New 2014 Ford F-250 Review
For Sale @ Northway Ford Brantford (between Hamilton & Cambridge)
The 2014 Ford F-250 is a heavy duty Super Duty truck that offers the capability and dependability to get the job done.
This is a big truck with lots of space, power and hauling capacity. It is designed to compete with the likes of Chevrolet Silverado, Ram 2500 or GMC so has its work cut out to maintain top spot.
The exterior or the 2014 Ford F-250 is no-nonsense. It's tall, long, wide and looks the part. There are no aerodynamics and no frippery here. It's all about engine delivery, cargo capacity and hauling power.
The slab front is all chrome with a big blue oval front and center. Big lights flank a huge expanse of chrome that lead to flat sides, a long wheelbase, tall cabin and large loadbed. Wide mirrors, wheel arches and a kick plate offer the only real adornment.
Inside, the same rule applies. It's all business but with a quality twist. The huge windshield offers great visibility, the big mirrors allow you to see all round and there is plenty of leg and headroom, no matter how big you are.
The seats are comfortable and well-sprung, the wheel is big, rugged and comfortable to hold. The gauges are clear, switches solid and the center stack within easy reach. There are also cubby holes and cup holders to ease the journey too.
To keep the wheels turning, Ford have used a 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 that delivers an impressive 290 hp and 735 lb-ft of torque. There is also the option of a 6.2-liter gas motor that delivers 285 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Ford F-250 is rated to tow 14,000 lbs, with a combined weight rating of 23,500 lbs. Add fifth-wheel towing to that and you can increase tow to 16,800 lbs.
The Ford F-250 comes as two-door, four-door and four-door SuperCab and five trim levels, XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. The base XL offers steel wheels, black grille and exterior trim, A/C and radio. XLT adds aluminum wheels, chrome trim, heated mirrors, cruise control, keyless entry, power windows, Ford Sync and Bluetooth.
The F-250 Lariat adds alloy wheels, rear parking sensor, remote start, climate control, leather interior, colour LCD screen, wood trim, adjustable seating, MyFord Touch and an 8 inch LED infotainment screen. King Ranch adds two-tone pain options, body coloured trim, navigation, leather interior and heated seats.
Platinum adds 20 inch alloy wheels, tailgate step, wood interior trim, upgraded leather interior and heated steering wheels.
The 2014 Ford F-250 is easy to drive, simple to operate and extremely capable in any condition. If you need to carry, transport or haul anything, it's definitely worth a look.
