Trucks have been coming in these three designations for years: 1/2 tons, 3/4 ton, and 1 ton. What is the purpose of buying a new truck in any of these 3 specs? Why would you want a 1 ton vs a 1/2 ton truck? I just don't understand why people shell out $60k for a brand new F350 when it seems like there isn't much you can do with an F350 that you couldn;t do with an F150. I understand that the F350 is obviously bigger, stronger, and more powerful but I ecspecially do not see much of a difference between the F250 and F350.
