Which F-250 Super Duty does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4 / 5
More capable than the ultra-popular full-size F-150 but not as extreme (or expensive) as the F-350 or the F-450, the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty is a heavy-duty truck that provides an appealing combination of capability and everyday usability. It has a massive tow rating, lots of available high-tech gear and a cabin that can keep any family comfortable.
The F-250's amount of available driver assist features is impressive. The adaptive cruise control, for example, is capable of operating in normal scenarios or while the truck is pulling a full 25,000-pound load. For added peace of mind, there are also features available such as lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring that can be programmed with the length of your trailer, and a rearview camera that can be mounted to the back of your trailer and connected to the infotainment screen. Getting your toy-hauler into a parking spot just got much easier.
As we've come to expect from Ford trucks lately, the F-250 is both highly capable and modern. There's abundant space in the cabin, supportive seats, and plenty of trim-level upgrades that are creature-comfort oriented. Hook up your trailer, load up all your heaviest gear, and you'll still have a vehicle that will pamper you on the longest of road trips. The 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty is at the head of a class of modern heavy-duty trucks with maximum comfort and capability.
Trim levels & features
The 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty is a full-size, heavy-duty pickup available in six trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. It can be configured as a regular cab, an extended cab (aka SuperCab) or a crew cab with either a 6.8- or an 8.2-foot bed length. A 6.2-liter gasoline V8 produces 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, and an available turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel V8 puts out an impressive 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is offered as an option.
Base XL models are essentially heavy-duty work trucks, but they still come standard with features such as 17-inch steel wheels, manual front locking hubs (four-wheel-drive models), intermittent wipers, a rearview camera, manually adjustable telescoping towing mirrors, a removable locking tailgate with tailgate lift assist, and a 2.5-inch trailer hitch receiver with a 2-inch insert. Also included are air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, manual windows and door locks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a driver information display, and a four-speaker audio system. Extended- and crew-cab models get a six-speaker system.
At the XLT trim level you get 18-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable heated mirrors, four locking cleats in the bed, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, rear underseat lockable storage, power windows and locks, and rear privacy glass (extended- and crew-cab models only). The XLT also includes cruise control, an alarm system, the Sync voice-controlled infotainment system, a 4.2-inch display, a USB port, and a CD player and satellite radio.
The midrange Lariat trim level gets you an electronic shift-on-the-fly four-wheel-drive system (four-wheel-drive models only), power-folding and telescoping outside mirrors (plus driver-side auto-dimming and integrated spotlights), tubular side steps, a power-sliding rear window, and rear parking sensors. This trim also brings dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, power-adjustable pedals, a rear center armrest, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an 8-inch center touchscreen display, an upgraded Sync 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, two 110-volt household-style power outlets, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a premium B&O Play 10-speaker audio system with two USB charging ports.
The Western-themed King Ranch trim level, which is only offered on crew-cab models, adds unique trim and styling details, automatic high beams, automatic wipers, LED box lighting, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, upgraded leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, a power tilt-and-telescoping and heated steering wheel, and a navigation system with satellite radio.
Choosing the Platinum model, again offered only on crew-cab models, gets you 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive steering, LED headlights, automatic wipers, power running boards, a remote tailgate release, a built-in tailgate step, multicontour front seats, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
Top-of-the-line Limited models include everything from the Platinum model and add a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a panoramic sunroof, and a Limited-exclusive two-tone leather interior.
Many of the features standard on upper trim levels are offered as options on the rest of the lineup. Other noteworthy options include a heavy-duty trailer tow package (offered only with the turbodiesel engine), a massive 48-gallon fuel tank, different axle ratios with an electronically locking rear differential, an FX4 off-road package, and a fifth-wheel/gooseneck hitch prep package. That options list goes on with adaptive cruise control, collision warning with brake support, skid plates (four-wheel-drive models only), an Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with a total of seven cameras, a separate rearview camera that can be mounted on a customer's trailer, trailer tire-pressure monitoring and a spray-in bedliner.

Ford F-250 Super Duty vs. the competition
2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty
Ford F-250 Super Duty vs. Ford F-350 Super Duty
While the F-250 and the F-350 aren't rivals in the traditional sense, you will want to compare them. They're available with the exact same powertrains, but their chassis are built to handle different loads. Essentially, the F-350 offers identical equipment but in a bigger, more capable package. If you're close to the F-250's limits, you will want to upgrade to the F-350.
Ford F-250 Super Duty vs. Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
The Ford F-250 has been updated more recently than the Silverado 2500HD, but both trucks are still thoroughly modern. The Silverado 2500HD's maximum tow rating is a bit lower, but it's still very respectable. The Ford wins out when it comes to payload capacity, so it may have a slight edge in this head-to-head.
Ford F-250 Super Duty vs. Ram 2500
Much like the Silverado 2500HD, the Ram 2500 is awaiting an update following the complete redesign of its smaller stablemate. That means the F-250 is a bit more modern than both trucks, giving it a slight edge for buyers looking for the most modern tech. The Ram 2500, however, is one of the most comfortable trucks on the road and has a suite of desirable trim levels to choose from.
2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty Diesel for Sale
To many folks, a pickup truck is a pickup truck is a pickup truck. It has a cab, a bed and a trailer hitch. How do you make a meaningful improvement on that formula? Ford has an answer in the form of the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty, a pickup truck that raises the bar for the whole segment. It is available with a host of comfort and convenience features and a choice of two seriously capable engines, and it's pleasant to live with on a day-to-day basis.
The F-250's available engines are both impressive in their own right: A 6.2-liter gasoline V8 delivers 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, and a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 is tuned for 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. Depending on configuration, the F-250 can haul up to 4,200 pounds of payload and tow as much as 18,600 pounds. Because of the F-250's size, the EPA does not provide fuel economy estimates.
Available technology on the 2019 F-250 includes driver aids such as adaptive cruise control. The F-250's system not only matches the speed of slower traffic ahead, but it also downshifts the transmission and uses the built-in diesel exhaust brake to control speed when it's towing a trailer. Likewise, the blind-spot monitoring system can compensate for the added length of a trailer. Other technology is specifically aimed at trailer towing, such as a backup assistance system that tells the driver which way to turn the wheel to keep the trailer straight. Also, trailer-mounted tire pressure sensors and a backup camera assist by feeding the displays in the F-250's cab.
Like most domestic pickups, the F-250 is offered in a vast array of models, along with three cab choices (regular, extended and crew) and two bed lengths. The XL is the basic work truck, complete with vinyl floors instead of carpets. XLT models possess more of the amenities we expect for a personal truck. The Lariat adds equipment usually found in luxury cars, while the King Ranch has even more creature comforts set to a Western theme. The Platinum model combines usability with luxury, and at the top of the line is the all-singing, all-dancing F-250 Limited model. Note that the F-250's hauling and towing capacities depend on how the truck is configured, so it's important to pick the right configuration for the jobs you need it to do. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
