2016 Ford F-350 at Sunset Ford

When you’ve got tough jobs to tackle on a regular basis, it’s not always easy finding a heavy-duty pickup truck that’s capable of meeting your needs. Although it’s a competitive market, not all new trucks are created equal—but here at Sunset Ford, your trusted local Ford dealer in Sumner, Washington, we’re pleased to inform you that you’ve put your trust in the right hands by heading to a local Ford dealership. Your favorite American automaker’s exceptional collection of heavy-duty pickups goes well beyond the classic Ford F-150 into stronger, burlier models boasting serious capabilities. Ready to meet one of our favorites? Without further ado: the 2016 Ford F-350.

For starters, no other heavy-duty pickup truck on the auto market today delivers more standard gas output than the 6.2-liter V8 that powers the 2016 Ford F-350. Boasting 385 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, the engine derives from a single-overhead-cam design and utilizes dual-equal variable cam timing to optimize power throughout the entire output range. Assisting behind the scenes is the Ford six-speed TorqShift SelectShift automatic transmission, which is engineered for high-torque performance and dependability. When mated to the available 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine, the transmission’s available live-drive power takeoff provision gives you split-shaft capability by connecting an output gear directly to the engine crankshaft and powering an aftermarket power takeoff anytime the engine is running. In turn, you’ll enjoy access to a variety of accessories like salt spreaders, tree-trimming equipment, and more.

Just as you’d expect on a new heavy-duty Ford truck, the 2016 Ford F-350 comes fully equipped with a wide range of standard and available safety features, beginning with the Safety Canopy airbag system. Featuring roll-fold side-curtain airbags, this system adds important supplemental protection to the truck’s six other standard airbags. On single rear-wheel pickups, standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control reduces engine power and selective wheel braking, automatically engaging to help keep your wheels planted when necessary. Trailer sway control builds on the AdvanceTrac platform to help you maintain trailer control through selective braking and adjusted engine power. As a result, you’ll enjoy a noticeably enhanced stability and control experience, giving you greater confidence when towing large, potentially dangerous loads.
