The Ford F-350 or Ford Super Duty is a heavy-duty truck that can do a lot of great towing and hauling for you. This truck works well as a work truck because of its capability, but it is not short on fancy features for those looking for a technologically advanced and luxurious vehicle.
There are several different Ford F-350 trim levels that each offer you different features. To choose the right model for you, you have to know which features are most important to you. Below, we are going to take a closer look at the features these trim levels offer you, but before we do, we will take a quick look at the performance of this vehicle.
We just discussed the engine options. The base 6.2-liter engine is found standard on all the trim levels, except the high-end Limited trim. The Limited trim gives you the 6.7-liter engine standard. Are you curious about what other features each trim level offers you? Check it out below.
The XL is your base model for the Ford F-350. This trim option is going to be the most affordable option, so it could be a great option for a pure work truck. It has some great performance capabilities, but it also offers you some nice interior features, so you are not sacrificing work for comfort.
In the F-350 XL, you have features like the SYNC infotainment system, a 2.3-inch productivity screen, a 4G Wi-Fi modem, and a four-speaker sound system. You also have some performance capabilities like Trailer Sway Control and AdvancTrac with Roll Stability Control. This trim also comes with the 6.2-liter V8 engine standard.
Your next trim up is the XLT. This trim still gives you the same engine and the features listed above, but it adds a few connective and safety features. You also get a few extra exterior features.
The XLT offers you the SYNC 3 infotainment system, which is a more advanced version of the system on the XL. You also get remote keyless entry on this trim level and some safety features. These safety features include blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert, lane keeping alert, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. You also get exterior features on the XLT like 18-inch silver aluminum wheels, a chrome grille, and chrome steel bumpers.
The Lariat is a nice mid-level trim option. With this trim, you start to get even more interior features for added comfort. You get features like an upgraded 8-inch productivity screen, a B&O premium sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, premium leather-trimmed front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. You also get PowerScope Trailer Tow mirrors and LED spot lights to help you with towing, hauling, and general performance.
If you are looking for a more luxurious Ford F-350 that can still get the job done, you probably want to look at the King Ranch, Platinum, or Limited trim options. These three are a little bit more high-end than the trims before now.
The King Ranch trim level gives you features like remote start, remote tailgate release, intelligent access with push-button start, and a voice-activated navigation system. You also get features like the King Ranch antique effect leather bucket seating in this model. For safety and added performance, you get features like the ultimate trailer tow camera system, illuminated running boards, and LED box lighting.
The Platinum trim adds several exterior features to give you a more refined look, as well as some extra capability. You get features like 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome exterior handles, cab steps, a platinum satin chrome grille, body-color bumpers, and a tailgate step with this trim. You also get platinum leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, and adaptive steering.
The Limited trim is your highest trim level for the Ford F-350. This trim is the only one to give you the 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine option standard. This trim also offers you the highest-end look at feel. When you are looking for a top-of-the-line F-350, the Limited is the trim you should go for.
In the Limited trim, you can find features like a wireless charging pad, a twin panel moonroof, two-tone premium luxury leather seats, a suede headliner, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, and wood trim in the cabin.

If you want the high-end Ford F-350, you want the Limited trim. This trim level gives you the diesel engine standard, and you also get the most for interior features and luxury. This is a great trim for those that want it all.
Now that we have taken a closer look at some of the trim levels for the Ford F-350, you may be trying to decide which option is the best for you.
