A Brute with style

Vehicle2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab LB (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
Review2011 F350 SRW 6.7 Powerstroke Diesel long wb. great truck, pulls anything hooked to it with ease. rear view camera is completely useless when hooking up a goose neck trailer, obviously the guys that designed it have never worked a super duty or they would have known most super dutys pull goose neck trailers, (or for you rv guys, a 5th wheel). Interior is quite ugly in the Lariat, seat inset looks like two week old road kill hide, but the seats are comfortable, great on long trips. The ride is great, smooth, handles beautifully for such a big truck and it is big. The engine is quiet and responsive, great torque, this thing could pull a house. It's a truck!
Best FeaturesSync system is great, hands free phone is wonderful. Good fuel economy, very quiet diesel and not smelly. Controls on steering wheel are great (got used to that with my Navigator), telescoping mirrors are great for pulling a fully loaded goose neck. Love the heated and cooled seats and the dual climate controls. Seats are very comfortable with a wide range of adjustments and the adjustable pedals are nice. The manual select is a good feature for those of us that do not want a 4-wheel drive. Absolutely wonderful ride for such a large vehicle, pulling a load or not. Great engine, Ford got it right this time.
Worst FeaturesA second camera in the cab brake light would be good for those of us hooking up to a goose neck or 5th wheel. Loose the strange looking leather inserts in the seats. They sure detract from what is otherwise a very handsome interior. More interior color options would be nice. (only one color option with the silver exterior-black). Put a guage for the DEF tank on the instrument panel, guessing is not good. Don't like having a plastic oil pan, road debris could knock and hole in it. Kind of cheesy for such an expensive truck.
