The F-250 Super Duty is based on Ford's commercial truck platform. It's a work truck with moderate payload capacity, great towing capability and little else to recommend it, thanks to a lousy ride and mediocre brakes. Uncomfortable seats detract further from the driving experience. Stability control, full-time four-wheel drive, and curtain airbags are all lacking.
