2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I have a 08 250 6.4 great power. I move up from a f150, not because of power. Braking was not the best when towing 7500 lbs. Now with bigger brakes & controler it's on.


Best Features

Brakes & brake controler. let's not leave out POWER.


Worst Features

N/A

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I have had a lot of trucks and by far this is the best one. This is my first diesel so I'm still in uncharted waters but so far I'm very impressed and I think you would be too. Tons of power and just an overall great styling truck. Fuel mileage is what you would expect with a big diesel but in comparison with my old 04 Dodge Ram 1500 with the Hemi and AWD it's almost the same. Around 13-16 on highway. And 10 in city. Ford did a great job by redoing the mirrors for easy seeing. Truck rides nice on the highway and the engine never lets you down.


Best Features

The raw power. Huge interior. Safe feeling size. The exhaust cleaning system. I love the tow command and the fact that aux switches are already installed and wired up


Worst Features

None really.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty FX4 4dr SuperCab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

No problems so far. Diesel is not for the economy minded as this is a heavy vehicle not to mention all the new emission controls the engine has to deal with. Feels solid as a tank. Very happy with purchase.


Best Features

Love the bold interior and exterior style.


Worst Features

Seats are not as comfortable as GM, personally I would not set out for a long road trip. The tires may be suspect for the rougher than normal ride.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The truck rides rough. You feel every bump in the road and on the tracks. The truck will lag at acceleration. If you try to pass a slow moving vehicle or enter the highway, the truck's RPMs will lug and you have to pull over so you don't cause an accident. The truck's steering wheel doesn't move up or down to make the cluster visible. The seat is a simple bench seat, so if you have to move the seat forward or backwards you the passenger isn't comfortable. Gas mileage isn't up to par. I maybe getting 12-13MPG at best. If you need a new truck buy a Chevy.


Best Features

Does have the trailer brake system control which will control the brakes to prevent jackknifing.


Worst Features

Better fuel mileage, higher engine torque. Seat could be split bench type like Chevrolet. The truck can use improvement in design like smoother ride.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Great truck. The 6.4 diesel is very strong. Not as fast as Chevy but this is a real truck weighing in at more than 900lbs heavier than the Chevy 3/4ton. I drove them all and this truck feels much more solid than the Dodge or Chevy. Fuel mileage is 16-17 on hwy and 12-14 in city. Truck is comfortable. I normally drive 1/2 ton trucks so handling and driving is a little worse than what I'm used to but this goes for all the diesel trucks. I love the room this truck offers.


Best Features

Best sounding diesel, room, rear camera, looks inside and out, very solid feeling. I think I could move my house if needed. Great engine and tranny! Awesome engine sound.


Worst Features

Improve fuel mileage, better steering, telescoping steering wheel (in and out).
