Truck Talk: SRW vs DRW

Do you know the difference between SRW and DRW? SRW stands for single rear wheel and DRW stands for dual rear wheel. Ford trucks like the Super Duty F-350 are available in both SRW and DRW, so you can pick the truck that suits your lifestyle.

The reason both options are offered boils down to stability and payload capacity when towing. If you plan on towing heavy payloads like RVs, boats, or horse trailers, DRW is the way to go. "Duallys," or dual rear wheel trucks, offer a higher gross vehicle weight (GVWR), which contributes to a higher towing capacity.

It's easy to feel the difference between SRW and DRW when you're behind the wheel. Riding in a DRW is a much smoother ride, especially when experiencing rough terrains and strong winds.
