Review of the 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty

  • The Ford is a fine choice, but the newer Dodge and General Motors heavy-duty trucks should also be considered.

  • 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 unloaded.

  • What's New for 2003

    The 2003 model year sees a new FX4 Off-Road Package with skid plates, Rancho front and rear shocks, a steering damper and decals. The regular off-road package is no longer available, but a skid plate package can still be had on all 4WD trucks. All XLs can be had with a vinyl 40/20/40 reclining split bench that has a fold-down armrest with a console and cupholders. Ford has also upgraded seat material quality and installed a tailgate lock on this trim level. If you order a SuperCab or Crew Cab in XLT trim with the Sport Package, you can also order a reverse sensing system and a power driver seat. Late-availability additions include an optional power moonroof for Crew Cabs and optional heated telescoping trailer tow mirrors with integrated turn signals. A King Ranch version of the Crew Cab will also appear later in the year. Finally, the torque rating for the 7.3-liter turbodiesel V8 has been boosted to 525 pound-feet. By mid-year, expect an even more powerful 6.0-liter diesel to appear.

2003 f-350 6.0 diesel

Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB DRW (6.8L 10cyl 6M)

Great truck once the problems are worked out of the new diesel engine (dealers need more training on them). Truely rides like a limo but without any load in the rear, can get a bit bouncey. New five-speed auto trans gives lots of range on the power curve and good fuel economy. Love the new sun roof and the reverse sensing alarm (for which I recommend to anyone with a cap).

bought gmc forever but this is my second ford bought this year. sits up high and makes you feel like you are in a truck, unlike gmc making you feel like you are in a big car. absolutely love the power of the v-10. my wife tested the big gm engine driven 3/4 hd and the v-10 in her own way. she drag raced both a certain distance while flooring each and the ford did 15 mph better in the short distanced race. ask about the allison trans. on the gm's before you buy. built to gm's specs. not allison's. buy the ford, you won't regret it.
