Best truck on the market

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Loved this truck, performance was great. Used to call it my big sports car. Never had any mechanical issues at all, how ever it chewed thru tires once a year in the front end. Power when needed and a soft relaxing ride. I would buy another in a heart beat. The V-10 drank the gas like it was going out of style in the city but on the highway it was fair.




A monster of a truck

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

purchased my f-250 with the 5.4 liter. i was woried at first that there wouldnt be enough power for a vehicle of this size but it actuly is just fine. I tow from time to time but never any more than 7000 pounds so i went withe the 5.4 liter. i get about 10 mpg in the city and 15-16 one the highway 70-80 mph. I love this truck has all the room you could ever want. the wife wanted an suv and i wanted a truck so we compromised and got the crew cab. also got the long bed mostly for the extra fuel capacity (38 gallons). I do recomend geting the step bars and the reverse vehicle sensor. due to the height and lenght of the vehicle. trust me you want them!!

Full 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty Review

What's New for 2003

The 2003 model year sees a new FX4 Off-Road Package with skid plates, Rancho front and rear shocks, a steering damper and decals. The regular off-road package is no longer available, but a skid plate package can still be had on all 4WD trucks. All XLs can be had with a vinyl 40/20/40 reclining split bench that has a fold down armrest with a console and cupholders. Ford has also upgraded seat material quality, and installed a tailgate lock on this trim level. If you order a SuperCab or Crew Cab in XLT trim with the Sport Package, you can also order a reverse sensing system and a power driver seat. Late-availability additions include an optional power moonroof for Crew Cabs and optional heated telescoping trailer tow mirrors with integrated turn signals. A King Ranch version of the Crew Cab will also appear later in the year. Finally, the torque rating for the 7.3-liter turbodiesel V8 has been boosted to 525 pound feet. By mid-year, expect an even more-powerful 6.0-liter diesel to appear.
