2007 Ford F350 Review



New for the 2007 Ford F350 with the 5.4 L V-8 was a non-limited-slip axle on the single-rear-wheel. Options included a Lariat “Outlaw” package on the Crew Cab and a Lariat “Highline” edition on the SuperCab. XL models featured a power equipment package, which included power front side windows (also, rear windows on the crew cab), power locks, fold-away black power mirrors, and a one-touch-down driver’s side window. XL models offered other improvements in the cab: a 40/20/40 split bench seat and tilt-wheel steering. Additional color blends available for the Harley-Davidson version of the F350 were Medium Wedgewood Blue (with Black Flames), Dark Stone with Black Flames, and Black with Medium Wedgewood Blue Flames.



The F350 was offered in three configurations: Regular Cab, Crew Cab and SuperCab. All were available in two- or four-wheel drive versions. The Super Duty Club has flat frame rails intentionally designed for installation of aftermarket bodies. In order to facilitate easy servicing, the F350 sports two-piece frame rails. A transfer case skid plate, which provides more protection, is an option on Crew and SuperCab four-wheel drive models.



For 2007, customers had choices for various fuel tank configurations. They could opt for the standard position (aft of the axle), middle, or both (diesel only). Two tanks afford up to 59 gallons of fuel capacity on “dually” (DRW) diesel models.
Electric throttle control on all engines provides performance advantages. And “stationary elevated idle control” gives commercial users increased engine speed in order to operate aftermarket power takeoff systems (PTOs).



Engine choices are Ford’s Power Stroke® Turbodiesel engine, which produces 325 horsepower and 570 lb. ft. of torque; the gasoline 5.4 L Tritonâ„¢ V-8, which creates 300 horsepower and 365 lb. ft. torque; and the gas 6.8 L, Tritonâ„¢ V-10, which puts out 362 horsepower with 457 lb. ft. torque. Trucks can be ordered with the five-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission, or the six-speed manual.
