Ford Super Duty – F-350 Auto Transportation
The Ford F-350 is part of Ford’s F-Series line, which until 1998 included the F-150 through F-450 variants. In 1998 Ford moved the F-150 to a separate line, making the F-250, F-350 and F-450 variants into what is known today as the Super Duty lineup. The Ford F-230 comes in four variants: the XL, XLT, Lariat and King Ranch. All four F-230 models feature the same engine options: either a 6.2L V8 gasoline engine, or a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbodiesel, as well as the same two bed options: a 6 3/4ft bed or an 8ft bed. The XL and XLT both come with either a regular cab, crew cab or SuperCab, depending on which model you choose, while the Lariat only features a craw cab or a SuperCab, and the King Ranch only features a crew cab. The F-350 features the same model names with the exact same features as their F-250 counterparts; they’re just bigger because they’re 350 models.
The Lariat comes with adjustable pedals standard, while dual-zone air conditioning is available on only Lariat and King Ranch models The trucks of the F-350 line are priced according to what they can do, their size, and what they come available with. The F-250 XL comes in at $29,455 MSRP, which is pretty good for such a large truck. The XLT is priced at $33,130, the Lariat at $40,265 and the King Ranch at $47,575. If you’re looking at buying an F-250 out of state, however, and hiring and auto shipping company to get it to you, here are a few things you may want to be aware of before doing such a thing.
The F-350 models are even larger than the F-250, which are all overweight as is. The XL and XLT models might be small enough to get away with putting them on a standard auto transport carrier, but the Lariat and King Ranch models are definitely going to be too big to fit, and will require a special flatbed transport truck in order to haul them. The price, too, will increase, should you have to ship it on a flatbed, because flatbed auto transporters aren’t what we call “common” on the road…at least not like your typical ten-car transport truck. Every commercial truck is required to stop at weigh stations, to make sure that their truck is not over the maximum weight limit – if it is, fines can happen, not to mention huge delays for transporters. Most auto transportation companies won’t bother with trying to fit an F-350 onto a regular truck; it just can’t happen. Make sure to let your auto transportation company know which specific F-350 model you’re shipping, so they can find the right carrier for you.
