The Ford F-150 is a much-heralded truck thanks to its durability and capability. However, some folks around Jasper, Fayette, and Cullman need more oomph than what the F-150 offers.
When that’s the case, the logical step is to move to the Ford F-250. Larger, stronger, and more capable than the F-150, the F-250 often finds itself on construction sites. How impressive is this truck? Our 2023 Ford F-250 review begins to answer that question.
A rundown of F-250 features and specifications is only the start. At Bill Penney Ford, you can also test drive this truck for some hands-on experience!
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 choose from: 29 gallons, 34 gallons, or 48 gallons. The drivetrain can be a standard 4x2 arrangement or an available 4x4 arrangement. Then comes the famed engine lineup of the rugged F-250:
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.
Customization remains a theme as we move to the exterior of the F-250. There are three cab sizes, with the two biggest featuring multiple wheelbase options.
The standard, smallest size is the Regular Cab with a 141.4-inch wheelbase. A step up from that is the SuperCab, which is offered with a 147.8-inch or 164.1-inch wheelbase. Lastly, you have the option of a 159.7- or 175.9-inch wheelbase attached to the Crew Cab model.
As you’ve probably guessed, towing and payload numbers for the 2023 F-250 differ wildly, depending on the engine, the parts you’ve attached to your truck, and the wheelbase. So, we’ll look at the maximum capacities for this rugged truck.
When properly equipped with the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine, your Ford F-250 boasts a max towing capacity of 23,000 pounds.
If you’re trying to store cargo in the bed for a long haul, the most the F-250 can hold is 4,302 pounds when properly configured. This maximum payload is reached when choosing the 8-foot bed, as opposed to the shorter 6.75-foot bed.
The list of customizable features and performances you can achieve with the Ford F-250 gives the truck a wide appeal around Jasper, Fayette, and Cullman.
