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.

Run away!

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XL 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Bought the truck new...shortly thereafter, when I would hit a bump at speed, the truck would lose steering, lose brakes, shake uncontrollably. make a sound like the end of the world. I took it in to be fixed. They claimed it was repaired 4 or 5 times!! Seriously dangerous stuff. I was bound to kill myself or someone else or whomever was driving it: my wife, mother, father-in-law. I spoke with Ford and got their TSBs...happens in a A LOT of the F250s(gas)! I asked to swap the truck out. No dice; they told me to Lemon Law it (Florida). I did...and won. Ford appealed the decision. This was about a year ago. We go trial (again) in January. When I win that case, Ford will appeal again




Pleasure to drive

Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XL 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

I upgraded to from a '04 2wd F-250 to my '05 4wd. What a difference in ride and turning radius night and day. The 6.0 International Powerstroke is a pleasure to drive. I can get 21 highway and 16 city. I seldom go anywhere that someone doesn't comment on what a good looking truck it is. I do not really haul anything or use it as a work truck, inside job, except for normal homeowner or occasional fire wood work but I have always wanted a 4wd diesel 4 door truck and this one will satisfy that desire for a long time.
