Powerful and Up for Anything - The Ford F-350 Super Duty Tackles the Heavy-Duty Competition

When it comes to your toughest jobs in the Bonner's Ferry and Newport, WA area, it's hard to compete with the utility and power a heavy-duty pickup truck can offer. At Mike White Ford of Sandpoint, where we carry a full collection of impressive Ford models, our F-Series collection of pickups are immensely popular, and it's easy to see why.

Each Ford F-Series pickup offers our favorite carmaker's signature blend of style, power, and performance, in a variety of styles and capabilities. Whether you have a small business or a corporation that you need to outfit with an entire fleet, there's a Ford pickup to satisfy your needs.

Take the range-topping Ford F-350 Super Duty, for example. Available in three different cab styles, with various impressive engines, and in a number of trim levels, the F-350 is the perfect solution for Spirit Lake, ID and Libby, MT area drivers who need a truck that can go above and beyond.

But while the Ford F-350 Super Duty is a perfect investment for any pickup shopper, we know it may not be the only option competing for your attention. To help you understand what sets it apart, we've put together this side by side look at our F-350 next to one of its top competitors, the Ram 3500.

Size & Interior Space

Regardless of whether you need a pickup with a full-sized backseat in the four-door crew cab style, or you prefer the two-door regular style with no backseat, you'll be more comfortable in the Ford F-350 than the Ram 3500. Our Ford model is taller and longer than the Ram. For you and your passengers on the inside, this translates to more space to stretch out in in. Look to the crew cab style of both models. You'll find that, while the F-350 and the Ram 3500 both can seat up to six people in this style, both the front seat and the backseat have more legroom and headroom in the Ford than the Ram. Additionally, looking at the regular cab for both models, each seats up to three people in one row. But you'll be more comfortable sitting altogether in the Ford than the Ram, where there's more headroom, legroom, and elbow room.

Comparing Power

Both of these heavy-duty powerhouse trucks offer a series of three engines to choose from. But where the Ford has two gas-powered V8 options and one astoundingly powerful diesel option, the Ram has one gas engine, and one diesel engine that's available in two outputs. This gives you more options in the Ford, and it also gives you more power. For example, the top-tier diesel V8 for the F-350 presents drivers with 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque. But the highest output you can expect from the Ram diesel powertrain is 400 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque.

Plus, the Ford F-350 has smoother shifting and performance than the Ram 3500, thanks to its standard 10-speed automatic transmission. The Ram 3500 only gets an 8-speed automatic standard for its lineup.

Comparing Utility

What's a heavy-duty pickup without a range of utility options? Depending on the job and task at hand, both of these trucks offer similar heavy-duty numbers. Both tow more than 37,000 pounds depending on the configuration you choose, and both top out at more than 7,000 pounds payload capacity. But the F-350 has longer bed options, which means you can fit more of the gear you need into your pickup than you can with the 3500. While each truck has two pickup bed length options, both F-350 beds measure longer than the Ram options.
