So if you are checking out trucks that can do it all, this article is for you.
Let's explore what the 2008 Ford F250 packs for comfort, performance and safety.
In 2008 Ford took a major leap forward toward comfort with its F250 series. Where it used to lack in the cab area, this year they stepped up to the plate to offer the added comfort to one of the most powerful work trucks available.
The XL and XLT models are regular cabs and suitable for the owner who simply uses the truck for work purposes only. The XL has vinyl seats and the XLT has cloth seats. Options such as air conditioning, MP3 jack, CD player, chrome wheels and all power accessories as well as cruise control can be added for additional comfort.
All trim levels offer a special step that folds down with the tailgate to make access into the bed much easier.
Additional options available are back seat DVD player, power folding and telescopic mirrors, a navigation system and reverse park assist.
The Lariat trim offers leather seats, power seat for the driver, dual zone climate controls and 18 inch alloy wheels. This baby is the cream of the crop when it comes to the F250 pickup.
Next to comfort, you will also find excellent performance when it comes to the 2008 Ford F250 pickup. All members in this line up are offered in 2 or 4 wheel drive, as well as a choice of a 5 speed automatic or a 6 speed manual transmission. The engine choices from the strongest to the lesser are 6.4 liter Power Stroke turbo diesel (350 hp and 650 lb-ft torque) or a 6.8 liter V10 (362 hp and 457 lb-ft torque) down to the starting point a 5.4 liter gasoline V8 (300 hp and 365 lb-ft torque).
The engine has dual turbo chargers, one for speedy response and a larger one for carrying the load.
This quarter ton truck can haul 12,500 pounds and has a combined load weight of 23,500 if properly equipped. This affords you the opportunity to haul anything from yard materials from Home Depot to a boat the size of a small townhome!
From reliability to safety the 2008 Ford F250 has it all. In order to keep the driver and his passengers safe the F250 offers antilock brakes. With the automatic transmissions the XLT and the Lariat offer power adjusted pedals. The negative side is that this pickup does not come with side or side curtain airbags.
There you have it.
