Time for a tow vehicle review. The Ford F-350 has been a popular hauler for decades. This truck came with the 6.2-liter gas engine rated at 385 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. Want more? You can get the torque-happy 6.7-liter diesel drivetrain for an additional $8795 and bump that number up to a whopping 925 lb.-ft. These modern Super Duty trucks also come with a host of towing options available and can be outfitted to haul a gooseneck trailer straight from the factory.

Not to nit pick, but just to avoid confusion, the 6.2 gas V8 is not turbo charged.

That was going to be my question. When did Ford start making really gnarly V8 ecoboosts?

I was thinking how does a 6.2 ecoboost not make more power than a 3.7 ecoboost?

Yea, I have never heard of a turbo 6.2 .

Sorry about that, guys. The truck’s spec sheet listed that, and it somehow made it through editing. It’s not turbocharged, and I’ll fix Ed’s post.

Your truck came from the factory with a standard 3" receiver with a 2.5" and a 2" reducer....  maybe someone swiped them.....
