Great Truck, But...
By JoeVacs on
2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
6.4L diesel crew cab, Lariat. I love everything about this truck, except the poor fuel economy. Starts from the line and will blow the doors off most everything except the cars that are supposed to be fast. Very fun to drive, and loads of power to pull whatever I want to pull. I have 10,000 miles on it now and average 11.8mpg. I was hoping for atleast 16-18. I know people with the old 7.3liter that get over 20mpg. That's what I was hoping for. Maybe after it get broke in good it will do better. I contrast, A Nissan Titan only gets 12mpg, and it won't pull even half what this one will. Also, I love Ford's keypad on the door. You never have to worry about locking yourself out.
Power. Longterm resale value. Payload capacity. ability to install 35" tires without a lift kit
Put better tires on from the factory. Better fuel economy
