The Ford F-250 is a full-size pickup truck that competes with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and Ram 2500.
Even as the entry point to Ford’s Super Duty truck lineup, the F-250 shares most of its physical and mechanical traits with the more capable – and expensive – F-350 pickup. With six trim choices and price tags that can reach nearly $100,000 with options, the F-250 can be configured as anything from a basic work truck to a fully loaded luxury vehicle. Updates for the 2019 model year include available 4G LTE hotspot capabilities, available B&O Play Premium Audio and new appearance packages for certain trim levels.
