General characteristics of Ford F-350 Super Duty Super Duty IV Regular Cab (facelift 2020) SRW 7.3 V8 (430 HP) 4x4 Automatic
There's no such thing as a standard overall length or overall wheelbase for the Ford F-350 Super Duty. There are three cab configurations, two box sizes, and five wheelbase lengths to choose from. The base XL Regular Cab has a 231.8-inch body length and a 141.6-inch wheelbase. The longest wheelbase is 176 inches, coupled to a 266.2-inch body. Depending on which model you choose, the height varies between 78.7 inches to 81.5 inches. The only static measurement is the width with mirrors, rated at 105.9 inches. The extended mirror measurement on dually setups takes the width to 110 inches.
Ground clearance varies between 8.3 to 8.8 inches. Adding the new Tremor Package and the lifted suspension increases the ground clearance to 10.8 inches. You also get a set of 35-inch tires. Sounds fantastic, but if you're on the short side, you might want to invest in a small stepladder. Considering the long overhangs and wheelbase, the approach and departure angles aren't that great. The former is between 16.7 and 18 degrees depending on configuration, with the latter between 17.9 and 20.5 degrees.
The lightest F-350 weighs 5,877 pounds, while the heaviest model tips the scales at 8,133 lbs.
Three engines are available for the 2022 F-350, with a 6.2-liter V8 gas engine being the default. It delivers 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission. This engine can also be tuned to run on Flex Fuel, which is a combination of gas and methanol or ethanol. It's a handy feature, especially for the tax benefits if the truck will be used as a business vehicle. While it may not be the most impressive engine available, it provides ample power and a tow rating of 16,700 lbs.
For just over $1,705, you can upgrade to the 7.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 gas engine, also mated to the ten-speed 'box. The outputs increase to 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, and it makes the F-350 feel less lethargic around town. Towing capacity is increased to 21,000 lbs.
The ultimate engine is the 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8, adding over $10,000 to the retail price of the Ford F-350 Super Duty. In return, you get 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. This engine gives the F-350 its class-leading towing capacity of 21,200 lbs on a conventional hitch and 35,750 lbs with a gooseneck. All models come as standard with rear-wheel-drive, but four-wheel-drive is available. Adding the Tremor or FX4 package turns the F-350 into a proper 4x4.
Since the EPA doesn't evaluate heavy-duty trucks, we must rely on customer feedback and our own experiences with the vehicle. The standard 6.2-liter V8 used to get around 11 mpg with the old six-speed gearbox. The new ten-speed should make a difference, but not so much that you'd notice. Snooping around on customer forums reveals that the diesel will do approximately 14 mpg. Whatever model you opt for, it won't be winning any awards from Greenpeace.
At least Ford had the good sense to include large gas tanks as standard, although the size of the tank is determined by the body configuration you choose. The smallest tank size is 29 gallons, going up to 48 gallons in the Crew Cab with an eight-foot bed. This allows for a practical 670-mile range between refills.
The Ford F-350 pickup truck obviously doesn't have a trunk. Lockable and weatherproof aluminum cross-bed tool boxes can be specified and you can opt for a variety of tonneau covers ranging from a soft folding cover to a retractable unit. You can mount BoxLink as a standalone option, allowing you to fit aftermarket storage bins. For daily shopping, you'll have to rely on the storage behind the front seats. In the Regular Cab, you get 11,6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. In the Super and Crew Cab, the rear seats can be folded flat to provide 31.6 and 52.1 cubic feet, respectively. Keep in mind that the rest of the family will have to stay at home when you shop.
Two bed sizes are available: 6.75 feet and eight feet. The bed height is 21.1 inches, and at its widest, it's 66.9 inches long. The smaller bed offers 65.4 cubic feet of space, while the larger bed offers 78.5 cubic feet. The maximum load capacity is rated at 7,850 lbs.
J.D. Power rates the 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty relatively highly, with an 81 out of 100 overall consumer-verified rating. In terms of quality and reliability, it scores even higher at 84, and a 85 for resale value. However, the F-350 has been recalled multiple times. 2021 models were affected by five recalls for issues ranging from separating driveshafts and inadequate windshield bonding to improperly attached wheel-hub extenders, steering that may lock up, and driveshafts that may separate. 2022 models have not been recalled yet.
Every new Ford F-350 is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
