These iconic Ford trucks are the best-selling and most durable pickups on the market. But how do San Marcos shoppers decide which Ford truck is best suited for them?

Key Differences Between the Ford F-150, F-250 & F-350 Pickups

When San Marcos shoppers buy a truck, chances are the Ford F-150 is the first pickup that comes to mind. The Ford F-150 is America's best-selling and most well-respected truck for a reason.

Best-in-class horsepower, payload, and towing ratings play a big role. Robust performance capabilities, a plethora of tech and driver-assist features, and six hearty powertrain options headline the Ford F-150, which also offers an all-new electric model. The Ford F-150 Lightning is the lineup's first all-electric pickup and isn't offered by its Super Duty siblings.

Allow us to introduce you to the Ford F-250 and Ford F-350, a pair of powerful Ford Super Duty pickups that pack a punch. These two Ford truck models showcase higher performance capabilities with increased towing and payload capacities.

While they share the same trim levels, truck bed lengths, cab sizes, and V8 engines, the Ford F-250 and Ford F-350 have their differences. As expected, the Ford F-350 has the highest payload and towing capacities. That's why so many businesses and contractors use this as a commercial truck for their Heavy Duty needs in and around Austin, TX.

New Ford F-150 trucks carry the truck's classic design with a refined exterior styling and a military-grade, aluminum-alloy truck body. There are plenty of work and creative storage solutions, in addition to a dozen wheel designs from 17 to 22 inches, for Lockhart drivers to enjoy.

Which Ford F-150 cab size suits you best? Pick between an F-150 Regular Cab, Super Cab, or SuperCrew Cab. There's plenty of room for large payloads and large objects to haul with three truck bed lengths, ranging from 66 to 96 inches (5.5 feet to 8 feet). The Tailgate Work surface is a useful truck bed feature that Austin contractors will love.

Also useful on the job site in Austin or San Marcos is an available Interior Work Surface. The Ford F-150's cabin also offers a standard SYNC® 4 infotainment system. The standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety suite is standard with several advanced driver-assists.

The Ford F-150 also debuts the Lightning, which is an all-electric truck with instantaneous torque, equally impressive performance capabilities, and 300 miles of electric-driving range while producing zero emissions.

Special Features In the Ford F-250 & Ford F-350

Lockhart drivers have the same trio of powertrains to pick from in the Ford F-250 - the introduction to the Super Duty lineup - and Ford F-350:

  • 6.2-liter V8: 385 horsepower, 430 pound-feet of torque
  • 7.3-liter V8: 430 horsepower, 475 pound-feet of torque
  • 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8: 450 horsepower, 1050 pound-feet of torque

The improved suspension has a tighter rear spring and a reinforced midsection. The Ford F-350's dual rear wheels are larger and more muscular.

To make towing easier from Lockhart to Austin and all of Texas, both Ford Super Duty trucks offer available Trailer Sway Control and an available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert to support trailers up to 33 feet long.
