is deeper in the front to stop a tendency to slide forward as well as for additional comfort."

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"I have heated and cooled seats. Heated seats for winter is nice but cooled seats for Texas summers."

Eddy H., TX (2015 Ford F-350)

"I use this vehicle to both commute to work (30 mile round trip), pull a work trailer about 6000 lbs and pull a 12,000 fifth wheel camper, under all these conditions, the quietness of the cab has impressed me. It is very easy to carry on a conversation in normal speaking modes with anyone in the backseat or front seat. The heater/AC unit performs flawlessly so far and the seats have provided me and passengers with a comfortable ride with frequent non-stop rides over 3 hours."

FAYE H., WI (2015 Ford F-350)

"Noise level is very low for a diesel. Interior space is very small."

Anonymous, MI (2015 Ford F-350)

"tows great - love the exhaust break. Not totally impressed with navigation and cost of upgrading"

PATRICIA B., CO (2015 Ford F-350)

"Have a dually. Extremely rough ride even loaded and with added airbags"

KELLY T., ND (2015 Ford F-350)

"Diesel engine (6.7L) is powerful, no problems towing. very secure. I like the sync my touch system. very accurate. easy to understand. Front seats are very comfortable. Needs more room in back seats like the F-.150."

LARRY B., VA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Ford has this extremely irritating limitation of options to specific levels of trim. In particular you cannot get a heated steering wheel unless you buy the platinum trim level. I have had frostbite and really wanted the heated steering wheel, so I had to shell out for the upgraded trim to get it."

GLENN C., NY (2015 Ford F-350)

"I have back problems and the front seats of the F350 are more comfortable for me than any other car seats I've ever sat in. This is mainly because there's enough space in the cab for me to sit straight with my back and legs at 90 degrees and my feet flat on the floor."

"Practical"

Anonymous, VA (2015 Ford F-350)

"Great seats somewhat rough ride it is a heavy duty truck"

Anonymous, FL (2015 Ford F-350)

"The f-350 rides like a truck, and I expected that when I bought the truck. This is my 3rd F-350. This is the harshest ride of them all. Ford was trying to save weight to improve fuel economy. It is lighter, but the weight saving resulted in a very jittery ride, especially on concrete freeways."

Anonymous, ID (2015 Ford F-350)

"It is a F-350, you don't one for the family trips, so you know before you go that it is not going to be the most comfortble ride of your life. You will feel every bump and dip in the road and it will drink the gas too"

Sandy E., KY (2015 Ford F-350)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Plenty of power for hauling material, towing a trailer and snow plowing. We plan to keep this truck for 20 years as we know that a Ford yruck will last."

Jane B., NH (2015 Ford F-350)

"For a towing vehicle it lacks some basics towing gauges and trailer connections normally expected."

Anonymous, WA (2015 Ford F-350)

"The amenities for tje proce wad right ."

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Once forced into the platinum trim level you get the privilege of paying for a tacky chrome plated plastic "Platinum" on both sides of the bed. I pulled them off and got rid of them. Gaudy, tacky."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
