It’s amazing how a big rig like the F350 with a snorting 6.0L Power Stroke diesel can be so easy and comfortable to drive. This black example with black leather interior had the looks to go with the brawn, but even though it’s rated to tow 15,000 pounds, the steering is light, and the brakes bring it down from speed with authority. Cruising along on the highway you’d think you were driving something much smaller, such is its responsiveness to the controls, but when it’s time to work, there isn’t much that’s more capable. Space for occupants in the F350’s cabin is excellent, with equally impressive legroom and comfort for rear-seat passengers. That rear seat cleverly folds flat to create a rigid and rugged floor on which you can stow additional cargo.
