GVWR on 2013

Hey guys, I'm looking at purchasing a new pickup. When I look at them some say 10,000 GVWR package and some say 11,500 GVWR package. When I asked the salesman what the difference was he told me one could haul more!! I said thanks genius.

So what do you get with the higher rating? Should it be a factor in what truck I pick? All trucks I'm looking at are 2013 F350 CCSB.

Thanks for your help

It's the exact same truck. Some states charge more for registration on trucks over 10000 so that's why ford offers one. If your state doesn't do this then I'd get the higher gvwr.

I really think it depends on what your hauling if your trailer pay load is heavy I'd say go with the 11.5 if its not might as well go with the 10,000 save on weight and fuel.just my opinion

Are you sure both trucks are 350's? My super cab longbed F250 has a 10000 GVWR.

+1. The 10K limit is artificially low due to state regulations. Same truck.

The 10k is the standard F350 and if you opt for the tow package + the camper package it ups it to 11.5k and you get the rear swaybar on the srw. That's the way I built mine and I love it. I did change the shocks to Bilstein all around and that's a great improvement too.
