It's a pullin machine
By Steve Livingston on
2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 2WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
I have had this truck for nearly 4
years, and have not had any reliability
issues with it. It has pulled our
10,500 pound travel trailer from
Georgia to Montana and Wyoming, and to
Maine. It has always performed
superbly. I get decent fuel mileage
when not pulling - usually about 16-17
in town, but I do avoid all the lights.
On the highway I have gotten anywhere
from 18 to an incredible 27 mpg (that
only happened once - usually the upper
limit is 22mpg). Pulling the trailer it
gets around 12mpg - except on 8%
grades, where it drops about 2mpg. I
wouldn't buy another one because I
don't plan on ever getting rid of this
Room inside the cab front and back.
Pulling power. Style.
The '05s have all the improvements I
would have suggested. Am almost
tempted to get one, but there is
absolutely nothing wrong with this one!
