Review of the 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty

  • When it comes to diesel power, the Ford Powerstroke is hard to beat, but the heavy-duty trucks from Dodge and GM offer more modern interiors and better handling.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rugged construction, multiple configurations, competent off-road capabilities, high towing and payload capacities, diesel leads the class in power and fuel economy.

  • Cons

    Noisy drivetrains, gas engines' poor mileage, vague steering, spotty build quality.

  • What's New for 2004

    A Harley-Davidson package can now be had on the F-250. Other changes worth noting are a new keypad mounted above the driver door handle when equipped with the Advanced Security Group and the availability of foglights on 4x2 XLT models. The full bench front seat is now offered with a recline feature. Trucks sold in California now have a standard 3.73 rear axle, and trucks sold in New York or Vermont require California emissions. Diesel emissions have been lowered as well.

A lot of power in small package.Pull a 34 footer and does a fine job. No real problems other then 2 recalls. Love the auto transmission with brake. It`s like a car to drive very responsive and braking is great.

Here's to the triton v10

I felt the need to rate this since I found no v10 reports in here. I have only owned this a couple of weeks but enjoy it very much. The ride is stiff but what do you expect from a real truck. My previous truck was a Toyota Tundra which I liked very much but I needed a truck to haul a 5th wheel and Ford is it. No problems so far though it did come with 29 thousand miles on it. So I am hoping all the bugs are worked out. I do enjoy the the power and acceleration the 6.8 has and noticed no difference between the '04 and '06 I test drove. But it seems to take off and stop funny like on stilts or a sloppy tranny but will take that up with dealer.




Looks and rides like winner

I cannot imagine anyone wanting anything else after driving mine. It handles like a dream, has all the creature comforts of most cars and can tow almost anything. In fact, when I have my 6,000 lb boat behind it, I hardly realize I am towing anything. There is simply no comparison to the F250 Superduty. Ford is king when it comes to builing a truck.
