Review of the 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty

  • Class-leading payload and towing capacity and a wide variety of configurations and special-edition models help make the aging Super Duty a viable option for those who need a hard-core pickup civilized enough for everyday use.

  • 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 2005

    Among the changes for 2005 are a new front suspension for improved handling, a standard TorqueShift five-speed automatic transmission on all models and increased towing and hauling capacities across the board. The Harley-Davidson edition package sees minor cosmetic upgrades.

Best built truck i own

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

My new Ford F-250 4X4 XLT has met all the requirements I wanted except mileage. My 1977 F-250 4X4 XL only gave 11 mpg so this one giving 14 mpg is much better, but I had hoped for better than 17 mpg. This is still one well built truck for the money.




2005 super duty 4x4

Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Although not broken in yet, out of 8 new Ford trucks, this is the worst one for gas mileage. Only 9 mpg. Truck has manual hubs and would not stay in 4WD. A new shift assembly had to be installed with less than 1,000 miles on it. Very hard to steer in 4WD when trying to make a sharp turn in reverse. Sometimes the wheels won't move at all. The truck has 17" wheels and wide tires. The wide tires make the truck more difficult to handle when driving on snow covered roads. Power windows do not work in cold weather.
