Read on to find out why Ford touts the F-250 Superduty Crew Cab as “Built Ford Tough”.Riding on the Success of its Uber Popular F-150 series of trucks, Ford wants to replicate the same story with its new Super Duty Series of trucks namely the F-250 series.

Starting at just $38,240, the F-250 Crew Cab Super Duty is offered in 2 iterations namely A 4 wheel drive and a 2 wheel drive configuration and 2 Engines namely a 6.2L Gasoline Motor and a 6.7L Turbo Diesel Motor.

we reccomend

Ford has spec’d the F-250 very well in all the trims but if we were to put our money on one variant, we would lean towards the Platinum Variant, as that offers most of the standout features of the Top Limited Trim and the good features from the lower trims.

Engine

"The F-250 is the most comfortable daily driver of the Super Duty lineup due to its softer (read: less firm) suspension meant for lighter towing and hauling duties."-CarandDriver.com

Engine and Performance

The Engines and the State of Tunes of those Engines in the 2018 line up of the F-250 Superduty Trucks are simply amazing as Ford has Fine Tuned these engines to be one of their finest Truck Engines till date.

There are 2 Engines available on the Super duty F-250 Crew Cab namely a 6.2L Gasoline Powered 2 Valve V-8 motor and a 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Diesel Motor.

The Gasoline Motor generates 385HP@5700RPM and 430lbs-ft Torque@3800RPM (Ford claims the Torque figures are class leading). The Best part of this engine is that it can run on alternate fuels like CNG and Propane Autogas when fitted with the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package. This also qualifies the customer for incentives related to alternate fuel use. The Motor on its whole is extremely refined with very little or no engine noise filtering into the cabin. The Engine is very responsive and delivers great fuel efficiency and range with the 48 Gallon fuel tank.

The 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Turbo Diesel Motor is the Engine Ford loves to brag about. It has been completely developed In-house by Ford and has been tuned to deliver class leading Power and Torque figures of 450HP and 935lbs-ft respectively. The Engine is extremely refined and like its Gas Powered Sibling, it’s very silent as compared to other diesels in its segment and delivers great performance in High Altitude and Extreme Conditions as well.

Transmission duties are performed by a 6 Speed TorqShift Automatic Transmission which again has been developed completely in house by Ford. You also get an option of Controlling Engine Braking and you can keep it in On/Off/Automatic mode.

Acceleration

Both the Engines inside the F-250 are “Peppy” and its performance can shame most of the rivals and even sedans of similar price. The Gas powered 6.2L motor helps the pickup reach the 60mph mark from a standstill at just 6.7 seconds, which in our mind is just Unimaginable for a pickup of this size. The Diesel achieves the same feat in 6.9 secs and this despite being slower than the GM rivals isn’t slow in any way.

Ride and Handling

The Ford doesn’t handle like a typical Truck in the sense that it is mostly Hassle Free to drive when compared to the other Trucks in the segment once you get the hang of driving the F-250. There are a lot of Features available in the Ford that includes Trailer Sway Control, Roll Stability Control with 2 Gyroscopic Sensors that mitigates Skidding and Fish Tailing and Adaptive Steering that gives the Ford a planted and supple handling.

The Ford is built on Body on Frame Chassis but despite this and the extensive usage of Aluminium in the Body Shell of the Truck, the Ride is great and one of the best in the class that makes taking the “Road less taken” a comfortable one. There is the Body Roll associated with Body on Frame chassis Vehicles but Ford Engineers have ensured, it’s the minimum with this vehicle without compromising on the handling dynamics.

Braking

The Braking in the Ford F-250 Superduty Crew Cab is handled by Disc Brakes on all 4 wheels and Ford has coupled the F-250 with Braking Assistance Features like AdvanceTrac Roll Stability Control and Adaptive Cruise Control that aids in Braking Performance of the Truck at various speeds. The Byte from the Brakes themselves is confidence inspiring and they do a good job of bringing this “beefy” truck to a halt from speeds.

 Maximum Towing Capacity

The Maximum Towing Capacity of the Gasoline Motor in the Ford F-250 SuperDuty Crew Cab is a bit less than its Diesel Powered Sibling but not by a big margin. Also, when it comes to competition, the Ford does well in terms of Towing Capacity and has respectable figures in the segment.

Fuel Economy

It’s difficult for us to tell you the MPG figures for the 2018 Ford F-250 Superduty Crew cab as no official figures have been released for the 2018 model year. On a positive note however, our findings on the internet and the reviews of a few consumers indicate the Combined MPG figure of the 6.2L Gasoline motor to be somewhere around the 30MPG mark. The Diesel on the other hand supposedly delivers an Impressive 50MPG figure due to the Efficient Turbocharged Diesel Motor. But these all figures are just indicative but not accurate and we will update you once we get the Tested figures. The Fuel Tank capacity on the Gasoline Engine Crew Cab stands at 48 Gallons while in the Diesel Stands at 34 Gallons.

Interior

“Heavy-duty pickups were once home to the most barren and economical cabins on the market. In 2018, models such as the new Super Duty Limited can compete with the interiors of some of the best luxury cars around. Ford’s premier trim features exclusives such as camelback two-tone leather seats, a Micro Suede headliner, ash-wood trim, and other high-end touches. Every Limited also has its VIN laser etched on the center console armrest” –Caranddriver.com

Seating and Comfort

The Owner of a 2018 Ford F-150 Super Duty Crew Cab enjoys a lot of luxuries over its Regular Cab and Super Cab siblings. In the Crew Cab, you can easily seat at least 2 people in the back seat while seating 3 abreast wouldn’t be a problem. Getting into the Truck isn’t big of an issue and the Interiors themselves are Comfortable and Functional. There is generous use of Leather and good quality materials in the seats which have a lot of adjustability options themselves as per the passenger’s needs.

Exterior

“The Super Duty’s brawny exterior is emphasized by optional equipment such as power-adjustable trailer-towing mirrors with LED spotlights, a smorgasbord of assist-step choices, and the only panoramic sunroof in the class, to name a few.” – Car and Driver

Dimensions and Weights

With the Current generation of the F-250 Super Duty Trucks, Ford had taken the High Strength Steel and Aluminum route building the F-250 SuperDuty Crew Cab. This has led to tremendous weight saving by Ford and they themselves claim that this Weight Saving has allowed them to “upgrade” other parts of the Truck like the Frame, Axles, Leaf Springs, Transfer Case, Driveline and Trailer Hitches.

The Cabin is very roomy and can easily accommodate 4 passengers. Headroom is best in class which makes it comfortable for Tall Passengers while the long wheelbase allows for great Cargo Loading area.

Competition

Ford F-250 SuperDuty Crew Cab vs. RAM 2500 Tradesman Crew Cab

If size isn’t a big parameter for you while buying a Truck and you can do away with a Truck that will be needed for loading light loads or carrying small stuffs and not big on feature list, the RAM 2500 will be your best bet. However, if you are interested in Carrying bigger loads and have friends or family members who are more than 6ft Tall, the Ford will be the better buy for you.

Ford F-250 SuperDuty Crew Cab vs. Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Crew Cab

The Silverado has been one of the biggest rivals to the F-250 for a long time now. It offers a better standard equipment in the base variants than the Ford offers. The Chevrolet also has its nose ahead in terms of Front Passenger Space and practicality in terms of Storage Spaces. The Ford however has the Stronger Engine of the 2, better loading bay at the back and better Rear passenger space and comfort. So, if you intend to use your truck for Heavy Duty Loading purposes, the Ford will be the one that will have the edge.

Ford F-250 Superduty Crew Cab vs. GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab

The GM Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado have the same Engines, there are subtle differences in Chevy and GMC in terms of Loading Space and Interior Space. The GMC offers more overall Interior Space than the Ford and offers better standard equipment than the Ford in the base trim. But where the GMC shines in Interior Space, the Ford excels in Luggage Loading Area and the Payload Capacity.

Final Verdict

With the 2018 F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab, Ford has certainly paved the way for its next generation of Trucks. The Generous use of High Strength Steel in the Body and Military Grade Aluminum for Cargo Box has given the 2018 F-250 Super Duty 24 times more stiffness than the previous generation. This coupled with the excellent driving dynamics and load towing and carrying capacity makes the Ford one of the Segment Benchmarks. So, if you are in the market looking for a Heavy Duty Crew Cab Truck that is Stylish, Comfortable, Functional and “Built Tough”, the 2018 F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab should be on top of your shopping list.
