Review of the 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty

  • When it comes to heavy-duty pick 'em ups, you can choose between a Chevy, a Dodge, a Ford or a GMC. Match your needs to the truck with the most capability to meet them, and you're all set. Of course, which model you select is also guided by brand loyalty. If you're a Ford kind of guy or gal with big loads to haul or tow, the F-250 Super Duty pickup will handle up to 8,800-pounds GVWR or a 14,500-pound fifth-wheel trailer.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged construction, multiple configurations, competent off-road capabilities, 14,500-pound fifth-wheel trailer capacity.

  • Cons

    Noisy drivetrains, poor gas mileage, large size, stiff ride when not loaded.

  • What's New for 2002

    A six-speed manual transmission is now standard with the 5.4- and 6.8-liter V8 gas engines, and the 6.8-liter has been enhanced to provide better performance. If you order an automatic transmission, a gauge that measures transmission oil temperature replaces the battery gauge, and you can opt to add adjustable pedals to your Super Duty XLT or Lariat truck. Trucks with the Power Stroke diesel get an air filter service indicator. All F-250s get roof ride handles standard for 2002, and the available telescoping trailer mirrors can now be folded forward. SuperCabs have new rear door panel map pockets with molded-in cupholders. XL gets upgraded visors, while XLT and Lariat get new seats with increased width, bolstering and lumbar support; jewellike headlamp lenses and an available Advanced Security Group that includes remote keyless entry, automatic door locks and automatic headlamps. Optional on the XLT Crew Cab and standard on the Lariat Crew Cab is a power front passenger seat. The Lariat also gets a larger standard overhead console with improved storage.

These trucks are awesome. I tow alot of weight and the truck makes it feel like it isn't even back there. The Powerstroke Diesel is the only way to go!

My Ford F250 has been rode hard and put away wet. I have already put 60,000 mile on in the first two years and I've never had a days problem with it. I do a lot of off roading, beach driving, towning and highway driving. I wish all of Fords vechicles were this well built.

A new f250 with lots of repairs is unacceptable. Only 22000 miles and have had new rotors,brakes, front springs and soon tires dues too improper front end problems. Must have been a Friday or Monday built truck. Now have a vibration, rattle under the truck to take in next week. I hope Ford Motor Co. reads this because they have not cared so far. I've had the truck in the shop for close too 2 weeks total time. I use this truck for work and buy new every 2 years too prevent down time, which costs me MONEY. Not sure where I'll buy next, but I know this truck is gone at 36000 mi. THis is not the dealers fault. Poorly made truck.




My "car"

I am 5'2 120lbs, not exactly what you expect to see jumping out of this big truck. I thought my husband was crazy, but I test drove it and fell in love. I will never own another kind of vehicle. I can fit 2 car seats, 3adults, and a 12 year old. I had a bachlorette party of 10 women (not recommended and definitely not legal). It's a car and a truck combined. Great stereo, AC, and lots of cup holders (the important stuff). Big yet easy to drive. I look great driving it.
