Review of the 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty

  • Class-leading payload and towing capacity along with a wide variety of configurations and special-edition models make the aging Super Duty a viable option for those who need a hard-core pickup civilized enough for everyday use.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged construction, multiple configurations, competent off-road capabilities, high towing and payload capacities, optional diesel is very powerful and economical.

  • Cons

    Noisy drivetrains, gas engines' poor mileage, vague steering, spotty build quality.

  • What's New for 2005

    The F-350 benefits from a new front suspension for improved handling, a standard TorqShift five-speed automatic on all trims, and increased towing and hauling capacities increased across the board. The Harley-Davidson edition package sports cosmetic revisions this year.

Good idea, bad engineering.

Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

The truck in general is a good truck. But at 30,000 miles I had the turbo replaced. Now with 50,000 miles my gauge cluster, shocks, and CD player are being replaced. The front suspension is being rebuilt by the dealer due to a terrible shimmy at all speeds (TSB). The brake pedal can be pushed all the way to floor, which I'm told is normal for this truck. Only 6 months old and 50,000 miles, I wouldn't recommend this truck to anyone, BUY A DODGE. I was a long time Ford fan, not anymore. Luckily I'll be getting a new one at 200,000 miles
