2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty Overview
The Ford F-Series range of pickups is an ubiquitous sight on American roads, and there are good reasons for that. In addition to the F-Series’ reputation, earned over the past several decades, Ford offers its pickups in all guises, from utilitarian fleet vehicles to plush luxury haulers and from basic runabouts to massive trucks that can tow just about anything. The F-250 Super Duty is a truck for those who need a little more grunt than an F-150, but not quite as much truck as an F-350 or F-450. The F-250 got a redesign for 2017, so Ford carries over the design for 2019. Ford offers the F-250 with a 6.9-foot or 8-foot pickup bed and in Crew Cab, SuperCab or LB (extended cab) body styles. Trims include XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum.
The F-250 is a workhorse, so it offers a choice of two massive V8s. The first is a 6.2-liter unit with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The second is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel, making 440 hp and a whopping 935 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission -- and can be had with either rear-wheel drive (RWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD). The gasoline V8 will get most jobs done with a maximum payload of 7,680 pounds. Trucks this big don’t get a fuel economy rating from the EPA, so it would be silly to expect anything impressive in that department from an F-250, especially when towing. A long-range fuel tank is available -- and Ford claims that a turbodiesel equipped with it can travel up to 1,000 miles on a single tank, so the needle will be moving so slowly that you will at least think you’re getting good mileage.
The 2019 F-250 Super Duty shares quite a bit with its more basic F-150 cousin, including aluminum-intensive construction. It also features variable-ratio steering. Since this is a hauler, it has a tried-and-true ladder frame.
Four-door F-250s are very spacious inside, complete with plenty of handy storage bins for tools, mobile devices, and clipboards. As for features, there’s a wide range; this is why F-Series pickups have such a broad appeal. Base XL models are utilitarian -- they lack power windows and feature vinyl seats. The XLT adds cloth, a few power features, and a lower-tier infotainment system.
The Lariat model gets a better 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, power-adjustable pedals, and leather seats. The King Ranch comes with the famous cowboy-look leather interior plus luxury features like heated and cooled seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a better radio. The Platinum takes it even further with power running boards and an interior treatment that is different from the King Ranch, but equally nice. Ford has dropped CD stereos from its truck lineup for 2019, but WiFi data and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo have been made available.
Just as the EPA doesn’t rate the fuel economy of trucks this big, the usual authorities don’t always do full crash tests on trucks this big, either. Blind-spot monitors, parking cameras, and adaptive cruise control come on the F-250 Super Duty as options.
The F-250 Super Duty is one of the most popular big trucks around, in large part because it’s up for any kind of job. Yet it’s not banking on name recognition, as it’s still a very fresh design after a couple of years on the market. Hauling should be the primary concern when F-250 shopping, however. For people who want a basic big pickup, the smaller and cheaper F-150 will be fine for most jobs.
