The F series is the series of Ford’s full size pickup trucks from the most respected and original Ford Motor Company. They have served America for the last 50 years and every time they bring a change to their models there is something to look out for. The Ford F250 is thus a model of F series pickups which is estimated to make a mark because of its features, power, designs and other specs. The F250 falls under the Super Duty pickups of Ford which also include F350 and F450.
The Quite Different Beast:
This full sized truck is a mixture of style, comfort and innovative ergonomics. The mixture of such qualities thus makes impressive torque capacities, towing rating and payloads. This is a vehicle with more kick and muscle power than Ford F150 which is also a good pickup from ford. But the engine and performance level of F250 is much higher than F150. Pickup truck drivers need boost for payloads and the Super Duty with its incredible engine power can give that boost.
There are indeed various reasons for which the Ford F250 has become so popular off late – the mind boggling variety of body styles like extended cab, crew cab and regular cab, power train options, engine varieties and trims to choose from. This variety of options enables every user to find a Heavy Duty hauler from oneself. There are altogether four trim levels- base XL, midlevel XLT, off-road oriented 4WD and Plush Lariat.
While other pickups from various brands heavily improving their power and performance, the F250 is eminently capable of doing the daunting task with various engine levels. The recent development of the truck had been the stronger turbo diesel V8 engine which gives better ride and handling. There are three different models of Ford F250 Super Duty engines- they are as follows:
a) The standard version of F250 has a 5.4 liter V8 engine of 300 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque.b) The Optional version of F250 has a 6.8 Liter V10 engine with 362 horsepower and 457 lb-ft.c) The all new 6.4 liter V8 turbo diesel with 350 horsepower and 650 lb-ft.
The transmission choices of the Super Duty vehicle are – six speed manual transmission and five-speed automatic transmission. Besides that you have the choice of two wheel drive and four wheel drives for sheer power. And for those eco friendly lovers who are thinking for a concept car the Ford F250 brings you the amazing Super Chief which pays tribute to bold optimism character of Americans. This hydrogen run V10 engine provides 12 percent of fuel economy and nearly 500 miles per fill.
