From the Test Track
A 2011 freshening brought a new Ford-built 6.7-liter V8 that is mated to a new six-speed automatic. Stepping into the cabin is difficult because of the high floor. A nice touch is the optional folding stepladder, which retracts into the tailgate. Other conveniences include built-in wiring for accessories and built-in controls for proportional braking when towing a trailer. Handling is very clumsy even for a heavy-duty truck; very low emergency handling scores prevent us from recommending the F-250.

Best truck for the money by Dan from Wisconsin on 01/18/2013. Trim: 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT Crew Cab Long Bed 4WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Have owned my XLT for almost 5 months now and I am very impressed with the ride of the truck. I have the diesel so there is never a lack of power. Have put almost 20,000 miles on the truck already and the fuel milage is great. Have owned Chevy and Dodge's in the past, and this is by far the best truck I have owned.
Cons: Wish the seats didn't sit as high. I am 6'4" and I feel that I am always looking through the top 8" of the windshield.
Overall review: Great truck, no repairs needed yet other than 4,000 mile oil changes. Ford definatly did their homework and kept up their tradition of the best truck in class. Truck has no problems towing 12,000 pounds behind it at highway speeds.
