2014 Ford F-350 Interior
Heavy-duty trucks have not historically known for their luxurious boats, but that has been changing in recent years, and IF-350 has fallen a bit behind. One look at the Ram 3500’s new lavish interior, you will find that Ford got little room to improve. Plastics, Hard dominate the 2014 Ford F-350 on dashboard lower trim levels, and for better or for worse, the general appearance screams “work truck.” But to do what is right, i Lariat creates Vibe distinctly upscale skin and MyFord Touch interface, while the King Ranch and Platinum model are fancier still.
There is no shortage of storage in the 2014 Ford F-350. There’s a bin lockable available under the 40/20/40-split front bench seat, and the seat-back in the middle folds down to serve as an armrest. One bin lockable long lived under the rear seats, and includes a 12 volt power point. I found 40/console/40 front bench can swallow a laptop or even hanging files or other objects related to the business; it also provides a 12 volt power point of its own, and inverter 110 volt.,
A standard from the Lariat on up is a great multifunction display in the Cluster tool that allows the driver to customize settings, towing and off-road information, trip computer and relays, fuel economy. Lariat and higher trims also get the infotainment system MyFord Touch, which includes two USB ports, a slot SD card and an 8-inch touch screen phone control, climate control, entertainment and navigation features and includes an expanded voice control vocabulary. Note that this version of MyFord Touch includes a physically large buttons for climate and audio controls allows it to be operated wearing work gloves.
