If you need a truck that can handle the heavy-duty stuff, then you need the 2023 Ford F-250. Built to keep going, even when other trucks can't, the Ford F-250 isn't afraid to get its tires dirty. With a range of engine options, the F-250 is tailored to meet your needs. Whether you are looking for the performance of gas power or the brute strength of diesel, there is an engine option for you.
Features have been improved to make gooseneck and fifth-wheel towing as easy as conventional towing. With powerful engines and a sturdy build, the Ford F-250 has a max capacity of 23,000 pounds with the 6.7-liter high-output turbo-diesel V8 under the hood. The F-250 is built with a military-grade, high-strength aluminum alloy truck bed that can withstand anything you throw at it. From hood to box, the F-250 is one truly powerful machine.
Combined with a suite of towing and hauling tech, the Ford F-250 is no stranger to getting the job done right. Smart features such as Pro Trailer Hitch Assist provide a virtual helping hand when lining up to connect to a trailer. Trailer Theft Alert keeps your stuff safe by sending alerts in the case of an attempted theft. The Ford F-250 is even equipped with a unique 360-degree camera system designed to give you a bird's eye. Every feature of the Ford F-250 has been thoughtfully constructed to make driving, towing, and hauling easier, more convenient, and safer.
When you choose a super-duty truck, you get super-duty power. That's why the Ford F-250 is available with an assortment of powerfully aggressive engines that can tackle whatever you throw their way. The Ford F-250 offers either gas or diesel options, matching your needs. First up in this powerful lineup is the 6.8-liter V8. This engine is designed to produce plenty of torque from the start, thanks to port fuel injection, meaning you get the power and acceleration needed to take off with ease when towing and hauling. The V8 produces a whopping 405 horsepower and tops out at 445 lb-ft of torque to make sure you can handle it all.
The alternate gas-powered option is the 7.3-liter V8. Also port fuel injected, the 7.3-liter provides early torque support for stable and reliable takeoff. This engine sports a retro-style overhead valve design, a favorite due to its history of solid performance and reliability for heavy-duty vehicles. The 7.3-liter V8 gas produces an impressive 430 horsepower and cranks out 485 lb-ft of torque, which gets put to good use towing and hauling.
For those times that require extra muscle, diesel may be the only way to go. The first diesel-powered option is the 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel V8. Set up with an efficient fuel injection system, the engine utilizes fuel to the fullest extent, helping the engine work more efficiently. The result is 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque executed early on to provide reliable power from the start.
If that engine wasn't already impressive enough, Ford dropped a brand new High-Output 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel V8 engine that is sure to blow you away. With such extreme power output, the turbo-diesel is a class-leading powerhouse, producing 500 horsepower and 1,200 lb-ft of torque. It will be hard to find competition for this hard-hitting beast that will have you seeing stars when you hit the gas.
Both gas and diesel options are paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission, which functions in unison with the low RPM torque range to get you the smoothest takeoff. When hauling and towing, it's important to have all of your pieces work together seamlessly, which is why the combination of engine and transmission needs to be a masterpiece in itself. Selectable drive modes ensure you get the results you need to get the most from your truck.
It is pretty tough to match the capabilities of a heavy-duty truck, and when it comes to towing and hauling, the 2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty reigns supreme. When properly equipped, the F-250 has the potential to tow up to 23,000 pounds with the high-output diesel engine. The F-250 also has a payload cap of 4,302 pounds, which means nothing gets left behind when you are on the road to adventure.
The Ford F-250 isn't just brute strength. Thanks to a laundry list of available tech, the Ford F-250 also has the brains to use that strength. One of the most vital pieces of equipment when it comes to hitching is a camera system, but of course, the F-250 doesn't have just a plain old camera system. Rather, it's equipped with a 360-Degree Trailer Camera System that nearly eliminates blind spots. For any pesky blind spots that do still exist, the Blind Spot Information System for Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck program takes care of them. Previous tech used to be limited to conventional towing, but now you can tow it all with ease and confidence. The Blind Spot System will indicate if there is a vehicle to the side of the trailer, keeping you and your truck safer.
It's always nice to have a little help, which is where the Pro Trailer Hitch Assist comes in. Some features are cool, but this one is downright awesome. When you need to hitch up, press and hold the Trailer Hitch Assist, and the truck will take over, guiding your vehicle to the perfect position to easily hook up.
This isn't the only smart tech that makes things easier when it comes to towing and hauling. The F-250 features Onboard Scales with Smart Hitch. This feature estimated the cargo weight while being loaded. It then notifies you via the infotainment screen within the cab, the FordPass app, or even through the taillamps. The taillamps display light-up bars to indicate the amount of weight you have left before reaching the max rating.
Whatever you tow, you want to make sure the road you take won't slow you down. That's why the F-250 is available with Trailer Navigation. This program uses entered dimensions and weight of the attached trailer to determine the safest route to take. Another feature that makes things easier and safer when towing and hitching is the Tailgate Down Camera and Tailgate Down Reverse Sensing System. This system is a first for the industry, offering a notification when backing up to hitch if the tailgate is down.
A truck like the F-250 can't be put in a box. It is more than a workhorse, offering plenty of features for day-to-day driving and weekend fun. That's why it also features plenty of tech to make your days more convenient and safe.
Keep your head up with the available Head-Up Display, which projects important driver information onto the windshield so you can keep your eyes on the road where they belong. Let it project information like the local speed limit or customize it to project your desired information in a place you choose on the windshield.
For that weekend getaway, use your truck as a Wi-Fi hotspot thanks to FordPass Connect with 5G. Use the Wi-Fi hotspot even when outside of the vehicle, thanks to its 50-foot range. In fact, let the whole family use it. You can connect up to ten devices at a time, allowing you to share with everyone. When you're inside the truck, enjoy the standard eight-inch infotainment screen or upgrade to the available 12-inch screen. Enjoy the available split screen feature, which allows you to view two apps at once. View navigation and pull up music or connect to your smartphone. Here you can access programs like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can connect to your compatible smart device. You can even utilize Alexa from your vehicle, thanks to the built-in Alexa hands-free function.
There are even more features available with SYNC 4, like software updates via Wi-Fi to keep your truck up-to-date, built-in Nav, and even a wireless owner's manual. Ditch the book in the glove box and learn everything you need to from the infotainment screen and SYNC 4. Don't forget to also have some fun. Enjoy the eight-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system. For even more fun, upgrade to the eighteen-speaker Bang and Olufsen Unleashed Sound System that will fill your F-250 with sound.
