Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford F-150 offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Ford F-250. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford F-150 and the Ford F-250.

When looking only at MSRP, the Ford F-150 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford F-250. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford F-150 and the Ford F-250 have similar Destination Charges.

With its lower torque engine, the Ford F-150 doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-250.

Handling
The Ford F-150 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford F-250, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.
