2013 Ford F-250 Overview

Vehicle Overview
The F-Series Super Duty is Ford's line of heavy-duty pickup trucks, which are available in a variety of configurations and three model series: F-250, F-350 and F-450. The truck can carry as many as six people when properly configured, and competitors include 2500 and 3500 models in the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and Ram truck lines.

Two engines are available: a 6.2-liter gas V-8 and a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8. Both engines team with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission.

New for 2013
Ford debuts a Platinum edition of the Super Duty that comes standard with upscale features like a backup camera, navigation system, MyFord Touch, remote start, power-adjustable pedals, power-telescoping mirrors and 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels. The truck also gets a mesh grille surrounded by satin chrome trim as well as chrome tow hooks, door handles, mirror covers and exhaust tip. Inside, there's a heated leather steering wheel, premium leather upholstery, woodgrain-style trim, two USB ports, A/V connection points and an SD card slot.

Exterior
A 2011 restyling brought a "power dome" hood, a bolder grille stamped with a Super Duty logo and an oversized Ford oval badge. Buyers have the choice of an extended cab (Super Cab) with a 6.75- or 8-foot box and a crew cab with four conventional doors and a 6.75- or 8-foot box. Dual-rear-wheel models are available with the 8-foot box. Exterior features include a standard trailer hitch receiver and 17-inch wheels (18- and 20-inch wheels available). There is also plenty of optional exterior equipment including PowerScope towing mirrors, power moonroof, tubular side steps or running boards, and spray-in bedliner.

Interior
The Super Duty borrows seats from the Ford F-150 pickup truck, and it offers a three-place front bench seat or front bucket seats. The bench seat is split 40/20/40, and a lockable under-seat center storage compartment is optional. A wide center console is available on models with front buckets and includes a bin large enough to hold a laptop computer. On the Lariat, heated and cooled front seats with a memory feature for the power driver's seat are optional. Crew cab models have a three-place rear bench seat that flips up to reveal a flat cargo floor. An available 4.2-inch LCD screen in the instrument cluster shows fuel-economy information and monitors off-road and towing details. Air conditioning and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel are standard, while a navigation system with SiriusXM Travel Link, power-adjustable pedals, and Sync are optional.

Under the Hood
The standard 6.2-liter gas V-8 is a single-overhead-camshaft engine that runs on regular gas or E85 ethanol. It produces 385 horsepower and 405 pounds-feet of torque.

The available Power Stroke 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8 produces 400 hp and a massive 800 pounds-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm, making it the logical choice for serious towing and hauling. The Power Stroke V-8 burns regular diesel fuel or a blend of up to 20 percent biodiesel.

Both engines work with a standard six-speed automatic transmission that incorporates Ford's SelectShift technology, which enables driver-initiated shifts. The F-series uses rear- or optional all-wheel drive.

Safety
Safety features on the Super Duty include electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control, side curtain airbags, front-seat side-impact airbags, and all-disc antilock brakes. Also available are rear parking sensors and a backup camera.
