F-250 Super Duty
The F-250 is included in Ford’s Super Duty truck line. With a three-quarter ton rating, the F-250 is a bit heavier than the half-ton F-150. Because the F-250 is a heavy-duty truck in comparison to the F-150, it’s going to pack more power. Not all the differences are under the hood, however. While they are both part of the famed F-Series line of trucks, both the F-150 and F-250 have their fair share of differences.
Both the Ford F-150 and F-250 are constructed from a fully boxed high-strength steel frame with a military-grade, aluminum-alloy body. The F-250’s frame is also constructed with 10 cross members for increased rigidity and stiffness, while the axles are also built stronger. Stronger axles are able to handle the increased power from the larger engine as well as additional weight.
F250 offer three different cab styles, including a Regular Cab and SuperCab option as well as a third crew cab choice. The F-250 only has two box lengths, 6.75 feet and 8 feet.
The F-250 offers the 6.7L Power Stroke turbo diesel as well as the 6.2L FFV Gas V8 engine. The 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine delivers 450 horsepower and a massive 935 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is paired with Ford’s TorqShift SelectShift six-speed automatic transmission. The 6.2L FFV Gas V8 engine offers 385 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. Featuring the TorqShift-G SelectShift six-speed automatic transmission, the 6.2L gas engine also offers the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package that permits the engine to run on natural gas or propane.
Although the F-250 is always built as a pickup truck, the bed can be removed and replaced with a light-duty upfit body.
