Ford F250 Info

Ford-tested. Ford-designed. Built Ford Tough.®

Ford engineers bred the workhorses in the Super Duty® to deliver everything you need for all the hard jobs you tackle every workday. Not just power, but fuel efficiency and dependability. And that’s what you get in a Super Duty pickup powered by the standard 6.2L gas V8 or available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel.

6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel

An awesome unsurpassed 800 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class 400 horsepower* Plus best-in-class fuel efficiency to go with all that power.** B20-capability. Clean and quiet operation. That’s the Ford-built 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel. The Power Stroke features a graphite iron engine block that is stronger yet lighter than cast iron. Aluminum cylinder heads with precision dual water jackets reduce weight and improve cooling. Class-exclusive* inboard exhaust and outboard air induction architecture helps reduce turbo lag. The class-exclusive* single-sequential turbocharger uses the compact, efficient design of a dual-sided compressor wheel to help generate maximum power — and deliver it quickly with 30 psi of boost. Another great feature is the high-pressure commonrail induction system which, operating at nearly 30,000 psi, delivers up to five injections per combustion cycle for optimum throttle response and fuel efficiency, as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). What’s more, the Power Stroke is equipped with instant-start glow plugs for quick start-ups, even at extremely low temperatures.

 

  • * Available 6.7L diesel engine.  Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR. ** Based on Ford drive-cycle tests of comparably equipped 2011/2012 Ford and 2011/2012 competitive models. * Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR.

Class-Exclusive Single-Sequential Turbocharger

When you need power, you need it now. That’s why the class-exclusive* single-sequential turbocharger of the available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Diesel is located between the cylinder heads and the top of the block, and the exhaust manifold positioned inboard and adjacent to the turbocharger. Closer proximity means faster air displacement and more power. Consider also the fact that this turbocharger uses single-shaft design, a dual-sided compressor wheel and articulating turbine vanes that vary the flow of air based on the accelerator – and you have a turbocharger that generates on-demand performance with negligible turbo lag.

6.2L V8 Gas Engine

The E85-capable 6.2L gas V8 features a single overhead camshaft design and dual-equal variable cam timing — advanced features that help optimize power throughout the speed range as well as fuel efficiency. Large, heavy-duty pistons, intake and exhaust valves and a large engine bore diameter also help deliver outstanding horsepower and torque for effortless on-the-job performance* — plus the fuel efficiency you need to grow your bottom line.** For power conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquid propane gas (LPG), Ford offers the flexibility of the CNG/LPG Gaseous Engine Prep Package, available for F-250 and F-350 models.†

 

  • * Power ratings: 385 horsepower; 405 lb.-ft. of torque. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR vs. 2012/2013 competitors. ** Based on Ford drive-cycle tests of comparably equipped 2012 Ford and 2011/2012 competitive models. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR. † Vehicle will be equipped with the standard factory gasoline fuel system. This package does not include CNG/LPG fuel tanks and lines, which are sold separately.

Ford TorqShift® 6-Speed SelectShift® Automatic

The Ford TorqShift® 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission has big, strong gears that take on extra torque, meaning you use fewer rpm because the torque converter locks up at lower speeds. You can rev this transmission hard and push it to the extremes with confidence.

SelectShift® Operating Modes

The SelectShift® feature of the 6-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission has two driver-initiated modes. In Progressive Range Select, you can limit the range of gears to lock out overdrive for consistent speed over hills and mountain ranges. In Full Manual mode, you can go all the way up and all the way down the gearbox to put you fully in control.

Best-in-Class Fuel Economy

The available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel and the 6.2L V8 gas engine were engineered and built to deliver best-in-class fuel economy.* The impressive thing is that the fuel economy is achieved with engines that are light in weight but big in towing, hauling, torque, horsepower and all-around toughness. The 6.7L Power Stroke delivers a 20% improvement over the previous diesel, while the 6.2L gas V8’s improvement is 15%.

Cleanest Super Duty® Diesel Ever

The state-of-the-art emissions system of the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel combines industry-proven technology and Ford-designed innovations to exceed the latest federal emissions standards, while helping deliver best-in-class fuel economy.* Nitrogen oxide (NOx) levels are reduced by more than 80% compared with the previous regulations.

The toughest member on the crew

The foundation of the Ford Super Duty® is a proven, durable frame that can withstand the everyday rigors of heavy hauling and towing. What’s more, the available Ford-built 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel has endured more abuse from its long, torturous testing than you can possibly subject it to. If you demand a truck that’ll be there for you for the long haul, look no further than the Ford Super Duty.

250,000-Mile Diesel Test Interval

Ford engineers put the available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel through exhaustive durability testing, so that you can run it easily a quarter-million miles under some mighty tough conditions. That’s the kind of durability and dependability that’s built into this diesel.

Diesel Engine Architecture

The available Ford-built 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel is designed from the ground up to deliver power, efficiency and quiet operation. The graphite iron engine block is stronger yet lighter than cast iron. Aluminum cylinder heads with precision dual water jackets reduce weight and improve cooling. The class-exclusive* single-sequential turbocharger uses the compact, efficient design of a dual-sided compressor wheel to help generate maximum power — and deliver it quickly with 30 psi of boost. Another great feature is the high-pressure common-rail induction system which, operating at nearly 30,000 psi, delivers up to five injections per combustion cycle for optimum throttle response and fuel efficiency, as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). What’s more, the Power Stroke is equipped with instant-start glow plugs for quick start-ups, even at extremely low temperatures.

The Frame. The Foundation of Strength.

The Super Duty® frame is the foundation of its Built Ford Tough® capability, designed to help minimize flexing and twisting while maximizing strength and torsional stiffness. It’s constructed of fully boxed front rails, 6.7-mm-thick C-channel rails and crossmembers, plus additional gussets providing durability in high-stress areas. Section modulus is 6.7 cu. in.* Yield strength is 36,000 psi. Combine these with other tough measures and you’ll know why Super Duty delivers best-in-class** payload and towing capacities.

Tested Tough

The Ford Super Duty® is tested on the proving grounds and in the real world under harsher conditions than you would normally experience. And we test it again. Only then do we feel confident that it would deliver the dependability you rely on every day. The available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel, for example, has been put through over 10 million miles of cumulative testing.

Standard Front and Side Curtain Airbags

In addition to front airbags, Super Duty® provides front side-impact airbags and the Safety Canopy® System with its state-of-the-art roll-fold technology. Six airbags are standard on all Super Duty models.*

 

Engine-Only Traction Control on DRW Models

First class-exclusive* traction control on Super Duty® dual-rear-wheel models uses the engine to limit wheelspin by reducing engine throttle output. It’s a smarter way to help keep you in control, even when the elements are out of control.**

Tough Bed® Bedliner

The available ToughBed® is a unique factory-installed spray-in bedliner using a precision high-pressure automated sprayer, not a hand sprayer, to help ensure a smooth, even and durable coat. ToughBed provides a water-tight seal and helps resist rust. The option includes a tailgate guard, black box bed tie-down hooks and black bed attachment bolts.

AdvanceTrac® with RSC®

Super Duty® single-rear-wheel pickups come equipped with standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®). This system uses a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and AdvanceTrac will automatically engage to help keep you under control.

Easygoing on every tough job

A truck that really works for you does more than just perform up to every task with power and dependability. Trailer sway control is a great example of how Ford smart technology takes Super Duty® towing capability to another level of convenience and safety. And at the purely mechanical end, there’s the available class-exclusive* tailgate step that shows how Ford designers thought outside the box to make your job as easy as possible.

Trailer Sway Control

Standard on the Super Duty® pickup and single-rear-wheel chassis cab models, Trailer sway control helps keep whatever you’re towing doing what you want it to do, not what the forces of gravity and inertia want it to do. This control is accomplished through selective wheel braking and reduced engine power to help keep your trailer behind you through high winds, turns and rain-soaked roads.*

Best-in-Class Maximum Towing and Payload

The Ford Super Duty® comes through in a big way in the everyday task of towing big loads, with best-in-class conventional (18,500 lbs.) and 5th-wheel (24,700 lbs.) towing capacities.* Maximum payload (7,260 lbs.) is best-in-class too. This can have a huge impact on your bottom line

5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Prep Package

With the 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Prep Package, you can use a 5th-wheel hitch or a gooseneck ball to tow the really big loads. This package, available on 6-3/4-ft. and 8-ft. pickup boxes, offers you the strength of a factory-installed 5th wheel and gooseneck substructure attached to the frame and maintains a flat cargo load floor. This patented system is covered by a Ford limited warranty* and is compatible with 5th-Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Kits offered through the factory and Ford Custom Accessories.

Tow/Haul Mode with Engine Exhaust Braking Function

The available Power Stroke® 6.7L V8 Turbo Diesel with 6-speed TorqShift® transmission utilizes seamless engine exhaust braking and selective gearing to improve control on steep downhill grades and minimize brake wear. While you’re in tow/haul mode and tapping the brake pedal, the engine back pressure is automatically adjusted and the transmission holds a specific gear (depending on grade) to help slow the vehicle. This is a big-rig feature you’ll really appreciate when you need extra control while coming down that 8% grade.

Hill Start Assist/Hill Descent Control™

When you’re crawling up a steep hill, the standard hill start assist feature automatically holds the brake on an incline to help prevent backward roll when switching your foot from the brake to the gas. This is especially helpful when towing big loads. Conversely, when going downhill you need the Hill Descent Control,™ included on single-rear-wheel pickups with the available FX4 Off-Road Package. To activate it, push the Hill Descent Control button, press the brake once to set the desired speed and hold the steering wheel. Then the system applies brake pressure as needed to descend grades at a controlled speed.

Electronic Locking Rear Differential

Work is hardly ever in a perfect location. What starts as a level patch of dirt usually turns into a rutted mud pit. But that’s where the available electronic locking rear differential goes to work. It locks the rear axle completely to maximize traction at both wheels simultaneously, providing excellent off-road traction in either 4×2 or 4×4 mode. What’s more, you activate the system at the touch of a switch without having to get out of the cab.

Integrated Trailer Brake Controller

Super Duty®has the first factory-installed, fully integrated trailer brake controller (TBC) available in a full-size pickup, so there are no installation hassles or aftermarket worries. Integrated with the ABS and trailer sway control, TBC synchronizes vehicle and trailer brakes for seamless braking, even with the heaviest loads. The Ford TBC offers the advantage of verified compatibility with trailers (one to four axles) utilizing electrically actuated drum brakes and certain electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) actuated drum or disc brake systems.

Class-Exclusive Tailgate Step

You already have the best-in-class maximum payload capacity (7,260 lbs.).* The class-exclusive* available integrated tailgate step makes it easier to access all of that payload. This step stows inside the tailgate, can be easily accessed when needed and includes a flipup grab bar. Also, it has a 350-lb. load capacity, so even the big guys don’t have to sweat it.

Super Duty® works hard. You don’t have to.

Ford Super Duty® is engineered to work hard, but that doesn’t mean you have to. The available driver-configurable LCD productivity screen, for example, puts you in touch with fuel economy data, towing and off-road information, plus much more.
