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.

It drives like a truck. Has a little bit of a stiff ride, but, its a truck. The performance is GREAT. I love the truck. Towing capacity has been awesome. Would highly recommend it.




Bought to work & play

Searched and compared. Have a 2 horse straight pull trailer with dressing room to tow. Trailer GVW at 7,000 lbs. Ordered F-250 with 3:73 gears, tows very well and gets better than average milage for it's size. Solid and hefty. Handles the trailer nicely and was ordered to do so. Rides well either empty or working with a load.




Enjoy my 250

This truck had a recall on it right after I bought it. The CPU had to be reprogrammed because the truck ran like @*$%(crap)! Give ford awhile to fix all the kinks before you buy
