Power and Capability

The 2023 F-350 Super Duty lives up to its name when it comes to raw power and capability. Here’s a breakdown of what this beast can handle:

Engine Options: Buyers have a choice between two formidable engines: the standard 6.8-liter gasoline V8 delivering 405 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque and the high-output 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 that churns out a massive 500 hp and a staggering 1,200 lb-ft of torque. It’s a true towing champion!

Towing and Payload: The towing capacity of the 2023 F-350 Super Duty can reach a maximum of 40,000 lbs, allowing it to haul some seriously impressive cargo. Payload capacity also impresses, reaching up to 7,850 pounds. With this much towing capacity, you can easily bring along stripped-down trailers, heavy equipment, and even luxury yachts (on a trailer).

Drivetrain Options: The standard drivetrain for the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty across all trims is rear-wheel drive (RWD). However, all trims offer the option to upgrade to a four-wheel drive (4WD) system for enhanced traction in off-road conditions or slippery surfaces. Both drivetrains are paired with a heavy-duty 10-speed automatic transmission, ensuring smooth power delivery.

 

Interior and Convenience

Higher trim levels boast premium materials like leather upholstery and heated/ventilated seats. These features elevate the interior experience, making it feel more like a luxury SUV than a work truck.

The Super Duty provides smart storage compartments throughout the cabin so you can keep your essentials organized and readily accessible.

These are ideal for stashing away items you want to keep out of sight, like jumper cables, a first-aid kit, or emergency tools.
