When the Hamilton-based Stelco needed to find a vehicle for their plant operations use they turned to Thomas Solutions as their rental truck provider. Stelco has been around since 1910 and has been providing high-quality steel for various industries. With worldwide offices and a staff of around 2,000, Stelco is a company that expects high standards not just in their steel production but also in choosing reliable partners. This is why they tapped Thomas Solutions to provide the company with the 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty Crew Cab to meet the demands of their operations.
The F-series of trucks is one of the most successful models in Ford’s lineup. While the F150 is the popular choice for most people, businesses like Stelco require a more durable and powerful truck for their daily needs. The F350 Crew Cab 4×4 is the perfect choice for businesses that demand more from their trucks.
The 2019 F350 comes with a 6.2-liter gasoline V8 with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. That is stronger than the Chevy Silverado‘s standard 6.0-liter engine that musters 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. That’s also more than Ram‘s 5.7-liter V8 with 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
Ford also offers an optional Power Stroke 6.7-liter, turbocharged diesel V8 that delivers 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. Chevrolet’s 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 only has 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, while Ram’s 6.7-liter inline-six Cummins diesel is rated for 385 horsepower and 900 pound-feet.
The transmission is a six-speed automatic that can send power to all four wheels for better handling in slippery or rough terrain.
The F350 Super Duty offers enough space in its cabin for up to six occupants in the Crew Cab configuration. Behind the seats of the Crew Cab, you’ve got 31.6 and 52.1 cubic feet of space to accommodate the passengers comfortably without feeling cramped.
The Crew Cab has a 6.75-foot bed good for a maximum of 4,190-pound payload. These ratings compare favorably with the Chevrolet Silverado’s 5,761-pound payload and the Ram 3500’s 7,350-pound payload. The Super Duty is also a class leader for towing, with the ability to pull 34,000 pounds with a gooseneck trailer. The best a Ram 3500 can do with a gooseneck is 31,210 pounds.
The XLT trim adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, a chrome grille and bumpers, powered and heated mirrors, keyless entry with power door locks and windows, a power-locking tailgate, cruise control, carpeted flooring, cloth seats, a 4.2-inch LCD instrument cluster and satellite radio.
