Why the F-350 Super Duty’s Massive Towing Capacity Is Key (Video)

By -

There are 29,300 reasons why serious truck owners prefer the Ford Super Duty. Towing capacity is only one of them.

We recently shared with you Big Truck Big RV‘s brand new Ford F-1350 dually. Even though the channel covers all brands of trucks, their choice of ride has always been a Blue Oval. For two years now, the channel’s owner JJ has tooled around in a 2016 F-450. After receiving a juicy offer that nearly equaled the truck’s purchase price, he decided to take the plunge and upgrade to the latest generation Super Duty.

Admittedly, the Ram 3500 was a strong consideration, but you’ll be happy to know that he “wasn’t really considering GM trucks.” Mostly because they lack towing and payload capacity. Anyhow, that’s beside the point. The 2017 F-350 with the Max Tow package and 4.10 rear gears was the channel’s truck of choice. In this configuration, the Ford has the highest towing and payload capacity of any 3500 series dually truck on the market. In case you’re wondering, that’s a 29,300-pound gooseneck towing capacity and 21,000 pounds for conventional towing.

As JJ points out, this truck surpasses his 2016 F-450 in every measurable category, and not to mention an “astonishing” difference in technology. Another feature he covers in the video is the presence of tire pressure readings on the updated driver’s information display. Ford is the only automaker to offer TPMS monitoring for dually trucks at the moment.

All of these details offer further confirmation of what we already know — that Ford is leaps and bounds over the competition right now.
