2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The 2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup stands pat after a significant redesign in ’08. Featuring the standard 5.4-liter V8 and a six-speed manual transmission that powers out 300 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, this full-size pickup also offers a 6.8-liter V10 with a five-speed TorqueShift automatic or a heavy-hauling 6.4-liter PowerStroke twin-turbodiesel, also with the five-speed auto. The V10 puts out 362 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, and the turbodiesel grinds out 350 hp and an awesome 650 lb-ft of torque. The turbodiesel is standard in the Harley-Davidson trim. EPA estimates are not available for any of these engines.

Ford's F-250 is delivered in six trim levels: XL, XLT, FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, and the top-shelf Harley-Davidson. Five wheelbases are available - 137 inches, 142 inches, 156 inches, 158 inches, and 172 inches - and three cab configurations: Regular Cab, Super Cab, and Crew Cab. The longer wheelbases  use an 8-foot bed and offer 77.4 cubic feet of cargo space, while the shorter wheelbases use a 6¾–foot bed and feature 64.4 cubic feet of capacity. Of course, Ford’s F-250 is also offered in either rear-wheel- or four-wheel-drive configurations. Maximum payload capacity for the ’09 F-250 Super Duty is 3,150 lbs, and according to Ford, towing capacity with the standard 5.4-liter V8 is 12,500 lbs.

Standard features for the base XL trim level, which is available in all wheelbases and all cab configurations, includes a 7-pin trailer wiring harness, twin I-beam front suspension, 17-inch steel wheels, heavy-duty shock absorbers, a tachometer, AM/FM radio with two speakers, air-conditioning, and reclining front seats. XLTs, also available in all cab and wheelbase choices, feature a trailer brake controller, chrome 17-inch wheels, tilt-wheel steering, an MP3-capable CD player with four speakers, cruise control, power windows and locks, and heated, power mirrors. The Lariat, available only in Super and Crew Cab, adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, power front seats, Ford’s Bluetooth-capable SYNC voice-activated communications and entertainment system, dual zone temperature control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Sirius satellite radio.

The FX4 trim for 2009 is also offered only in Super and Crew Cab and 4WD configurations, and boasts a 4.1 axle ratio, skid plates, and a limited-slip differential as the F-250 line-up’s off-road workhorse. Ford offers a special FX4 Cabela edition with Cabela branding, 6-inch step tubes, a unique instrument panel, and Cabela leather.

For 2009, the top-line F-250 King Ranch and Harley-Davidson trim levels, again, only in Super and Crew Cabs and 4WD, offer a six-disc CD/MP3 player, power adjustable pedals and seats with driver’s seat memory, the five-speed TorqueShift automatic transmission, and in the case of the F-250 Harley-Davidson, the 6.4-liter V8 twin turbodiesel and five-speed automatic come standard along with Harley-Davidson-branded leather and chrome.

Options for the F-250 trims for ’09 include upgraded powerplants and transmissions, a six-disc CD/MP3 player, a trailer brake controller, tilt-wheel steering, cruise control, and Sirius satellite radio for the lower- and middle-priced trims. Leather, a DVD rear seat entertainment system, a rear backup camera, and a touch-screen nav system are available for the middle and higher-end trims, while dual alternators, a spray-in bed liner, and upfitter switches for powered accessories are offered for all trims.

Safety features for the F-250 Super Duty include four-wheel disc ABS, second-generation front airbags with passenger side deactivation, child safety tethers, the SOS post-crash system, and the Securilock anti-theft system. Crash test data is not yet available for the Ford F-250 Super Duty.

Drivers found the 2008 Ford F-250 to be somewhat gas hungry, but were impressed with the performance and interior design of this full-size workhorse.

Have Laptop, Will Travel. I'm retired and travelling the country in a 34' motor home. I'm really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano's national parks. Anyhow, when I'm not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I'm tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won't die.
