Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup trucks are available with either a 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 385 horsepower or a turbocharged 6.7-liter V-8 diesel engine that produces 440 horsepower. Both engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. The F-250 is available with either a regular, SuperCab or SuperCrew interior and two different bed lengths. The truck also features four-wheel anti-lock disk brakes and a 35-gallon fuel tank.
The third generation version of the F-250 is available in a wide range of trim levels and in both 4x2 and 4x4 drive configurations. Both single and double cab models are available that feature a locking differential and vacuum-boost brakes. Ford stated at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show that their line of Super Duty pickups have the thickest gauge steel frame of any heavy duty truck.
A lighter duty version of the F-250 pickup that utilized the F-150 body was first introduced in 1998 as part of Ford's new line of Super Duty trucks. The second generation model of the F-250 served as the basis for the Ford Excursion sport-utility vehicle. The 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty won the Topline Pulling Power award from Truckin magazine and was named best workhorse truck by Popular Mechanics.
