2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


This '06 Super Duty Diesel replaced my '95 F250 460 V8, and the improvement in comfort, fuel mileage and build quality is amazing. We tow a 4,500lb enclosed trailer all the time in our home business, and I needed something that would do it as well as our other truck had for so many years. I have driven Chevy Duramax trucks, and love the engine/trans combo they have... but their smaller cab space, poor layout and styling were such that I ended up going with the Ford. We added a mild chip to it, as the stock motor is pretty poky compared to other newer diesels. It also improved our fuel mileage from 11/15 to 13/17. Beware of chipping too hard, as the 6.0L isn't built as heavy as the 7.3L.

Best Features

Interior space and design is great. Well-thought-out ANALOG controls and gauges... something that's hard to find now! I chose Ford for the cab and styling, and was not disappointed. I also love its beefy 4-wheel disc brakes and Tow Command System... the best trailer brake controller I have ever used

Worst Features

Improve the 6.0L / Torqshift Automatic's power, build quality and refinement, as they are is easily outclassed by almost any Duramax / Allison I've driven ('02, '04, '07). The Shift-On-The-Fly 4x4 is a little spotty on its engagement, as the front hubs sometimes have to be manually locke
