What’s New for 2018
Ford completely revamped the F-350 in 2017, so 2018 only brings small style tweaks and technology upgrades to the full-size pickup. The largest change is the addition of a new super-luxury trim called the Limited, with options available like two-tone leather seats and special exterior badging. 2017 updates included a full redesign of the pickup’s body, with a fully boxed steel frame and an aluminum build that made the pickup much more durable.
2018 Ford F-350 Options and Trim Packages
For 2018, the Ford F-350 is available in rear-wheel drive and optional four-wheel drive. Cabin options all include four doors and a range of sizes. The base 8-foot Regular Cab option is quite spacious for a rear box, while upgrades include the 6.75- or 8-foot Super Cab or the 6.75- or 8-foot Crew Cab. There are six trims available for the 2018 Ford F-350, with packages available for each trim.
- The base F-350 XL includes all the modern features you may need. Quad-dual halogen headlights provide upper and lower variable light, with more light output than any prior Super Duty truck from Ford. The base model comes standard with Ford’s advanced Roll Stability Control system to help keep your steering reliable even when towing large loads. Vinyl front and back seats are standard, as is air conditioning and a basic audio system. An optional package upgrade for the XL is the STX Appearance Package, with decks out the exterior in chrome and aluminum finish.
- The first upgrade from the base trim is the XLT, which includes technology like the TorqShift heavy-duty 6-speed automatic. This specially-designed Ford system handles heavy torque with lower RPM, letting gear shifts happen efficiently even at low speeds. The XLT also includes options for interior features like SYNC, which lets you select apps and make calls through the infotainment system using only your voice. The XLT also includes the option of upgrading to a V8 engine.
- The F-350 Lariat is a great blend of business-ready features and luxury parts. The SYNC feature that was optional in the XLT is now standard in the Lariat, allowing the driver to access the infotainment system with ease. The front seats are constructed with high-quality leather instead of vinyl as well.
- The King Ranch is the ultimate rancher model of the F-350, featuring tons of work-ready pieces and parts. Notable features include a lockable box under the seats to keep loose items secure and power-folding and power-heating rearview mirrors.
- The penultimate upgrade of the F-350 is the Platinum, which includes forward-thinking features like a blind spot monitoring system that alerts you when there is cross-traffic or when a vehicle is passing behind you. It also includes adaptive steering, which is useful at low speeds or high towing volumes.
- The newest trim is the Limited, which is the ultimate luxury upgrade for the vehicle. It includes all features mentioned above in the Platinum as well as a trailer tow camera system and special leather seating throughout.
The 2018 Ford F-350 handles impressively well at all speeds and in all trim levels, feeling light and springy even at its large size. The brakes are solid and the engine accelerates impressively fast, letting the vehicle reach from 0-60 in just 6.2 seconds. Furthermore, the F-350’s fuel economy is not too shabby for a car of this size, getting about 17 miles per gallon.
Overall, the 2018 Ford F-350 is an impressive full-size pickup that can meet all of your needs. It’s definitely deserving of a spot at the top of your full-size pickup truck list.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford F-350
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford F-350 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Ford F-350 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
