2024 Ford F-250 Fuel Economy
Heavy-duty vehicles like the F-250 are exempt from EPA’s published estimates as they are expected to achieve very different results if they are hauling the loads of which they are capable.
2024 Ford F-250 Towing Capacity
The F-250 delivers impressive towing capability out of the box and sees significant gains when fitted with the diesel engine. In its ideal configuration, the F-250 is capable of towing up to 23,000 pounds while the popular crew cab and four-wheel-drive model is rated to haul 22,000 pounds.
Maximum payload is also dependent on the cab and drivetrain configuration with ratings varying from 4,268 pounds to about 3,600 pounds for the diesel-powered crew cab.
2024 Ford F-250 Dimensions & Cargo Capacity
The workhorse XL and XLT trims are standard with a regular cab and an eight-foot bed while an extended cab and crew cab are available on those two trims. The Lariat starts out with the extended cab while the King Ranch and higher trims are only available in crew cab form.
A 6.75-foot bed is standard on the crew cab and an eight-foot bed is available. Overall length varies from 231.8 inches for the standard cab with an eight-foot bed to 266.2 inches when fitted with the crew cab and the long bed. The most popular configuration extends to 250 inches in length, sits 80 inches wide, and stands 81.4 inches tall.
Inside, the extended cab provides 33.5 inches of rear legroom while the crew cab delivers 43.9 inches of legroom, 40.4 inches in headroom, and 65.9 inches of shoulder room for those in the back.
2024 Ford F-250 Safety
The F-250 starts off as a typical work truck in that it includes few active safety features, however, most can be added through optional packages such as the Driver Assist Package ($730) that adds automatic emergency braking and automatic high beams, and the 360-Degree Camera Package ($1,150) that adds blind-spot detection with trailer coverage, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors with automatic braking, and of course, a surround-view monitor.
The XLT includes the Driver Assist Package and the Lariat trim includes all of these systems. The King Ranch adds adaptive cruise control with lane centering, trailer reverse guidance, and front parking sensors.
2024 Ford F-250 Technology
The base trims feature an eight-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and remote connectivity that can be a boon for fleet customers.
The Lariat brings significantly more to the table with a 12-inch touchscreen, SiriusXM, navigation, wireless charging, and an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system with 18 speakers (in crew cab models).
