In terms of design, the upcoming 2021 Ford F-350 won’t change that much. That includes all trim levels and all cab configurations. However, the appearance is now more modern, despite minor upgrades. The dimensions will remain intact, including the truck’s recognizable shape. Its boxy shape is the same, but the front fascia is now different.

According to Blue Oval manufacturer, this is the most powerful gasoline engine in the segment. It generates 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque.
It is a serious improvement over the previous gasoline powertrain. Still, a 6.7-liter diesel is optional, and it is the most potent engine in the F-350 truck. It can produce 450 horses and up to 935 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, Ford will improve its diesel engine that will now deliver over 1000 lb-ft of twisting power. That will make F-350 truck to tow over 35,000 pounds, which is impressive.
