Nomenclature for the Custom model is replaced by XL as the new base model and the Sport Appearance is likewise dropped. Interior refinements include a new speed control system employing a tap-up/tap-down adjustment feature and improved seat cushion padding for rear-seat comfort in SuperCab models.
Cost to DriveCost to drive estimates for the 1993 Ford F-350 XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.8L 8cyl naturally aspired 5M) and comparison vehicles are based on 15,000 miles per year (with a mix of 55% city and 45% highway driving) and energy estimates of N/A undefined in Virginia.
My truck came with a 7.3L Navistar
Diesel Non-Turbo engine. This is one of
the poorest motors ever built. I'm
currently on the second motor(I like
the crew cab room). There is a known
problem with pinholes developing in the
cylinder walls. This causes engine
coolant to enter the cylinder(major
repair expense). This motor is also
poor for hauling a heavy load.
I have to say this was the best truck I
ever owned. I was involved in a head on
with this truck and it held up to the
impact of a full size Chevy van at
70mph. I walked away unhurt but with a
truck that took an impact holding up to
the engine wasnt even touched from
other parts. I can say I will buy
another F350 Dually Diesel. The fuel
ecomomy was great, i was getting … like
19-23 on the highway empty and like 12-
15 with a loaded 4 car trailer. As i
have told others, this is the only
truck to buy.
We have a limited number of reviews for the 1993 Ford F-350, so we've included reviews for other years of the F-350 since its last redesign.
