Expert Insight

  • In 1999, Edmunds.com voted Ford's F-250 Super Duty as "most wanted" in the $10,000 to $25,000 price range. The Edmunds editors praised the number of styles to choose from and the truck's horsepower and torque, but noted the interior was not refined.

Considerations

  • The Ford F-250 is popular among people who need a vehicle for hauling. Heavy cargo can reduce fuel efficiency, so if you are hauling a trailer or boat, the truck's gas mileage will be lower.

Misconceptions

Potential

  • Gas-saving devices that are found to be effective are keeping your engine warm, not idling for too long, keeping your vehicle tuned up, properly inflating tires and driving at a steady pace.
