About Ford F-350

Ford F-350, as a light-duty pickup truck, has been produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company since 1953. The first Ford F-350 derived from the F4. Earlier years, Ford F-Series truck lineup consists of the light-duty and Super Duty lineup, but since 1999, the Super Duty lineup got separate from F-Series and became an independent lineup. So, in some sense, Ford F-350 had been manufactured from 1953 to 1999 through nine generations. And during its long lifespan, Ford F-350 along with its other cousins has been the best-selling pickup trucks in America.
The eighth-generation Ford F-350 (1987-1991) weighed one ton but had the max towing capability of 11,000 lb built as a chassis cab model. Like others in the F-Series, Ford F-350 was also available in trim levels including Custom, XL, XLT Lariat and Nite. As a four-wheel drive pickup truck equipped with leaf springs and a solid Dana 60 axle, Ford F-350 was powered by engines ranging from 5.8 L V8 to 7.5 L V8 with fuel injector mated to 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions. Then the ninth-generation Ford F-350 (1991-1999) received a major upgrade and added SVT Lightning and 4x4 Offroad trim levels. Before it was replaced by the Ford F-350 Heavy Duty, Ford F-350 had been having similar powertrain retained from the previous generation.
