F250 2011 Super Duty XLT 2wd 'tow equip'
By VJT on
2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr SuperCab LB (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
Mixed driving around town and highway the truck, unloaded, operated at 14.2 MPG. Used the truck on a 3500 mile trip loaded with a slide-in camper - it did not do so well. Operated at 10.0 to 13.5 MPG depending on terrain and wind conditions. Struggled with highway speeds - most times could not maintain highway speed - disappointed with the lack of torque and power. The drive train needs to be repaired as the universal joints are already sloppy (they clang-ring whenever transmission is put into 'D' or 'R' from 'P'). From all indication the title 'super duty' is a misnomer. Camper weight = 2240 lbs, only a fraction of what FoMoCo advertises the truck can handle. Pretty sad indeed.
I got the truck in white - helps with the heat in Texas.
Fuel consumption is excessive, torque is anemic, needs efans to reduce parasitic losses, metal grill mesh to protect heat exchangers from thrown rocks from going through the cheapo plastic grill (what was FoMoCo thinking?), more aggressive engine management to address low and narrow torque output.
