2005 Ford F-250 - XLT 4x4 SD Super Cab Short Box
Pros: Powerstroke V-8 Turbo Diesel.
Cons: Everything is an option unless you buy a Lariat.
Advice: If you plan on towing anythingI own a 79 F-350 and a 78 Supercab F-250 and I`m a Ford die-hard. I just bought a 2005 Superduty XLT Supercab with the automatic, Powerstroke 6.0, 4x4. WOW. Takes off like a rocket. Excellent fuel mileage pulling my 22` closed trailer. Rides like a Cadillac. Stupendous job Ford. What a masterpiece. Keep up the good work.
2005 Ford F-250 - XL 4x4 SD Super Cab Long Box
Cons: Diesel went up to equal premium gas after I bought it.
Advice: You will not be sorryRides like it was machined from a solid block of oil. I bought it to tow my 27' boat and have been impressed. If I kick it in 4WD, I think I could tow it up a tree.
2005 Ford F-250 - Lariat 4x4 SD Crew Cab Short Box
Pros: The interior fit and finish/comfort.
Cons: Incredibly difficult to park in the city. Wish the truck had front bumber sensors along with the back!
Advice: Dodge has the best motor on the market (Cummins), but the rest of the truck is less than desirable!Purchased this vehicle last month and have close to 900 miles on it and love it! Have the Powerstroke Diesel in the King Ranch addition and believe that the performance and comfort of the truck is above the GM and Dodge offerings. The interior is a step above in quality feel and appearance and enjoy the amenities the truck offers. Researched the big three trucks for months and test drove them all numerous times and I am confident that I made the right investment. Absolutely no problems within my first month of ownership and would definetely recommend the truck to others.
