ReviewAlmost bought a 2004 F 250 in May.
Waited for the 2005 due to the
changes that were to be made. I had
ordered my truck at the end of July. A
week before my truck arrived at the
dealership, I had test drove one to see
how I would like it. The 2005 model is
in a class of it's own. Like Day and
Night from any former F-250 model
before. The new front suspension is
much better than before. The truck
turns much tighter and rides much
smoother than earlier models. I was
amazed at the 6 liter diesel as to how
much power and snap it had compared to
a 7.3 liter diesel I had in my 1999
Ford F-250. If you test a 2004 and a
2005, you will notice the improvements
Best FeaturesI ordered this truck with the new factory brake controller, heated seats, back up sensor, power rear window, power moon roof, adjustable foot pedals and a heavy front spring package to make sure it came with a steering damper. Only wish I would have added the sway bar package.
Worst FeaturesThe only improvements I would like to see is a nicer radio, armrests on both sides of the front seats rather than just in the middle sides and a Ford version of On Star. It would also be helpfull if the tow mirrors would pull in closer to the doors to aid in tight garage enteries.
