The Ford F250 XLT. Love It Or Hate It

Aug 17, 2007
If you're looking for a big pick up that's got plenty of power and room in the back, the Ford F250 XLT 4x2 certainly fits the bill. While the Ford F250 is big and rugged, it's a different story once you climb inside the cabin. The F250 has been a popular choice in Australia for many years and it seems that this will be unlikely to change any time soon.

The Ford F250 XLT 4x2 is a huge luxury pick up truck that dwarfs over the Japanese models such as the Toyota Hilux and the Mitsubishi Triton. The F250 is not only a lot bigger; it's much more expensive as well. In fact, a new F250 XLT 4x2 will set you back over $62,000, so if you're after one of these behemoths, you may just have to look for a good one owner used vehicle.

The Ford F250 XLT 4x2 is available in a Super Cab and Crew Cab version. They are powered by a 5.4 litre V8 petrol engine, so if you are concerned about rising fuel prices, you may need to look at something a little smalle, and in diesel. The V8 engine is coupled to a four speed automatic transmission.

If you like a little comfort when you're behind the wheel of your pick up, then the F250 shouldn't disappoint. Inside the spacious cabin of both the Super Cab and the Crew Cab, you'll find premium cloth trim seats, six disc, in dash CD player, air conditioning and a fully adjustable, soft feel steering wheel as standard equipment. Cruise control is also standard as are power windows and remote entry.

Safety options include four wheel ABS braking as well as driver and front passenger airbags. The Ford F250 also has a limited slip diff for when you're driving on the rough stuff or in hazardous weather conditions.

Both versions of the Ford F250 are powered by a 5.4 litre V8 engine that produces 194 kw of power at 4,500rpm and produces a hefty 475Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. The power of the V8 coupled with the 4 speed automatic transmission makes the F250 a great option for towing larger boats, caravans and horse floats as the towing capacity is a massive 3.5 tonnes. And if you want to throw your tools in the back as well, then the payload allows up to 1.5 tonnes. .

For many, the F250 will not be a suitable option as it is hard to park, chews through the fuel and tends to invoke certain stereotypical views about their owners. However, for others, the F250 will probably be the only option worthy of consideration. It's a love it or hate it kind of vehicle.
