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.

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

Great truck

A drug addict crossed the yellow line and hit me head on. Long story short, the Chevy 1/2 ton was sent to the junkyard and its driver went to the hospital. My truck has about $5000 worth of damage, and I barely felt a thing.




Superduty vs ram

Traded a '03 Ram 2500 4X4, 5.8 hemi for this. Here are my observations so far: The Ram was an excellent truck, just needed something bigger. Best points that Ram has over the Ford are: - Has better storage under front seat, rear seat and front arm rest. - Better cup holders. - Better turn radius. Best points Ford over Ram: - Better ride when loaded. - Power slide back window. - Lights in outside mirrors. -5-speed auto transmission. Trailer Brake Controller! If no other reason to buy a Ford, this is it. If you tow, this is the best!

I bought this truck to replace my 1999 F-350. This 2005 is basically the same truck but with the 2005 upgrades. The 2005 has some extremely nice features and some great safety features: The power sliding back window. The heated seats. The backup sensors. The built in trailer braking system in the Tow Command package (it is everything and more than the ads depict; the best trailer brakes I have ever used). The running light/turn signal on the towing mirrors. The heated/sliding towing mirrors. The lighted vanity mirrors. The speed volume control on the radio. The power passenger seat. The shorter turning radius. The 5 speed automatic transmission. A better drive over all.

We purchased our truck on the 21st.of Sept.and as of today (18th.of Dec.)we have over 7,500 miles loged on it. We use it to pull a fifth wheel trailer,and our combined weight is around 21,000.This truck is simply outstanding.We have covered parts of 7 states so far and driven all types of roads. In all conditions of driving we couldn't ask for a better riding or performing truck. I only have one small dislike and that is dirt or water down the sides of the vehicle. By widening the front axel as they did it allows more water and mud to be thrown down the sides,there by makeing it harder to keep clean. I have NEVER owned or driven a better performing truck !!!!!
