Overview

What's New

The 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup still feels fresh from its 2020 makeover and it receives minor updates that include new blue, silver, and gray exterior colors (that replace existing blue, silver, and gray colors) and expands the availability of the tailgate step and the adaptive steering system as stand-alone features, however, it loses the option of a heated windshield wiper park area. The F-250 is the smaller of a pair of heavy-duty trucks that includes the F-350.

Choosing your Ford F-250

There are six trim levels of the 2021 Ford F-250. The work truck XL starts at $35,925, the XLT is $40,790, the Lariat is $49,105, the King Ranch is $61,290, the Platinum is $67,210, and the Limited is $85,885.

Not all trims are available in every cab and bed size configuration. The XL and XLT trims are offered in a Regular Cab, a Supercab, and a Crew Cab (with four full-size doors). The Lariat trim cuts out the Regular Cab and the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims are only available in the super-spacious Crew Cab.

Engine Choices

The F-250 is available in three engine configurations. The standard 6.2-liter V8 can be upgraded to the 7.3-liter V8 for $2,045 in all trims except for the Limited trim which comes fitted with a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8, otherwise a $10,495 option.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueMax Fifth-wheel/Gooseneck Towing CapacityMax Conventional Towing Capacity

6.7L Turbodiesel V8475 hp1,050 lb-ft22,800 pounds20,000 pounds

Automatic transmissions are standard across the board, however, the 6.2-liter engine is fitted with a six-speed gearbox and the other engines are mated with a 10-speed unit. Rear-wheel drive is standard and an automatic part-time four-wheel-drive system with low range is offered for $2,790 on all trims except the Limited trim, where it is standard.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The F-250 fits three occupants in Regular Cab and six in the SuperCab and Crew Cab configurations. Headroom measures nearly 41 inches and shoulder room is about 66 inches while legroom ranges from 33.5 inches in the SuperCab to 43.6 inches in the Crew Cab.

The long bed length measures 98.1-inches long, 21.1 inches tall, and 66.9 inches maximum wide (50.5 inches between wheelhouses). The short bed is 81.9 inches long. Payload ranges from 3,040 pounds in the Crew Cab with four-wheel drive to 4,260 pounds in the Regular Cab with rear-wheel drive.

The F-250's headline-grabbing maximum towing rating is limited to the slimmest configuration with the strongest

Safety Features

The F-250 starts lean but piles on the advanced safety features with the more retail-friendly trims. Still, the basic XL trim offers automatic emergency braking for $115 and blind-spot monitoring with trailer coverage and rear cross-traffic alert for $540 which are included on the XLT and up trims.

Lane departure warning is part of a $1,655 package and standard on the King Ranch and up trims. Adaptive cruise control is a stand-alone $740 option on the Lariat (with the Crew Cab) and King Ranch and included on the Platinum and Limited trims. Automatic collision notification is standard on all trims.

Connectivity

The XL trim is equipped with a 4.2-inch LCD, one USB port, Bluetooth audio, SYNC, and 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability. The XLT trim and up receive an 8-inch touchscreen, Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, another USB port, and an AC outlet in the front dash panel. The Lariat trim is standard with a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Ford F-250

XL - From $35,925

The base trim is one of the most basic vehicles available and is best suited for fleet customers. A molded-in-black grille, door handles, and bumpers are joined by crank windows, manual door locks, and vinyl seats.

The $1,825 STX Appearance Package adds bright chrome grille, bumpers, and hub covers, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and cruise control while the Power Equipment Group modernizes the truck slightly with heated mirrors, power door, and tailgate locks, remote keyless entry, and upgraded door-trim panels for $865.

With SYNC 3 ($450) fitted, the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist can be had for $1,655, including a surround-view camera system, trailer reverse guidance, and a high-mounted rear camera to assist with hooking up a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer. The $400 FX4 Off-Road Package requires four-wheel drive and adds skid plates, hill-descent control, and stiffer shocks.

XLT - From $40,790

The XLT includes the two big primary packages of the XL trim, adds a cloth interior and an integrated trailer brake controller, and offers the XLT Value Package for $1,340. That group includes an eight-way power driver’s seat, rear parking sensors, fog lights, and under-seat storage. Other worthwhile options are the $280 power-folding and telescoping mirrors with driver’s side auto-dimming, integrated spotlights, and approach lighting and power-adjustable pedals for $120. The Crew Cab also offers a $1,495 panoramic sunroof

With the Crew Cab, four-wheel drive, and an upgraded engine, the $3,975 Tremor Off-Road Package is available, including a suspension that has been lifted and tuned for greater articulation, 35-inch tires with gloss-black wheels, and a locking rear and limited-slip front differentials. Skid plates and a rock crawl mode help ease the stress of navigating rough terrain.

Lariat - From $49,105

The Lariat trim is fitted with leather seats that are 10-way power-adjustable for the driver and 8-way for the passenger, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-inch digital display in the gauge cluster, dual-zone climate control, additional power ports for the rear-seat passengers, and a power sliding rear window.

The Lariat Value Package is offered for $710 and includes heated and ventilated front seats, power-folding and telescoping mirrors, and remote engine start.

The Lariat Black Appearance Package is new for 2021 and includes body-colored front and rear bumper and painted gloss-black wheels, running boards, grille and Ford emblem, fender vent surrounds, headlight surrounds, mirror housings, and rear wheel-well liners for $4,295. Four-wheel drive is required.

The Lariat Ultimate Package is $3,495 although it is limited to the Crew Cab. It features proximity entry, heated and ventilated front seats with memory positioning for the driver, ambient interior lighting, a power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, power-folding and telescoping mirrors, wireless phone charging, and navigation.

The $1,000 adaptive steering system helps to provide a relaxed highway yet fast turning at low speeds and the distinctive quad-beam LED headlights are available for $1,180 which also includes LED taillights and fog lights. Heated rear seats are offered for $300.

King Ranch - From $61,290

The King Ranch is distinguished within the lineup by its unique leather surfaces with an antique finish, a two-tone paint job, and running W’s placed around the interior and exterior.

The Chrome Package is standard as is the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist package and heated and ventilated seats. The King Ranch Ultimate Package is $3,350 and includes LED exterior lighting, a panoramic sunroof, multi-contour seats, and power-deployable running boards.

Platinum - From $67,210

The Platinum trim includes unique leather seats, wood interior trim, and brushed aluminum accents. The features of the King Ranch Ultimate Package are standard - just without the ranch theme.

Limited - From $85,885

The Limited adds all of the features of the Platinum trim and adds unique leather and black ash wood interior accents. The Limited also includes the most expensive powertrain configuration as standard.

The XLT trim offers today’s expected level of features with the looks to separate itself from the trucks at the worksite.
