Which Ford Truck Fits My Needs?

Sometimes, selecting that you want to take home is only part of the battle. Then, you'll need to pick which trim level, engine, and packages you want. While we can't choose for you, it certainly helps to offer you the insight that you might want to make an informed decision. While all Ford trucks are powerful, it's important to know which offers the level of support that you need for a tough day's work. These Ford trucks don't just offer AppLink, Waze navigation, traffic updates, and real-time alerts; it provides peace of mind. So, which do you pick?

It's a tough choice between the Ford F-150, Super Duty F-250, and Super Duty F-350, but we're here to offer guidance. Getting to know your new Ford truck is the first step towards taking it home, and we understand that you can't very well do that if you are having difficulty deciding. Read through our breakdown of each model, then test drive a few to fully understand how these trucks support a busy lifestyle.

Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 is your introduction to the trucks offered by the brand, but don't be fooled -- this is no average pickup. Choose between the XL, XLT, Lariat, Raptor, King Ranch, Platinum, or Limited trim and get the latest safety and entertainment features to make an easier commute. Great features available include Blind Spot Information System, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Reverse Sensing System, available 8-inch productivity screen, and more.

The SYNC System with smartphone integration from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is not the only addition to the F-150. Equip the Ford+Alexa feature and access Amazon Prime shopping, control supported Smart Home devices, and so much more. The main reason you choose a Ford truck is because of power, and the F-150 doesn't fail you. Choose between these engines for incomparable power:

  • A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with 375 horsepower
  • A 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, which offers 290 horsepower
  • A 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 capable of 325 horsepower
  • A 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine
  • A Raptor DOHC 24-Valve, High-Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost with 450 horsepower
  • A 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine with 395 horsepower

We know that picking a powerful engine is one facet in the process of elimination, but regardless of your choice, you're getting legendary handling for every job. Enjoy either a 4x2 or 4x4 option depending on your needs and the Pro Trailer Backup Assist for the kind of control when you need it most, plus Best-In-Class Payload. Pick from a Regular Cab, SuperCab, and Super Crew Cab option, plus three bed lengths: 5-1/2, 6-1/2, and 8 feet. Select cabs offer a fully flat load floor for easy loading, and a power-adjustable pedal with memory creates a customized driving experience you won't want to miss.

Protect what you put in the back with a tailgate lock and LED lighting, helping to illuminate the contents. While you sit comfortably in the 10-way heated power driver seat, listen to the available SiriusXM Satellite Radio through an optional B&O PLAY Premium Audio System with HD Radio. Choose to include the SYNC Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot and FordPass to stay connected when you need to, and never question whether you've missed a work email or status update.

Tasteful accents give the F-150 a more than accommodating driving experience, plus you can discover the ease of staying safe. Fade-to-off interior lighting, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers are just the icing on the cake, and during your test drive, you'll discover more benefits to driving an F-150. How does this truck stack up against the Ford Ranger?

Ford Super Duty F-250

Like the F-150, the Ford Super Duty F-250 offers XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim levels, each giving you an exciting dose of modern features. Premium safety options include Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Reverse Sensing System, Adaptive Steering System, and voice-activated navigation for seamless directions without distraction. Get cozy in your Super Duty F-250 with leather-trimmed seats while you take advantage of the hands-free wireless calling from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus 110-volt AC outlets that let you charge important devices on the go.

For entertainment, listen to dozens of music channels with SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and the SYNC 3 System for app integration to help you stay connected. A power tailgate release is controlled by a remote, as is the remote-lock feature for added security. Customize your F-250 with Regular, SuperCab, and Crew Cab option, plus a 6-3/4-foot or 8-foot bed length. Speaking of length, choose from a wheelbase of 142, 148, 160, 164, or 176 inches.

Make the most of your commute with the power you expect from a Ford full-size truck, and because you are driving a truck, you know you can gain access to the toughest engines. Choose either:

  • A 6.2-liter SOHC 2-valve Flex Fuel V8 engine with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque
  • An optional 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine delivering 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque

Not only do these engines provide a performance unlike any other, but you get up to 17,600 pounds of maximum towing, a Class-Exclusive Trailer Reverse Guidance System, and a 4x4 option for optimum traction. Get prepared for everything your year has in store for you with the available towing and trailering packages, plus a TorqShift Heavy-Duty six-speed SelectShift-G Automatic transmission. You also can choose a TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission on either engine option. The Ford Super Duty F-250 isn't just a work truck -- it's a versatile pickup that handles itself superbly.

Ford Super Duty F-350

The Ford Super Duty F-350 offers many upgrades, plus a Regular Cab, SuperCab, and Crew Cab option. Get the bed you need with a choice of a 6-3/4-foot or 8-foot bed. Leather seats with heating and cooling feature, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay integration, and a 10-way power driver and passenger seat give the Ford Super Duty F-350 an edge over the competition. When you slip into the cab, you'll notice its intuitive design, the SYNC 3 System, and the standard rear camera that illuminates your surroundings.

Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Warning with Brake Support, and many other standard safety features help the Super Duty F-350 stand out. You will want to take advantage of the Super Duty F-350's seven available cameras for optimum visibility, including a tailgate camera and a high-mount stop lamp to view truck's bed. You'll fit more into your cab with the rear seat storage option on select cab styles, while the flat load floor helps you accommodate extra tools, luggage, and more.

The performance specifications certainly don't hurt either, and with its engine, you get premium power from the standard 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine with 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque. A 6.2-liter SOHC 2-valve Flex Fuel V8 engine is also available and offers 430 pound-feet of torque and 385 horsepower. An upgraded diesel engine-exhaust braking helps efficiency, while the truck offers a maximum of 7,630 pounds of maximum payload.
