2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Crew Cab Lariat 4dr Crew Cab LB DRW (6.4L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

I traded up from a 2000 F350 with 50,000 miles. The 08 F450 is a much better riding, and driving truck and the King Ranch package can't be beat. It definitely has more power then the 2000, and the suspension is amazing - I have a Lance 1181 camper that's 4000lbs dry weight in the bed and the truck hardly sits down with it on there. But here's the no! with only 5500 miles on the truck and easy hauling it has been in the shop for more than six weeks with transmission problems, over heating issues and now it's starting to chug and act "weird" intermittently. Boy, I hope I haven't just given up reliability for comfort!


Best Features

King Ranch package, the looks, the pickup an power, the load capacity, the ride compared to the old bumpy trucks, cab heater and navigation are sweet too.


Worst Features

Fuel economy - I'm getting about 8mpg towing and 9 not. The governor - I hate that someone tells me how fast I can drive. Reliability - this truck has been in the shop more in the first 6 mos than the entire 5 years with my 2000.

2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Crew Cab Lariat 4dr Crew Cab LB DRW (6.4L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

First impression...900 miles. For a very large pickup, drives and handles great. King Ranch package definitely worth it...very lush! Navigation system quite complex, but user friendly. Expect mileage to be 10-15 mpg, once broken in. Great performance while handling 15,000# trailer...awesome tires and brakes!


Best Features

Leather. Sound system. Stability.


Worst Features

Mileage could be better, even in 8,300# truck. Engine compartment too cramped.

Review

First few days of ownership. Overall fit and finish: excellent. Rides amazingly well even without load. Super-quiet, comfortable interior (King Ranch). Complicated, but very capable nav system. A dream to drive with great acceleration (for an 8700# truck), excellent cornering (incredible turn radius). Prefer over the Duramax GMC.


Best Features

Incredible payload handling. Bold styling. Well-made, quiet, with no rattles. WONDERFUL sound system.


Worst Features

Larger engine compartment to avoid pulling cab for maintenance.
