Although there is more competition in the heavy duty truck market than there used to be, Ford is still at the top of that heap in the United States. The rugged, reliable, yet surprisingly comfortable 2010 F350 truck is a good example of why that is. The F350 2010 model can carry nearly 6,000 pounds in the bed and tow over 15,000 pounds in the right configuration, and that should be plenty for almost any imaginable job.
As usual, For has provided the 2010 F350 with plenty of options for bed and cab. The regular cab is a two door, while the Supercab has a pair of small rear opening doors for access. The Crew Cab boasts four regular doors for the ultimate in comfort and convenience when you need the whole team to get the job done. Super Cabs and Crew Cabs come with either the 8 foot long bed or the 6.75 foot short bed, while the regular cab has only the long bed.
There are four available trim levels, XL, XLT, Cabelas, and Lariat. The basic XL has utilitarian standard features as 17 inch wheels, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, and a radio. Moving up to the XLT adds 18 inch chrome wheels, heated and powered towing mirrors, integral trailer brake, cloth upholstery, center armrest and cupholders, plus cruise control. The Cabela, available in 4x4 only, has upgrades aimed at offroad performance. These include limited slip rear axle, skid plates, and extra stout Rancho shocks. Extra niceties include a leather wrapped steering wheel, running boards, powered telescoping and folding mirrors, powered bucket seats up front, audio controls on the steering wheel, and satellite radio. The top of the line Lariat includes all the luxuries from the XLT level, and adds wood grain trim inside the cab, leather upholstery, dual zone climate control, powered and heated front seats, rear parking sensors, and voice controls for the multimedia options.
The F350 2010 model starts with plenty of power, and then ups the ante with even more muscle in two additional engine options. The base motor is a 5.4 liter gasoline is rated at 300 horsepower and produces 365 foot-pounds of torque. A 6.8 liter gasoline ten cylinder is also available, which produces 362 horsepower and 457 foot-pounds of torque. For those who have really tough hauling to do, a 6.4 Powerstroke turbodiesel V8 generating 350 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque is the way to go. These engines are mated to either a six speed manual or a five speed automatic transmission, and the truck may with either two or four wheel drive.
Like all F-series Fords of the lat few years, the 2010 is amazingly quiet for a truck in its power class, and its ride is quite comfortable in most configurations, while still providing on average between 60 and 80 more horses under the hood than its nearest competitors. Ford remains the choice for those seeking a serious work truck in the United States.
