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 2015 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.

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Diesel engine is great...... turbo does have a "lag:" which I am not fond of!"

Robert C., CA (2016 Ford F-350)

"I tow a 5th wheel, acceleration is excellent, highway driving easy and event free."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"The acceleration is very good and the truck handles very well. Primarily, this truck is used to tow a 36 foot fifth wheel RV which it does with ease including mountain grades. The tow/haul mode along with the engine brake works very well descending steep grades."

Alan M., AZ (2016 Ford F-350)

"Has lots of power handles good for bigger truck"

Anonymous, MO (2016 Ford F-350)

"Acceleration and braking is great. What I don't like is the numb steering. This truck replaced a 1996 F-250, and I felt more connected with the road than I do in this truck."

Anonymous, CT (2016 Ford F-350)

"We’ve actually gotten 22 MPG with highway driving"

Rosemary W., IL (2016 Ford F-350)

"Feels solid, built well."

Lester I., TN (2016 Ford F-350)

"The majority of our miles is pulling a 40' fifth wheel. The acceleration with that load is surprisingly good and the handling is very steady even in a cross wind."

Anonymous, CO (2016 Ford F-350)

"Handling is a piece of cake, it really operates easily. Much smoother and more responsive than our previous 2004 F350."

Anonymous, WA (2016 Ford F-350)

"POWERFUL DIESEL THAT CAN PULL TRILERS WITHOUT SLOWING DOWN ON PA HILLS"

Harry S., PA (2016 Ford F-350)

"This truck is mainly used for towing, and it does that very well! Exhaust brake and tow haul modes are great features. 6 speed transmission is a great towing transmission. Truck has more than enough power to tow my 14k fifth wheel trailer. When unloaded the truck is quite fast and does handle well for a tow truck."

Anonymous, CO (2016 Ford F-350)

"handles great for a large vehicle and has power to spare when towing."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Ford F-350)

"I purchased and use this to tow a 35' 5th wheel rv. For this task the truck handles and accelerates great. The average MPG reported is while towing with MPG unloaded about 17. Your questions should be clarified as to usage of the vehicle. Most people don't own this type of truck just to use as a daily driver. For my intended purpose it does an exceptional job. Driving it unloaded you know its a truck but it is comfortable, accelerates good and rides good."

Karl J., TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"My only complaint is poor steering feel. The steering feels absolutely devoid of any feedback what so ever."

Anonymous, CT (2016 Ford F-350)

"Remarkable good vehicle and ride."

RONALD A., TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"Wonderful to drive on mountain highways even with a camper in the bed."

DONNA S., AK (2016 Ford F-350)

"Despite weighing in a over 4 tons, it handles well and the turbo-diesel will get up and go."

RICK W., VA (2016 Ford F-350)

"I purchased this pickup to pull a large 5th wheel RV and it does a great job. Pulls well, handles well."

DAVID A., KS (2016 Ford F-350)

"It has great horsepower and torque to pull our fifth wheel trailer. We are really happy with our Ford dually."

GEORGE B., TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"The acceleration is excellent."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"Full-time on the road in a 33 foot pull trailer. Excellent acceleration and stability when towing."

ERIC L., CO (2016 Ford F-350)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Very quiet for a diesel engine."

Anonymous, MO (2016 Ford F-350)

"The seats are very comfortable. We pull a 40' fifth wheel and even with that load on the ride is amazing."

Anonymous, CO (2016 Ford F-350)

"The leather front seats don’t seem as comfortable as they were in the beginning. Otherwise, the truck is good"

Anonymous, NM (2016 Ford F-350)

"The seats are very comfortable with an excellent ride and very low noise."

Alan M., AZ (2016 Ford F-350)

"Massage seat with choice of heat or air"

Rosemary W., IL (2016 Ford F-350)

"Comfortable, good view of traffic, reasonably quiet for 1 to truck"

Anonymous, TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"heated and cooled seats. seat adjustments"

Anonymous, CA (2016 Ford F-350)

"Didn't expect to have a diesel that runs so quiet...."

Anonymous, PA (2016 Ford F-350)

"Love the air conditioned seats! Very comfortable front seats. I am a little under-welded with the back seats as they are not nearly as comfortable as the back seat of our previous 2004 F350 crew cab"

Anonymous, WA (2016 Ford F-350)

"very quiet compared to my former 2000 Ford F250. I can actually hear the radio. Given its the Lariat the seats are very comfortable and the heated and cooled seats are awesome. The truck is used for towing. When unloaded the ride is great most of the time, a bit stiff when you hit a big bump though, but that's to be expected given its a tow truck."

Anonymous, CO (2016 Ford F-350)

"Leather seats with AC and heat are very comfortable. It feels like a luxury ride!"

Vince K., OH (2016 Ford F-350)

"THE NOISE IS OVERWHELMING.THE RIDE IS VERY HARD."

Anonymous, PA (2016 Ford F-350)

"Heating and cooling feature plus adjustable for anyone."

Anonymous, MO (2016 Ford F-350)

"seats are uncomfortable. they feel like they "fold" you up in the middle"

Benjamin R., NY (2016 Ford F-350)

"Bottom of the seats in front are not quite long enough so don't provide extended support on back of legs."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Ford F-350)

"air conditioned seats are great!"

Robert C., CA (2016 Ford F-350)

"Don't use it enough."

Anonymous, PA (2016 Ford F-350)

"We mostly drive towing a 16K-lb 5th wheel, which dramatically reduces the mileage. The diesel tows it effortlessly up and down steep mountain roads"

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.
