Good, but disappointed

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


The XLT Sport package is nice,
but lacks the refinement that I was
used in the F-150 Lariat. Also, the new
5.4L gas engine should not be used in
this truck regardless of what the specs
say. Based on the truck's weight and
various observations, the V10 gas or
Power Stroke diesel is the way to go.
Horsepower is O.K., but something this
heavy needs more torque. Overall, this
is still a very nice truck. It rides
pretty well and is capable of limited
heavy duty requirements. Too bad it was
not ordered with the V10!

Best Features

Roomy rear seat, power sunroof, reverse sensors, improved turning radius, 5- speed HD tranny, improved cosmetics, trailer tow mirrors, Class V hitch, keypad entry, good brakes.

Worst Features

Seats are too stiff, ride can be bouncy/unstable without load, 5.4L works too hard to move this heavy truck, center console is weak, no rear cup holders if center seat is used, limited rear seat storage, poor fuel economy.
