2022 Ford F-250 Review
The Ford F-150 is a long-heralded truck thanks to its durability and capability. Yet for some folks around Fayette, Jasper, and Cullman, AL, they need more oomph than what the F-150 offers.

The purpose of securing your own Ford F-250 is to more easily complete large tasks. Each job is different, which is why Ford made the performance of this truck so customizable.
Off the bat, you have three fuel tank sizes to pick between: 29 gallons, 34 gallons, or 48 gallons. The drivetrain can be a standard 4×2 arrangement or an available 4×4 arrangement. Then comes the famed engine lineup of the rugged F-250:
- 6.2L flex-fuel gas V8 making 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque
- 7.3L gas V8 making 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
- 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel making 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque
There are multiple transmission options as well. A TorqShift® 6-speed or 10-speed automatic can be fitted to the truck. Both come with selectable drive modes, too.
