: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

While Ford's F-150 received a complete redo last year, the brawnier F-250 Super Duty will remain in familiar form for a while longer. Like others of its ilk, the F-250 is cut out for demanding work that would humble an ordinary pickup.

What's New for 2016

The F-250 Super Duty receives minor equipment revisions only.

Ford F-250

Choosing Your Ford F-250 Super Duty

Befitting a truck of its mission, the F-250 comes standard with a 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. For maximum grunt, Ford also offers a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 with 440 horsepower and a suitably impressive 860 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission and your choice or rear- or four-wheel drive. Models equipped with the 6.2-liter can tow up to 15,900 pounds. That figure bumps to 16,600 pounds when you opt for the turbodiesel.

As usual, you have a choice of three cab styles: the three-person Regular Cab; the Super Cab with rear-hinged access doors and a full-width backseat; and the Crew Cab with full-size rear doors and more legroom in back. The Regular Cab comes only with a long (8-foot) bed, which is optional on the others in place of the standard 6.8-foot bed.

Trim levels run the gamut from utilitarian to indulgent:

Ford F-250

XL

Comes minimally equipped with vinyl seats and flooring, black exterior trim, and 17-inch steel wheels. Comfort features are limited to air conditioning and a basic AM/FM sound system.

Ford F-250

XLT

Gets a thoroughly upgraded interior with cloth seating and full carpeting, power windows and locks, and a four-speaker sound system with Bluetooth, CD, and satellite radio. Outside are 18-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, and full chrome trim. Other perks include blind-spot mirrors, an integrated trailer brake controller, and the Ford Sync voice command system.

Ford F-250

Lariat (Super and Crew only)

Offers a slew of trim and convenience upgrades, including leather upholstery, power front seats, power-folding mirrors, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and a power-sliding rear window. The MyFord Touch infotainment interface is also standard, along with an eight-speaker sound system on Super Cab models and a premium Sony system on the Crew Cab.

Ford F-250

King Ranch (Crew only)

Adds Western-themed design elements throughout, including exclusive leather upholstery and two-tone paint. You also get remote start, navigation, and heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory.

Ford F-250

Platinum (Crew only)

Equipped like the King Ranch, but with an urban luxury design theme that includes 20-inch polished wheels and high-grade leather trim. A heated steering wheel is also part of the deal.

All 4x4 models are eligible for an Off-Road package with hill-descent control, skid plates, a electronic locking rear differential, off-road shocks absorbers, and all-terrain tires. Fleet operators might go for the Ford Work Solutions package, which provides an in-dash computer for business needs.

CarsDirect Tip

Most of the functional upgrades found on the King Ranch and Platinum are optional on lesser trims, so you can get the equipment you want without having to spring for the full luxury treatment.
