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.

Great truck

Vehicle: 2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I have had this truck about 7 years now and I love it. I tow horses, ATV's and snowmobiles. 2-3 times a year I tow a trailer from the San Francisco bay area to North Idaho. It has always towed excellent. I average while towing about 14-15 MPG. Highway driving I get 19-20 miles consistently without towing. I really enjoy my truck and plan on putting 300,000 miles on it. As of 12/2/2008 I have 88,xxx miles. Great truck

Unbelieveable towing

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I just bought the truck (my first one and a diesel to boot) because I needed to move heavy equipment from Missouri to Georgia. I towed a 33 foot long 8 foot diameter Emulsion Storage tank on a 40 foot gooseneck trailer. The tank alone weighed 11,000 pounds. I could not belive how well it ran with this 40 foot behemoth on the back. I still got almost 13 miles to the gallon. It took me 19 hours but I arrived feeling good - the seating and interior are very comfortable. I love this truck. I can't wait to add a chip and cold air intake.




Dream truck

I always wanted an F-350. When I got it I was not disappointed. The only con is Ford did not design this truck with a infared ignition or any other kind of anti theft device. My truck has been stolen three times, recovered every time (lucky) with minimal damage. If you buy invest in a good viper systen vx770 and a fuel cut off system or a ECM cut off system. It dont stop em from breaking in. Buy it will keep em from taking it.

Looks good, runs and tows great, turbo gives lots of boost, seats are comfy, layout is good, and lots of room in the crew cab. Nice paint job, the anti-lock brakes (4-wheel disc) work properly if loaded or full. That alone is worth getting the truck. Mileage is 16 in town, 18-19 on freeway, but using fuel conditioner from Wal-Mart can get up to 21. Complaints: no armrests and the bed is too thin so it bends easily if loading pallets or heavy items. The master clutch cylinder is plastic and prone to need changing every 40-50k. Otherwise it is a great truck. Now have 97,000 miles.

Bought the truck with 76K on it. Dealer was fair, paid $19,500. The 7.3L Diesel gets 16 in town and 18 on hwy. Put new tires on it and have had no problems as yet. Pulls a 17 ft bass boat like it isn't there. Regular oil changes that I do myself for about 50 bucks. Yep, parking is a pain but it's worth it. Plan to keep the truck till the wheels fall off. If you want a truck that will haul a lot of stuff and 6 people comfortably the 1998 to 2002 F350 7.3L is good buy if you shop carefully. I plan to later install a chip, cold air intake, and 4.5 inch exhaust. That should help with better fuel mileage. Other than that I'll leave it stock. It's my first diesel and I won't go back to a gas engine!




Bad experiences with the turbo

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty

After the 1st year of ownership the truck went down hill. We had 4 different major oil leaks, starter problems, front end problems, and 2 times with fuel sensor problems. We finally traded it in for a Chevy Silverado. We couldn't depend on the truck to get us safely to our destination. Many of the items were covered by warranty, but you don't get anything for loss of use and the many times we had to make arrangements for our horses when the vehicle broke down. Ford would not help us even in arbitration.
