The world of HD pickup trucks is mostly about the Big Three but the competition between these three companies has been tougher than ever. Simply, these trucks are more capable than ever, but they are also more refined than ever. While the arch rivals, Silverado 3500 and RAM 3500 are notably younger, the F-350 still holds the crown when it comes to capabilities. It can tow more than rivals, which is the main measure in this class of pickup trucks. Therefore, the Blue Oval company doesn’t rush with the redesign and the 2021 Ford F-350 Dually is about to carry on in the same way.
Still, a couple of novelties are about to come. Just like the standard model, the dual-rear-wheel version will also come with a handful of updates, starting from new exterior color options. Three of them are in the offer – Antimatter Blue, Carbonized Gray, and Lithium Gray. Another thing we should mention is the addition of a bed step, which is now available in all models.
The novelty that is particularly interesting for the 2021 Ford F-350 Dually is that the Power Equipment package comes with a couple of notable additions, such as trailer-tow mirrors with heated glass and manually adjustable folding-and-telescoping functions.
2021 Ford F-350 Dually Engines
When it comes to powertrain, we won’t see any changes for the next year. So, you may count on three familiar engine options. The first one is a well-known 6.2-liter V8 gasoline unit, which puts out around 375 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Drivers who prefer gasoline can also pick the recently-added 7.3-liter V8, which puts out around 430 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Still, these trucks are mostly about capabilities and that’s where diesel engines rule. This particularly refers to Ford’s well-known 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 unit, which has been updated last year and now features a max output of 475 horsepower and an incredible 1.050 pound-feet of torque. This engine doesn’t feature the class-leading torque only, but also the best-in-class max towing capacity. If you pick a 2021 Ford F-350 Dually with this engine, you may count on a max towing capacity that goes all-away up to 37.000 pounds.
Trim Levels and Features
Other than a couple of the aforementioned additions, features and trim level organization are about to remain the same in the 2021 Ford F-350 Dually model. Therefore, count on a familiar offer, which starts with the XL model, which is a typical workhorse and doesn’t offer too many tech and convenience goodies. On the other side, the XLT already adds a couple of interesting things, such as an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s user-friendly and packed with a wealth of features including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Lariat adds even more goodies and seems like a great balance between the price and the amount of standard equipment. If you want some nice styling upgrades, the King Ranch seems like a perfect choice, as it offers a lot of unique styling details. Finally, there are Platinum and Limited are where things become very opulent and luxurious.
2021 Ford F-350 Dually Release Date and Price
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we expect to see 2021 Ford F-350 Dually sometime late in the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 37.500 dollars
