The F-250 is a heavy-duty truck with a 3/4-ton capacity as opposed to the 1/2 ton of the F-150.
The Super Duty line was freshened for 2005 with new exterior and revised engines.
The ride is stiff and bouncy, especially compared to the F-150.
Ford's 6.0-liter turbodiesel packs some real punch and is fairly quiet and free of vibration.
Stepping into the cabin is more difficult because of the high floor.
