I’ve been loyal to Dodge Ram for years. It used to be “The Truck” for me until last year when I had to buy a new truck as an emergency to replace our Dodge that stopped working and no mechanic would save it for less than a couple of thousands of dollars. For lack of time, options and enough money, I ended up buying a used 2016 Ford F-150 Super Crew for the first time. What a great truck! It absolutely exceeded my expectations! The bed is slightly smaller than in the Dodge, but all the other features make it irrelevant. Very powerful engine with impressive towing capabilities (my husband and I have been pulling pretty heavy stuff like our 20’f boat and a camper), great space in the cab, not to mention how much of fuel economy we got with the 2.7 EcoBoost. Except for my first Apple MacBo... (more)
Story
The first weekend with the new truck my husband and I went for a lake fishing. After a few complaints from me on that, he would never let me launch the boat even after taught me the steps and repeated that a thousand time what to do in case of an emergency, etc. That day he finally let me tow the boat to the launch ramp, untrap it and challenged me to get it all set up on my own. Very confiden... (more)
Pros
Fuel Economy is the main aspect for sure, but also how comfortable the F-150 is.
Cons
The bed size. It's not small, just smaller than what I was used to have with the Dodge so that took me a while to adapt.

This vehicle was purchased to be a third truck in our Ford "lineup." We were putting too many miles on our two newer trucks and decided to go for an older, trusted model. It was in great working condition but was not at all pretty when we bought it. It was three colors, and there wasn't a headliner or carpet. But it ran like a top and got the same mileage as our other trucks. It was just what we needed with just a regular cab just big enough for the two of us.
Story
So this isn't so fun but funny in hindsight. We were driving it the first summer. We had it in the Buffalo area and started to hear this awful grinding and thumping noise. We expected the worst and thought we'd be replacing all sorts of parts so we parked it for almost a month until we could take a good look at it. Turns out the lugnuts were loose on the front wheel. We parked it for no reason... (more)
Pros
The motor is the best part. The 7.3 L Diesel engine runs as good as it did 21 years ago. It is a very reliable motor and easy to find parts for if needed. Also, the simple body style was what we wanted. We were so used to our other trucks with fancy body lines and full crew cabs and leather and all the bells and whistles. Also the eight-foot bed was a perk because our beds are smaller on the other trucks. We can haul a lot more in the bed than the other two and still tow a good amount of weight as well.
Cons
We had to put a lot of money into this vehicle to get it looking how we wanted it. It ran and worked great but needed a lot of TLC in the form of money. We had to paint it and find several parts that needed replacing from twenty years of wear and tear. The biggest frustration when we got the truck was that we had a problem with the shifter not staying in gear. It started to roll away from me once in the driveway. Turns out there was just a screw loose, but it took a mechanic to figure it out.

The 1989 Ford F-250 eight-cylinder pickup truck was manufactured at a time in this country when Ford still cared about quality and comfort. It is not only just a work truck but also one that can be used for recreation/camping with the family. Three adults can sit in the cab; there's plenty of space in the eight-foot bed for a canoe, tents, camping supplies and chairs. The model truck I have has a 302 5-liter engine that was primarily made for towing. So it can easily pull a camper, pontoon boat or trailer with no problem. It is a two-wheel drive, which has not proved to be a hindrance in the winter snow -- just put additional weight in the back over the axle and off you go! The engine has not had any major problems other than typical faults any other truck made in 1989 might experience... (more)
Story
The most fun I've had with the family is pulling a pontoon boat out to the lake with all the camping gear -- tents, chairs, coolers, etc. -- in the big eight-foot bed. Plus, you can go to the drive-in, back up to the screen and sit in lawn chairs in the back of the bed.
Pros
Dependable, reliable, well-built engine. Large eight-foot bed. Can haul trailers, campers and boats. Well painted; hardly any rust after many years. Large windshield and side mirrors.
Cons
Not great on gas. About 12 miles in city; 15 on highway. Problem in the 1980s models with the steering column and lock cylinder.

Ford F-250 Generations

Ford’s F-250 is part of the brand's Super Duty lineup of heavy-duty models. It's a more robust and capable cousin of Ford's venerable F-150 truck and features unique styling. It's usually available with either a gas or diesel engine in a wide variety of cab and bed configurations. There are also F-350 through F-650 iterations.

2017 - Present (Fourth Generation)

The big news for this generation was Ford's use of aluminum for the body of the Super Duty models much like the F-150; Ford continued to make the frame out of steel. This lighter body helped the F-250 shed almost 750 pounds.

The 6.2-liter gas V8 engine and the 6.7 diesel V8 engine carried over from the previous generation though each was retuned for slightly more torque. The F-250 also picked up a new six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety features were improved and added for 2018. These include adaptive cruise control and a pre-collision assistance system with pedestrian detection ability.

Trim levels include the base XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. The Limited trim joined the lineup for 2018. All models come in 4x2 and 4x4 versions.

2011 - 2016 (Third Generation)

This model was introduced for 2011 and featured even bolder and prominent exterior designs and included a new optional locking differential.

A new 6.2-liter V8 gas engine made 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque; the V10 option was dropped for F-250 models in this generation. A new 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel V8 initially had 390 horsepower and 735 pound-feet of torque though Ford quickly upgraded it to 400 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque to stay competitive with rivals.

In 2015, it upgraded the PowerStroke diesel yet again to 440 horsepower and 860 pound-feet of torque. The manual transmission was dropped and a six-speed automatic was standard on all models.

2008 - 2010 (Second Generation)

The second-generation of F-250 came out in 2008. It featured more rugged and bold styling and came in a variety of trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, Cabela's, King Ranch and Harley Davidson (this last model was a new limited-edition model for the Super Duty series).

The 5.4-liter V8 and the 6.8-liter V10 engines carried over from the previous generation while a new 6.4-liter diesel V8 was added that made 350 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

A five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission was offered.

1999 - 2007 (First Generation)

In 1998 -- for the 1999 model year -- Ford rolled the heavy-duty models into the Super Duty family; the F-250 would remain under this subbrand until present day.

The Super Duty models were highlighted by upgraded chassis and suspension components that gave them a higher payload and towing.

The engines available ranged from a 255-horsepower 5.4-liter V8 to an optional 310-horsepower 6.8-liter V10 with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. There were three cab options: Standard two-door, a Super Cab with two small reverse-opening rear doors, and a Crew Cab with four full-sized doors and seating for up to six people.

In 2005, Ford gave its Super Duty trucks an update that included new interior and exterior designs, larger brakes, larger wheels (to fit the brakes) and an increase in horsepower (to 300 from 255 on the V8 and to 362 from 310 on the V10) and alternator strength.

1992 - 1997 (Ninth Generation)

In 1992 the hoodline was lowered and the front fenders and grille rounded even more in that never-ending quest for improved aerodynamics. Once again, the interior was redesigned as well. In 1996 engine options included a 4.9-liter I6, as well as 5.0- and 5.8-liter V8s, as well as a 7.5-liter big-block V8 and a 7.3-liter Powerstroke V8 turbo diesel. The F-250 HD, had significant differences from the standard F-250. These included a heavier rear axle and heavier springs and shocks.

1987 - 1991 (Eighth Generation)

For the 1987 model year, further aerodynamic improvements were made, and an interior makeover took place as well. Supercab models were offered with four- and five-speed manual transmissions and the regular cab models were automatic. 1988 brought electronic fuel injection to the 4.9-liter inline-six engine as well as to the 5.8- and 7.5-liter V8s

1980 - 1986 (Seventh Generation)

No changes specific to the F-250 were introduced in this generation, but the F-Series had a complete redesign from the chassis on up. Aerodynamics was the primary focus of exterior restyling. The 5.8 Liter 351M and 6.6-Liter 400 M-Series V8 engines were replaced with 4.2-Liter and 5.8-Liter Windsor engines from the Panther platform in 1981. In 1982 and 1983, the the base engine was a 3.8-Liter Essex V6. Ford finally added a 6.9-liter diesel powr to the F-Series. Electronic fuel injection made its debut in 1985 on the 5.0-liter V8.

In 1982 the Ford “Blue Oval” made its first appearance front and center on the truck’s front grille. Amenities like power door locks, mirrors and windows also first showed up in this generation of the F-Series.

1973 - 1979 (Sixth Generation)

This generation saw the addition of front disc brakes and a gas tank that was relocated outside of the cab to lie beneath the bed. Heating and AC were improved and more of this model was crafted from galvanized steel. In 1976 the FE engine series was retired and replaced with 351 and 400 series engines. 1979 was the final year for the 460 big block engine.

1967 - 1972 (Fifth Generation)

The F-Series continued to be built on the same platform, and all 1969 F-Series models had 100 percent interchangeable suspension components.

1961 - 1966 (Fourth Generation)

1961 brought the unpopular longer, lower unibody design style, which disappeared in 1964. This generation of the F-Series introduced a front suspension style called “Twin I-Beam” which the F-250 used until 2016.

1957 - 1960 (Third Generation)

While there were no changes specific to the F-250, this generation brought a few F-Series changes such as front fenders being integrated with the body and a new bed design made for smoother lines.

1953 - 1956 (Second Generation)

The 1953 model year saw the emergence of the F-250 as its predecessors, known as the F-2 and F-3, were phased out. While the major body parts did not change, there was a redesign of the cab and dashboard, but most significantly, the rear window – which was offered with a panoramic option.

1948 - 1952 (First Generation)

The F-Series originated as the “Bonus-Built” in 1948 with eight different weight ratings and body styles that included cab-over-engine (COE), conventional truck, panel truck, pickup and school bus chassis.
