The Ford F 250 is Ford’s middle brand of full size pickup. Larger than the F 150 and slightly smaller than the F 350, the F 250 is a perfect mixture of rugged power and sleek style in a truck. The 2011 model is no exception, and it features a wide array of attractive options and amenities that are sure to help increase sales far and wide for this vehicle. There haven’t been major changes to the 2011 model of the Ford F 250 specs, but it’s still useful to compare the specs for this car with those of the other F series trucks, as it can be somewhat difficult to decide which one is the best to buy. Read on for a brief overview of the F 250 for the 2011 model year.
The Exterior of the Ford F 250 is largely unchanged from previous models. One exciting feature of the truck for the new model year is that the front grille, which has always been one of the dominant and most impressive features of the truck itself, has been slightly revamped and redesigned. Ford made every effort to turn this into a truly distinctive and sleek looking part of the Ford F series, and the F 250 received an ever so slight adjustment to the other exterior parts as well, simply in an effort to keep the appearance of the 2011 Ford F 250 up to date and along the lines of the smoothest and most stylish it could be.
Still, it’s important to remember that the F series by Ford is, above all, not a line of vehicles that are concerned particularly with outward appearance. At their core, these are working trucks, built with powerful engines and exceptionally sturdy frames to be able to handle a wide array of tasks.
Although the F 250 is not quite as powerful as the F 350, it is nonetheless capable of just about any construction, landscaping or hauling task that you could hope to complete at home. The engine is a 6.2 liter, two valve V8 that provides up to 385 horsepower and 405 foot-pounds of torque. This is an incredibly powerful vehicle, and while it is very heavy and, as a result, suffers from a poor gas mileage rating, it is capable of hauling hundreds and hundreds of pounds in the cabin and the flat bed or as a separate vehicle hitched to the back of the car.
The interior cabin of the 2011 Ford F 250 is stylish and functional. it features seating for 5 passengers, at maximum, although fitting that many people inside of the truck can make for a somewhat uncomfortable ride. There is not specific cargo room inside of the cabin; rather, it’s best to plan on storing any cargo in the truck bed.
The 2011 model is slated to be released in the fall of 2010 along with other new Ford models.
