The expectations for the new 2016 Ford F-350 are big, considering that it will come as a new generation model with a more attractive look and many details inherited from the F150. The new model will inherit the good things his little cousin has, such as the use of aluminum body panels, instead of the steel ones. This will provide a massive weight reduction of the vehicle. By the words of the people from Ford, when compared with the older models, the new Super Duty will have better performances in many segments. The 2016 Ford F-350 will be available in following options: 3 cab designs, 2 bed lengths, 2 rear axle options, and 5 trim levels. The interior will have a new, more car-like style, and plenty of high tech features which are necessary for the today’s modern vehicle.
Under the hood of the new 2016 Ford F-350, 2 engine options are expected. Base option will be the restructured 6.2 liter V8 petrol engine which makes 385 horses and 405 lb-ft of torque. The second option is a 6.7 liter V8 turbo diesel engine capable of producing up to 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque, which is probably the most powerful in its class. Both engines will be paired with the 6 or 8 speed TorqShift automatic transmission.
The outside changes and redesign of new F-350 starts with the reduced the overall weight. Ford is now using lightweight and strong materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum, and this way the new F350 will lose weight and improve general performances and mpg ratings. The estimated number of doors will be either two or four. It will also have bigger, redesigned alloy wheels, from 17 to 20 inches. The front and rear bumpers will get a retouch as well. Beautiful chrome details are also expected on the 2016 F-350, such as the massive, powerful and yet elegant front grille, which will give the vehicle a more luxurious look. Headlights will be slightly refreshed and powered by LED technology.
