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.

2004 ford f-250 6.0 liter

Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

I bought this vehicle due to the emissions testing. But I never dreamed the truck would have this much torque and comfortable riding being an 8800 lb truck. I highly recommend the F250 Super Duty.

Good truck overall. The brakes are exellent, interior is spacious and well thought of. My only main complaint would be the fuel effiency. Driving carefully in the city I dont get much more than 10 mpg. I would by this truck again if I had to.




Diesel trouble

Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

I've got 4500 miles on my new F250 with the 6.0 diesel. Driving to work the other day, the engine quit. Just quit. No warning. Truck's been in the shop for over a week, and even the Ford engineers don't know what's wrong. My last F250 was gas. It ran like a Swiss watch (over 100,000 miles). Got 14 MPG on the gas V8, getting 15-16 with the diesel. $4,000 buys a lot of gas. Rear end problems too. Looks like the dealer may have to take the truck back (lemon laws). I don;t recommend the new 6.0 diesel. I should have stuck with gas...sorry now I didn't.

the gas milage is pretty bad, dont buy this truck if you need to go a lot of places. Its great for towing and hauling, i would be totally satisfied with this truck if i would have bought the diesel, better milage and more power. my suggestion is buy the diesel

I have never had a pick up that can carry 2450 lbs. and still go 70 on the highway and this one did it all winter long. When I pull my 5000 lb.trailer, it's like it doesn't even exist back there!
