Ford F-250 Super Duty Vehicle Information
For 40 years now, Ford has had the best-selling line of trucks in America with their F-Series, and one of the most trusted titans among that series is the F-250. Solid, rugged, and ready to tackle whatever you throw at it, the 2018 F-250 continues to be one of most sought after pickups in Orlando FL.
Ford has always made safety a priority in their vehicles, and the new F-250 is proof of that. Among standard safety tech is the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC), a feature that works by automatically sensing any wheel slippage and then altering the engine’s torque to fix that issue. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will always alert you if any of your tires have pressure below the recommended safe limit. Available safety options include the Blind Spot Information System, which utilizes sensors in the rear of your vehicle to detect when another vehicle enters your blind spot and then alerts you to the situation. Also available are the rear view camera and Reverse Sensing System, both of which will work to assist you while backing up so that there is no chance of collision.
Another priority with Ford is sturdiness and performance. The 2018 F-250 delivers on both of those fronts. Under the hood, this pickup can have either a gas or diesel engine. The 6.2 liter (L) 2-valve V8 FFV gas engine is rated at 385 horsepower (hp) and 430 pound feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 6.7 L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine pours out 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission to deliver the best power output possible.
No real pickup is complete without pulling prowess. The new F-250 can do some towing and then some. For optimum towing capacity, it only makes sense to choose the 5th wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Prep, High Capacity Trailer Tow, or 9900 pound (lb) Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) packages (depending on your towing needs). Take advantage of the F-Series Super Duty’s reputation for best-in-class towing by being able to tow with ease while driving around with a maximum payload. Standard and available features like the trailer sway control, the Trailer brake controller with Smart Trailer Tow Connector, and the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera make hitching up and pulling both safer and more convenient than they ever have been before.
Convenience is something every new vehicle should offer, and to that end the 2018 F-250 has plenty to look forward to. Along with area lamps for the cargo area and truck box, there are additional available convenience features like a 110-volt/400-watt power outlet, an engine block heater, LED box lighting, and LED side view mirror spotlights. You can go the extra mile in protecting your truck by opting to get skid plates for the fuel tank and transfer case, and a spray-in bedliner to keep the box from getting any dents, scratches, or rust.
For the Orlando driver who needs a truck for work purposes, the F-250 has more than enough for your tools and equipment. With a Regular Cab (4x4), you will get 7160 lbs of payload storage with the eight-foot box. A SuperCab (4x4) has a payload capacity of 4624 lbs with the 6.75-foot box and 6780 lbs with the eight-foot box. The Crew Cab (4x4) has 4470 lbs of payload capacity with the 6.75-foot box and 6540 lbs with the eight-foot box. Passenger capacity varies depending on cab size, with a Crew Cab being the best choice if you are frequently driving with more than two passengers.
People frequently come to Greenway Ford looking for a truck that can work hard and stay dependable, and that is why we point them in the direction of Ford’s 2018 F-250. The F-Series are bestsellers in America for a number of reasons, and the new F-250 is yet another sterling example of this commitment to excellence in action.
