Comparison Review

The Ford F-250 offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Ford F-450. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford F-250 and the Ford F-450.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford F-250 is a better financial choice over the Ford F-450, when considering MSRP. The destination charge is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford F-250 will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford F-450.

Since the Ford F-250 is much slimmer than the Ford F-450, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford F-250, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford F-450.

The Ford F-250 offers much less torque than the Ford F-450, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Ford F-250 has a larger turning radius than the Ford F-450, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Ford F-450 is clearly the choice over the Ford F-250 for pulling heavy loads. The Ford F-250 has a little more horsepower than the Ford F-450.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford F-250 as you will the Ford F-450. The Ford F-450 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Ford F-250.

The Ford F-250 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-450.
