Believe it or not, the Ford F-Series trucks have been around since 1948. Marketed as full-sized pickup trucks, Ford currently has a range of F-Series trucks on the market starting with the F-150, F-250, F-350, and they go up from there, each one with a little more heavy-duty capabilities.
The F-150 is the most common truck in the F-Series and has been the best-selling truck in the United States since 1977 and the overall best-selling truck since 1981. The F-150, 250, and 350 are dependable, hard-working, stylish, and convenient to drive. Add in affordable to the many perks the Ford F-Series trucks have to offer, and it’s hard to see a reason not to purchase one today.
The F-150 was manufactured for the first time as a 1975 Ford truck that was positioned in between the F-100 and F-250. The truck took on a heavy-duty classification to avoid some EPA restrictions that allowed the F-150 to be sold without catalytic converters, smog pumps, and other mandatory emission parts. Ford even produced the truck so it could still run regular leaded gasoline, which was a big deal to some consumers at the time.
The F-100 was discontinued in 1983 and left the F-150 to be the best choice for the average truck owner. Moving up to more modern times, the F-150 still continues to be a truck that can offer you it all in one package. Great powertrain options and trim levels to fit just about anyone’s criteria, from bare bone base models that are designed to take a beating to higher standard optioned trim levels that offer a lot more luxury and modern-day connectivity technologies.
The Ford F-250 sits nicely in between the F-150 and F-350 as an option that is a little bit bigger and stronger than its little brother and not quite as extreme as its big brother. The truck offers well over average payload and towing capacity thanks to the big reliable gasoline or Powerstroke diesel powertrain options.
Much like the F-150, you can buy one that is a bare-bones base model with just a single cab or you can get into the four-door versions and go up in trim levels to add luxury, comfort, technology, and style. Make no mistake, either way you go, you will have a truck that is a workhorse.
The two biggest differences between the F-250 and F-350 is the towing capacity and the optional dual rear wheel axles. The F-350 can come with a dual rear wheel configuration that helps the F-350 when it comes to payload and towing capacity capiblities. Also, like the two above-mentioned F-Series trucks, the F-350 also can come in a bare-bones work truck trim package or there are plenty of trim levels that offer much of the same luxurious options the F-150 and F-250 can offer while still offering the strong F-350 capabilities.
The same drivetrains are offered on the F-350 as with the F-250 Super Duty trucks. But if you are looking for something a little more specific to your worksite needs, the F-350 might be the way to go. Options like being able to buy an F-350 without a bed so you can install your own that is more adequate to your work situation are available.
