2006 Ford F-250 - XLT 4x2 SD Crew Cab Long Box
Pros: Very roomy cabin, comfortable ride on longer distances
Cons: Some useful options are only available with full, expensive packages
Advice: Get the diesel engine and tow commandThe new F250 Super Duty with Crew Cab is one of the roomiest trucks I have driven so far. Both the front and the back offers plenty of room and legroom. My truck came with the 60/40 split bench in the back, which can be folded back. Underneath an extendable steel floor for dirty hauls in the back of the cabin. I bought the F250 with the optional diesel engine and automatic transmission. While adding a whopping $6K to the cost, I highly recommend the diesel engine to evrybody. The engine has been rrdesigned for better fuel economy and the torque cannot be beat. I also opted for the tow command, which makes hauling huge trailers with up to 12.5K lbs much safer. Face it, many employees lack the driving skills, and tow command can make up for some lack thereof. Overall, a well built vehicle with plenty of comfort for a workhorse truck, and lots of payload for when you need it.
