3/4 Front Glamour 2014 Ford F-250

Expert's Rating

5.0Excellent

MPG N/A
The Ford F-250 is a brawny work truck that can be outfitted like a luxury SUV.

Introduction

The Ford brand is synonymous with quality pickup trucks, and the 2014 F-250 Super Duty Series continues that legacy. Totally redesigned in 1999 to give it a beefier look more suited to its workhorse designation, the F-250 has maintained its current look since this generation's introduction in 2008.

What's new for 2014

Unlike 2013, when Ford introduced the Super Duty Platinum trim level, 2014 won't see any major overhauls to the line.

Interior/Exterior

A revised MyTouch system has enlarged gauges and knobs for audio and climate controls knobs. Features like the Platinum's heated leather seats and premium sound system can transform the F-250 into a lavishly equipped work truck. In fact, customization potential is almost infinite. A popular feature is a fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailer tow option for serious towing duty. Also available are a moonroof, roof clearance lights, and a cable lock system by Master Lock.

Under the Hood

Buyers choose between two engines. The 6.2-liter FlexFuel V8 produces 385 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. A 6.7-liter Diesel V8, meanwhile, makes 400 horsepower and a stunning 800 pound-feet of torque -- this is the obvious choice for major towing tasks.

At the time of writing, there are no EPA estimates for the 2014 model year, but if last year's numbers are any indication, you can expect around 12 to 14 mpg combined.

Performance

There's a price to pay for all of that towing capability: handling. Due to the heavy duty suspension system used on these types of vehicles, a F-250's ride can be a bit bouncy, and the steering somewhat numb.
