2016 Ford F350 Price, Value, Ratings & Reviews | Kelley Blue Book (2023)

The 2016 Ford Super Duty is the big brother of the best-selling vehicle in America – the F-150. Where that light-duty truck’s capabilities end, these heavy-duty ones begin. Available as the F-250, F-350 and F-450, the F-Series Super Duty trucks are built for heavy towing and professional applications. In other words, these are trucks that thrive as being workhorses rather than mere family haulers or office commuters. Even so, while many of the basic models will live their lives as work trucks in fleets, a 2016 Super Duty can be outfitted with luxury-car levels of features and amenities. The F-Series line of heavy-duty pickups comes in a wide variety of cab and bed configurations, offered with stout gasoline or diesel engines.

Used 2016 Ford F350 Super Duty Regular Cab Pricing

The Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price for any individual used vehicle can vary greatly according to mileage, condition, location, and other factors, but here's a general idea of what buyers are currently paying for used 2016 Ford F350 Super Duty Regular Cab models when purchasing from a dealership.

Driving the Used 2016 Ford F350

As you might expect from a truck that can tow gargantuan loads, everything about the F-Series Super Duty is big and brawny. This extends to its experience on the road. From the moment you fire up the Super Duty’s massive gasoline or diesel engine to the time you climb down from the oversize cabin, this truck can make everything else feel small. This is helpful when pulling 10-plus tons, but it also can make the Super Duty a handful in more confined spots. This is further highlighted if you go with the top-dog F-450, which comes with a crew cab and dual rear wheels on each side. In parking lots, it can feel like a battleship. On the open road, however, the Super Duty glides about as smoothly as you could hope. Acceleration is also what you should expect, as this engine’s massive torque is for towing trailers, not burning rubber.

Interior Comfort

As you might expect in a vehicle whose trims and prices range so widely – from just over $33,000 for a basic F-250 XL trim to over $70,000 for an F-450 Platinum edition – the 2016 Ford Super Duty’s cabin ranges from Spartan to luxurious. In regular-cab form, seating is limited to three passengers. Crew-cab and super-cab models can seat up to six passengers, or five when equipped with two individual front seats and a center console. Lower-trim models have basic vinyl seating, while premium leather is offered on the other end of the Super Duty spectrum.

Exterior Styling

Ford’s Super Duty trucks exude their big and brawny nature, from the massive front grille to the equally large tailgate stamped with "SUPER DUTY" on the bottom. These trucks, which have not switched to an aluminum-intensive body like the F-150, can be configured with 6-3/4-foot or 8-foot beds, and with regular, super-cab or crew cabins. F-450 models come with two pairs of rear wheels that enable it to carry extreme loads. Even the smallest of the Super Duty models is large. A regular-cab model, fitted with an 8-foot bed, is 227.6 inches in length, while the longest comes in at 263 inches.

Favorite Features

31,200 POUNDS
That’s the fifth-wheel towing max of a properly equipped Ford F-450. And while the latest Ram 3500 Heavy Duty just topped that number by 10 pounds, Ford’s hauling ability is nothing to scoff at.

Even the most roughened rancher can appreciate soft leather, a ventilated seat and heated steering wheel. Heck, his calloused hands will appreciate it more than most of us. While the Ford Super Duty can come with few frills, for those with the means it can also be equipped like a luxury car.

Standard Features

As noted in the Interior section, the 2016 Ford Super Duty spans a broad swath in what you get. At its most basic F-250 XL form, you’ll still have to crank your own windows and will be limited to a 2-speaker AM/FM radio. In that model, designed as a basic work truck, even cruise control is optional. Moving up models brings far more creature comforts. All Super Duty trucks feature trailer-sway control and roll-stability control. On the F-250 and F-350, the gasoline-powered 6.2-liter V8 remains standard, while the F-450 gets the recently revamped Power Stroke 6.7-liter diesel V8.

Factory Options

If you’re hauling or towing with your 2016 F-250 or F-350, then step up to the brawnier 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8. Other options vary with trim level. Models with the diesel engine can be equipped with a Live Drive Power Takeoff to run auxiliary equipment such as a snowplow, truck lift or cement mixer, and the diesels can be equipped with a "Jake brake," just like a full-size semi. Lest you think the Super Duty is all work and no play, creature comforts abound, such as climate-controlled seats, navigation system, Sony premium audio and the MyFord Touch infotainment system.

Engine & Transmission

The 2016 Super Duty is available with two V8 engines, a 6.2-liter gasoline unit that is the base powerplant or, for those needing maximum power, a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel. Both are fitted to a 6-speed automatic transmission and can be had in 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive (4WD is standard on the F-450). The gasoline engine runs on regular unleaded and is E85 compatible. An option package can make the gasoline engine capable of running on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum (propane) gas (LPG), but does not include the fuel tanks or other equipment. In diesel models, Ford says nitrogen oxide levels are reduced more than 80 percent vs. previous generations. The EPA does not give fuel-economy ratings for either of these engines.

6.2.-liter V8
385 horsepower @ 5,500 rpm
405 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: NA

6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8
440 horsepower @ 2,800 rpm
860 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: NA

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
