Ford F-250 Overview
The F-250 is best suited for towing or hauling heavy loads, but handling is very clumsy even for a heavy-duty pickup truck. The ride is stiffer and snappier than in the F-150's, but slightly better than in some heavy-duty competitors. The 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel got 40 more horsepower for 2015. A V8 gas engine is available. The high floor makes access difficult. Convenience items include built-in controls for proportional braking when towing a trailer. Reliability has been average, but the very low emergency-handling scores prevent us from recommending the F-250.
