A top notch truck

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr SuperCab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I have now had two full months with my new F250 King Ranch crew cab 6.4L diesel 4x4.A truly great truck. Excellent power and refinement.Having owned over 10 Ford trucks this one is by far the best overall.Diesel has solid power and is very quiet.Fuel economy is currently 17 mpg on highway, 13 city and 12-14 highway towing a 9000 lb. trailer.I expect some improvement with a few more miles.Truck is well made,finish work is the equivalent of an expensive luxury car. No rattles or squeaks. Stereo, DVD nav are nice options, and the seats! An expensive truck. One can get another brand for less, but this is simply the best heavy duty pickup I have ever driven, and I have used many. Great job Ford!
The diesel has excellent power and quiet refinement. The King Ranch seats are fantastic. The interior is very luxurious and the gauges,etc. are easy to read. The truck appears to be well- made and the tow command is great. Nice features like the tailgate step add to ease of use. My favorite, the diesel!
Mileage is not bad, but 1-2 mpg is always better ,not a big deal though for the power and vehicle type. Would like a true locker rear diff, not LS; expensive, but worth the money. Rear DVD for the children would be nice. Advertised as dealer installed option but not yet available apparently. That's it..
