Differences Between the 2017 Silverado 3500HD and 2017 F-350 Super Duty
Perhaps the biggest difference between these two trucks, and something that many drivers might miss, is the value offered by the Silverado 3500HD. Despite the difference in starting MSRP between these two vehicles being less than $1,000, the Silverado comes standard with some capabilities and features that the F-350 does not. For example, the entry level 3500HD comes with basic equipment that you would expect on such a truck like an auxiliary port, cruise control, seatbelt pretensioners and power door locks. On the entry level F-350, this equipment is either not available or optional.
As you can see from the chart, standard towing capacity is another way the 3500HD helps you get your money's worth. That said, both trucks are capable of boosting towing capacity significantly with 5th wheel or gooseneck towing configurations. When it comes to engine power, both models do offer a diesel engine option, but there is no beating the 3500HD's class-leading 445 horsepower. Another segment-exclusive for the Silverado 3500HD's diesel engine is its patented induction system that keeps water and debris away to retain high performance capability even in extreme conditions.
