Review of the 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty

  • When it comes to heavy-duty pick 'em ups, you can choose between a Chevy, a Dodge, a Ford or a GMC. Match your needs to the truck with the most capability to meet them, and you're all set. Of course, which model you select is also guided by brand loyalty. If you're a Ford kind of guy or gal with big loads to haul or tow, the F-350 Super Duty pickup will handle up to 11,500-pounds GVWR or a 12,500-pound conventional trailer.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged construction, multiple configurations, competent off-road capabilities, 12,500-pound conventional trailer capacity.

  • Cons

    Noisy drivetrains, poor gas mileage, large size, stiff ride when not loaded.

  • What's New for 2002

    A six-speed manual transmission is now standard with the 5.4- and 6.8-liter V8 gas engines, and the 6.8-liter has been enhanced to provide better performance and shift feel than before. If you order an automatic transmission, a gauge that measures transmission oil temperature replaces the battery gauge, and you can opt to add adjustable pedals to your Super Duty XLT or Lariat truck. Trucks with the Power Stroke diesel get an air filter service indicator. All F-350s get roof ride handles standard for 2002, and the available telescoping trailer mirrors can now be folded forward. SuperCabs have new rear door panel map pockets with molded-in cupholders. XL gets upgraded visors, while XLT and Lariat get new seats with increased width, bolstering and lumbar support; jewellike headlamp lenses and an available Advanced Security Group that includes remote keyless entry, automatic door locks and automatic headlamps. Optional on the XLT Crew Cab and standard on the Lariat Crew Cab is a power front passenger seat. The Lariat also gets a larger standard overhead console with improved storage.

Can it be any better.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

This truck, with a little money for upgrades can pull trailers with ease. Some or these trailers exceed 20,000 pounds and holds speeds up steep hills with ease. With an exhaust brake the down hills are safe and enjoyable. The only downside is the transmission will eventually fail to handle all the power from the engine. When doing extreme towing be prepared for a transmission upgrade. Once done this truck is a beast.

After own a 1995 F-350 the 2002 was a complete surprise. They have improved so many of its features espically the ride and cab room it beats both the Chevy's/GMC's and the Dodges without a doubt.




Excellent vehicle choice

Vehicle: 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Basically, it is a fine vehicle and I am very glad I purchased it. The truck, though relatively new (10053 miles and one year older) runs and rides like the day I drove it home - the only difference is the mileage has steadily gotton better. I am getting about 22 mpg on the highway and 15.8 in the city. I am very pleased and have no regrets. I have read and heard of problems with them from bad trannys, rear ends, shorted wiring harnesses; but haven't witnessed any of this on my truck.




Great so far !!!!

Vehicle: 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

I pull a 3 horse trailer weekly, fully loaded. The engine response, comfort, giddyup and go that this Diesel powerstroke has is incredible. I now have no problems pulling onto the highway and passing on the highway is easy. I do my own servicing and it is easier than I expected. The roomy interior and comfortable seats are enjoyed by my family of five. The dealership was easy to work with which I did mostly over the internet. No pushing by the sales person, Dennis Frizzell and the service department when I have spoken with them is very friendly, and are more than eager to help even after the sale.




It doesn't get better than

The ford f-series just stands above all other trucks because its just the most fun to ride and can haul almost anything you can put on it. Try your best to look for a better truck, but there's nothing better at the moment.




Had to have it

Vehicle: 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Traded in an 01' F150 crew cab for this baby and I couldn't be happier! I've been driving Fords for the last 10 years and I actually looked at the Chevy's this time but there was no comparison. F350, 4x4, crew cab, Lariat package, 7.3 lt. deisel...what more could you ask for. I LOVE IT!
