Ford F-Series Comparison

Comparing the F-Series Trucks the Texas Way

In Texas, we pick our trucks for the work we need to do and the Ford Motor Company is great at building them. The F-Series has been the best-selling truck in America for 38 years and the best-selling vehicle for 33 years. This feat is impressive for any manufacturer and has never been accomplished by any other company. The F-Series includes the F-150, F-250 Super Duty, and F-350 Super Duty, all the way up to the F-750 that is used to pull semi-trailers. The biggest difference between the F-Series trucks is their sizes. The F-150 is a light-duty truck but the F-250 & F-350 are a part of the Super Duty lineup. Trucks with the designation F-450 and above are all considered Commercial Vehicles. Ford's F-150 has many variations, over 140 to choice from. You have 4 engine options, 3 cab styles, 2 drive types, and 6 trim options. The Super Duty trucks have a few variations. Single Rear Wheel (SRW) and Dual Rear Wheel (DRW) have different payloads and towing capacity. Also, the other variation is the choice between gasoline and diesel. When you are considering a Ford truck, think of the towing capacity as the main difference between these 3 powerhouse models. Also, remember that this comparison is made against the 2016 base model for each truck size.
