Interior Features/Looks


2019 Ford F-350

The 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty's interior is both comfortable and functional. With a digital display that allows drivers to check tire pressure of both the truck and trailer. There are enough physical buttons so that you don't always have to hunt and peck on a screen.

The spacious interior of the 2019 Ford F-350

While the hard buttons are small and close together, most functions can be handled purely on screen through Ford's Sync3 system. Knobs still control the climate control temperature and the sound system volume and tuning.

Power-retractable steps are standard on Platinum models, and they greatly enhance ease of entry and exit, although it's still a leap. The front roof-pillar handle helps steady you on your way in.

The 2019 Ford F-350's upright style of driving is appropriate for the class. Adjustable pedals and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel are part of the memory package; ensuring different-size drivers can be comfortable.

There's no lack of interior room, with a rear seat generous in width and knee room. Front passengers can set their seats wherever they want and not intrude into the rear passenger room. Headroom is prodigious as well, with plenty of elbow and shoulder room at all seating positions.

It's a big truck, so blind spots are expected. The blind spots created by the tall hood line and long rear bed are mitigated somewhat by the button-activated camera system, and blind-spot detection helps on the sides.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

The Silverado's dashboard is about as basic and user-friendly as they come. The buttons are large, easily readable, easy to operate, and within arm's reach. The solid switchgear contributes to ease of use.

Proper grab handles and side steps help with entry. Still, this is a tall truck, and most adults will have to do some climbing to get in.

Storage space inside the 2019 Ford F-350

The optional power-adjustable pedals, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a highly adjustable driver's seat mean you can pretty much get the position you want. As with most trucks, this big, seating position may be a bit high for shorter drivers. Pick any seating position in the 3500HD and you'll have plenty of room to spread out. Headroom, legroom and shoulder room are all in great supply.

The massive windshield and door pillars give the 3500 big blind spots. The large towing mirrors help with lane changes, but knowing where the corners of the truck are can be tough.

Value Trade-In

Technology


2019 Ford F-350

Just because it is a pickup truck, doesn't mean the 2019 Ford F-350 isn't a modern and high-tech vehicle. Fords SYNC3 infotainment system and various safety features help businesses in Oak Forest, IL, work more productively.

Audio & Navigation

Ford's Sync 3 system is easy to understand and use. The large touch surfaces make navigating a breeze.

Dual USB outlets and Bluetooth connectivity make sure smartphone integration in the 2019 Ford F-350 is a piece of cake. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are included.

Driver Aids

The optional adaptive cruise control system inside the 2019 Ford F-350 works appropriately. It's especially helpful when you're trying to stay under the towing speed limit.

Voice Control

Sync 3's voice control system recognizes natural language and works on the audio, navigation and, of course, phone calls. Push the voice button longer, and you can tap directly into Siri or Android voice prompts.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Audio & Navigation

The menu logic on the Chevy MyLink system is easy to understand, but it's not the most elegant in the class. Touchscreen responses are slower than with the class leaders' systems. While we like the optional 8-inch touchscreen, it doesn't stand out much from rival systems.

Smartphone Integration

Our experience with smartphone devices was poor, with many dropped connections over the course of the test. We generally like the interface when it's working, but even then it takes quite a bit of time to load music. It's best to use Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Voice Control

Several attempts to use the Silverado's built-in voice controls fell short, with a success rate of about 50 percent. It was easier to use the physical knobs and touchscreen controls. That said, Siri and Google Voice can be accessed if you've paired your smartphone by holding the talk button longer.
