The F-350 is a much heavier truck compared to the popular F-150. The F-350 comes with a 1-ton capacity as opposed to the 1/2 ton of the F-150. The Super Duty line has a ride that's stiff and bouncy, especially compared to the F-150. Powertrain choices include a 7.3-liter gasoline engine mated to a 10-speed automatic, as well as a 6.2-liter gas V8 and 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel which get a six-speed automatic transmission.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
